VTCT Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice

About This Qualification

The VTCT Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice is a practical-based qualification intended for those who maintain the quality of assessment from within an organisation or assessment centre.

This qualification is intended for those who maintain the quality of assessment from within an organisation or assessment centre.

The course will be assessed through a combination of written assignments, one practical observation and the submission of a portfolio of evidence. You must undertake the sampling of four learners, across two different assessors, complete an IQA sampling plan and four IQA reports, take part in a standardisation meeting, be observed by your expert witness and complete a Personal Statement. Assessment should focus on real work activities so that naturally occurring evidence can be assessed.
The range of direct evidence MUST include:

  • Monitoring of a minimum of TWO assessors
  • Assessment of a minimum of TWO candidates per assessor
  • Observation of practice
  • Examination of products of work
  • Questioning

These can be supplemented, where necessary, with professional discussion, reflective accounts or witness statements.

As some of the evidence for your IQA internal quality assurer qualification will be gathered remotely, you will ideally have the following technology available to you:

  • A computer 
  • Access to the internet, Zoom/Microsoft Teams/Skype and a webcam
  • Access to a flip cam/video/smartphone or camera for evidence gathering

This qualification provides the knowledge and skills required to progress to employment as an internal verifier.

Theory elements are covered online in your own home, in your own time and at your own pace via self-study using our Virtual Learning Environment. These theory elements are perfectly suited to online delivery therefore they can be delivered and learning assessed online. You will be fully supported by your course tutor whose role it is to help and guide you through the process from beginning to end. Both your tutor and assessor will ensure that you not only reach your goals but also maintain industry and awarding body standards.


It is recommended that you have a level of general education comparable to GCSEs, a caring disposition and be committed to fulfilling all learning outcomes and meet the standards specified by all assessment criteria. To begin working towards becoming an internal quality assurer you should be an experienced and qualified assessor for your relevant vocational area and ideally hold D32/33, A1 or the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement. You should also hold Vocational qualifications in the area of quality assurance.
