The Qualification is Suitable for Hairdressers, stylists and beauty therapists who are involved in reviewing the competence of learners. It is ideal for those who are looking to move up from simply practicing their profession to a teaching role where they will be required to review the competence of their learners.
At its conclusion candidates are awarded the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement, which is a real door opener within the industry. Those who may of only practiced their subject area thus far can now assess the competence of other learners. This shows they are skilled in their chosen field.
An example of this would be on an NVQ hairdressing Course. Candidates on these courses require an experienced assessor to judge the quality of their work. This is a job in itself whereby the end outcome qualifies the candidate within their chosen industry.
The qualification can be combined with the Level 3 Award in Education & Training Course, which is designed to enable candidates to teach unsupervised in their chosen field. Having both of these qualifications can open many doors and may even lead to full time positions within colleges and / or Barber, hairdressing and Beauty Therapist schools.
