A training quality management system (QMS) is a set of company policies and procedures that encapsulates the intention and practical way in which the organisation ensures the quality of the training provided – it is required for companies applying for Seta/ETQA accreditation.

Developing a QMS is often a tedious process as training providers tend to have tacit or “unspoken” quality management built into the way in which they conduct their business – this is rarely explicitly documented. This QMS template will form the basis for you to structure and create the Seta-required policies and procedures – it will help you to capture your internal quality measures by asking all the right questions to assist you in gaining maximum value from this process, whilst also catering for Seta compliance.
