New Qualifications

We have just been approved to deliver a range of Level 4 Internal Quality Assurance qualifications today from AoFA Qualifications.

We can now deliver:

  • Level 4 (QCF) Understanding the IQA of Assessment Processes and Practice
  • Level 4 (QCF) Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice
  • Level 4 (QCF) External Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice

This adds to our ever growing list of qualifications to meet the requirements of individuals and businesses within Northern Ireland working within the vocational arena delivering regulated qualifications.

As an Awarding Organisation many Training Providers cannot get approved because they do not have an Internal Qualified Assurer (IQA), which is a mandatory part of becoming approved to offer Ofqual regulated qualification from an Awarding Body.

These courses are not the CPD days, they are actual QCF Regulated qualifications that do not expire…. have a look at the training section of our website for their details
