The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement Award replaces A1 Assessor Award. The revised standards are designed to reflect the requirements of Assessors in all occupational sectors, and are also the benchmark of good practice in the assessment of NVQ qualifications.


This work-based, professional qualification is delivered via tutorials, and is assessed via observation, written questioning, professional discussion and review of portfolio evidence. This qualification is intended for those who assess both occupational competence in the work environment and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace (such as a workshop, classroom or other training environment).


Course Aim
After completing the award you should be able to:

• Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
• Assess occupational competence in the work environment
• Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding


How the 4 week course works
1) Call us on 020 3744 7278 or email us for a booking form and book on to your training date
2) Receive your workbook and theory text book when you arrive for day one of your training
3) Attend the 4 day tutor-led classroom based course and complete your coursework assignments

The theory side of the course is made up of coursework tasks which are answered in questions & answers format.

Trainee assessors are expected to demonstrate knowledge of assessment. They will also be expected to carry out a minimum four assessments that examine the skills , knowledge and understanding of your two candidates. The assessments should include checking prior learning, observation of practice and work products, questioning and discussions. You are free to use any other appropriate additional assessment methods. Simulation is not allowed. 

It is possible to combine both the theory and practical requirements of the course at the same time depending on your needs. We however usually give trainee-assessors up to three weeks to complete the unit questions that come with unit one. Once they are done with the theory and ready for the practical part of the course, they can then go ahead to prepare, plan and conduct assessments with their two candidates. 

All course work is to be handed in to your tutor at the end of your day 4.
