"I chose to complete the Level 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance or Assessment Processes and Practices, in a bid to enhance and develop my critical thinking and learning in my role as both a Tutor and an IQA. The Level 4 IQA has accelerated both my knowledge and skillset into starting me on my journey as an IQA. I feel more confident and equipped to begin this role and begin it well. A mixture of both online tutorials and ePortfolio, together with regular reviews and contact, really made me feel there was support throughout my learning journey. I knew any questions or advice I needed, this would be met; and it was".
