Bond University successfully completes IDEE

Bond University High Performance Training Centre (HPTC), Gold Coast, Australia, has successfully undertaken IUSCA Independent Department External Evaluation (IDEE). This accolade presents Bond University with IUSCA Endorsed status, certifying it's quality and adherence to best practice protocols.

The IDEE program has been developed by the IUSCA in response to demand from the university sector for a formal and robust assessment procedure, where best practice can be benchmarked and developed.

During the IDEE process, the Bond University HPTC was subject to a robust and detailed audit of its guiding principles, procedures, and outcomes.

Glenn Corcoran, Manager of the HPTC said "to receive Endorsed status through the IUSCA we presented a comprehensive submission on ten areas to be evaluated by an External Evaluation Panel that assesses the business from a different and fresh professional perspective.

The end result was a face to face discussion with the IUSCA panel around our assessment prior to being formally endorsed, and then received a comprehensive report on all areas; what we do well, where we could improve, different initiatives and future recommendations. The report consolidated areas we thought we did well, highlighted ideas from an external perspective that we had not identified and overall we agreed with the report and will look to initiate recommendations."

Overall Benefits of IDEE include:

  • Strategic Management and KPI Development

  • Inter-department Collaboration and Structure

  • Facilities and Equipment Audit and Review

  • Quality Assurance of Policies, Processes, and Procedures

  • Staffing - Recruitment, Retention, and Separation

  • Evaluations, Appraisals and CPD

  • Student-Athlete Health, Performance, and Wellbeing

Once universities are able to demonstrate the quality of their departments they will gain IUSCA Endorsed status. This award gives recognition to the fact that the university takes seriously student-athlete health and well-being, as well as the development and management of it's staff and resources.

Glenn continued, "the Bond University High Performance Training Centre is proud to have been awarded IUSCA Endorsed Status and it assists with our positioning as a World Class High Performance Training Centre."

Andrew Langford, Director of the IUSCA commented, “Bond University HPTC is a world-class facility and performance programme. Our evaluation highlighted the great work the coaches do in developing elite level teams and athletes. We are proud to award Bond University HPTC IUSCA Endorsed status
