Assessing occupational and vocational competence is a critical role in education and training. Achieving this qualification will ensure quality assurance within the QCF assessment process. It involves supporting learners and assessing their work-based competence in order for them to achieve their qualification to their full potential.
The course will be delivered via workshops and 1-1 tutorials on a flexible basis to fit your needs. You will be allocated an Assessor who will provide guidance and support to enable you to collect evidence towards the completion of your qualification. Your Assessor will visit you in the workplace every three to four weeks and will ensure your evidence meets the national standard.
What are the benefits?
The qualification is made up of three units which consist of:
You will be assessed through the preparation of a portfolio of evidence to prove your abilities in assessing competence.
You will need to provide stationery.
Rhiannon Elliott has not looked back since embarking on the PGCE. Formal teacher training was critical for her role as a Travel and Tourism teacher at Derby College – and she feels particularly fortunate that she could achieve her ambitions through part-time study at the College itself.
She gained a nationally recognised qualification without having to move away from home. And so enjoyable was her learning experience that she has now begun studying for a Masters in Education with the University of Derby.
Derby College has offered me lots of support throughout my course. Sometimes working full time and studying can be quite challenging. However, the College has kept me on track and has been very open to helping me respond to any challenges. Reflecting on what I’ve learnt and how it has influenced my work is great.
