This qualification is internally assessed. Methods appropriate to the assessment of knowledge, understanding and skills include holistic assessment, observation, examination of work products, questions, professional discussions, expert witness testimony and recognition of prior learning.
For this qualification you will be assessed using a range of methods; all units must be assessed using methods appropriate to your own internal quality assurance (IQA) performance. These must include:
- observation of performance
- examining products of work
Direct evidence of this kind may be supplemented, where necessary, by professional discussion, reflective accounts or witness testimony (simulations are not allowed).
There must be sufficient valid evidence for all the assessment criteria. We use a Holistic assessment approach and encourage one piece of evidence to be used to meet the requirements of more than one assessment criterion.
Evidence must come from your own performance in the work environment. There must be evidence of you monitoring a minimum of two assessors, each with a minimum of two candidates of their own, through components of a qualification.
