Internal quality assurance should monitor both the delivery and assessment of the
qualification and can involve a number of different methods of monitoring e.g. observation of
course delivery/assessment, sampling of course assessment material, learner interviews etc.
For HABC centres new to internal quality assurance we have developed a free Tutor, Assessor
and Internal Quality Assurance Guidance Pack which provides comprehensive guidance and
examples of how this system can be implemented and managed simply.

First Aid: The Essential Guide

HABC guide to Internal Quality Assurance (IQA) for a First Aid Centre
Centres delivering the HABC Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (QCF) and/or the
HABC Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work (QCF) are required to have a robust internal quality
support system in place. The information below acts as guidance on how an IQA strategy can be
implemented, however centres are able to implement their own strategies where available.

Minimum Centre Workforce Requirements


An IQA Officer is responsible for the quality assurance of the delivery and assessment of the
qualification. They are required to:
1.

be occupationally competent in the area of first aid

2.

have working knowledge of the requirements of the qualification they are quality
assuring at the time any assessment is taking place

3.

have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the role of tutors/assessors and


internal quality assurance

4.
visit and observe assessments supporting tutors and assessors in their delivery and
assessment
5.

ensure the delivery and assessment meets qualification requirements

6.

ensure all assessment paperwork is completed accurately

7.

ensure all tutors/assessors IQAd

8.

support/develop tutors/assessors

9.

provide an audit trail of IQA

In addition to the above, IQAs could look to complete a recognised qualification in internal
quality assurance which would look to support their knowledge and understanding of the role.

The IQA Officer should not:


1.

be involved in the delivery of the course they are quality assuring

2.

be involved in the assessment of the course they are quality assuring

10

First Aid: The Essential Guide

How to implement an IQA process?

Step 1 Tutor/Assessor Grading:


First of all agree an initial grade for tutors/assessors to begin to identify how much support they
will require form the IQA Officer. This initial grading is not permanent and can change based on
tutor/assessor developments. A suggested grading method is shown below which uses a traffic
light system.
RED:

Tutors/Assessors who have little or no experience in


the delivery and/or assessment of the qualification.

AMBER:

Tutors/Assessors who have a moderate amount of


experience and competence in the delivery and/or
assessment of the qualification.

GREEN:

Tutors/Assessors who have a significant amount of


experience and competence in the delivery and/or
assessment of the qualification.

Step 2 Sample Strategies:


Once you graded you are then able to identify the volume or the amount of internal quality
assurance support needed as identified in the sample strategy below:
Grade

Sample Volume (figures provided are used as an example)

RED

Tutors/Assessors would require the following IQA support:



1 observation visit for every course registered, and

1 desk-based review for every course registered

AMBER

Tutors/Assessors would require the following IQA support:



1 observation visit for every 10 courses registered, and

1 desk-based review for every 10 courses registered

GREEN

Tutors/Assessors would require the following IQA support:



1 observation visit for every 20 courses registered, and

1 desk-based review for every 20 courses registered

PLEASE NOTE: For Tutors/Assessors that do not achieve the above guided amounts, a minimum of one annual
observation visit is recommended. In addition to the above, HABC would recommend a pre-certification check
that would contribute to your internal quality assurance.

First Aid: The Essential Guide

11

Step 3 Sample Plan:


Once you have created your sample strategy, you will then be required to put
together a sample plan for your IQA. This should provide the following:

an audit trail of all courses delivered

a sample plan for IQA

an outcome for each sample

Step 4 Sampling Report:


You should complete an IQA Sample Report for each of your checks e.g.
observation, desk based etc. This sample report can look at any of the following:

the delivery of the qualification

the assessment of the qualification

the completion of the assessment paperwork

Step 5 Keep an Audit Trail of IQA:


In order to help you keep an audit trail of your IQA, wed suggest keeping a folder of all your paperwork,
which can be made available for external quality assurance. These three folders should include the
following:

Folder 1 - all completed EFAW Assessment Packs

Folder 2 - all completed FAW Assessment Packs

Folder 3 - all IQA Packs (including plans and reports)

External Quality Assurance (EQA)


HABC is required by Ofqual, the HSE and SfH to quality assure our approved centres. EQA is a support
mechanism for our centres and their workforce. The EQA officers that complete your visits will be
employed by HABC their audits will include:

A Desk Based Review

Engagement Visits

All assessment and internal quality assurance paperwork


must be maintained for a minimum period of 3 years.
