How you will Learn The award is based on the assessment of actual work-based performance. The bulk of your learning will therefore be in the workplace, but training and support will be provided to ensure that you are meeting the required standard. You will work on a one-to-one basis with your Assessor, who will arrange meetings to meet your needs and the needs of your employer. You will be using an electronic learning platform to submit your work.
How you will be Assessed You will be allocated a workplace assessor who will develop an individual learning plan and will guide you to develop an electronic portfolio of evidence to meet the learning outcomes.
Entry Requirements There are no formal entry requirements except a college interview, and you must be at least 16 years of age. However, since this qualification is assessed in the workplace, you need a job or work placement which offers you suitable experience and the chance to demonstrate the necessary skills. Basic computer skills are essential.
Attendance Expectations Your assessor will need to meet with you regularly to monitor your progress and to plan your assessment sessions. These meetings can take place either at your workplace or college.
