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. You will need to complete 4 workplace assessments and 4 vocational assessments, so 8 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.
