Reminder: Quality Assurance engagement for your Centre is now every year - book yours in now

Centres are reminded that Quality Assurance now takes place on an annual basis for each academic year. This is conducted by either a visit to the Centre from a Quality Assurance Officer (QAO) or a 'remote' review, where course evidence is asked to be sent in to the QAO. For any questions on this please contact the Senior Quality Assurance Officer in your region.

Learner registration must be within eight weeks from course start date

All Centres must supply their leaner numbers and learner details that are undertaking the qualification within eight weeks of the course start date. If the centre fails to submit these details, the centre will be placed on hold under Non-Compliance and this may lead to an investigation being raised. This will result in your Centre being charged a minimum of £250 for the investigation procedure. Please refer to Sports Leaders UK’s Malpractice and Maladministration policy for further details and guidance.

Charges introduced for sending original documents back after remote quality assurance review

We advise Centres to send photocopies or electronic files for remote quality assurance review, not original documents.

We have experienced an increase in the amount of original documents being sent for quality assurance review. Resultantly, from the 1st February 2018, we will now be charging cenres for any postage charges incurred during this process to return original documents back to the Centre.

SCN required for allocation of insight tariff points

We will be contacting in the upcoming weeks to let you know how many Insight tariff points our new SCQF qualifications will give your Centre. Insight tariff points can be awarded to any learner that has completed the new SCQF qualifications highlighted above.

To get Insight points for your Centre you will now require to give Scottish Candidate Numbers (SCN) for each of your learners when you register your learners through LEAP. Failure to give complete and accurate SCNs will result in Insight tariff points not being allocated.

If you have already registered learners you can still add SCNs. Access your course through LEAP, click on your learners and add the SCN to their details.

New Policies and procedures for all Cenres to come into effect in February

In line with Sports Leaders UK’s self-assessment we have conducted a review of our policies and procedures.  The review has resulted in some changes to the policies and procedures to help clarity aspects of these policies for  Centres.  Through this process we have also separated out the Whistleblowing policy from the Complaints policy to improve the communication of how the policy and procedure should be implemented. 

An additional policy for Centres that have had Centre approval withdrawn following investigation has also been created to help this transition following a sanction being imposed.

The changes that have been made are summarised on the link here.  The new policies will come into effect from the 1st of February 2018.  All new policies and procedures can be accessed through the link here.
