How does standardisation and Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) support the assessment process? If you would like to know more about the importance of ensuring quality in relation to delivery and assessment of regulated and non-regulated qualifications then this session is for you.

Standardisation practices will be reviewed and there will be an opportunity for those participating to share thoughts and ideas as to how their own methods and that of their provider could be improved. The role of the IQA will also be examined in relation to how it aims to both support and improve assessment practice, as well as moderate and quality assure achieved learning outcomes. The session will review the importance of ensuring consistency, transparency, validity and reliability and why this is essential to maintain high quality provision for all stakeholders.

The session is aimed at all those who would like to learn more about internal and external quality assurance processes and procedures from initial mapping of intended outcomes, allocation of assessment criterion, verification of practice through to final verification and planning for external quality assurance with the chosen Awarding Organisation.

Delivered by Karen Plowman, Head of Professional Development, this interactive and collaborative session will allow those attending a chance to discuss and understand appropriate and fundamental approaches to quality assuring provision, whilst offering an opportunity to engage with others who are also new to the standardisation and verification process.

On completion of the training activity, all those participating will receive a certificate of attendance.
