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 verifier who are suitably qualified for the specific occupational area. Assessors and internal 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

 

 

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 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 sfor qualifications will be awarded:

 

  • A certificate listing the unit achieved, and
