Delivering High Quality Apprenticeships at Crosby Management Training
CMT is committed to delivering high quality apprenticeship training for employers, apprentices and students on commercial and funded learning programmes.
Continuous quality improvement is essential for meeting the needs of learners and employers, accreditation with awarding organisations, performance improvement, and business continuity and growth.
You may have noticed in our CEO’s bio that he chairs the IfATE’s Quality Committee, so quality is our daily mantra and at the very top of our agenda.
We continually review our quality assurance processes to ensure they are relevant and compliant.
At the time of writing our policies, procedures and processes are all designed to support our apprenticeship delivery as we have been delivering funded apprenticeships since 2010, and as a main provider on Register of Approved Training Providers (RoTAP) since June 2017.
We have two important policies:
Quality Assurance Policy – Assessment, EPA & IQA
Quality Assurance Policy – Training and Learner Progress.
Our internal Quality Assurance Policy sets out:
‘the process and arrangements for ensuring that apprentices and students have fair access and participation in assessment, that assessment is well managed and carried out effectively, and that assessment is internally quality assured’.
It also states that:
‘Qualifications will be assessed by internally or externally by trained and approved assessors. All assessors will achieve relevant occupational qualifications and will meet the minimum requirements for occupational competence, as set out in the relevant Qualification Handbook. Trainer/Assessors will meet on a regular basis to plan, carry out assessment activity and review progress with learners’
CMT use the Quality Statement developed and published by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) as a core reference point for our work on apprenticeships. This helps us define quality and is used when designing and delivering our own apprenticeship programmes.
The Quality Strategy published by the IfATE sets out best practice expectations before, during, and after apprenticeships. The Strategy was developed by regulatory bodies, concerned with ensuring apprenticeship quality, that formed the Quality Alliance.
CMT is on the Register of Approved Training Providers to deliver ESFA funded apprenticeships, levy and non-levy. CMT ensures compliance with ESFA funding regulations and financial audit requirements.
