How will I be assessed?

There are no examinations with this qualification and it is therefore not possible to fail, candidates are either “competent” or “not yet competent”. Assessment of performance is made by consideration of the results of work-based activities to meet each unit’s assessment criteria.

You will produce a personal portfolio demonstrating understanding and application of skills to meet the assessment criteria. You will present your evidence to your assessor during planned assessment periods. If you select our online option you can submit evidence of the work you have done to meet the criteria through our e-portfolio system. Your assessor will determine the extent to which your evidence confirms completion of the assessment criteria. Feedback is provided and work to meet the criteria can be re-submitted until completion. The administration team monitor your progress to offer support and guidance throughout the qualification.

As an alternative to a paper-based portfolio, our e-portfolio system allows you to provide evidence from anywhere at anytime, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Using our e-portfolio means secure storage of evidence with no bulky paper-based portfolios to manage, store or send through the post. Our e-portfolio system enables clear and easy communication between you and your assessor.

We provide a face-to-face assessment package at our premises for those candidates that prefer this approach. The package includes an induction workshop and seven one-to-one assessment sessions at our premises over a 12 month period.
Alternatively, the induction, submission and assessment of evidence can be conducted on-line, using our e-portfolio system. You can upload evidence at any time so that it is ready for your seven pre-planned remote assessment sessions. If you choose e-portfolio assessments, you can opt to have your assessments as face-to-face sessions at our premises if you prefer.

In addition to our standard package we offer a premium package which benefits from three one-to-one mentor support sessions over a 12 month period. This provides additional personal guidance on how you can develop and gather evidence of your successful completion of your NVQ activities. Your mentor gets to know you and your organisation and can provide a valuable link to completion of the qualification efficiently.
