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 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

 

Assessors must be occupationally competent in the unit(s) they are assessing. This means that each assessor must, according to current sector practice, be competent in the functions covered by the unit(s) they are assessing. They will have gained their occupational competence working within the Road Tunnel Management Sector or within an appropriate occupational sector. They are not required to occupy a position in the organisation more senior than that of the candidate(s) they are assessing. Centres must be alert to the risks that all such arrangements could present and ensure that sufficient quality controls are in place through the internal quality assurance verification process to minimise the possibility of collusion between candidates and assessors. Assessors must be able to demonstrate consistent application of the skills and the current supporting knowledge and understanding in the context of a recent role directly related to the units they are assessing as a practitioner, trainer or manager.

 

 

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

 

Assessment

Candidates must demonstrate the level of knowledge described in the units. 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 8 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.

 

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

 

Results Enquiries and Appeals

All enquiries relating to assessment or other decisions should be dealt with by centres, with

reference to ProQual’s Enquiries and Appeals Procedures.

 

 

 

Certification

 

Candidates who achieve the requirements for qualifications will be awarded:

 

·         A certificate listing the unit achieved, and

·         A certificate giving the full qualification title –

 

ProQual Level 3 Diploma in Road Tunnel Operations

 

 

 

Claiming certificates

 

Centres may claim certificates for candidates who have been registered with ProQual and who have successfully achieved the requirements for a qualification. All certificates will be issued to the centre for successful candidates.

 

 

Replacement certificates

 

If a replacement certificate is required a request must be made to ProQual in writing. Replacement certificates are labelled as such and are only provided when the claim has been authenticated. Refer to the Fee Schedule for details of charges for replacement certificates.
