Audits are evidence-based investigations of documents and processes.
TASC uses two general approaches to audit:
- desktop audits – course providers are asked to supply documents and materials to TASC. TASC undertakes a review of the materials and gives formal feedback to schools and colleges.
- site-visit audits – TASC representatives visit schools and colleges to view teaching and learning materials and hold face-to-face discussions about the evidence presented. Formal feedback is given to the provider by TASC.
TASC audits are underpinned by the following auditing principles:
- outcomes focused
- evidence based
- focus on continuous improvement
- fair, open and transparent.
