The Quality and Effectiveness Framework (QEF) for post-16 learning will help us to ensure that the education and training that it funds is of high quality and meets the needs of learners.

Our approach to quality assurance includes the following core strands of work:

Learner outcomes
  • Learner outcomes reports (LORs)
  • Benchmarking
  • Value Added
Responsiveness
  • Learner satisfaction
  • Learner involvement
Leadership and management
  • Self-assessment
  • Peer Review
  • Leading Wales programme
