Assessment & Quality Assurance Qualifications

Our Assessment & Quality Assurance qualifications are an award in Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance. The award replaced the old A1/A2 Assessor Awards. Anybody who wants to use their knowledge and skills to assess Apprenticeships and NVQs must complete this award. It is ideal for anyone looking to become an assessor, update their CPD record or anyone who wants to share their own skills and knowledge. The award is split into three parts and all three parts must be completed to be fully qualified:

  • Part I – Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment.
  • Part II – Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment.
  • Part III – Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement.
