Overview of course
There are various start dates during the academic year. Attendance is required at a training day / induction, after which all other learning and assessment is arranged on an individual basis.
The start dates for the 2019/20 academic year are Wednesday 30 October 2019 and Tuesday 24 March 2020 at West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds.
This is a 6 credit Award intended for those who wish to gain an understanding of the principles and practices of internally and externally assuring the quality of assessment, without any requirement to practice. It is suitable for you if you are wanting to move into a quality assurance role but do not yet have an opportunity to practice in this area, or if you simply want a better understanding of the processes and practices for quality assuring assessment. Those who need to know about quality assurance, but never intend to practice, for example managers, are able to learn about essential principles and practices by achieving the knowledge unit only.
There are no formal academic entry requirements.
Further course detail
Course commences with a full day in College to start to find out about the principles and practices of quality assurance. After that learners study on a one to one basis with their allocated assessor who will support any learning or development required.
