It provides recognition of the learners’ understanding of the principles and practices of assessment and their ability to assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in variety of sectors. Objectives of the qualification include: preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning and supporting a role in the workplace.
