At MKLC we have designed the Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice content to be accessible for all, the course lessons are self paced, so if you feel confident in certain areas you progress quickly through these to the areas you wish to focus more on. You can also complete the assignments in the order you prefer. You will receive feedback from your tutor within 48 hours of submission, but each piece is independent so you can submit pieces whilst waiting on feedback from another.
You have contact with your tutor by e-mail, as well as the main office 9am to 5pm which is staffed only by employees who are qualified teachers and assessors and have experience with the courses, including the Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice course, as well as the other options of the IQA to be able to give you the most effective response to queries.
The Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is a level 4 qualification accredited by Pearson, an Ofqual accredited Awarding Body, ensuring the course meets a standard of quality. The course is one of the options available on the IQA, this combination of units is for those carrying out the IQA role and working as a lead IQA- if not working as a lead IQA you may want to consider the Award in Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and practice.
- Unit 1: Understanding the Principles and Practices of Internally Assuring the Quality of Assessment.
This is comprised of 8 assignments, there is material and resources available on the Moodle and you will also need to use your own practice and some independent research to complete the assignments.. The method of assessment of the unit is through written assignments, there are reasonable adjustments available for those who need them, for example professional discussions. Although it is mandatory, this unit alone does not qualify you to verify. Those who choose to complete only this unit will be those who need to know about verification but who are not going to carry out any verification activity.
- Unit 2: Internally Assure the Quality of Assessment.
The aim of this unit is to assess the IQA trainee’s performance in assuring the quality of assessment from within an organisation or assessment centre.
You will need to have access to at least two assessors, both of which are seeing at least two candidates through assessments and be observed carrying out these assessments. The observation will be a witness statement. You will need to produce a portfolio of evidence providing evidence to cover the different assessment criteria. The portfolio will include evidence such as sampling plans, feedback to assessors, evidence of standardisation meetings and evidence of CPD.
- Unit 3: Plan, Allocate and Monitor Work in Own Area of Responsibility.
This unit is for those overseeing a team of verifiers, this is at least two verifiers in addition to yourself. You will need to show monitoring and evaluating of work plans and targets of the different internal verifiers.
