About the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA)

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is the qualification required by assessors in all areas of the QCF framework. It is best suited to complete during employment as you can use naturally occurring activities that you already do in your workplace to use towards your assessments. There are three mandatory units that you must complete including Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment; Assessing Occupational Competence in the Workplace; and Assessing Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding.

While completing the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA), learners are supported to build a portfolio of evidence, which includes examples of your own work, assessment plans, feedback, and questions about assessing and discussions with their assessor. One of the best things about the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is that there are no tests or examinations. You will be assigned a tutor who will guide you through the course and help you to plan your assessments and gives you feedback at every stage. T

Some assessors also teach childcare and education students. If you wanted to go down this route, then a teaching qualification such as the Level 3 Award in Education and Training or the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is required as well as the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA).
