QCF-NVQ Model Portofolios

Introduction

This is a recording system which contains a flexible qualification plan; detailed, but user-friendly evidence referencing checklists and all documentation and structure to meet the requirements of the Assessor Award and Awarding Organisation (Cskills Awards). These portfolios may also be used electronically for Centres moving away from paper-based systems.

For Centres who purchase the portfolios for two or more occupations, Ann Cook will deliver (as part of the purchase price) a 3-hour session to the Assessment Teams who will be using the portfolios to assist them to maximise their use of the documents. Included in the session will be a practical activity to help familiarise the staff with the documents, and their use. A certificate will be issued to the Centre to confirm that a Standardisation Activity, directly relating to the implementation of the portfolio documentation, has taken place.
