The IfA have approved the Digital Apprenticeship Quality Board, supported by NSAR to deliver the external quality assurance (EQA) service for the 12 published level 3 and level 4 digital standards. There are now over 12,000 starts on these new standards and ten organisations are now registered to deliver end-point assessments. The EQA service will ensure that the end point assessments are consistent and comparable across end-point assessment organisations – and that the assessment decisions are occupationally valid.
The first output from the service will be a Market Insight Report – based on the early experience of all the registered end-point assessment organisations. This will provide invaluable feedback on how end-point assessment is working in practice and will identify the initial priorities for external quality assurance – as well as highlighting areas for continuous improvement. The Report will be delivered early in this Year.
