Triangulation and gap analysis

Once we have received a completed SAQ we will review it to check that the organisation has fully addressed the question areas, and then check their responses using any available data and previous SAQs to help identify potential areas of risk or excellence, innovation and notable practice. We will arrange to meet with them to discuss their submitted SAQ and any appropriate and proportionate follow up activity.

We recognise that all organisations have challenges delivering education and training. We wish to understand these and do what we can to help resolve them. To help our assurance process, we expect to undertake targeted quality activity. Similarly, if there is evidence of excellence, innovation or notable practice, we may ask for further information about this to enable us to promote it.
