New programmes should be registered at least two weeks before the programme start date.
> Some local authorities or delivery agencies have prepaid QA and support arrangements in place with the Foundation which mean that you are entitled to a programme observation, feedback and a report as well as a (dependent on package) bespoke local peer support and advanced training, evaluation report, dedicated programme officer, and annual management reports.
> Individual programmes can purchase a support package. The basic package is £500 and provides a named programme officer who will observe the full session of your programme and meet with your afterwards to report back and identify actions. You will also get a written summary report.
> For accredited facilitators, you can complete the QA tool which is located on the strengthening practice site and is available through Programme Officers. This requires you to document your delivery and develop a portfolio of evidence which you will need to submit to the Foundation and then attend a review meeting to identify that standards have been met.
If you have any queries about this, please contact one of the SFSC programme officers or Leandra, the Programme Manager.
