Course description

Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) (RQF) Level 3

If you are interested in a career of helping others to achieve their full potential, by offering assessment and feedback, the Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement is the right course for you.

This Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is the new RQF qualification (500/9758/1) which replaces the old A1\2 and D32\33 assessor qualification.

Also known as a TAQA qualification (that stands for Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance), it is part of a category of quality assurance qualifications.

Beyond understanding what an assessment is and how to plan for one, this course will also help you learn how to practically carry out an evaluation, how to manage information, offer feedback in the follow-up, while observing legal and regulatory requirements.
