As an Awarding Organisation, SLQ carries out an annual self-assessment review. This review at the end of 2015, identified the average cost for SLQ to maintain a Centre. Therefore, we have decided to implement an annual minimum Centre spend in order to cover the costs of servicing Centres. This will ensure that a high level of service is continued with each of our Centres.
  • minimum spend
The Centre has from 1st August to the 31st July of the following year to ensure the minimum spend clause in the Terms and Conditions is met. If a Centre by the 31st July has not met the required spend they will be invoiced the difference in August.

This may be due to the Centre not having Learners for the next year or a Centre that is delivering the qualifications and awards over a two year period.

If your Centre wishes to withdraw from delivery of SLQ qualifications but are still currently running a qualification:

Once you have informed us of your withdrawal, you will be required to run the course until the end without disadvantaging the Learner(s) in anyway. Once the Learner(s) have been certificated, the Centre will be put on as inactive status, resources evoked and no more courses are allowed to be applied for.

*Please be aware that if the Centre has had a QA visit within the last 2 years, then a final Quality Assurance review is not necessary and the Centre will be placed as inactive straight away.

*If the Centre has not had a QA visit in the last 2 years and have recently certificated a course then the Centre will require a Quality Assurance review from our Quality Assurance Team who will be in contact to arrange.
