This will include the demonstration of the application of knowledge.

Simulation is not allowed.

City & Guilds in partnership with ProSkills and other awarding organisations have identified the following main assessment methods which are suitable for this qualification:

  • direct observation of practice by a qualified assessor or by the expert witness for occupational specific units
  • examining the evidence by an assessor
  • questioning the candidate or witness by an assessor In some situations, the assessor can conduct a professional discussion with the candidate to provide evidence of the candidates performance and knowledge.

Evidence can:

  • reflect how the candidate carried out the process
  • be the product of a candidates work
  • be a product relating to the candidates competence.

For example, the process that the candidate carries out could be recorded in an observation or witness testimony. It is the assessors responsibility to make sure that the evidence a candidate submits for assessment meets the requirements of the qualification.

The product of a candidates work could be:

  • risk assessments carried out by the candidate
  • health and safety training devised and/or delivered by the candidate
  • results of health and safety inspections conducted by the candidate
  • results and findings of accident investigations carried out by the candidate.

These are examples of what a candidate may present -
