The types of activities the assessor-candidate will be involved in include:

1 Preparing to assess
2 Planning assessments
3 Assessing candidate performance and knowledge
4 Confirming progression and achievement

To achieve this Unit the assessor-candidate must assess the competence of two candidates
on two occasions in their place of work using a set of standards such as those provided by a
national awarding/standard setting body or the candidates’ employer.

The assessor-candidate’s knowledge will be assessed by them taking part in a discussion
with their assessor, or answering questions (either written or oral), or providing a statement
of how and why they carried out certain activities, or a combination of these.

The assessor-candidate’s performance will be assessed by their assessor observing them
carrying out assessments and by looking at products of their work such as:

notes relating to pre-assessment planning discussions
assessment plans agreed with the candidates
records detailing assessment decisions
feedback records used to convey progression/achievement to the candidates
records of the standardisation activities the assessor-candidate has been involved in

The assessor will also observe the assessor-candidate assessing, giving feedback to at least
one of the candidates and reviewing progress.
