NPQ Quality Assurance Metrics

As part of our NPQ accreditation, we are required to and are committed to quality assure, monitor and improve our programmes continuously to ensure our programmes are written and delivered to the highest standards . 

We have a number of target ‘metrics’ which are monitored, recorded and set to the DfE’s quality assurance agent (QAA), Tribal.

Please see below for our metrics performance: as of May 2019: these are updated every six month in line with our reporting structures to the QAA.
