Student / Peer observation
As part of the course the student will be required to shadow an NVQ student whilst they carry out training activities. This will include assisting the NVQ student with whatever practical work they are carrying out, together with conducting a discussion with them based on a standard set of questions which are included in the Module text under section 1.
The shadow experience will assist the NVQ student by contributing to the evidence required under the following NVQ elements.
Element 5.1 AA1 range 2-B
Element 5.2 AA2 range 2-C
Element 5.3 AA1 range 1-C and 2-C
Element 6.1 AA1 range 1-A
Element 6.2 AA1 range 1-BC
Once the student has worked with the NVQ student they will be asked to write up a report of what they have done. They may wish to use this experience as a basis for group discussion.
It is essential to ensure that both students are aware of the responsibilities in terms of health and safety, and that adequate supervision is in place.
When the student has completed the course you will need to carry out an assessment of the candidate based on their:-
??? Knowledge and understanding of the subject
??? Practical skills (if applicable)
This will be applied to each module. If successful the candidate will be issued with a Course Certificate. The modules completed will be included on the certificate. An assessment form and guidance on procedures is provided in the support material.
