Assessing Competence in the Work Environment

Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment. For people who want to assess in the workplace. This is the direct replacement qualification for the NVQ Assessor Award Unit A1.

Further Information

This qualification is for people who are working in, or want to work in Assessment. It is part of a suite of qualifications which have  replaced the Assessor and Verifier Units (A1 and V1 awards). This course provides people who carry out assessment in their organisation with the opportunity to develop and improve their practice as well as achieving a professional qualification for their assessor role. 

 

The course covers two units:  

  1. Understanding the principles and practices of Assessment 

This is the theory section covering all the important knowledge you need regarding planning, carrying out and developing assessments. This knowledge-based unit emphasises the importance of the shared knowledge and experience of peers and colleagues for good practice and reflection on assessment approaches. Our dedicated team of tutors will guide you through all that is required to complete this unit. 

 

     2. Assess occupational competence in the work environment 

This is the practical section where you will be assessed as you carry out your own assessments in a workplace setting, for example assessing people carrying out tasks at work, assessing NVQ candidates carrying out tasks on work placements. You will be observed planning, and carrying out assessments as well as briefing and debriefing candidates. 

In gaining the Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment you will have the skills and knowledge to prepare and carry out assessments using a wide range of modern, flexible and well proven methods in the workplace. For example using observations, examining work products, oral questioning and discussions, personal portfolios and on the spot witnesses.  

Course Entry Requirements

Although there are no formal entry requirements for this course (ie you don’t need a specific certificate or award to enrol), you should have a qualification or experience in the subject you want to assess in. You will also need your own candidates to carry out the observed sample assessment on, these could be people could be from your company / organisation or via a voluntary group or community setting. 

This qualification forms part of a full framework of qualifications for assessors and quality assurance personnel. As such the Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement is recognised by Ofqual. Each unit or section of this qualification has specific learning outcomes and assessment criteria. To pass these, learners must meet all the learning outcomes and our team of expert assessor trainers and tutors will guide and support you through all these requirements. 

Successful achievers will understand the principles of assessment and have the knowledge to develop and improve systems at their training centre or workplace.
