How Will I Be Assessed
A candidate assessor will need to assess a minimum of two candidates. It is the responsibility of the candidate assessor to locate these candidates. All candidate assessors must have the support of an occupationally competent and qualified assessor who will be responsible for countersigning all decisions made by the candidate assessor. Please note that the college does not provide for these requirements.
This course requires candidates to hold GCSEs in English and maths at grade C / 4, or an equivalent (e.g. Functional Skills Level 2).
