These are the successor qualifications to the Assessor/Verifier awards (A1 and V1). They provide you with the opportunity to develop and improve your practice in Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance as well as chieving a professional qualification. Some of the units you will complete are also included in the Learning and Development Certificate and Diploma, offering a progression route. Our TAQA Awards are extremely popular and the achievement rates are excellent.
We start with a one-to one planning meeting to discuss your present job role and the opportunities that you have for providing evidence. The programme is built around you including the length of time you want to take to achieve the award. There are usually 5 sessions:
TAQA Assessor Award
Session 1 – Training to cover the principles and practices of assessment
Session 2 – Training to fully prepare you to carry out assessments
Session 3 – Observation 1
Session 4 – Observation 2
Session 5 – Portfolio building and professional discussion
Candidates are fully supported throughout the programme and often comment that they find the process far less stressful that they imagined! Many of our trainee assessors progress to become verifiers (IQAs).

'My assessor demonstrated an excellent knowledge of her field of work and assisted me in developing my role as Internal Verifier.
I have recommended Crescent Training to my CEO for our staff as I feel they offer a top quality service.'
