Internal Quality Assurer
YMCA Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice
The aim of this qualification is to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills of those individuals who are directly involved in internal quality assurance and assessment but are not involved in centre management or liaising with other internal quality assurers.
This qualification is aimed at learners 19+ who are looking to take that first step in quality assuring education - perhaps someone who has never quality assured before, or a tutor or assessor who would like to develop their career.
On successful completion of the qualification assessment you will receive certificates from both YMCA Awards and PD:Education as well as a free one-year membership of PD:Verified, our professional register for qualified tutors, assessors and quality assurers.
This course typically takes 8 weeks to complete however we understand everyone is different so provide the flexibility to complete within 10 months.
This qualification will cover the following units:
- Understanding the principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment (T/601/5320)
- Internally assuring the quality of assessment (A/601/5321)
Theory worksheets, practical observation and recording of your practical application of internal quality assurance. You must have access to a training centre in order to IQA real learners as part of your assessment.
We understand that everyone has different learner needs therefore we have catered the price to you too.
No additional fees required for certification or professional recognition through membership of PD:Verified.
A three month payment plan is available (£45 administration fee applies).
There are no entry requirements but you must be at least 19 years old.
You must have access to a computer and the internet to study this qualification. You will also need access to a training centre so that you can video working with a group of learners, shadowed by a qualified professional who will need to countersign your work.
On gaining the Assessor qualification you may want to progress and complete your Level 3 Award in Education & Training (tutor) or the Level 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance (IQA), both sought after industry recognised qualifications which you would be able to add to your membership category on PD:Verified.
