Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment

This qualification is for you if you are carrying out assessments and quality assurance in most learning environments including Further Education, Adult Continuing Learning, Employers and Third Sector.

You will study all the essential principles and practices of training assessment and quality assurance, including assessing competence and achievement. You will learn in the work environment and will be assessed using the following assessment methods: observation, examining work products, oral questioning and discussion, use of witnesses, learner statements and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

There are two units; the first is theory-based, which is assessed by a series of short questions and a presentation. The second is a practical unit which involves practical, observation, evidence gathering and written work.

These qualifications can help you to progress your career as a Qualified Assessor or Trainer.
