As of 1st October 2015, it is now mandatory for all Training Providers to have an Internal Quality Assuror. This person will check procedures, documentation, exam papers, certification and so on. They will then give you an Operational Risk level based on their findings. This is to help keep best practice within centres.
Relevant qualifications that a IQA can have are:
Internal Verifier (IV) - This is an old style qualification but is still valid
Lvl 4 Award in Internal Quality Assurance (QCF) - This is the new standard qualification, it must be regulated, Ofqual approved and come from an Awarding Organisation.
A IQA CPD certificate issued by an Awarding Body - These will be accepted and will show competence in the IQA skillset.
