Course description

Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA)

Accredited through Open College Network West Midlands (Distance learning and classroom)

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) has replaced two previous assessing qualifications: the A1 and A2. This is the qualification you need if you want to become an NVQ assessor - or any other sort of educational assessor. We offer this course in the classroom or as distance learning, so you can learn in a way that suits you!

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is perfect for learners who have already begun or are looking to begin a career in assessing. You’ll gain an understanding of the principles and practice of assessment, learn how to effectively assess learners’ occupational competence and make sound assessment decisions. We will ensure you are fully prepared for your role as an assessor. Interested in teaching as well? Combine this course with the Level 3 Award in Education and Training and save over £100

What do I need if I want to do this course? 

It’s important that you’re occupationally competent in the area you’d like to assess, which means that if you want to assess retail NVQs, you’ll need to have worked in retail within the last 10 years. You also need to be already working with at least one learner because we will need to observe you in the workplace with them. We can give you advice and guidance if you’re not sure about either of these elements and, if you are able to travel to Worcester or Birmingham, we may be able to provide learners for you. Please speak to us before signing up if you need help finding learners to work with. 

Course delivery details

How much time will it take?

Classroom option: we will meet for four full days in the classroom then we will observe you in the workplace on two or more occasions. Observations should take no more than an hour on each occasion. The classroom sessions can take place in a variety of ways: four days back to back; over the course of two weekends; once a week for 4 weeks… speak to us about your requirements.

My tutor worked with my learning style to help me enjoy the process of getting qualified as an assessor.
The workbook was comprehensive yet written in a way that wasn't overwhelming.
