Quality Audits

Quality Audits

We can give you an honest and objective assessment of your organisation’s strengths and highlight areas for development.

Pre-Inspections and Re-Inspections

SBA has experienced inspectors that are able to audit your organisation and give you invaluable feedback to help you prepare for either a first inspection or a re-inspection. If required, we can also provide support developing policies and completing documentation.

Teaching Audits

These are extremely useful – particularly for very large organisations – to facilitate the planning of appropriate programmes for teachers with similar professional profiles. By taking a snapshot of the teaching, we can identify the high performers who could be developed as in-house trainers as well as those that would benefit from a “refresher” to make them more effective classroom practitioners.

CASE STUDY: Nauss University Project extended for a second year

Steve Brent, CEO of SBAssociates, is delighted to announce that the project with the Language Centre at the Naif Arab University for Security Sciences (NAUSS) in Riyadh has been extended for a second year. Following on from the extensive Quality Review and Recommendations undertaken in the first year, the focus in the second year is to continue to develop the curricula, complete the teacher recruitment process, implement the new processes and systems covering the whole student journey and gain accreditation from a globally recognised accreditation body.
