The assessment and quality assurance qualifications will be part of an integrated suite of TAQA qualifications for training, assessment and quality assurance practitioners.
These qualifications are for people working in, or looking to enter roles in assessment and internal quality assurance. They have been developed by LLUK to replace the Assessor and Verifier (A&V) Units. They are designed for use in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – alternative arrangements exist in Scotland.
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.
The Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is for practitioners who conduct internal quality assurance of the assessment process from within a centre/organisation, by sample planning, monitoring and advising on the practice of assessors.
The Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is for practitioners who lead the internal quality assurance process within a centre/organisation and have responsibility for managing the quality of the assessment process, practice and the performance of assessors.
