Webinar: Retention of Evidence - What, Why and How to Keep it

10th Oct 2019
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM



Evidence backs up claims of appropriate decisions made about a learner’s competency. Without evidence, you have no claim. But what constitutes acceptable evidence? And what about a well-cooked, well-presented meal served in a student restaurant that won’t last half an hour, much less until the auditor arrives.

This webinar regards evidence with the attentive eyes of a regulator and auditor. What passes muster in their view? We round up details about your responsibilities for collecting, keeping and locating evidence. And rather than filing an empty plate, we consider practical alternatives for evidence you can’t retain.

At the end of this session, you’ll understand the Regulator’s view of evidence and our decisions about competence, different retention periods and have clarity around what can and should be kept, how to keep it and how to locate it when required.
