Quality Champions Training
The overall aim of the Quality Champions Training is to provide key persons in organisations with the skills to become a quality champion in their service.
Training is delivered through an interactive eLearning platform. After completing the training, participants should be able to:
- Champion and lead a drive to improve quality in their organisation
- Objectively and accurately assess the sources of policy and practice in their organisation, and what these policies are
- Identify gaps between what their assessment reveals, and what is required of the organisation with reference to agreed quality standards
- Put in place a plan to ensure those gaps are filled, including the provision of a robust review mechanism

"I enjoyed the training. I learned a lot about quality standards in my organisation and how policies are an integral part of providing good quality services to our clients"
"Overall I thought the training was excellent. It was very professional, informative and well thought out. Going into it the training quite blind around policy, I found the sequence of modules and pace of the training matched my level of understanding quite well "
"The resource materials printed at the start of the training and referred to, during it, were very helpful and I have used the templates already in another area of work, which is a bonus! The training itself was very logical in its layout and approach and easy to follow"
