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 quality assurance verifier qualifications, such as:

 

  • ProQual Level 3 Certificate in Teaching, Training and Assessing
  • 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

 

 

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 and/or skills 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 could include:          –     observation report by assessor

  • assignments/projects/reports
  • professional discussion
  • witness testimony
  • 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 for this qualification can be found from page 7 onwards.

 

To achieve this qualification all candidates must produce evidence which demonstrates their achievement of all of the assessment criteria.

 

There must be valid, authentic and sufficient for all the assessment criteria. However, one piece of evidence may be used to meet the requirements of more than one learning outcome or assessment criterion.

 

Simulations are permitted where candidates, during the course of their qualification, are not able to provide evidence from naturally occurring events.

 

 

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 units achieved, and
  • A certificate giving the full qualification title –

 

ProQual Level 5 Certificate in Management of Water Production

 

 

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.

 

Unit certificates

If a candidate does not achieve all of the units required for a qualification, the centre may claim a unit certificate for the candidate which will list all of the units achieved.
