“The External Quality Audits are designed to ensure that we are complying with all awarding body policies and regulations and delivering qualifications in an effective and compliant manner.

We are committed to organising and delivering all of our learning to the highest possible standards, wherever possible going above and beyond what is required to ensure that staff and external customers have the best possible learning experience.”

“Everybody Sport and Recreation are an Approved Training Centre (ATC) of IQL UK. In being an ATC, this gives them the ability to deliver and assess IQL UK regulated qualifications. As part of the ATC scheme, each year review known as an External Quality Assurance (EQA) audit takes place on the ATC. This to ensure they are adhering to the conditions set out within the ATC scheme.

During their recent audit, Everybody Sport and Recreation were found to be “Fully Compliant” within the conditions set out and therefore gained an “Excellent” compliance status.”

Everybody also delivers Swimming Teacher Qualifications, Jan Douglas, Consultant Centre Reviewer at Tides Quality Management Solutions on behalf of Swim England Qualifications shares:

“Everybody Sport puts their learners first, and this is evident from the way in which the centre delivers the courses and their commitment to maintaining the quality and integrity of the qualifications with face-to-face delivery and support throughout. Their courses are well backed by policies and procedures to ensure consistency and safety for all.”
