The Level 4 Award in Understanding the External Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice (RQF) is a theoretical qualification intended for those who wish to gain an understanding of the principles and practices of external quality assurance (external verification), without any requirement to be already in practice. The purpose of this qualification is to confirm competence and expertise of professionals who maintain and improve the quality of assessment from outside an organisation or assessment centre, essentially when working for the awarding organisations. It is equally beneficial for those involved in the internal quality assurance, as they get to understand how the external quality assurers would carry out their role. Completing this course would improve your profile to be able to apply for the role of EQA/EV for any awarding organisation. You are not required to have any prior qualification or experience to start this course, though understanding of assessment and quality assurance processes would be ideal.
