A well established, niche market training provider seeks a highly competent, very hands on Quality Manager to manage the running of the quality department of their apprenticeship provision.  Whilst this is a managerial role and will need great leadership skills, it is also a hands on quality role where you will be reporting directly to the Quality Director.

This training provider is aiming for Ofsted Outstanding, so you need to be someone who has either worked for an Ofsted Outstanding apprenticeship provider, or are someone who wants to be instrumental in the journey to get them there and all that it entails. 

You will be managing a small team who's focus is to ensure that all Awarding Body standards are met and maintained.

Drawing upon your expertise, you'll be working closely with the Quality Manager where you will be an integral part of the constant updating and innovation of the company's quality standards, ensuring the processes are efficient and highly effective. 

Naturally, you will play a huge part in ensuring the company is Ofsted ready and you will manage this process.

To you, it will be important that the learner journey is a positive one and part of your role will be to ensure that completions are on time and that will involve organising EPA.

Over the years this company has consistently demonstrated their commitment to continual professional development of each of its members of staff.  This means you will have your own CPD plan in place and be able to set your own development activities, which may mean gaining additional qualifications that will enhance your operational efficiency and your career prospects.

  • It is vital that you have previously and recently managed the quality processes and procedures of an organisation delivering an apprenticeship provision. 
  • You will have hands on experience of the New Apprenticeship Standards and what it means from a quality perspective.
  • You will have experience of Ofsted visits and have played a major role in their planning, preparation and smooth running.
  • You will have worked for an Ofsted Good or Outstanding company and be driven to achieve Outstanding. 
  • You will possess formal quality and teaching qualifications, ideally to a minimum of level 4. 
  • You will have strong managerial skills but you will have hands on experience of being a Quality Manager and all the relevant systems and processes.
