ITQ delivery, assessment and quality assurance

Get ready to deliver the new ITQs with our delivery and assessment advice

The basic delivery model for the ITQ is Assess-Train-Assess, but as you can imagine, there’s a little more to it than that. There are two main delivery options for learners wishing to achieve their ITQ:

  • Work-based approach: This is when a candidate builds an assessment portfolio by gathering evidence of their ICT skills at the workplace. This means a learner can apply their IT skills directly to their day-to-day work. Alternatively, a learner might want to study at a learning centre, producing evidence using tests and scenarios, or a mixture of both. A full list of possible assessment techniques can be found on the ITQ assessment methods page
  • Accreditation of Prior Achievement (APA): A learner’s existing training and qualifications can be used as evidence for optional units in their ITQ with the final mandatory unit being assessed separately. You can learn more on our contributing qualifications page
