Welcome to the QNUK Events page!

As a leading Awarding Organisation, we know the importance of continually developing professionally.

We support our centres in accessing free and paid for training, qualifications and CPD.

Having taken on QNUK in 2013, we have decided to celebrate this milestone with a conference for our centres to attend.

While there will be a range fo subject related talks from guest speakers, we are also taking the opportunity to have a focus on business development. Whether you are looking to stabilise your business post COVID, looking to grow it with a potential to sell or to pass on to family or you simply want to make the business easier to run with regular clients, we think we have something for you.

Whats the worst that can happen? You still get to spend a day with the QNUK and likeminded centres.

Please note, places are limited, so book today!

QNUK Centre Standardisation Workshop

A MUST ATTEND event in 2023, these workshops are aimed at main contacts and IQAs, however we strongly recommend that trainers also attend.

We appreciate compliance is not everyone's cup of tea, but it is needed for 2023, to make it more palatable we have made it free!

These virtual events are not recorded, so attending online is a MUST.

Historically we have found that those who have attended our #RaisingStandards and #MaintainingStandards have a much better understanding of how to ensure their centre remains compliant. Those that have not attended are more likely to be the centres that fall into sanctions or are investigated for malpractice; often simply through oversight.

To ensure all of our centres have the same opportunity to keep inline with their responsibilities; the event is MANDATORY for main contacts and IQAs.

During the 90 minutes we will have videos and discussions around what 2022 looked like in terms of compliance and how to avoid the pit-falls for 2023.

Modules include:

· What's the point of having a regulated qualifications market?

· Can I.....? The top 10 FAQs you probably wanted to ask

· What's reasonable in reasonable adjustments?

· The conflict of conflicts of interest

· Open forum

This is only open to QNUK centres and trainers.

Assessor and IQA Training Day

This online workshop is perfect for those needing to attend a CPD day for Assessors and IQAs delivering and quality assuring qualifications.

This course has evolved from the First aid assessor IQA training day that many first aid trainers and quality assurers require when delivering regulated qualifications.

This online course meets the requirements outlined by the FAAOF but is also acceptable for QNUK centres delivering low risk qualifications assessed by MCQ and observations.

We strongly recommend this course for trainers and heads of centres to attend, and many experienced IQA's have found this CPD beneficial.

The course covers:

  • Principles of assessment
  • The role of the assessor
  • Making valid assessment decisions
  • Recording assessment decisions
  • Quality Assurance
  • The role of the IQA
  • Quality assuring the learners journey
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Identifying and managing potential malpractice events

The course is available to QNUK centres and those working through other Awarding Organisations, however only QNUK policies and procedures are covered.

Course fee £80
