Mandatory units

  1. Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment (D/601/5313)
  2. Assess Occupational Competence in the Work Environment (H/601/5314)
  3. Assess Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding (F/601/5319)

This qualification has adaptation applied to delivery and assessment. We have worked with the Education and Training Foundation to agree adaptations.

Students will still need to prepare a portfolio of evidence. We encourage centres to review our guidance on the types of evidence, and evidence capture, that we permit including e.g. the use of video, photos and other digital means of demonstrating knowledge and skills.

Students are still required to complete the work placement, but the focus should be on learning outcomes and evidencing competence. We have removed the requirement for students to complete a minimum number of placement hours; hours should still be recorded.

The adaptation addendum document contains further information of how learning outcome / evidence of competence needs to be met either within the workplace or via alternative assessment methods.

For further information please see the adaptation addendum document below.
