At the start of each Quality Statement, an introductory page sets out the subject through a statement that will give an overview of the type of evidence that will be required.  This statement is then further expanded by setting out the terms and language used in order to give further meaning and clarity to that subject.  Some quality areas are only included in particular sections of the award.  So for example, Safeguarding is only featured in the Bronze conditions – this is because we believe each indicator must be evidenced by even the smallest organisation.
