We will provide you with an induction and several 1:1 meeting at the start of the programme, this will aid your knowledge and understanding to complete the first unit of the qualification, which is a knowledge unit. You will then have meetings and be assessed on a 1:1 basis whilst you build your portfolio of evidence; this will include at least four observations from your assessor, whilst you are assessing your learners – these will be planned beforehand. The Centre you are working or volunteering for will need to provide you with sufficient guidance and support in the use of qualification standards; planning records; assessment records and any other documentation that they expect you to complete. They will allocate at least two candidates per qualification to you. You will assess complete assessment decisions using a range of assessment methods, dependent upon the assessment strategy of the qualification. They will allocate you with a countersigning assessor who will countersign your assessment decisions until you are qualified; an Internal Quality Assurer, who will induct you into the Centre's processes. You will be part of the quality assurance systems within the Centre, including attending standardisation meetings. You will need to demonstrate that you have taken part in appropriate CPD activities for your own development.
