A1/A2 and V1 Awards

With the growth of National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs), more and more organisations are finding it convenient and economical, as well as motivating for their staff to have a trained NVQ assessor on site. The A1 and A2 awards enable staff to assess NVQs in the workplace. The awards are units from the Learning & Development national occupational standards at level 3.
These awards can be delivered to groups or on a one to one basis. Initially, candidates for the A1 and A2 awards will attend an induction workshop(s) covering the following areas:

  • An overview of NVQs
  • The role of the assessor
  • Assessment planning
  • Assessment methods
  • Recording assessment
  • Delivering Feedback
  • Quality assurance

These are work based qualifications that require evidence produced from real work activities.
