Assessing Competence in the Work Environment (Level 3) - Part-time

Course outline

This is an accredited professional course for people working as an assessor of NVQ or similar work-based qualifications.

The course is designed to support you in your role, enhancing your knowledge and your professional practice in the workplace. You will study two units:

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
  • Assess occupational competence in the work environment.

You’ll be studying alongside other professionals so there will be plenty of opportunity to share ideas and best practice. You’ll also have the support of your tutor who will offer you guidance which will enable you to succeed on the course.

Nottingham College currently offers three Level 3 Assessor Qualifications:

  • The Assessing Competence in the Work Environment Award is for those that assess NVQ or similar qualifications and assess the learner in a work environment. It is the direct replacement of the A1 award and is compulsory for those that assess NVQ style qualifications. This award would be suitable for a Hairdressing assessor, for example.
  • The Assessing Vocational Achievement Award is a for those that do not assess NVQ style qualifications but do assess preparing for employment qualifications which are more classroom based. For both awards students will need to get some work assessing one of the above types of learners.
  • The Certificate is for those that are assessing both types of learners and combines both awards.
