Do you need a qualification to enable you to assess competence, vocational skills and knowledge in a work environment? Or perhaps you want to gain knowledge about the assessment process but are not in a position to practice yet. We can help.
Our Level 3 qualifications are perfect for anyone wanting to progress into a career as a qualified assessor. For many, the most popular option from the list below is the full Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) qualification. The qualification is transferable across any sector that you, as the assessor, hold occupational competence in.
The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is a nationally recognised qualification and is routinely sought after by awarding bodies as the benchmark for best practice in assessing. This qualification has replaced the old A1/A2 and D32/D33 assessor qualifications.
There are three individual Award level units in the CAVA suite and when you combine all three Awards, you gain the full Level 3 CAVA qualification, deeming you a qualified Assessor. City & Guilds have long been at the forefront of education and training and Fresh Management Solutions is approved to deliver the units in the Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) suite.
These units are:
Studying for the qualification will enable you to build in-depth knowledge of assessing, covering key topics such as the principles and practices of assessment, how to plan and implement a variety of appropriate assessment methods to include vocational skills, workplace competence, knowledge and understanding.
You will learn the importance of ongoing quality assurance in assessment processes through accurate recording of assessment judgements and standardisation, key legal and good practice requirements, as well as health & safety and equality, diversity and inclusion practices, and student welfare.
To secure the knowledge element of the qualification, we deliver a three-day workshop to cover all aspects in an enjoyable and rewarding way as part of a small group of learners.
There are lots of practical activities to make the underpinning knowledge you need to acquire, more tangible and memorable. We will share our breadth of knowledge and experience of assessment with you so that you will leave with a sound understanding of the topic. At the end of the delivery, the successful completion of one written and one practical assignment will complete the unit.
If appropriate and desirable, you will then proceed to the other Award units. Completion of these takes the form of a portfolio of evidence for you to demonstrate your competency-based evidence of assessing in your own workplace. This includes personal reflections, product evidence, evidence of all aspects of assessment from planning through to feedback, and last but not least, observations of you assessing your learners.
We allow 9 months for you to complete this qualification but you may complete earlier as evidence and opportunities allow. There are a few practical requirements to highlight:
We will be pleased to discuss these and any questions you may have about our qualification courses.
We are an Approved Centre for City & Guilds professional qualifications. Successful completion of our course will lead to a Certificate from the City & Guilds.
