All learner grades for each component must have been approved by the VQA before the provider can release them to the learners.
A provider must apply for approval of learner grades using the process described in PSET Assessment and Moderation Guidelines for Providers.
The application requires completion of the Internal Moderation Report. The template can be found here.
Learner grades are approved on the basis of evidence of rigorous internal moderation of assessments as presented in the Internal Moderation Report and on the completed internal pre- and post-moderation forms.
If rigorous internal moderation of assessments has not been demonstrated, no learner grades will be approved, until the provider has addressed the issues identified by the VQA.
VQA will not issue qualification documents for a learner until all grades in the course for this learner have been approved.
