Requirements for centre staff including tutors, assessors and IQAs.
Becoming a YMCA Awards Centre
To become a YMCA Awards centre, you will need to demonstrate that you have the right systems, staff and resources in place to support learners to achieve a YMCA Awards qualification. This starts with a conversation with the team who will explain our processes and requirements in more detail before providing access to our organisation approval request form.
Our staff approval process allows us to confirm that tutors, assessors and internal quality assurers (IQAs) are suitably qualified to support learners to achieve a YMCA Awards qualification. This usually means ensuring that staff have both subject matter and role specific qualifications.
Our product approval process allows existing centres to add new or additional qualifications to their centre's approval.
Our site approval process allows you to notify us of changes to your delivery locations and for us to check premises are appropriate.
Access arrangements, reasonable adjustment and special consideration
Submit requests to support learners to complete their assessments — including the use of video evidence and invigilation away from your approved sites — by completing the Access arragement, reasonable adjustment and special considerations request form in Y-Connect.
