This textiles manufacturer are a SQA Satellite Centre of Polaris Learning for SQA Level 2 qualifications in Manufacturing Textile Products as well as some technical units at a SQA Level 3. We have been working together since 2005.
When we first started working together, the client had a very clear picture of what training and qualifications they would like in place for their Overlookers (the engineers who look after the equipment and keep the looms running), having identified the required technical units.
We manage the VQ aspects for the client with the Scottish Qualifications Authority. This includes ensuring that the client are meeting the requirements and expectations of SQA as well as providing assessor and verifier training and qualifications as required. The assessors and verifiers hold the SQA L&D9DI Assessor Award and the SQA L&D11 Internally Monitor and Maintain the Quality of Workplace Assessment.
