How is it taught

Sessions are delivered to develop knowledge and understanding and candidates are then required to complete activities and support learners/assessors to compile a portfolio of evidence.
Assessor and IQA qualifications are delivered on a flexible basis, meaning that you will have an individual programme of study. The course fee includes a text book to support your completion of the theory unit.
You will initially meet with the TAQA tutor, who will discuss the units with you and decide which qualification you should undertake. You will enrol for one unit at a time (starting with 301 or 401).
You will be issued with the unit work when you enrol and the TAQA tutor will monitor your progress. You will be able to attend workshops if required and have regular tutorial meetings to discuss your work. Your TAQA tutor will be available via email / telephone for help and advice as required.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is via a porfolio of evidence and observation.
Depending on the combination of units undertaken, the following qualifications are available:-
301 = Award in understanding the principles and practices of assessment
301+302 = Award in assessing competence in the work environment
301+303 = Award in assessing vocationally related achievement
301+302+303 = Certificate in assessing vocational achievement

401 = Award in Understanding the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice
401+402 = Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice
401+402+403 = Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice

What else do I need to know?


The knowledge and understanding component of the CAVA and IQA qualifications are completed first. Candidates may then progress to the practical assessment and quality assurance modules. To undertake the IQA qualification, you must… a) Have access to a minimum of two assessors and conduct monitoring activities with them, to gather the evidence required for 402. The college cannot provide assessors for this purpose, you must make your own arrangements to undertake IQA if you are not currently doing so. b) Have a team of IQAs, whose work you plan and monitor, to gather evidence for 403. c) Be occupationally competent, according to the Awarding Body guidelines, for the qualifications you are monitoring.
