Assessment

Assessment for this qualification is by portfolio. It must be in accordance with the Lifelong Learning UK Assessment Strategy (see Appendix A of this document).

There is no requirement for each unit to be assessed separately. Assessors are advised to adopt a holistic approach and, where possible, to use one activity as evidence for learning outcomes and assessment criteria for both units. For example, a discussion for ‘Internally assure the quality of assessment’ might provide some evidence for ‘Understanding the principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment’. In the same way, some evidence from ‘Internally assure the quality of assessment’ could be used for ‘Plan, allocate and monitor work in own area of responsibility’. However, it is essential that evidence for the assessment criteria in each unit is also identified individually.

A Qualification Achievement Record for this qualification which includes the forms necessary to map and claim competence is available to download from the IQ website.
