Quality and Compliance

The delivery of high quality, safe programmes with positive outcomes for learners is fundamental in our approach to delivery. Our team regularly receive CPD training to ensure effective learning and support is being delivered consistently across the business.

We have invested in training and quality systems resulting in our organisation being registered with ROTO (Register of Training Organisations) and RoATP (Register of Approved Training Providers).

SportWorks is responsible for the standard and quality of programmes delivered in its name and holds responsibility for developing and delivering programmes. Programmes and delivery undertake regular monitoring, review and constructive dialogue to provide the necessary assurance of standards and quality.

Our Quality Assurance Review Process data is based on learner feedback, internal and external audits and client and staff feedback. Reviews improve and progress the organisation, giving us the opportunity to develop and ensure that educational standards are high and that learners are supported to achieve the aims of their programmes.

Educational standards

SportWorks is committed to providing excellent education and training. We have high expectations, quality teaching, learning and assessments, so that all learners have the best possible opportunities to succeed.

We aim to achieve the highest quality of teaching, learning and assessment by:

  • All learners having the opportunity to succeed and be empowered to fulfil their potential
  • Actively promoting diversity and equality of opportunity
  • Providing excellent progression opportunities
  • Placing the learner at the centre of the learning process
  • The self-esteem and aspirations of all learners being raised through mutual support and commitment
  • Recognising and celebrating success


SportWorks is an approved centre with both NCFE and Sport Leaders UK which enable us to deliver high quality, internationally recognised qualifications.

“This is just a brilliant way for kids to get out and about – and to give mum and dad a break in sometimes challenging circumstances. “It’s always going to be difficult with mixed-ability groups, but the way they’re doing it here shows that there’s a place for everybody. It’s a really good initiative by Sport Works and it’s great to see it being tested so actively in my constituency.”

Richard Holden MP North West Durham


SportWorks aims to create an atmosphere where children, young people and adults at risk of abuse feel valued and safe, and a place where their welfare is promoted.

We will be rigorous and vigilant in protecting the children, young people and adults with whom we work from abuse, bullying and intimidation, including staff, volunteers and stakeholders.  We will do this through a careful recruitment and selection process, a whistle blowing policy, ongoing supervision and monitoring arrangements and guidance on appropriate behaviour.

Everyone involved is obliged to make sure that participants of all ages taking part in activities feel safe. They must report any concerns without delay.

All concerns will be taken seriously and acted upon appropriately, and we will pay attention to what children, young people and adults at risk say and feel.

All those involved in our activities will be made aware of this policy and of what to do if they have any concerns. There is guidance for those responsible for responding to concerns to ensure that all concerns are properly dealt with.
