Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance

Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) have launched a new suite of qualifications for Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance to replace the A and V Qualifications.  These awards are now available and are known by the term “TAQA” qualifications. 'TAQA' stands for: Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance.

If your organisation has staff involved in internal training, assessment or quality assurance of training/assessment, then these awards may be for you.  Target deliver these awards throughout the UK.

We offer the full suite of certificates and awards in this suite of qualifications as well as a series of training workshops to complement the qualifications.  Additionally, we offer a complimentary introductory workshop (TAQA Uncovered) which explains the awards in greater detail.  The aim of this workshop is to provide you with a greater understanding of the awards, so if you decide to undertake, you make the correct choice.

The qualifications are for staff that are working in, or looking to gain entry to, roles in Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance.

The new units and qualifications will provide people who carry out assessment and internal quality assurance roles in their organisation with the opportunity to develop and improve their practice as well as achieving a professional qualification for the role. They have been developed for those working in accredited learning (NVQ’s), non accredited learning (i.e in-house training), the National Qualification Framework (NQF) and the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).  Click on the title to see when we are offering public and open inductions for the relevant qualifications.

The qualifications offer flexibilty, using a mix of the units available - some competence-based and some knowledge based (see TAQA quals structure). The knowledge only units (whose titles begin with 'Understanding'...) allow anyone who is interested in or needs to know about assessment and/or quality assurance, but is not a practitioner, to acquire knowledge and information about the roles.

If you are unsure if these awards are for you or your organisation, contact us to discuss. We can also offer 'in-house' workshops ranging from a 1/2 day introduction workshop, to full workshop packages covering any of the relevant qualifications.
