NOCN Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (QCF)
The NOCN Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (QCF) will be appropriate for those whose role involves the assessment of both occupational competence and vocationally related achievement.

The ILM Associates Assessor course has been designed to train you in the practical skills needed to support and assess candidates completing vocational courses such as NVQ’s and Apprenticeships. There are NO tests or exams you must pass to become an Assessor, instead you are supported to build a portfolio of evidence including examples of your candidates work, assessment plans, your feedback to candidates, questions about assessing and discussions with your assessor. We allocate you with a mentor who guides you through the course, providing feedback at every stage. You may have heard of the A1 Assessors Award? Well the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement replaced this in September 2010 and covers all QCF qualifications.

Topics covered include knowledge of the QCF Framework, good and bad assessing, assessment planning, feedback, rules and regulations and roles and responsibilities. The course is completed entirely at your own pace so don’t worry if some days you’re a bit busy; your mentor is there to keep you on track!

“ILM Associates provide a significant amount of practical and training support to trainees and the quality of candidate work demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of assessing vocational achievement”
There are three units to complete; each carries a number of credits. You do not need to complete all units, but we recommend that you do complete them all to ensure you are fully qualified:
Unit 1: Understanding the principles and practices of assessment (3 credits) - does not require practical
Unit 2: Assess Occupational Competence in the work environment (6 credits) - requires practical
Unit 3: Assess Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding (6 credits) - requires practical

The first module is based and assessed by questions. Once you have completed all the modules for each of the other 2 units, you will then complete practical sessions with real life candidates, fully supported by your mentor. This will involve planning with learners work to complete, giving them feedback, carrying out observations, setting questions and assignments and helping them gather evidence that meets the required standards.
When you feel confident with your candidates, your mentor will carry out a series of observations and discussions with you to ensure your assessing practice and knowledge meets the required standard. This is not a pass/fail exercise so if you do not meet the standards, your personal mentor will explain why and reassess you until you are! At ILM we want you to be successful and support all learners until you are fully competent.
