Frequently Asked Questions:

Why do I need to update?


Is my old Assessor Qualification still valid?

Yes; Ofqual have confirmed that there is no mandatory requirement to requalify to the new TAQA units, however, If you achieved your assessor qualifications as either the D32 or A1 units prior to 2010, and have not been regularly assessing since then, you may find that prospective employers will require you to have evidenced CPD (kept a file or record of how you have kept up to date) or undertaken an ‘update’ course to refresh and maintain your knowledge in the field of Assessment and the new frameworks.

How do I update myself on all of the new changes to the TAQA suite of qualifications?

There are no formally accredited courses for this subject area, however organisations that deliver the TAQA Qualifications may develop update courses to fulfil the requirement of ensuring that all assessors and verifiers are working in line with the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for ‘Learning and Development’ and practicing in line with current assessment and verification standards.
