The participants of the recent Quality Assurance Standardisation Events provided the Qualifications and Product Development team with some valuable feedback.
In February and March we ran two events to consider how to re-structure our fire service suite of qualifications to suit the changing landscape of fire education and apprenticeships.
We’re pleased to announce that Sancus Solutions, have become the first organisation in the U.K. to achieve SFJ Awards approval to deliver the Level 5 Award in Investigating Serious Incidents In Healthcare qualification.

SFJ Awards recently held 4 Standardisation events in London, jointly facilitated by SFJ Awards Quality and Assessment Manager, Pam Hunt, and a relevant subject specialist External Quality Assurer. The 4 events focussed on Community & Social Justice, Fire & Rescue, Learning & Development and Law Enforcement & Policing sectors.
