I am so happy that the external verification of BTEC Level 2 IT, BTEC Level 3 IT and HND Computing has been a success. This is an important process each year where an examiner (known as a Standards Verifier) has to check our courses for quality and robustness in terms of assessment and following standards. With the verifier having signed off the courses, this gives me and my college team approval to issue certification to our students. 2019 is my first year being the Lead Internal Verifier for all these courses, having only been the lead of HND Computing previously. A Lead IV has to ensure other tutors are assessing work correctly and are following BTEC standards. Teamwork and communication is key for such a process to be successful. With the ongoing challenges within further and higher education, it is nice to get some really fantastic EV reports to close the academic year with.
