External Verification

External verification is an integral part of our quality assurance arrangements. Our external verifiers (EVs) are the key mechanism in the establishment and monitoring of recognised centre status facilitating compliance with statutory regulation, our quality standards and the expectations of our qualification partners.

EVs are required to visit centres and/or conduct desk-based reviews to monitor and report recognised centre compliance with our requirements and qualification specification criteria (developed in accordance with our quality standards and appropriate legislation). As external verification is the key mechanism in the monitoring of recognised centre activity; we have a number of verification roles and responsibilities in place to ensure compliance is effectively maintained and risk is managed.

To find out more about our verification roles and responsibilities and to review the strategic objectives we have in place related to verification please read the 1st4sport External Verification Arrangements.
