Introduction

The Level 3 Awards in Energy Management qualifications are appropriate for individuals

working in the areas of, for example, facilities management, property or environmental

services, who want to up-skill or demonstrate their skills and knowledge in one of the

energy management specialist areas.

There are 11 Awards which each comprise a single unit; these units are also part of the Level

3 Diploma in Energy Management (refer to the ProQual Level 3 Diploma in Energy

Management specification).

The awarding organisation for this qualification is ProQual Awarding Body and the

regulatory body is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). The

specification for these qualifications has been approved by the Welsh Government for use

by centres in Wales and by the Council for the Curriculum Examinations and Assessment

(CCEA) for use by centres in Northern Ireland.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for these qualifications.

Centres should carry out an initial assessment of candidate skills and knowledge to identify

Assessment

Candidates must demonstrate the level of knowledge described in the unit. Assessment is

the process of measuring a candidate’s knowledge and understanding against the standards

set in the qualification.

Each candidate is required to produce evidence which demonstrates their achievement of

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

Evidence can include: – assignments/projects/reports

– worksheets

– portfolio of evidence

– record of oral and/or written questioning

– candidate test papers

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 for this qualification can be found from page 9

onwards.

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.
