Course Assessment

These qualifications are assessed through activities, which are developed by the Centre, internally marked and sampled as part of quality assurance/ internal verification procedures.

There must be evidence of the trainee assessor carrying out at least two assessments of two learners (four assessments in total). This occupational competence must not be in assessment itself. In other words, evidence for this unit must not come from the trainee assessing another trainee assessor who, in turn, is assessing someone else. In gathering evidence for these qualifications, an unqualified trainee assessor is not allowed to assess competence in another unqualified assessor.

The aim of this unit is to assess the trainee assessor’s knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices that underpin assessment.
All learning outcomes in this unit must be assessed using methods appropriate to the assessment of knowledge and understanding.
There must be valid, authentic and sufficient evidence for all the assessment criteria. However, one piece of evidence may be used to meet the requirements of more than one learning outcome or assessment criterion.

What our customers say...

Feedback is very important to us. Here are some of our customer’s testimonials.

  • "Good morning, I am a Cpl of the Royal Air Force Fire Service and I was passed your name to send my kindest regards and complements referencing one of your tutors, Mary Matthews. I have recently completed and passed my Level 3 AET with BBE with the unquestionable assistance of Mary. I had to complete this course whilst deployed on a 4 month tour to the Falkland Islands working 24 hours on 24 hours off for the entire period. unfortunately the Falkland Islands are not up to the British standards when it comes to mobile phones or internet along with the restricted internet access when using military computer, Which made completing my course extremely difficult in regards to accessing BBE’s web page and downloading the course content. Thankfully I was assigned Mary, her professionalism and passion to ensure I had all the assistance needed was next to non! As I am dyslexic Mary went through all the course work with me and made templates of a learner plans. Mary informed me that I could contact her out of hours as there was a 4 hour time difference, also as I was unable to access the BBE website Mary sent me all the course content along with uploading it onto the BBE site for me. I don’t think that I would of passed the course without her high calibre professionalism with all areas of her job.   In conclusion I am highly impressed with the help I received from Mary and I will be highly recommending BBE course solely on her actions"
