Fit for Purpose: Self-Assessment for Small Providers.
Ravenhall, Mark; Merrifield, Juliet; Gardener, Sue
This booklet gives smaller adult and community learning (ACL) providers and their partners a practical insight into how to adapt current approaches to quality improvement for their own institutions. The first sections set out how they can do the following: plan the process; collect, collate, and analyze data; make value judgements and act upon them; and organize processes for continual monitoring and review. Each stage is looked at in turn, and the issues facing smaller providers and their partners are considered. The final section, Local Education Authorities Contracting with Smaller Providers, outlines how local education authorities can work with their ACL partners on self-assessment. Appendixes include lists of 11 references and 8 useful Web sites. (YLB)
