    2.0 Introduction to the Qualification What are these qualifications? There are four nationally recognised qualifications in assessment, on the QCF: EAL Level 3 NVQ Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment: This qualification is intended for those who wish to gain an understanding of the principles and practices of assessment without any requirement to practice as assessors. EAL Level 3 NVQ Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment: This qualification is intended for assessors who assess occupational competence in an individual’s work environment. 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.

    EAL Level 3 NVQ Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement: This qualification is intended for those who assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the work environment (for example a workshop, classroom or other training environment). It includes the following assessment methods (although not all of these require performance evidence):

     assessments of the learner in simulated environments,  skills tests oral and written questions,  assignments projects,  case studies,  recognising prior learning.

    EAL Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement: This qualification is intended for those who assess both occupational competence in the work environment and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace (for example a workshop, classroom or other training environment). Who are these qualifications for? As a whole the qualifications are for:

     Those who wish to become assessors of a candidate’s occupational competence or of their vocational skills knowledge and understanding,

     Those who wish to learn about the principles and practices of assessment,  Those who need a nationally recognised qualification in assessment and need to meet the

    requirements of the NVQ Code of Practice and Sector Skills Councils’ assessment strategies.

    What do the qualifications cover? These qualifications cover all the essential knowledge and understanding that assessors or quality assurance staff need, plus one or more assessment routes that describe competent practice. Those new to assessment and hoping to become assessors can take the first assessment route and gain an understanding of assessment principles and practices even before they are in a position to practice assessment. When they are ready to practice they can attempt the additional assessment routes. Those who need to know about assessment, but never intend to practice – for example managers – are able to learn about essential principles and practices. Others who are in a position to carry out real assessments can undertake units at the same time and, in the spirit of holistic assessment, use evidence from one to meet some of the requirements of the other. The assessment routes are listed in Section 3 of this manual.

    2.1 Accreditation & Industry Support for these Qualifications These qualifications:

     Are accredited by Ofqual at level three,  Are supported by Lifelong Learning UK.

    2.2 Achievement of the Qualification/s & ‘Stand Alone Units’ The qualification/s will be gained when all the necessary units have been achieved. The centre will then be able to apply for the learner’s Award/Certificate. The learner will also receive a Certificate of Unit Credit, listing all the units they have achieved. However if they don’t manage to complete the full qualification learners can still claim a Certificate of Unit Credit for the units achieved therefore, they still have proof of their ability and could complete the qualification at a later date. Units can also be taken individually (stand alone). This manual must be used in conjunction with the delivery and assessment of any individual units to ensure that assessment requirements and methodologies are consistently applied.
