Assessment

This qualification is competence-based, candidates must demonstrate the level of

competence described in the units. Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s

skill, knowledge and understanding against the standards set in the qualification.

Each candidate is required to produce a portfolio of evidence which demonstrates their

achievement of all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for each unit.

Evidence can include: – observation report by assessor

– assignments/projects/reports

– professional discussion

– witness testimony

– candidate product

– worksheets

– record of oral and written questioning

– Recognition of Prior Learning

Learning outcomes set out what a candidate is expected to know, understand or be able to

do.

Assessment criteria specify the standard a candidate must meet to show the learning

outcome has been achieved.

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria can be found from page 8.

Internal Quality Assurance

An internal quality assurance verifier confirms that assessment decisions made in centres

are made by competent and qualified assessors, that they are the result of sound and fair

assessment practice and that they are recorded accurately and appropriately.

Adjustments to Assessment

Adjustments to standard assessment arrangements are made on the individual needs of

candidates. ProQual’s Reasonable Adjustments Policy and Special Consideration Policy sets

out the steps to follow when implementing reasonable adjustments and special

considerations and the service that ProQual provides for some of these arrangements.

Centres should contact ProQual for further information or queries about the contents of the

policy.
