Observation of practical assessments:

For unit 2 you will need to have access to at least two candidates going through assessments and have one of those assessments observed. Observations can be carried out by qualified personnel at your workplace, you will need to submit evidence of their qualifications. Alternatively MKLC can do the observations either by video or live visit depending on location, there is an additional cost for this.

Course Units:

  • Unit 1 Understanding the principles and practices of assessment

This is a knowledge unit and requires you to be able to understand the principles of assessment, the different methods, how to plan assessments, involve others, make decisions, and understand quality assurance, legal and good practice requirements and how to manage information. The method of assessment of the unit is through written explanations. Although it is mandatory, this unit alone does not qualify you to assess. Those who choose to complete this unit only will be those who need to know about assessment but who are not going to carry out any assessments.

  • Unit 2 Assess occupational competence in the work environment

This unit is ideal for those doing NVQ-type qualifications where assessments are carried out at work with candidates performing their everyday duties. You have to demonstrate that you can plan an assessment of occupational competence, make decisions, provide records, and follow legal and good practice requirements. The method of assessment is by observation of you carrying out an assessment in the workplace, questioning the learner, discussions with the learner, and examining their work products as well as their learner statements.

It includes the following assessment methods (although not all of these require performance evidence):

  • observation of performance in the work environment;
  • examining products of work;
  • questioning the learner;
  • discussing with the learner;
  • use of others (witness testimony);
  • looking at learner statements;
  • recognising prior learning.

ou must be aged 19 or over.

We do recognise prior achievement but certificates must be forwarded to us for approval before starting the programme. Our policy is that the course is open to everyone who is capable of reaching the required standards.
