Course Overview

The units and qualifications will provide people who carry out assessment and internal quality assurance roles in their organisation with the opportunity to develop and improve their practice as well as achieving a professional qualification for the role.

They are available to anyone working in: accredited learning; non accredited learning (where people may assess performance but do not assess for a qualification); the NQF and the QCF.

You will be provided with support in order to develop a portfolio of evidence, these will be made up of regular guidance sessions with your assessor.

What You Will Study

Depending on the pathway required, the Level 4 qualifications for Quality Assurance consist of three separate qualifications:

Level 4 Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice - a knowledge-only award for those who need to know about internal quality assurance (IQA) but who are not currently carrying out quality assurance themselves. These may be experienced assessors or centre managers, for example.

Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice – for practitioners who conduct internal quality assurance of the assessment process from within a centre or organisation, by sample planning, monitoring and advising on the practice of assessors.

Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice - for practitioners who lead the internal quality assurance process and have a responsibility for managing the quality of the assessment process and practices, and the performance of assessors. They may also develop systems and lead on visits from outside agencies such as awarding organisations.

How You Will Be Assessed

You will be assessed by a variety of methods, including professional discussion, verbal questions and answers, observation of you completing IQA responsibilities, etc.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for those wishing to undertake these qualifications. However, practitioners will need to be working with assessors in a centre, or organisation, to enable them to demonstrate competence for all the awards except the Level 4 Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice.

Attendance Expectations

You will attend meetings with your assessor and be observed in your workplace.
