This qualification is aimed at those candidates wanting to train as assessors and those carrying out quality assurance to attain current assessment and quality assurance standards together with the competence as necessary to deliver these functions. This qualification will equip a wide range of assessors, trainers, facilitators and teachers to support learners.
City and Guilds TAQA is a modular award (Levels 3 and 4). C&G TAQA inducts candidates into the TAQA Qualification scheme. The Modules and Awards 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.
The TAQA qualifications consist of a mix of modules – some are competence-based and some knowledge based. The knowledge only module (Unit 301 ‘Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment’) allows anyone who is interested in or needs to know about assessment and quality assurance, but is not a practitioner, to acquire knowledge and information about the roles. The modules which are practice based require the candidate to complete the learning outcomes as listed in the documentation for individual modules.
A City and Guilds TAQA Award is suitable for those who work, or want to work, as Assessors/Trainers of personnel in commerce, industry, public and voluntary sectors, provided they are qualified in the subject they intend to assess by virtue of holding an appropriate professional qualification or employed in a training/teaching role.
