You might know the Level 3 TAQA QCF NVQ Assessor Training Course as the A1. The new TAQA QCF NVQ Assessor Training Course replaces the A1, which has been phased out.
The level 3 certificate is a full assessor qualification which enables you to assess in both workplace and vocational environments.
The Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Workplace is for practitioners who will be required to assess competence in the workplace only.
The Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement is for practitioners who will be required to assess competence of students outside of the work environment in a training room or classroom, a workshop or any other training environment only. (This will be demonstrated and evidenced by skills tests, oral and written questions, assignments, projects, case studies or simulations)
The Level 4 Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Process and Practice is a knowledge based unit / award. This award forms part of the requirement for the IQA Award, however it can be taken in isolation and is ideally suited to new IQA’s or somebody who wants to know what it is like to be an IQA without carrying out any quality assurance activities.
Please note that this unit can be achieved without having to having to carry out IQA activities with assessors, however achievement of the unit/award will not qualify you to carry out IQA activities without undertaking the performance unit.
This qualification is for practitioners who conduct internal quality assurance of the assessment process from within a centre or organisation. This will include sample planning, monitoring assessors, advising and supporting assessors, talking to learners and witnesses, and maintaining records.
The full Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is for anybody who Leads the internal quality assurance process within an organisation, for example co-ordinating the work of other IQA’s, developing systems, and liaising with EQA’s or preparing for EQA visits and managing a team of assessors.
