Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (QCF) - CAVA
The Award is made up of 3 units:
Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment;
Assess Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding;
Assess Occupational Competence in the Work Environment.
A portfolio is provided to compile the qualification where both the underpinning knowledge and the practical skills of an Assessor are assessed.
Prior to registration, learners are required to be 18 years or over.
It is also recommended that learners have an appropriate vocational or competency-based qualification at least one level above the qualification they will be assessing.
To achieve the qualification, learners must have access to assessment opportunities in their own specialist area.
Once experience has been gained in assessment practice (suggested time period over 2 years) the Level 4 AIQA can be achieved to work within quality assurance.
Work within the UKCC structure working for National Governing Body or Centre for Sport, or within FE coordinating/assessing apprenticeship programmes.
