"Your course moderation is important"
The course moderator decides if the course has met the standards of the awarding body, in our case, Trinity College London.
The moderator is not involved in the training. He will come from Trinity College London for the final day and will meet all of the trainees individually and as a group. He will discuss with the trainees whether they have received the training that they expected. He will review all the trainees work and assess the materials assignment including paperwork relating to observation feedback and input sessions. The moderator makes recommendations to the centre and reports directly to Trinity College in London
The Examination Board or Awarding Body is the institution that sets and marks the examinations and/or assessment procedures needed in order to obtain the qualification. The ‘awarding body’ is the institution whose name will appear on the certificate that is given as a result of success on a course. e.g Trinity, Cambridge etc. This is what makes your qualification acceptable to reputable institutions worldwide
