The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) and the Designated Quality Body in England (DQB) have agreed arrangements for the external quality assurance (EQA) of degree apprenticeships in England.
DQB will deliver Quality Assurance for degree apprenticeships in England, on behalf of the Office for Students (OfS). Assessments under the new quality assurance method will begin from July 2022.
The Designated Quality Body in England (DQB) is operated on an arms-length basis by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
DQB have published a handbook for providers that sets out the method, as well as the key templates for providers to use when making their submissions. You can access this guidance here.
