External Quality Assurance (EQA)


External Quality Assurance (EQA)

At AIM, all non-examined assessment is subject to some form of external quality assurance.

Access to HE qualifications are regulated by QAA and follow a three-step moderation process.

The remaining Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) qualifications in this section of the website are regulated by Ofqual and are subject to monitoring which is dictated by the CASS strategy.


EQA monitoring

All qualifications on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) are required to have monitoring as part of the CASS strategy.

Before requesting an EQA monitoring, centres should ensure they have submitted the RACs they want to present for monitoring on the Quartz portal.

Please watch our video for guidance


Book your EQA

To request EQA monitoring, centres should complete the EQA monitoring request form. This will be confirmed, or an alternative date offered within two working days of submission. Monitoring activity should be requested at least two weeks in advance.

Once the EQA monitoring has been confirmed, AIM will select a sample which centres will be able to access  via MIA. Centres will be required to upload the documentation then upload these into the EQA report on MIA along with the relevant quality documents.
