Assessment will be based on the twelve units of competency and cover the four areas below.

  • Theory questions are designed to allow the candidate to demonstrate underpinning knowledge
  • Portfolio of documentary evidence: a collection of documents that the candidate produces in the course of everyday work
  • Third party evidence reports provide an overall assessment from a supervisor or colleague who has already gained competence in the area being assessed
  • Assessor interview summary: as part of the quality assurance procedure, the Assessor will call the candidate to discuss the assessment and ask questions specifically related to the evidence submitted.

Each tool provides a different type of evidence which alone is not sufficient to demonstrate competence, however together provide a well-rounded picture of the candidate's ability to perform competently and confidently in the workplace.
