How long is the course? Entry requirement You need to demonstrate competency in order to enroll for this course.This is the full qualification if you want to be an NVQ assessor. This qualification is intended for those who assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the work environment for example a workshop, classroom or other training environment. We are now offering this qualification, so if you think this might be the one for you, speak to us for some free advice and guidance. This could be learners on a course or workers on an in-house course that has a clear structure, learning outcomes and can be assessed by prior learning, observation of practice and work products, questioning and discussions. The lessons start on the 27th of August. Many jobs combine some teaching or training duties with the assessment work. How long is the course? Becoming an assessor has suddenly become very confusing. Course Course time: Times may change subject to demand 1- assessor qualification A1 level 3: Tuesday 5 pm to 7 pm. If the advertised dates do not suit your availability it may be possible to arrange an alternative suitable date.
The level 3 award in assessing vocationally related achievement is made up of two mandatory units. Their allocated assessor will support the trainee during their assessor journey with their own two candidates.
We however give you an additional 4 weeks if you fail to complete during the normal duration which stretches the time period to a maximum 10 weeks!
The learners who you will be assessing do not need to be enrolled on a formal qualification but a learning programme with a clear assessment criteria and opportunities to assess using a range of assessment methods including those highlighted above.
If the advertised dates do not suit your availability it may be possible to arrange an alternative suitable date. CAVA is the one that is most similar to the old A1 qualification.Their allocated assessor will support the trainee during their assessor journey with their own two candidates. The lessons start on the 27th of August. When I qualified in it was easy: you completed the A1 Award and all was well. The structure of the course includes, an induction workshop where you will learn about the theory and under-pinning knowledge of working as an assessor. You would normally work with people on a one-to-one basis but may do some group work from time to time. This is the full qualification if you want to be an NVQ assessor. They will also be expected to carry out a minimum four assessments that examine the skills , knowledge and understanding of your two candidates. This unit alone would also be enough for you to assess non-NVQ qualifications — or non-accredited programmes — in some organisations. Competency is demonstrated by having qualifications or experience in the subject area you want to assess. We however give you an additional 4 weeks if you fail to complete during the normal duration which stretches the time period to a maximum 10 weeks!
This one qualifies you to assess learners in the work place and carry out competency-based assessments. Until recently, we were offering this as a stand-alone qualification, but now it's included as one of the compulsory units in CAVA more about this in a minute and I do not mean a refreshing sparkling wine.
However what most of us think of when we think of an assessor is the person who comes into our workplace to put together a portfolio of evidence to show we are competent in our roles when we are completing an NVQ.
If you have completed the Award in Education and Training you might have already done this unit, but it is unlikely because this unit is quite long, meaning that many providers including us tend to opt for the shorter unit in AET to keep costs low for the learner.
It is competency and knowledge based so, most of the time, you will need to have a caseload already if you want to sign up to this course…which can be tricky if you need to have the qualification to assess….
