Level 3 Assessor Qualifications

Qualification information

The Level 3 Assessor Qualifications have been developed by Lifelong Learning UK and are the new QCF replacement for the A1 and A2 qualifications.

There are now four Assessor Qualifications which encourage progression, for instance the first Award is aimed at those who intend to gain an understanding of Assessing rather than practice as an Assessor.

Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment (QCF)

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment

Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment (QCF)

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
  • Assess occupational competence in the work environment

Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement (QCF)

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
  • Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (QCF)

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
  • Assess occupational competence in the work environment
  • Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

Assessment

Assessment is normally via a portfolio of evidence, assessed by your Approved Centre.  This ensures you minimise time away from work and that you undertake work study which is relevant to your own organisation’s context.

Progression

On successful completion of a Level 3 Assessor qualification, a number of progression opportunities become available:

  • Enhance your professional status by upgrading your CMI membership
  • Progress to other qualifications at the same level (e.g. from Level 3  Award to Level 3 Certificate)
  • Apply to become a Chartered Manager
