Awarding Body

tquk training qualifications uk logo

TQUK is the fastest growing Ofqual regulated awarding organisation in the UK. Operating in over 400 centres worldwide, they provide a wide range of vocational qualifications that conform to a high standard, specialising in the areas of first aid, education and training, health and safety, and health and social care.

Course Outcome

The purpose of this qualification is to confirm competence in an occupational role to the standards required. It is intended for those who maintain and improve the quality of assessment from within an organisation or assessment centre.

At the end of this IQA course, successful learners will be awarded a formal certificate of achievement by NCFE. Our internal verifier qualification has been designed specifically to meet the needs of learners who prefer to study from home.

How is this course assessed or examined?

This course is assessed in two ways:

Tutor-marked assignments (TMAs)

Each unit is followed by a tutor-marked assignment (TMA) which will be completed at the end of each module and marked by your personal tutor.

You will not be required to take an external exam with this course as your portfolio of evidence is internally assessed by us and externally quality assured by the awarding body. Your personal tutor will provide feedback on your work, and should there be any amendments required, they will outline what is needed for you to complete that assignment.

Entry requirements

As this is a more advanced level course, you need to have been assessing for at least six months, and you need to hold either a CAVA or an A1 qualification to enrol on this course.

How do I become a teacher without a degree?

While this is an unusual route to becoming a teacher, it’s certainly possible. First, you have to work towards getting a Diploma in Education and Training (DET). In order to qualify for this, you’ll need to have at least Level 2 skills in Maths and English, but if you’re thinking of teaching these subjects, you’ll need a Level 3. Additionally, you’ll have to be able to evidence at least 100 hours of teaching experience.  

After obtaining your DET, you can apply for QTLS and obtain an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) certificate. After this, you’ll need to register for the Professional Formation, leading to the QTLS.

What qualifications do you need to be a teacher?

In the UK, you are required to have a degree and gain a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in order to teach in state schools. If you wish to teach at the primary level, you will also need to have achieved the minimum pass grade in GCSE English, maths, and science.

How long is a teacher training course in the UK?

Generally, you will complete a teacher training course within one year, should you do a post-graduate PGCE program. During this time, you’ll spend both academic time on campus and several weeks in school placements, getting hands-on experience. This is also when you will train towards your Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) recommendation.

What qualifications do you need to become an assessor?

Before becoming a qualified assessor, you’ll have to obtain an assessing qualification at an accredited institution, such as Oxbridge. Once you’ve completed this, you’ll receive a Certificate of Competence and Statement Of Results (SOR). Now you can register with an Education and Training Quality Assurance Body (ETQA), and that’s that; you’re now a qualified assessor.

How do I become an assessor?

In order to become a qualified assessor, you’ll need to hold a minimum of a level 3 qualification in the area you’re hoping to assess as well as industry experience. Additionally, you’ll have to obtain an assessing qualification like the Oxbridge NCFE Level 3 Certificate.

Why take a teaching assessing course online?

Assessing is another major part of post-16 vocational qualifications. You can become a qualified assessor or IQA with Oxbridge assessing courses. No matter what your occupation is, our flexible course will help you obtain the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA).

With our courses being online, you can complete the course in your own time, at your own pace, so it fits perfectly around work and other commitments.

Why take a teaching course online?

There is a constant need to qualify more and more great teachers, and it’s unlikely this need will go away any time soon. If you’re considering pursuing a career in teaching, our Oxbridge courses are the ideal tool to help you prepare for the art of teaching. With our online courses, you can choose to set a schedule that fits your agenda.

Oxbridge courses will qualify you to teach post-16 and are also used as access courses for primary and secondary education qualifications. However, if you’re looking to teach Early Years (ages 0-5), then our Early Years courses will be more suitable.
