Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice (Formerly V1)

[tabby title=”Course Information”]

The old Internal Verifier (IV) qualification has now changed to the Level 4 Internal Quality Assurance qualifications (IQA). 

There are three IQA qualifications available. At Brooks and Kirk we can deliver any of these qualifications, however we predominantly deliver the most highly regarded of the three; The Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice.

The awarding body for your Level 4 IQA course can either be Industry Qualifications or Pearson Edexcel.

The three units learners will need to complete as part of the course are:

  • Unit 1 – Understanding the Principles and Practices of Internally Assuring the Quality of Assessment
  • Unit 2 – Internally Assure the Quality of Assessment
  • Unit 3 – Plan, Allocate and Monitor Work in Own Area of Responsibility

We deliver the majority of the IQA (IV) course on an online learning system. This means that you can complete all of the theory for the course at a pace that suits you best. You would then be required to attend sessions at either our London or Manchester centre to cover the competency based units.

As part of Unit 2, you need to monitor two assessors, each with two candidates of their own. Whilst most colleges and training providers require you to have access to the assessors to monitor, that is something we can help with. We can actually provide you with access to the assessors to work with. This would enable you to complete the course quicker than if you were to go down the conventional route with other colleges and training providers. 

Just to clarify, as part of this course you will achieve the full three unit IQA (IV) qualification. You will find that a lot of other learning providers don’t offer the full three unit qualification and instead just deliver the Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice, which is just units one and two. That qualification wouldn’t qualify you to lead the quality assurance process within an organisation. 


[tabby title=”Entry Requirements”]

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification as such. However, we have to be sure that you will be able to meet the criteria of the IQA (IV) qualification before enrolling you onto the course. 

This course is suited to anyone either currently working in, or looking to work in a quality assurance role. If you have experience in assessing and hold your assessors award then you could be eligible for the IQA (IV) course. You could also be eligible if you have experience working in either a quality control or auditing role. 

The best way to find out if you are eligible to enrol on to our IQA (IV) course will be just to send over your CV to sam@brooksandkirk.co.uk.


[tabby title=”Funding”]

The cost of the course varies dependent on which funding option you choose. There are two funding options available to anyone who is looking to enrol onto this course. These are:

One-off Payment

If you were to pay in full then we would actually knock £100 off the cost of the course. This would bring the overall cost of the course down to as little as £700. 

You can pay the course fee in full and start within one working day here.


There is also the option to pay for the course using our incredibly flexible instalment plans. If you would like to pay in instalments, then we would require a £200 registration fee to get you up and running on the course. 

Again, once you have paid the registration fee, you will be started within one working day. We will then contact you to set up a direct debit with you to pay off the remaining £600. We can arrange to take payments weekly or monthly, whatever is best for you. You can also decide on how much you want to pay off per month/per week. This is on the understanding that, you wouldn’t receive your certificate on completion until your entire course fee had been paid off.

Pay your £200 registration fee to be started within one working day here.
