We have been busy adding new features to Stedfast. The key task has been to improve the outcomes based assessment features which are a key driver in the developing quality assurance practices.

The outcomes based quality assurance features on Stedfast now make it easier for providers to set their outcomes sets, allocate staff to each area and to add mapping and targets. This version of the outcomes based assessment is planned to be released on 29th July 2016 and will be in place for providers to develop their self assessment reports and quality improvement plans for 2015/16.

We have found that the ability to map outcomes has helped demonstrate that all frameworks and outcome sets are being fully covered in reviews. This is particularly useful to show how all facets of delivery are being reviewed and developed.

We will post an announcement once the outcomes based quality assurance features have gone live.
