Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (QCF) The NVQ Assessor qualification changed in 2011/12 from the NVQ Assessor A1 Award to the QCF (NVQ) Level 3 Assessor Certificate (or Award). This change occurred in 2012 because all NVQs were ‘migrated’ into the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF). This course is for people who are, or who would like to be NVQ Assessors. It is a professional qualification.  The course allows you to become an NVQ Assessor in your existing workplace or can help you gain employment as an Assessor. The qualification consists of three units Unit 1: Understanding the principles and practices of assessment – This is a theory-based unit. Unit 2: Assess Occupational Competence in the work environment – This is a practical unit. Unit 3: Assess Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding – This is a practical unit. This qualification course is suitable for anyone already qualified in Beauty Therapy, Holistic therapies or Sports Therapy with relevant industrial experience who wants to use their skills to assess. We do not have set start dates but instead work out a plan tailored to fit around your work commitments.
