For courses or qualifications delivered by different tutors
Internal Centre Standardisation
Where the same course or qualification is delivered by different tutors the centre is expected to undertake standardisation activity. Centres are referred to the relevant section of the Open College Network West Midlands Centre Handbook for guidance.
We offer a range of training courses/qualifications to support centres with their quality assurance processes.
Open College Network West Midlands Standardisation
Open College Network West Midlands will periodically request samples of assessed work in relation to specified:
- Customised units
- Open College Network West Midlands qualifications
Open College Network West Midlands uses this material to support the development of a consistent approach by members of the Quality Team and to confirm the consistent application of standards across centres delivering the same or similar provision.
Feedback to Centres
Feedback to centres on the outcomes of regional and national standardisation activity is provided through Open College Network West Midlands Standardisation Feedback Reports and dissemination events held throughout the year.
