Course delivery details

Candidates have to collect a portfolio of evidence. Assessment consists of both performance and knowledge evidence. Performance evidence is through direct observation of the candidate, products or outcomes of the candidate’s work, such as items that have been produced or worked on.

Evidence can also take the form of witness statements, assessor observations or authenticated reports, records or photographs of the work or activity.

Candidates should be capable of combining the various features and techniques to be successful in the assessment.

Where the candidate’s knowledge and understanding (and the handling of contingency situations) is not apparent from performance evidence, it will be assessed by oral questioning and/or written questions and answers and practical demonstrations.

Functional Skills Maths & English will be assessed through exams.
