As an ATC/ P Coordinator it is important that you appoint the right people in the right roles. The guidance currently says for NPLQ that the person completing this must have: 

  • Knowledge of the qualification that is being quality assured
  • Knowledge and understanding of the course training and assessment procedure
  • The ability to interpret awarding organisation policy and guidance and convey this accurately to all involved in the course training and assessment process
  • Good organisational and administrative skills
  • Good communication skills
  • Good decision-making skills

The rules around First Aid qualifications are a little different. When appointing someone to carry out an IQA of ANY first aid course they must hold a relevant current Regulated qualification First Aid at work or NPLQ and hold a relevant Internal Quality Assurance Qualification or have attended our 1 day CPD – Please see page 12 of the Approved Training Centre/ Provider Guidance Manual for an example list.

We STRONGLY recommend that anyone completing an Internal Quality Assurance check on NPLQ has either a relevant IQA qualification or has attended our one-day CDP course.
