Step-by-step Process | Vocational Qualifications

  1. You decide which qualification you want to do in conjunction with us by selecting both the appropriate level and qualification.
  2. You follow a series of assessment plans that form your qualification. An assessment plan may cover one or more units across a range of assessment methods.
  3. You start the process of collecting evidence. Evidence is anything that you can use to demonstrate your competence in your work role. It is expected that you will provide a range of evidence types to support your demonstration of competence.
  4. You present your evidence for assessment. All your written evidence is presented on an e-portfolio and you can upload attachments such as samples of records, screen shots, photographs, video, audio recordings and witness testimonies.
  5. Your assessor approves your evidence. Your assessor will assess each activity you submit for assessment, map it to the units you are working towards and they will give you assessment feedback.
  6. Quality assurance - internal quality assurers review examples of assessment decisions and external quality assurers audit the whole process.
  7. Certification. Once the qualification is complete your certificate will be claimed from the Awarding Organisation.
