Some of our qualifications are assessed by a portfolio of evidence, which means the work can
be approached in whatever way is the most suitable for the learner, the assessor and the activity
being assessed. In some cases, written work is appropriate, however, there may be times when
observations or oral questioning is more fitting.
Each item of evidence must be appropriately mapped to the learning outcomes and the
assessment criteria within the units of the qualification. A portfolio of evidence is only complete
once every learning outcome and assessment criteria of the learner’s chosen units have been
met. All the units are outlined at the end of the relevant qualification specification document,
available for centres and learners to download and use directly from our website. It is advisable
for each assessor to use an evidence tracking sheet at the start of each learner’s portfolio of
evidence. This can be used to detail the units to be taken and each learning outcome and
assessment criteria. In this way, the assessor can track the evidence seen and ensure that all
assessment criteria have been covered off prior to submitting to the centre’s IQA.
