The City & Guilds Quality Assurance Model is a risk-based strategy that follows the key steps shown in this diagram. This is an ongoing process designed to tailor quality assurance support activities to the specific needs of each centre.
Step 1: The Quality Teams will review the information it has regarding the centre, and the specific risks attached to each qualification.
Step 2: If the Quality Teams assess that it is required, they will create a quality assurance activity planner (normally covering 12 months) that will meet the specific centre needs.
Step 3: These quality assurance activities are then implemented and monitored to ensure that they are providing appropriate support for centres. Planned activities can be amended if necessary to reflect the changing needs of the centre and/or City & Guilds requirements.
Detailed information on the centre and qualification approval process can be found in the City & Guilds Centre Manual.
