New Level 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance

Crossfields Institute Level 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance (Integrative Approach)

This fully-online qualification is aimed at those who have a responsibility for the quality assurance of assessment practice within their organisation. It will help them to understand how to recognise good practice and undertake the role of internal quality assurance to meet the requirements of their own organisation and/or of external organisations such as an awarding organisation. 

There is a knowledge component within this programme that focuses on the principles and practices of internal quality assurance and a skills component where the learner is required to demonstrate their skills through naturally occurring evidence.

The knowledge component of this programme will help the learner to understand the need to identify good practice before being able to put the different techniques of planning and undertaking the role (that will be explored through taught session and discussion) into practice. The learner will have the opportunity to create their own internal quality assurance process or critically reflect on their organisation’s existing process.
