ASSESSMENT & ACCREDITATION

ASSESSMENT & ACCREDITATION

QA Associates are a BTEC Approved Assessment Centre accredited by Pearson/Edexcel to mark assessment and examination submissions from learners seeking work-related BTEC qualifications.

We have, over many years, developed a very successful model of BTEC accreditation. By working in conjunction with training providers, who deliver the specialist training elements, and the awarding organisation, who provide the formal qualification, QA Associates are able to offer an efficient and cost-effective service to organisations looking to develop & up-skill their workforce.

The logistics of assessment and verification can be complex, and managing these elements throughout the delivery of an accredited training programme can be time-consuming and ultimately, expensive. Organisations wishing to develop formal staff training programmes are often unable to because they lack the time or expertise to ensure that their processes are resilient enough to comply with the stringent regulatory requirements of BTEC accreditation.

QA Associates are experts in the field of assessment, verification & accreditation and have been providing a fully outsourced ‘Accredited Assessment Centre’ service on behalf of our clients for a number of years. We understand the importance of staff development and the benefits it can bring to an organisation and our partners trust us to deliver a thorough and flexible solution – knowing that our policies and procedures are robust, accurate and have successfully undergone continuous, rigorous scrutiny and external verification.

Senior management play a very active role, together with others in managing the systems and in monitoring the effectiveness of delivery and assessment. Good use is made of electronic storage. There is good back up provided for all data and GDPR issues are being implemented carefully.
