Level 3 in Assessors Courses

Course Aims

You will learn the various stages of carrying out valid and reliable assessments. This includes the initial assessment of your candidates, planning your assessments, effective observations with supplementary questions and constructive feedback.

You will receive ongoing feedback as your progress through the course, meaning you will learn from your mistakes and develop as an assessor. Ultimately, you will gain the knowledge and skills to become a professional and reliable independent assessor.

Qualification Objective

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement replaces the old A1 course and is designed to help you gain a level 3 assessing qualification remotely, without the need for attending any classroom sessions.

Electronic presentations, video links and audio recordings guide you through each of the three units, enabling you to complete both the theoretical and practical assessments.

About the Qualification

The first part of the course is to complete a written assignment on the principles and practices of assessing. You will be sent an electronic presentation, along with an accompanying course textbook to guide you through the assessment questions. Support is available from one of our experienced tutors via email and phone. The submissions team will provide feedback on draft work and support you to pass the unit.

The second part of the course is the practical assessments. Our electronic resources with video links will guide you through the format for both the workplace and vocational assessments that you need to complete. Blank templates will be provided that enable you to carry out the assessments step by step.

Depending on the level you are undertaking (Award or Certificate) you will need to complete 2 workplace assessments and 2 vocational assessments, so 4 in total. One of your assessments will need to be observed by a mentor or video recorded and submitted for verification.

Finally, you will complete a professional discussion on the assessments you have completed, before your portfolio is formally assessed and nationally certified
