If you would like to take your first steps to becoming either a vocational or a work based assessor, then learn with Carl Bromilow as he takes you through a unique journey in achieving the Qualifications Network (QNUK) Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practice of Assessment, through a series of webinars and personal support.

The pre-recorded webinars will be broken down into 3 bite sized sessions and you will be tasked with completing small activities prior to the following session, to complete your written assessment as you go.

You will have access to 3 pre-recorded webinars that will last approximately two hours. On these webinars Carl will take you through the learning outcomes of the assessor knowledge qualification, using real life experiences to help you relate what is being delivered to the role of an assessor. Carl will also share good practice and will provide tips on becoming an assessorFollowing each webinar, you will be tasked with completing the relevant questions of the written assessment (worksheet) that directly related to the content of that webinar, therefore following the third webinar you should be in a position to submit your assessment.

Frequently asked questions

Is the Assessor knowledge unit a qualification in its own right and who are the awarding organisation?

Yes, the Assessor knowledge unit is a qualification in its own right. It is a nationally recognised QCF qualification and sits on the register of regulated qualifications as the Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment, and is worth 3 credits. The AO for this qualification is Qualifications Network (www.qualifications-network.co.uk).

Will the QNUK Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment, qualify me to become an assessor?

No it won’t, however it will certainly give you a fantastic insight to the role of the assessor and assessment practice in general. This qualification provides the first unit of the following qualifications:

Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement
Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment
Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

You must be working for a training provider and have access to at least two learners in order to achieve one of the full assessor qualifications.

Who is the qualification for and are there any pre-requisites?

This qualification is intended for those who wish to gain an understanding of the principles and practices of assessment without any requirement to practise as assessors.

There are no set pre-requisites for this qualification, however you must be able to demonstrate a good level of literacy and numeracy.

How is the assessor knowledge qualification assessed?

You will be required to complete a written assessment in the form of a worksheet. Once you have completed all of the worksheet, then you will be required to submit this to CBC&T for assessment. The pass mark for the worksheet is 100% and on achievement of this, your worksheet may be subject to internal quality assurance. If you progress onto either the Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement or Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment, then the second unit will require you to have access to at least two learners and you will be required to gather performance based evidence from your role as an assessor.

When will the Assessor webinar programme start and how long does it last for?

The Assessor webinar programme enrols learners all year round, so the start date is when you would like to commence the assessor webinar programme with CBC&T.
