The QfA process

  1. Purchase the pack. It is designed to be completed electronically. Please email: qfa@earlyyears.wales for more info.
  2. Read the guidance that is included with the pack. There is guidance provided for each section of the evaluation form. Links and references to external documents that provide advice and knowledge as you need it are also included.
  3. Start the evaluation of your provision. There is a 2-year time limit set for completion and submission; you request assessment only when you are ready.
  4. Submit your evaluation by email. As the provider you are in control of managing your service and the plans to improve it. Assessment of your provision starts with your written evaluation and much of the assessment will be based on what you say in the evaluation.
  5. The assessment. You can expect just one assessment visit that is designed to suit your provision. A plan explaining what is expected at the visit is sent in advance.
  6. Accreditation. You will receive a certificate to display at your provision.
  7. Staying accredited. Before the certificate expires send in your updated self-evaluation form, detailing the progress, changes and future plans that have been made. You will then be sent an invoice for your annual re-accreditation, once received an assessor will be in touch.
