AIM Associate IQAs


 AIM operate an internal quality assurance framework that ensures end-point assessments delivered by AIM: 

  • are fit for purpose 
  • give all apprentices equal access and opportunity to demonstrate their achievements 
  • have been through an appropriate development and approval process 
  • are relevant: the EPA is current and genuinely measures occupational competence. Achievement of the apprenticeship is a dependable predictor of success in the occupation 
  • are reliable: the EPA produces consistent outcomes irrespective of context, cohort, timing or the organisations involved 
  • are reviewed regularly to ensure they comply with the above statements


Much of the delivery of our EPA assessments are quality assured by our associate Internal Quality Assurers (IQAs).  The Internal Quality Assurer (IQA) is a dual professional, with both assessment and subject level expertise. The role is key in ensuring the validity and reliability of judgements and ultimately the issue of apprenticeship certificates.


As an associate IQA working with AIM you will:

  1. Plan, operate and evaluate quality assurance systems, by risk rating assessors and setting associated sampling/monitoring plans
  2. Support and develop assessors by providing advice and leading standardisation activities
  3. Monitor and improve the quality of assessment practice by observing assessments and reviewing assessment decisions and documents
  4. Report on the quality of assessment by completing reports and attending meetings


IQAs are expected to have a small caseload of assessments each year.
