Learn to become an IQA with us

Updated: Nov 11, 2022

If you are looking to become an IQA within apprenticeships, NVQ, Btec or End Point Assessment, you will need to gain a nationally accredited internal quality assurance qualification. Many apprenticeship standards require end point assessors to hold this qualification too.

We are offering 50% off EPA courses when enrolled at the same time as an IQA (or assessor) course (EPA course normally £299 would be £149) with the IQA course at £595*. We are not the cheapest IQA course (and no-where near the most expensive) on the market, but we are very flexible in our working methods, great to work with, offer exceptional support, and aim to save you time by collecting evidence in ways that are time efficient to you, as we know you have a busy schedule, whilst ensuring you still produce quality work and enhance your knowledge and understanding.

£595 cost based on Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice which is the essential qualification you need to become an IQA.

All those enrolled on our professional courses can now apply for a TOTUM PRO (NUS) student discount card, who claim that, on average, people save around £500 a year by having one.

IQA qualifications are suitable for those working in colleges, training providers and schools
