Types of information to give to learners in the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA)

Which information should you share in the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

What information do you need to make available to your learners? When teaching the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) we need to give information about the assessments themselves, potentially look at timescales and availability to carry out these assessments. Let’s start with the assessments themselves. Do your learners need any particular support to meet the assessment requirements? Will learners benefit from different assessment methods such as verbal over written assessments or practical assessments?

You might even give your learners the ability to choose themselves but give them restrictions. For example, during the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) you will devise your own assessments. However, you must ensure that you use observations, questioning and a witness statement. That is 3 of 4 assessment methods covered so learners now have the flexibility to pick the fourth assessment based on their preference. 

The role of stakeholders in the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

One of the most important considerations is to consult with stakeholders. Stakeholders are those that have an interest on the assessment so the first organisation to consider is the awarding body. Do you need written permission from them to change an assessment method? Let’s say if you are dyslexic, you are often granted additional time in an exam the assessor must seek permission first to do so otherwise results may be invalidated.  

Bilingualism in the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

If you live in Wales, you may wish to complete an assessment using the Welsh language. Allow bilingual learners the option to decide which languages they may want the assessment in if allowed. For example, the security industry requires all individuals in the sector to be able to read and write in English to deal with customers and prevent assaults therefore taking an assessment in a different language is not allowed so check the options available to you and seek permission. The last thing learners need is their certificate to be invalidated through a basic admin error.  

If you are assessing away from your training centre, you will be representing the company wherever you go. When I am assessing learners for the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA), I often go to employers’ workplaces, and I am representing the Education and Training Academy as I attend. The employer may not remember me, but they remember the company. The purpose is to give good impression of yourself and the organisation. Then we need to consider confidentiality, I have done assessments at the Ministry of Defence, I need to go through screening and then ensure that I keep information secret in line with the organisations confidentiality policy and also General Data Protection Regulations. 

Email in the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement

I always advise for our learners to use email communications to evidence them communicating with others as it’s the easiest to evidence, learners need to be careful about which information that they share. Are there personal details in these emails which may need to be blanked out? 

One question I normally get asked when learners sign up to the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is whether they need textbooks or other resources to help them with their studies. The answer is no. As a training provider, we believe we should be giving you the materials you need to complete your course and many others out there expect you to find other materials and pay for them yourself to complete your course. I disagree with this method but its something you need to think about. It’s always followed up with, where do I find this in the textbook? Ensure that learners know where to find the information. This is one of the reasons why our materials are displayed in a logical format.
