Level 4 Certificate In Leading The Internal Quality Assurance Of Assessment Processes And Practice Lead IQA

The Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is the most comprehensive IQA qualification.

This course will qualify members of your team to quality assure qualifications, and lead and manage the whole quality assurance process. Upon completion of the Lead IQA qualification, the candidates will understand the principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment, be able to internally assure the quality of assessment, and also plan, allocate, and monitor work in their area of responsibility.

If your candidates don’t need to lead and manage the quality assurance process, they will just need the Level 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice >>
