Course overview

This level 4 Award has been designed for those individuals who internally quality assure assessors and the assessment of practice but do not have the responsibility for managing the centre or other internal quality assurers.

The qualification covers the topics of principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment and how to internally assure the quality of assessment.

Entry requirements

You must be able to demonstrate vocational competence within the area you propose to verify  and assure quality of assessment. You will need access to a qualified Verifier, with appropriate vocational competence, who is willing to counter-sign your assessments and two candidates whose work you will be assessing and assuring.

How will I be assessed?

This is a competence based qualification therefore there is the expectation that you will be working/volunteering a minimum of 10 hours per week within an assessment role. If you are not currently working within this area it would be worthwhile considering a knowledge based qualification instead. To discuss your eligibility for the programme please telephone
