How is this qualification assessed?

Performance evidence must be a product of the Apprentices work, such as items that have been produced or worked on, plans, charts, reports, standard operating procedures, documents produced as part of a work activity, records or photographs of the completed activity. Together with evidence of the way the Apprentice carried out the activities, such as witness testimonies, assessor observations or authenticated Apprentice reports of the activity undertaken.

Knowledge and understanding are key components of competent performance, but it is unlikely that performance evidence alone will provide enough evidence in this area. Where the Apprentices knowledge and understanding is not apparent from performance evidence, it must be assessed by other means and be supported by suitable evidence.
