Achieving this award
The NCFE Level 4 Award in Conducting Internal Quality Assurance of the Assessment Process is made up of one mandatory unit:
Unit 01 Conduct internal quality assurance of the assessment process
To achieve the Award, candidates must successfully complete the mandatory unit.
To successfully complete the unit, each candidate has to provide evidence satisfying all the ‘statements of competence' or performance and knowledge requirements in the unit.
The unit has 4 elements:
- Element 1.1 Carrying out and evaluating internal assessment and quality assurance systems
- Element 1.2 Supporting Assessors
- Element 1.3 Monitoring the quality of Assessors' performance
- Element 1.4 Meeting external quality assurance requirements
This unit covers the internal quality assurance system for assessment decisions. This system will meet the external requirements of the relevant awarding body, the accrediting bodies and internal procedures. These procedures may be ones that are already in place or ones that have been developed specifically to meet assessment requirements. This unit also involves monitoring Assessors' decisions and the support they need, including sampling and standardisation arrangements. You will have to watch Assessors at certain periods of the assessment process. You may not have to choose Assessors as this may be the decision of others.
You will have to provide assessment information on particular sets of standards and give clear feedback on performance by using internal and external quality assurance processes. There must be evidence of having procedures in place for appeals and complaints within the local assessment centre, which meet external requirements.
