Health and Health & Social Care Assessment Principles

 

Centre staff should have verifiable relevant experience and current knowledge of the occupational working area at, or above, the level they are assessing or verifying. This experience and knowledge must be of sufficient depth to be effective and reliable when judging learner competence or verifying assessment processes and decisions. This could be verified by:

 

• curriculum vitae and references
• possession of a relevant qualification
• records of continuous professional development
• corporate membership of a relevant professional institution

 

Centre staff may undertake more than one role, e.g. tutor and assessor or internal verifier, but must never internally verify their own assessments.

 

With regard to the competency requirements for assessment and internal verification of these qualifications, Centres should refer to the specific qualification handbook for details of the relevant qualifications that should be held by those assessing and internally verifying.

 

Skillsfirst would like to remind centres that it is their responsibility to familiarise themselves with the SSC's assessment principles.
