Self-assessment grids

These are templates (in Word) which contain all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for a particular unit. They are ideal as an initial assessment tool. They enable you to add your own statements to show what you already know or have achieved so far, and to identify what you need to do. If you don't have Microsoft Word, a free compatible program can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org

Price: 50p


Guidance for achieving the units 

These are completed examples of the self assessment grids. They give guidance as to the evidence which could be produced, and how to meet the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of a particular unit. The content must not be used by learners to complete assignments and is for guidance only. They are ideal to help assessors of the units standardise their practice, and to know what is expected from their learners.

They are in PDF format. A free PDF reader can be downloaded from Adobe.

Price: from £2.50


Assessment/Action plans 

These enable assessors to plan what will be assessed, when and how. 

The plans are templates and are in Word with a few suggested activities to help achieve the unit, which can be adapted to suit the assessment methods used, and to set target dates.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, a free compatible program can be downloaded here www.openoffice.org

Price: from £1.50


Information leaflets 

Each information leaflet is based on a particular topic.  

All information leaflets within a qualification's unit will briefly cover the content of the learning outcomes, and go over several pages. 

They can also be used by teachers to support the PowerPoint presentations, and by learners to gain information which contributes towards the learning outcomes and assessment criteria. 

They are in PDF format. A free PDF reader can be downloaded from Adobe.

Price: £1.50


Handouts, tables and checklists

These are for both teachers and learners and provide useful additional information to support each unit. 

They are in PDF format. A free PDF reader can be downloaded from Adobe.

Price: from 50p


Templates

These are for both teachers and learners. They are in Word enabling you to amend the content to suit your own requirements, for example adding your logo or changing the questions. 

Completed examples of each template are also available in PDF.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, a free compatible program can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org

Price: from 50p


PowerPoints

These are designed to be delivered in 2-4 hours (4-6 hours for the Diploma) depending upon your style of delivery and the number of activities you carry out with your learners (guidance is given within the presenter notes). 

All PowerPoints are cross referenced to the content of the unit's assessment criteria. 

Each comes with comprehensive slide presenter notes which includes information regarding the content, delivery and suggested activities. All end with a summary quiz, a reading list and weblinks. 

You are advised to check the content for currency as things change over time e.g. legislation/website links.

You can amend or update the content to suit your own requirements. For example, you could add your logo, graphics, pictures, and links to appropriate videos. Alternatively, you could adapt the text and presenter notes to become online learning materials.

The price is kept low due to graphics and animations not being included.

If you don't have Microsoft PowerPoint, a free compatible program can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org.
