Already a Teacher – the next step is:
Award in Assessing
Perhaps you are already a teacher and have been wondering about your career path – the next step is to become an Assessor - all of the tutors at IBHT have completed their Assessor training and are qualified Assessors.
This short course is an essential for any training centre wishing to deliver valid qualifications and also for a teacher wishing to advance their career.
The Assessor is in charge of checking and verifying that their learners are achieving their qualification. The Assessor role is a very responsible one and is the first part of the quality assurance system integral to the fairness of how qualifications are delivered and awarded.
When a student has achieved all aspects of their course to the required standard, the Assessor can sign off on it, passing it to the next person in the quality assurance process – the Internal Quality Assurer (IQA)

Award in Internal Quality Assurance:
The Internal Quality Assurer (IQA) is in charge of checking and making sure that all the Assessor’s decisions are standardised, accurate and legitimate. They work closely with the assessment team and with the awarding body to ensure the highest quality in a training organisations assessment practices. If the IQA is confident in the Assessors procedures they will then complete and pass on the relevant paperwork to the person in the next stage of the process.
A teacher/assessor, who has some experience in assessment procedures and processes would be ideally placed to take on this qualification. When an IQA has gained some experience in their field the next step in their career could be to qualify as an External Quality Assurer (EQA).
The EQA works for the awarding body (City & Guilds, ITEC, VTCT etc) and will make a number of visits to training organisations each year to ensure all of the people involved in the delivery and assessment of training are meeting the required criteria. Ultimately it is the EQA who will sign off on a student’s qualifications allowing the college to claim for their certificates.

Many teachers have gone on to furthering the promotion and development of educational policies both at a national and European level and many sit on various boards and councils. In the 2011 Dail out of a total of 154 seats filled, 30 of these TDs were former national and secondary school teachers, pre-school teachers and university lecturers. That number was down from 2007 when 38 politicians who previously worked in education entered the Dail.
