Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement Level 3

Delivery Method: eLearning

Who should take this course?

This course is required by anyone who is carrying out an assessing role alongside teaching or independently in a classroom environment.

Course requirements

The second unit is practical and requires the student to carry out two assessments with two candidates. Assessments in the classroom may include diagnostic testing.

Course Delivery

The course is a level 3 online self paced programme. The student is allocated a tutor for support, who will also mark their assessments. The student works through the course at their own pace. We suggest starting with the first unit (this is the knowledge and theory unit ) reading through the notes, taking part in discussion topics, and then submitting the assignments.

The student can then progress to the second practical unit. The second unit is aimed at those assessing candidates in the classroom or other training environments

Course Content

Unit 1 Understanding the principles and practices of assessment

This is a knowledge unit and requires you to be able to understand the principles of assessment, the different methods, how to plan assessments, involve others, make decisions, and understand quality assurance, legal and good practice requirements and how to manage information. The method of assessment of the unit is through written explanations. Although it is mandatory, this unit alone does not qualify you to assess. Those who choose to complete this unit only will be those who need to know about assessment but who are not going to carry out any assessments.

Unit 3 Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

This unit is aimed at those who carry out assessments in the classroom or other training environments. You have to prepare assessments such as tests, assignments, questions or projects, carry out these assessments, keep records and follow legal and good practice requirements. The method of assessment is by observation of you carrying out assessments of vocational skills outside the work environment. If you combine this unit with Unit 1, you will gain an Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement.

It includes the following assessment methods (although not all of these require performance evidence):

  • assessments of the learner in simulated environments;
  • skills tests;
  • oral and written questions;
  • assignments;
  • projects;
  • case studies;
  • recognising prior learning.
