Award in assessing vocationally related achievement

Award in assessing vocationally related achievement.




One of our assessor award courses, this qualification provides the knowledge, skills and understanding for individuals wishing to undertake qualification assessment of vocationally related qualifications for which they are occupationally competent to deliver/assess. Trainee assessors might include individuals who currently work in a mentoring/teaching/ training capacity wanting to develop their knowledge and skills of competence based assessment in a vocational setting.

The qualification can be used, alongside occupational competence (and any other role specific requirements), to assess Learners’ competence in sector specific qualifications. It is a knowledge and practical based qualification and requires Trainee assessors to have access to learners completing vocationally related qualifications in order to generate the evidence required to complete this qualification.

It will help the Trainee assessor to build an understanding of the principles and practices of assessment and how to assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding. It teaches Learners how to use the following assessments (although not all these require performance evidence):

  • Assessment of the Learner in simulated environments
  • Skills tests
  • Oral and written questions
  • Assignments
  • Projects
  • Case studies
  • Recognising Prior Learning
