How do I study?

The qualification is delivered with a mix of online study and two or three practical training days. The online study part of the course allows you study at a time and pace that is convenient to you and covers all of the theory. The practical training days take place in either our London, Birmingham, Manchester or Boston offices. On these days you will be working alongside an experienced IQA and taking part in a range of real life IQA activities with our assessors and learners.

We have a range of learning resources on the online learning system, including a heap of tutorial videos, a handbook and more. In addition to the online learning resources, you also have unlimited access to our experienced IQA’s either by telephone or email. They are there to help you through the course so please make use of them. 

How long does the course take?

The course duration is completely flexible. In the specification for the Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice, it says that the Guided Learning Hours are 90. This should give you a rough idea as to how long it may take you, dependent on how much time you will be able to commit to the course on a weekly basis.

Remember with Brooks and Kirk you set the pace of your learning so whether it takes 12 weeks or 12 months is entirely up to you.

How much does the course cost?

The cost of the course entirely depends on how you intend on funding the course and which Awarding Body you would like your IQA qualification to be accredited by.
