If you are a centre and would like your learners to work through the modules instead of attending a course with you for the assessment qualification (at a discounted price) click here.
If you are an organisation and would like your staff to take the modules as CPD (at a discounted price) click here.
If you completed the D32/33 or A1/2 Assessment Award many years ago, and you need to demonstrate that you are now working at the current assessment qualification content, you can work through these modules and then complete a self-assessment grid as evidence of the current requirements.
You will receive a downloadable record of achievement upon completion.
The modules include text, animations (narrated by me), videos, free downloadable resources, activities, a quiz, and a reading & website list.
They will take approximately 1-3 hours each (depending upon the content and how fast you work).
The modules (listed below)
briefly cover all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of the three units in the Level 3 Assessment qualification. They are ideal to help you find out about an assessor role, update your assessment knowledge, or support you towards taking the assessment qualification.
You will have access to all the downloadable documents listed in the separate modules below.
