Internal Quality Assurance

These Internal Quality Assurance qualifications were also developed following the LLUK review in 2010. The two Awards replace the previous V1 and D34 qualifications and focus on the quality of assessment within the Qualifications and Credit Framework (now the Regulated Qualifications Framework - RQF) and how different the process of quality assurance has become. The Certificate has been introduced to allow people who manage teams of quality assurers to obtain an appropriate qualification.
