This Award is suitable for those teachers and trainers who carry out assessments on their students and need a formal recognised qualification in assessment. The Award is in two parts with the first being a taught Theory Unit which you will have to complete before you can move onto the Practical Unit. The Theory Unit is assessed through a series of written questions after each of the four sessions. For the Practical Unit you must have access to at least two students who are studying a qualification in which you are suitably qualified and experienced in to assess.
MidKent College will not find students for you to assess. You are responsible for sourcing your own candidates.

You must have access to two students that you can assess and a qualified IQA who can confirm your competency of assessment in the Practical Unit. You must have a relevant subject qualification and/or experience in the subject that you are assessing.
