The next step for NVQ Assessors

If you have trained to become an NVQ Assessor and feel like you want to take another step up, then there is an option available to you – The Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice (IQA).


Next step IQA NVQ Assessor


What is it?

The Level 4 IQA is ideal not only for those who are part of internal Quality Assurance processes but also those who have wider quality assurance responsibilities, manage others, develop policies or manage External Quality Assurance (EQA) visits. 

Brooks and Kirk recommend if you have recently trained as an NVQ Assessor, then you should gain experience in Assessing. This is before progressing straight on to the IQA qualification. However, there can be exceptions. If, for example, you had a background in auditing/management, it may be possible to progress straight onto the course. 

Here’s a few reasons why you may wish to consider progressing onto an IQA course with Brooks and Kirk:

  • You can cover the cost of this course with a 24+ Loan. Even if you have already taken one out to fund your assessor course.
  • If you are a returning customer then you would also get £50 off the cost of your course.
  • We can provide you with access to the trainee assessors to support
