The aim of this unit is to assess the knowledge and understanding a learning and development practitioner requires for the internal quality assurance of assessment. This unit is suitable for anyone wishing to gain knowledge about internal quality assurance. For example, teachers, tutors, trainers, programme managers, course leaders or staff working in quality departments both in private training organisations and colleges of further education.
These qualifications will be required for:
- Assessors and verifiers involved in National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) for the next three years. Those who deliver these qualifications will need to be qualified to meet the requirements of the NVQ Code of Practice and Sector Skills Councils assessment strategies.
- Assessors and quality assurance staff who deliver QCF qualifications that use the term ‘NVQ’ in their title will also need these qualifications.
Depending on the assessment strategies set by individual Sector Skills Councils, some staff, who are assessing and quality assuring qualifications within the QCF that do not use the term ‘NVQ’ in their titles, but whose purpose is to confirm occupational competence, will need to hold IQA or EQA qualifications.
These qualifications would be helpful for teachers in schools who deliver vocational qualifications with applied learning, such as BTEC Firsts and Nationals.
You will develop the knowledge and understanding behind the principles and practices of Internal Quality Assurance. Once you have completed this unit you can then progress onto unit 2 which is the practical unit for actually quality assuring.
Two training workshops held at the Printworks Campus. The rest is delivered on a one to one basis at a time and place to suit you.
Candidates must be over 19 years old to undertake the course. Ideally be making the progression from the TAQA to the IQA qualification as an academic route as part of your CPD.
You must have good literacy and numeracy skills. We strongly recommend you have completed the Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement (Assessors Award).
You must be able to demonstrate competency through work place assessment. You must have at least 2 candidates to assess as part of the training.
