Advice & Help Centre

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 2020/21 academic year are Wednesday 14 October 2020 and Tuesday 23 March 2021 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 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 do not intend to practice (for example managers of quality assurers) are able to learn about essential principles and practices by achieving the knowledge unit only. It is usually assessed through assignments and professional discussion. This qualification usually takes 3 – 6 months to achieve.

 

 

Entry requirements

There are no formal academic entry requirements.

Further course detail

This programmes starts with a group induction and training day at West Suffolk College or online, then all other learning and assessment is arranged on a one-to-one basis. There are usually two start dates per academic year. We will be delivering each programme through a blended approach with a combination of face to face and virtual delivery: the specific arrangements will be notified to you before you enrol on the programme. However, the nature of the qualifications requires that the quality assurance you carry out includes face to face work with assessors: practitioners whose work is exclusively online will not meet be able to meet the evidence requirements of the Awarding Organisation and sector for these qualifications in their present form. Please note that registration for these qualifications is due to end mid-way through 2021.
