What is our role and responsibilities in quality assurance?  How does this role form part of wider service development and how are we effective in this role. This Workshop aims to address these areas further.


By the end of the day participants will have:

  • Fully considered what quality assurance means and their role and responsibilities in this
  • Explored how the role links to wider service development, identifying strengths and issues along with implications for policies and procedures
  • Discussed key principles in maintaining a child focussed approach
  • Considered further how feedback is delivered to the service or individuals ensuring this is clear and effective when addressing any practice issues
  • Had the opportunity to share and discuss practice examples, dilemmas and ideas with other participants.
