CENTRES

ETA has considerable experience in working with a diverse centre base to underpin the delivery of qualifications primarily in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector. 

By applying a personal approach to working in partnership and identifying the most effective solutions, centres find they are not subject to unnecessary, over-burdensome practices and procedures. This enables them to focus on developing learners and achieve their desired outcomes.

ETA has considerable experience in working with a diverse centre base to underpin the delivery of qualifications primarily in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector. 

By applying a personal approach to working in partnership and identifying the most effective solutions, centres find they are not subject to unnecessary, over-burdensome practices and procedures and can therefore focus on the desired outcomes.

 

 

Centre Approval

ETA provides a streamlined centre approval process maximising identifiable best practice and working with a potential centre from the outset to ensure they are fully able to meet the ETA approval requirements.

 

Once centre approval has been granted the centre will be subject to a quality system visit within the first 3 months to establish a bespoke bench mark for developing this risk management audit schedule for the future.

There are set criteria required to be met to become an ETA Approved Centre and these are detailed within our centre approval documentation and support the centre approval process which can be accessed through our online customer engagement system, QUARTZ.

Qualification Approval

When a centre first applies for centre approval, they may include the initial qualifications or Business Solutions they wish to offer in the application.

Approval for these qualifications will be granted in accordance with and as part of the Centre Approval, and will be subject to an early monitoring visit once learners have been registered.

"We were pleased with the level of commitment shown by the new team at ETA ... ETA’s strengthened system of controls and capability should enable it to maintain ongoing compliance with its Conditions of Recognition. I appreciate the efforts you and your colleagues have made”

Mr. Phil Beach
Executive Director for Vocational and Technical Qualifications, OFQUAL

Quality of Service

‘’We recently had an issue with a company who required their employees certificate as a matter of urgency. Rather than wait for the planned EQA Visit I was able to contact ETA who responded immediately and sanctioned an interim visit. The EQA called in to the college the following day and reviewed the candidates evidence. The EQA sent through his report and the candidate was in receipt of his certificate on the third day. This issue was dealt with professionally, decisively and with the minimum of fuss while maintaining the integrity of the EQA process. This is the kind of personal service that places ETA ahead of the competition.’’

Working with Industry

‘’We have worked on a number of industrial projects in partnership with ETA. Through their supportive and innovative approaches, we were able to design and deliver a range of on site assessment programmes that made collection of evidence easier that it would normally would have been. This involved the use of work based recorders and using an integral approach with the production systems that are in place in the organisations. ETA really understand the industry and their needs!’’

Customer Service

‘’From the first moment you speak to the office you just know you will get the assistance you require. All requests and communications are dealt with in a professional and courteous manner.’’
