We are responsible for making sure all training funded through National Training Programmes (NTPs) is of high quality and benefits the learner.

All our funded learning providers are required to demonstrate that they meet SDS quality standards by completing a self assessment and action plan detailing areas of improvement.

Self Assessment (SA) and Quality Action Plan (QAP)

All providers should read the new Quality Assurance and Improvement Framework and Guidance documents before starting their self assessment process. Use the new Self Assessment and Quality Action Plan workbook to record your actions, achievements and improvements.
