Our Courses There are 3 courses in the Internal Quality Assurance suite of qualifications.

Level 4 Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice

This is the most highly regarded of all the IQA qualifications. It equips you with all the skills necessary to not only quality assure qualifications but also lead and manage the whole quality assurance process.

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

This qualification is the closest to the old Internal Verifier qualification. It equips you with all the skills necessary to quality assure assessments.

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

This is the most basic IQA course. This course does not qualify you to internally quality assure assessment. However, it does provide you with the theory behind internally quality assurance making it an ideal CPD course for managers.


  • One of the IQA’s main responsibilities is to monitor and improve the quality of assessment. The Internal Quality Assurer is effectively responsible for ensuring that the assessor is doing their job correctly. Here are a few other roles that you can expect to take on as an IQA/IV:

    • Provide support to both newly qualified and experienced Assessors/Tutors.
    • Develop and implement policies and procedures for the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment.
    • Plan and manage External Quality Assurer/External Verifier visits.
  • The Internal Quality Assurance qualifications used to be called the Internal Verifier courses. So, although they are still commonly referred to as the Internal Verifier (IV) courses, if you are looking at becoming an ‘Internal Verifier’ then it is, in fact, an Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) qualification that you need.

  • In short, not necessarily. Nowhere in the IQA specification does it state that learners must hold an assessing qualification.

    That being said, it is fairly unlikely you will be eligible if you don’t hold an assessor qualification. Because to be eligible for the IQA course, your CV needs to demonstrate that you have sufficient knowledge and skills to meet the criteria within the IQA qualification.

    If you would like to find out if you are eligible for an IQA course, then please fill in the form on our ‘Am I Eligible?‘ page.

  • Salaries for Internal Quality Assurers vary dramatically based on the size of the organisation and the specific job role being undertaken. They tend to be in the range of £23,000 – £35,000.
