Achieving this qualification

We recommend that learners complete the Assessor Training Workshop as a prerequisite. Once this is completed learners will receive an individual assessment plan to outline the evidence that is required to achieve the QCF unit: Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment and the named Award. The primary source of evidence will be a unit report to illustrate your understanding of the assessment criteria specified within the unit. 

Once completed your unit report will be assessed by one of our team of assessors. The assessment will determine if the evidence presented is relevant, reliable and sufficient to meet the requirements of the unit.
