Assessment


There are a total of 8 units that make up the total qualification: 7 of these units are internally assessed through a portfolio of evidence and 1 unit is externally assessed through a 1 hour written examination. The 7 internally assessed units will be assessed by qualified assessors at the centre using a variety of assessment methods, including essays, presentations, group activities, live observations and witness statements. Evidence for the portfolio will be collected throughout the course and the written examinations will take place at the end of the course. Exams will take place during normal classroom hours so it is essential that you make yourself available for the exam. We understand that life can happen so if you know you won’t be able to make the exam date then please let your teacher know as soon as possible. Additional fees may apply if you cannot do the exam on the allocated day and time. In order to achieve the full qualification, you must successfully complete all 8 units.
