The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement is for those who need to be qualified in all aspects of assessment; it is designed to assess the competence and vocational skills knowledge and understanding of people in the workplace, and replaces the old NVQ A1 Assessor Award.
These new qualifications are designed to meet the emerging needs of the developing qualification frameworks. As well as being a requirement if you wish to assess or verify NVQs and other qualifications confirming occupational competence, these qualifications will be valuable to any staff involved in or responsible for assessing and quality-assuring all vocational and vocationally related achievement.The qualifications contain knowledge units for each assessor and quality assurance role, which are available as one-unit Awards. These will be valuable if you need an understanding of these roles but are not yet in a position to practise because you have not yet started the role, or you are a manager responsible for assessors and verifiers but do not undertake these roles yourself. Additional units confirming competence can be taken at the same time as, or after, achieving the knowledge unit.These qualifications are appropriate for all staff assessing and quality-assuring qualifications in the QCF, including staff assessing on non-NVQ or non-competence-based qualifications, ensuring that they meet agreed standards of assessment.
This qualification is designed for those who are
part of a Learning & Development team assessing in the workplace
assessing in a classroom
assessing NVQ/Competence based qualifications
assessing Apprenticeship programmes
