Lews Castle College Campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
The PDA in Workplace Assessment Using Direct and Indirect Methods will develop your knowledge and skills in preparing for, planning and carrying out assessment of individuals in the workplace.
You will use direct methods such as observation, examination of work products (both created and not created at the time of observation) and questioning. You may also be involved in authenticating indirect evidence such as discussion with candidates, testimony of others (witnesses), examination of candidate statements, assessment of candidates in simulated environments, recognition of prior learning (RPL), otherwise known as the accreditation of prior achievement (APA).
Students must be a workplace assessor, currently working with at least two VQ candidates.
This PDA will be studied as part of ongoing staff training to allow you to support staff studying on VQ programmes.
