Level 3 Assessor Qualifications 3

Introduction

The ProQual assessor suite of qualifications provides nationally recognised qualifications for

candidates whose role involves assessing competence based units or qualifications:

  • Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment
  • Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement
  • Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

The awarding organisation for this qualification is ProQual AB. This qualification is regulated

by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and the Council for the

Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) Regulation. The Regulated Qualifications

Framework (RQF) includes those qualifications regulated by Ofqual and CCEA Regulation.

These qualifications have been accredited onto the Regulated Qualifications Framework

(RQF). Candidates who achieve either of the Level 3 Awards may progress to the Level 3

Certificate which provides a progression route to discipline related Level 4 qualifications

such as ProQual’s Internal Quality Assurance qualifications.

Qualification Aims

These qualifications are aimed at assessors in a variety of contexts, those assessing in the

workplace and those assessing in alternative environments such as workshops, classrooms

and other training environments.

Each qualification includes a unit that covers all the essential knowledge and understanding

that assessors need, plus one or more units that describe competent practice. This offers

flexibility and a greater potential to meet the needs of assessors working in different

environments.

Aims:

  • To assess the candidate assessor’s knowledge and understanding of the principles

and practices that underpin assessment.

  • To assess the candidate assessor’s performance in assessing occupational

competence in an individual’s work environment (Award in Assessing Competence

in the Work Environment).

  • To assess the candidate assessor’s performance in assessing vocational skills,

knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace – for

example workshops, classrooms or other training environments (Award in Assessing

Vocationally Related Achievement)

Recognition of Prior Learning

Candidates may request credit for non-certificated skills, knowledge or understanding

that they already possess, to avoid repetition. This is called ‘recognition of prior learning’

and is the process to follow if candidates can demonstrate they meet the assessment

criteria of that particular unit. Centre staff can advise candidates on an individual basis.

Centre Requirements

Centres must be approved to offer this qualification. If your centre is not approved please

complete and submit form ProQual Additional Qualification Approval Application.

Staff

Staff delivering this qualification must be appropriately qualified and/or occupationally

competent.

Assessors/Internal Quality Assurance

For each competence-based unit centres must be able to provide at least one assessor and

one internal quality assurance verifier who are suitably qualified for the specific

occupational area. Assessors and internal quality assurance verifiers for competence-based

units or qualifications will normally need to hold appropriate assessor or verifier

qualifications, such as:

  • Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment
  • Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement
  • Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement
  • Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practices
  • Certificate in Leading the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and

Practices

Support for Candidates

Materials produced by centres to support candidates should:

  • enable them to track their achievements as they progress through the learning

outcomes and assessment criteria;

  • provide information on where ProQual’s policies and procedures can be viewed;
  • provide a means of enabling Internal and External Quality Assurance staff to

authenticate evidence

ProQual, August 2020

Level 3 Assessor Qualifications 8

Assessment

Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s skill, knowledge and understanding

against the standards set in the qualification. The ProQual Assessor qualifications are

internally assessed by an appropriately experienced and qualified assessor. 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.

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 the assessor qualifications are included in this

document from page 10 onwards.

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

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.

ProQual, August 2020
