About this Level 4 Award in External Quality Assurance (EQA)
The qualification is based on a KNOWLEDGE of external quality assurance (UNDERSTANDING UNIT) as well as a practical assessment, which must be carried out gathering the required evidence on TWO external quality assurance visits:
1. Understanding the Principles and Practices of Externally Assuring the Quality of Assessment.
2. Externally Assure the Quality of Assessment.
Completing the knowledge unit online will allow you to plan to complete the practical unit in the future and provide you with the foundation knowledge needed to carry out External Quality Assurance activities.
The arrangement of TWO mentored and observed EQA visits is the responsibility of the learner EQA to arrange. Therefore the learner EQA should be confident to be able to arrange this via their contacts within a relevant Awarding Organisation. Cognitia will assess all evidence gathered from the mentored/observed visits.
