Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance

Accredited by City and Guilds, the Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA)programmes are specific to your needs and can be developed to meet your own organisational standards. What’s more, your investment in work based training will help to alleviate skills shortages, motivate staff by supporting them to achieve nationally recognised qualifications and improve staff retention.

TAQA qualifications are for staff that are working in, or looking to gain entry to, roles in Training, Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance.  They have been developed by LLUK to replace the Assessor and Verifier Units which expire on 31 December 2010.
