Assessing Vocational Achievement Level 3 Certificate

(replaces A1 Assessor Award)

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement Award replaces A1 Assessor Award. These revised standards are designed to reflect the requirements of Assessors in all occupational sectors, and are the benchmark of good practice in the assessment of NVQ qualifications and have been updated in-line with the new QCF framework.

This work-based, professional qualification is delivered via one-to-one tutorials, and is assessed via observation, written questioning, professional discussion and review of portfolio evidence. This qualification is intended for those who assess both occupational competence in the work environment and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace (for example a workshop, classroom or other training environment).

After completing the award you should be able to:

• Understanding the principles and practices of assessment

• Assess occupational competence in the work environment

• Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

You can do the Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment Unit as a separate course. It will cost (£199) – Awarding Body certified or (£99) - College certified. This course will provide participants with the necessary knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices of assessment and helps them meet the latest standards and requirements for assessment and verification practice. It is a full day or several evening sessions (6 hours in total) which will cover the latest principles and practices of assessment.

This is a full cost course at £728.95 (this includes the exam fee)
