Ascentis’ Amazing EQAs
Ascentis are proud to offer a fantastic EQA service, providing our centres with guidance, support and industry expertise. Ascentis EQAs (External Quality Assurers) ensure the regulations set by Ascentis are met and national standards of qualifications maintained. These representatives of Ascentis will go above and beyond to support centres and make sure that they have everything they need.
Our EQAs conduct activities with centres to:
- Ensure the assessment practice and procedures meet the requirements of both the centre and Ascentis
- Check that internal quality assurance (IQA) judgements meet the requirements and the IQA procedure is in place
- Assess the consistency and quality of sampling assignments, assessor judgements and reviewing assessment records
- Ensure centres are fully equipped to deliver Ascentis qualifications to a high standard and have the correct staffing and resources in place
- Meet with the staff and learners of the centres to make sure all resources promised by Ascentis are provided
Here is some of the fantastic feedback we have received from centres:
“Our tutors find the marking of Ascentis ESOL papers much easier than other awarding organisations we have used – we particularly like the positive marking ethos and how things are structured.”
“It was very nice to have the Quality Review carried out face to face and it was nice to have the support. People are often afraid of the process, but this has been great.”
“We find the format of the qualifications work really well for the centre, particularly the SOQs, as they can pick short topics and learners can achieve in a shorter timescale, which suits the learner needs better.”
“The process is straight forward, and we like that we can prepare in advance and upload the relevant documents. The support we received from the Quality Reviewer over the last academic year went well and that the communication has been effective.”
