Our External Quality Assurers (EQAs) monitor the quality of assessments delivered by our centres, ensuring our qualifications are delivered in line with our regulatory requirements. They provide our centres with guidance, support and current industry expertise. EQAs are contracted on an annual basis and are not employed by the City & Guilds Group.
The EQA role is both a challenging and rewarding experience. You will maintain effective working relationships with allocated centres and City & Guilds. This is a great opportunity to be able to use your expertise to provide advice and support to new and existing centres, planning and monitoring quality assurance in line with City & Guilds policies and procedures.
EQAs will receive support through a range of updates, webinars and briefings, to maintain a thorough knowledge of City & Guilds products, services, and policies.
