Teaching, Learning and Assessment
A holistic approach to learning and assessment is used, showing learners how to relate their own achievements to the underpinning theory, Professional Standards (PS) and National Occupational Standards (NOS). Learners are made aware of the importance of their own professional practice and the opportunities for using naturally occurring evidence whenever available. Learners are encouraged to evaluate their own experiences and assess relevant past and present practice. The overall grade for each qualification is a ‘pass’. The learner must achieve all the required units within the specified qualification structure.
Mode of Delivery
The IQA programme is delivered through a part time face-to-face training day, one to one tutorial and workplace assessment.
