Verifiers Awards -

UPDATE

The old individual “V” Assessor/Verifier qualifications and their predecessors D34 were replaced at the end of 2010. They have now been succeeded by a new series of Assessment and Quality Assuror Qualifications. To maintain currency of practice, most Verifiers need to update their current qualifications by gaining the new award Unit 1, “Assessing Internal Quality assurance of assessment” or in some cases by attending relevant CPD update training for the same underpinning knowledge and understanding.

The City of Liverpool College offers a 2-route solution that covers and meets both needs:

Route 1- CPD update with College certificate -

A two hour update workshop, covering the content of Unit 1 ‘Understanding the principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment’.

Route 2- Level 4 Award: “Assuring the Quality of Assessment” (QCF) 6 credits.

This requires attendance at the workshop (two half day or one full day) followed by additional one to one support and activities:

Participants are enrolled and registered on the Level 4 Award: “Assuring the Quality of assessment” (QCF) (6 credits); Additional reference, guidance and support materials will be provided as candidates will complete a relevant short assignment. The Assignment is assessed by their assessors. Once the assignment meets the qualification standard it is certificated by a National Awarding Organisation.

For Whom

These workshops are primarily designed for internal verifiers who hold existing V1 units or the older D34 and need to gain and evidence their understanding of the latest requirements on the principles and practices of internal quality assurance, in order to maintain their authority to quality assure.

Pre-attendance Preparation

The new Award requires verifiers to have a good understanding of the quality assurance criteria that apply to the individual sectors and qualifications with which they are involved.

It is important that delegates research these requirements before attending the workshop and bring summary information with them.

This could include for example:

•Examples of Awarding Organisation standards

•Lead body/Sector information relating to professional standards

It is also recommended that participants bring the following with them examples of:

•Individual Learning Plans with induction processes identified; Assessment Plans; Feedback logs; Internal Verification paperwork
