Introducing your vocational quality advisors

Welcome to your dedicated quality nominee support hub.

We're busy setting up our annual Face-to-Face QN Network Events.

In May and June, the VQA team will be travelling the country to deliver our QN network events in 43 locations. The events are now live on the website to book your place. We recommend booking early as places are limited.

The event gives you the opportunity to network with other Quality Nominees from your region, but more importantly, get all of the latest information on changes to the Quality Assurance Model for September 2019. These events are free to attend.

To book, visit BTEC Training and follow these steps:

  • Select a subject
  • Select Q and then Quality Nominee
  • You can then search for the location

Please note: some events are advertised as Schools or FE, but you are welcome to attend any date you wish. The information is the same regarding the Quality Assurance model, but this structure is a result of requests from QNs in some areas to better facilitate networking.

Quality nominee social media

The role of quality nominee need not be a lonely one - you can talk to each other, keep up to date and ask for support from each other by using our social media.
