4 Section 1 General information about the qualifications Introducing the Qualifications and Credit Framework () qualifications The Qualifications and Credit Framework () is the new framework for creating and accrediting qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. s form the building blocks of all qualifications in the. How does it work? Every qualification in the is made up of s. Each has a credit value that tells you roughly how long it takes to complete one credit represents about 10 hours work. Each and qualification also has its own Level, between Entry Level and Level 8, to show how difficult it is. The names of all the qualifications in the are set out the same and tell you three things how difficult it is, how long it takes and what it s about. The Level shows how difficult the qualification is. There are nine Levels in the, from Entry Level to Level 8. Next is the size that s how long the qualification takes to complete. Every qualification in the comes in one of three sizes Award, Certificate or Diploma. Awards are made up of 1 to 12 credits (or 10 to 120 hours learning), Certificates 13 to 36 credits (130 to 360 hours learning) and Diplomas 37 credits or more (370 or more hours learning). Finally the content that s what it s about could be retail, or leadership, or maybe sport. Here are two examples of qualification titles, showing how the three parts fit together: Level 1 Certificate In Sport and Active Leisure Level 8 Award In Strategic Direction and Leadership So if you were doing the Level 1 Certificate in Sport and Active Leisure, you could include a on how the body works, which has a credit value of four. This would take you 40 hours to complete. The recognises small steps of learning and enables you to build up your learning at your own pace and put them towards a full qualification. You can bank all your achievements over time so you don t have to study anything you already know and all your learning will be stored in your own personal learning record that you can build up as you progress. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 1

5 Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) The Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) are qualifications which assess the skills and knowledge people have and need to perform their job role effectively. The qualifications are designed using National Occupational Standards. For each industry sector there is a Sector Skills Council (SSC) which is made up of representatives from the industry or profession and it is the SSC s responsibility to develop the National Occupational Standards. These standards define what employees, or potential employees, must be able to do, how well and in what circumstances to show they are competent in their work. The Sector Skills Council for the Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) is CITB. Access to the Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) is open to all and you can be assessed either against particular (s) or against the full qualification. There are no entry requirements, no prescribed method of delivery, and no time constraints for completion or age limits. Who offers qualifications? An organisation which offers qualifications is called a centre. This may be a college, university, employer, training provider or a combination of these. The centre has responsibility for the quality of the qualification and is required to work within an awarding body s policies and guidelines. The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is your awarding body for the Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction). This means that we are an organisation approved by government to design qualifications and awards. An awarding body endorses learners certificates so that an employer can be sure the qualification has gone through a rigorous and effective assessment process. SQA provides qualifications throughout the world. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 2

6 How are s defined in qualifications? Each in the has a common format. The main components of the are: Title Level Credit value Learning Outcome Assessment Criteria The title describes the content of the learning. All s must identify a single Level for the that represents the complexity, autonomy and/or range of achievement expressed within the. All s must have a credit value. One credit equals 10 hours of learning. Learning time is defined as the time taken by learners at the Level of the, on average, to complete the Learning Outcomes of the to the standard determined by the Assessment Criteria. All s must contain Learning Outcomes that set out what a learner is expected to know, understand or be able to do as the result of a process of learning. All s must contain Assessment Criteria that specify the standard a learner is expected to meet to demonstrate that the Learning Outcomes of that have been achieved.

10 How are qualifications achieved? When you consistently meet the skills or knowledge and understanding described in the Learning Outcomes and show you have met the Assessment Criteria, you can then claim that you are competent in each. You can claim certification for single s or whole awards. Your centre will register your claim to competence through the awarding body. The awarding body you are registered with for this qualification is the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). Scottish Qualifications Authority The Optima Building 58 Robertson Street Glasgow G2 8DQ The process of gaining a qualification is flexible and depends on your needs. At the beginning of the process your assessor will review your existing competence in relation to the standards and identify the most suitable qualification. The level you start at will depend on the type and breadth of your current job role together with your past experience, skills and any relevant prior learning. To achieve a, you must: Demonstrate you meet the requirements of the by achieving all the Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria by collecting appropriate evidence to meet all Assessment Criteria. This evidence is assessed against the requirements of the by a qualified assessor. This will usually be someone who knows you, such as a manager or supervisor. Evidence may come from: the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) where evidence relates to past experience or achievements current practice where evidence is generated from a current job role a programme of development where evidence comes from assessment opportunities built into a learning/training programme whether at or away from the workplace a combination of these Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 7

11 How are qualifications assessed? Assessment is based on what you can do and involves you, your assessor, an internal verifier and an External Verifier see Who does what in qualifications on the following page. Assessment is flexible and you can be certificated for each you successfully achieve, even if you do not complete the full qualification. There is no set period of time in which you need to complete a. However, you and your assessor should still set target dates for completing each, otherwise your qualification could go on forever. Be realistic though, as there are many factors such as your previous experience, demands within your workplace and an availability of resources which will affect how quickly you are able to achieve the qualification. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 8

12 Who does what in qualifications? A of individuals and organisations have parts to play in the assessment. Their roles have been designed to guarantee fair, accurate and consistent assessment. Learners Assessors Internal verifiers Approved centres External Verifiers Who are they? The person who wants to achieve the qualification in this case, you. An experienced person in the same area of work as the learner, eg supervisor. Individuals appointed by an approved centre to ensure the quality of assessment within the centre. Organisations approved by awarding bodies to coordinate assessment arrangements for the qualifications. Individuals appointed by the awarding body to ensure that standards are being applied uniformly and consistently across all centres offering the qualifications. What is their role? Need to show they can perform to Assessment Criteria in order to be awarded a (s) or full qualification. Judge the evidence of a learner s performance and knowledge and understanding against the s. Decide whether the learner has demonstrated competence. Provide guidance and support to the learner. Assist with planning assessments, giving feedback and recording learner progress. Advise assessors and maintain the quality of assessment in a centre. Systematically sample assessments to confirm the quality and consistency of assessment decisions. Manage assessment on a day-to-day basis. Must have effective assessment practices and internal verification procedures. Must meet criteria laid down by awarding bodies and be able to provide sufficiently competent assessors and internal verifiers. Check the quality and consistency of assessments, both within and between centres, by systematic sampling. Make regular visits to centres to ensure they still meet the criteria to deliver the qualifications. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 9

13 What is evidence? To claim competence for a you need to gather evidence which shows you have met the standards. It is important that your evidence is easily understood so that it can be checked against the standards, by your assessor, your centre and the awarding body. Evidence can take many forms including: direct observation of your performance by your assessor products of your work authenticated statement witness testimony personal statement outcomes from questioning outcomes from simulation case studies assignments or projects Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) evidence from the past It is important that your evidence is: valid it relates to the qualification standard you are trying to prove authentic the evidence, or an identified part of it (eg a report) was produced by you consistent achieved on more than one occasion current usually not more than two years old sufficient covers all the performance and knowledge requirements laid down in the standards Your evidence may be collected through a range of sources, such as employment, voluntary work, training programmes and interests/activities which you perform outside your work. It can also be produced in various formats. For example your own reports, testimonies from colleagues, supervisors or members of the public, projects, models, audio tapes, photographs, videos. When you first begin your qualification, you and your assessor should identify all the s and Learning Outcomes and where you can use integration of assessment. Further details about integration of assessment can be found on page 13. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 10

14 Demonstrating knowledge, understanding and skills In order to meet the, you may also be required to prove knowledge and understanding. Some SSCs, have split the skills and knowledge into separate s while others have retained s which cover both skills and knowledge. Evidence of how the knowledge has been achieved and applied could be included in the performance evidence as one or all of the following: descriptions of why a particular approach was used personal reports about the learning process reflective reports which include how a theory or principle was applied assessment interviews assessment tests responses to questioning These should be included in your portfolio. How will my assessor check I have the knowledge and understanding listed in the standards? For some s, it will be clear to your assessor that you have the required knowledge and understanding from how you carry out your work. This is often referred to as knowledge and understanding apparent from performance. There will be other occasions though, when your assessor will be unsure if you know why, for example, it is important to give information to clients in certain situations. This could be because your assessor has not had the opportunity to observe all the Assessment Criteria during assessment. In these situations, your assessor may wish to assess your knowledge and understanding by asking you some questions. These questions can be given orally or in writing, but will be recorded in your portfolio as evidence. Your assessor could also check you have the required level of knowledge and understanding by asking you to produce personal statements or to complete a project or assignment. What if I have previous experience and knowledge and understanding from work and other qualifications? If you have previous work experience, skills, and knowledge and understanding which you feel is relevant to your qualification, you should tell your assessor about it. Your assessor may ask you for more proof in the form of letters from previous employers/training providers or details about any courses you have completed. The process of matching your previous experience and learning is often referred to as the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). The purpose of this process is to try and give you some credit towards your qualification for things you can already do. Your assessor judges the evidence available and matches it against the requirements of the qualification you are undertaking. This means that your assessor should not have to assess you for these things all over again. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 11

15 However, the success of this process depends on you telling your assessor what previous work experience or knowledge and understanding you have and how you think it is relevant to your qualification. The more information you can supply to support your claims, the easier it should be to convince your assessor that you are competent. There are some instances when previous learning and experience may not be used for Recognition of Prior Learning. These include: exemptions outlined in the Rules of Combination in the Qualifications and Credit Framework s and Group Awards where there are: existing requirements for a licence to practice specific health and safety requirements regulated professional requirements specific components of a programme of study which require placements within a given setting Your assessor will be able to advise you. When can simulation be used? Throughout your qualification, the emphasis is on you being able to carry out real work activities so assessment will normally be carried out in the workplace itself. There may be times, however, when it might not be appropriate for you to be assessed while you are working. For example your qualification might require you to carry out emergency or contingency procedures (for safety or confidentiality reasons) or your job role may not cover all aspects of the qualification. In such instances, when you have no other means of generating evidence, simulation might be appropriate. Simulation is any structured exercise involving a specific task which reproduces real-life situations. Care must be taken though to ensure that the conditions in which you are assessed exactly mirror the work environment, ie it is a realistic working environment. Your assessor will be able to advise what constitutes a realistic working environment in relation to this qualification. This information is contained in the Assessment Guidance. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 12

16 Integration of assessment It is not necessary for you to have each Learning Outcome assessed separately doing so could result in assessment which takes too long and places too great a burden on you and your assessor. There will be instances when you will be able to use one piece of evidence to prove your competence across different Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria. You may even find that evidence is relevant for different s this is called integration of assessment. When you first begin your qualification, you and your assessor will spend time looking at the standards, planning how much time you are both able to devote to the qualification and drawing up an action plan. At this stage, you should identify any activities which relate to more than one or Learning Outcome and arrange for the best way to collect a single piece of evidence which satisfactorily covers all the Assessment Criteria. If you are going to integrate assessments, make sure that the evidence is crossreferenced to the relevant s. Details of how to cross reference your evidence can be found in Section 2 How to compile your portfolio. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 13

17 Section 2 How to compile your portfolio General information A portfolio, like a log book, is a way of recording evidence of your achievements. It is a collection of different items of evidence which indicates that you have the required skills, knowledge and understanding to support your claim to a qualification. The production of a well organised, clearly labelled portfolio which relates each piece of evidence to the relevant Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria requires a careful methodical approach. When your assessor looks through your portfolio, they will find the task of making judgements about your competence much easier if the information in it is presented in a logical sequence. You will need to present your evidence in a format that is easy to read and in which materials can be added or taken away. This section gives suggestions on how to lay out and present your evidence. There are also forms and matrices which will assist you to chart your progress through the award. You do not have to lay out your evidence in the way suggested but you may find it helpful to do so. Each portfolio will be different in content but all should include information about you (the learner), the organisation where you are undertaking your qualification, the assessor and so on. Evidence Collection Process What? Assessment plan Collect evidence Present evidence Reference acceptable evidence Record evidence in Learning Outcome Achievement Record Store evidence in portfolio Who? You and your assessor You and your assessor if observation/questioning is required You and your assessor Assessor will judge evidence and give you feedback on which evidence meets the standards You You Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 14

18 Planning your portfolio Start by carefully reading through the s making up the qualification and, together with your assessor, decide which s you might like to work on first. You do not have to do the s in order. There may be some s that relate to tasks which you carry out on a regular basis, therefore making it easier to collect evidence right away. Alternatively, there may be activities in other s which you only undertake now and again, these can be left until the opportunity arises for you to collect evidence. Before you start looking for different kinds of evidence and deciding if they should be included in your portfolio, you will find it helpful to plan how you will carry out the tasks and how long they are going to take. The plan is usually referred to as an assessment plan. It should be produced in discussion with your assessor and will set out the different stages in developing your portfolio. You will probably want to produce a plan for each. It is unlikely that you will be able to complete all of the s straightaway and you should therefore think about starting with those s where you have a lot of experience and in which you work well. You should also remember to identify any opportunities for integration of assessment. We have provided you with a progress record see Example 2. At this stage, it might be a good idea to check that all your evidence and recording documents have been completed correctly and can easily be located. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 15

19 Starting your portfolio Make sure that you clearly label your portfolio with your name together with the title and Level of the award. Your portfolio will need a title page and a contents page. You should also complete a Personal Profile which records details about yourself and your job as well as providing information about your employer, training provider or college. Blank samples of these forms are provided in Section 4. We recommend that you compile your portfolio in the following order: Title page Contents checklist Personal profile progress record Completed Learning Outcome Achievement Records Index of evidence Pieces of evidence Glossary of terms Standards Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 16

20 Contents checklist You might also find it useful to complete the following checklist as you work your way through your portfolio. This will help you to see if you have included all the relevant items. Once you have completed your portfolio, you will be able to use this checklist again as a contents page, by inserting the relevant page or section s in the right hand column. Section Title page for the portfolio Completed Page/Section Personal profile Your own personal details A brief CV or career profile A description of your job Information about your employer/training provider/college Assessment Plans progress record Completed Learning Outcome Achievement Records for each Signed by yourself, your assessor and the internal verifier (where relevant) Evidence reference s included Index of evidence (with cross-referencing information completed) Evidence (with reference s) Observation records Details of witnesses (witness testimony sheets) Personal statements Products of performance Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 17

21 Collecting your evidence All of the evidence which you collect and present for assessment must be relevant to your SVQ. Your assessor will help you choose which pieces of evidence you should include. We have provided blank forms in Section 4 of this document, which you can photocopy to help you record and present your evidence. Although we have provided you with sample forms, your centre may have their own recording documents which they would prefer you to use. Some of these forms, eg observation records and the record of questions and answers will be completed by your assessor. Other forms (witness testimonies) will be used by people other than your assessor to testify that they have observed you doing your job, and there is one for you to complete called a personal statement. Explanations are given below about how and when these forms should be used. How to complete the index of evidence Example 1 You should complete an index of evidence sheet and file it immediately before the actual pieces of evidence in your portfolio. The index of evidence should be completed by entering: the index for each piece of evidence a description of each piece of evidence the place or location where it can be found the initials of the internal verifier and the date (if they have sampled the learner s evidence) Progress Record Example 2 The progress record is used by your assessor and each time you complete a, your assessor should sign and date the relevant section on the form. You can circle the reference of the in the checkboxes at the top of the form so that you can see at a glance what stage you are at in your qualification. You must make sure that the information contained in the evidence index is accurate when you give your portfolio to your assessor, particularly in relation to where the evidence can be located. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 18

22 Completing the Learning Outcome Achievement Records Example 3 There is a Learning Outcome Achievement Record for every Learning Outcome within this portfolio. These records have been designed to allow you to record the evidence you have gathered for each Learning Outcome. Each record has boxes across it which represents the Assessment Criteria and Assessment Requirements. Whilst collecting your evidence you should use these grids to display the Assessment Criteria and Assessment Requirement that piece of evidence relates to. In the first box write the evidence index you have given to that piece of evidence. In the second box give a brief description of the evidence, then tick against the relevant Assessment Criteria. Personal statement Example 4 There will be times when you need to put a piece of your evidence in context for your assessor so that they can decide if it is relevant to your qualification. You can complete personal statements to help you do this these can relate either to the pieces of evidence or to each Learning Outcome or. For example, you may refer to paperwork which is often used in your organisation to help you pass on information to a colleague. It may not be clear to an assessor why you are communicating to your colleague in this way and a brief explanation of the paperwork and why it is relevant to a particular part of your qualification may be required. A personal statement might also be used to record your experience of something, such as, how you handled a specific situation. This can be documented in your personal statement and should be a description of what you did, how you did it and why you did it. It will also allow you to include the people who were present and either assisted you or witnessed your actions. This, in turn, might identify who you should approach for witness testimony. In your personal statement you could also refer to product evidence that you have produced (eg reports, notes, completed forms), these can also be included as evidence in your portfolio. The personal statement can be a piece of evidence in itself and should therefore be included in your portfolio. Observation record Example 5 The observation record is used by your assessor to record what tasks you have performed and to what standard. There is also a section for your assessor to note which other s or Learning Outcomes are covered by this evidence ( integration of assessment ). Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 19

23 The assessor will discuss with you which Assessment Criteria you have successfully achieved and give you feedback. This form should then be given a reference and included in your portfolio as part of your evidence. Witness testimony Example 6 There may be occasions when your assessor is not available to observe you carrying out certain aspects of your job. In such instances, it may be appropriate for another person to comment about your performance by completing a statement called a witness testimony. Witness testimony should only be used as supporting evidence and should: be provided by a person, not related to you, who is in a position to make a valid comment about your performance, eg supervisor, line manager or possibly a client/customer contain comments which specifically relate your performance to the standards be authenticated by the inclusion of the witness s signature, role, address, telephone and the date It is unlikely that your assessor would make an assessment decision based on witness testimony alone. They would normally supplement this type of evidence with questioning. Record of questions and learner s answers Example 7 This form is used to record any questions which your assessor may ask, to establish whether you have the required level of knowledge and understanding associated with each. There is also space on the form for your answers to be noted. Learner Guidance and Portfolio for the qualifications: Level 6 NVQ Diplomas in Construction Site Management (Construction) 20

24 Presenting your evidence It is important to present all of your evidence in a clear, consistent and legible manner. Your assessor will then find it much easier to make appropriate judgements about the quality, sufficiency and currency of the materials you are putting forward for consideration. It is not necessary to produce all of your evidence in typewritten format some hand-written pieces of evidence, such as notes, will be perfectly acceptable. There may also be items of evidence which you cannot physically include in your portfolio. This might be for confidentiality reasons or it could be that something which you have produced as part of your day-to-day work is normally kept in a filing cabinet or stored electronically. In compiling your portfolio, we suggest that anything you produce as part of your day-to-day work is kept in its normal location, but those pieces of evidence which have been produced specifically for your qualification, eg witness testimony statements or personal statements, are filed in your portfolio. However, assessors and verifiers should be able to locate and access your evidence at all times. It is, therefore, very important that you clearly reference every item of evidence. Referencing your evidence Your assessor, as well as the internal and External Verifiers, will need to find their way around your portfolio, so you should give each piece of evidence a. Remember, that where you have used integration of assessment, you need to give details of all the s and Learning Outcomes which are linked to a specific piece of evidence. The links should be noted on the pieces of evidence themselves as well as on the index of evidence (cross-referencing).

I think the meeting also improved my awareness of the current level of understanding and support for health and safety. Clearly the management team is very supportive of all health and safety issues and this was highlighted in a report discussed at the meeting about an incident at another factory. 4 and The meeting has also clarified my thoughts on providing opportunities to promote the advantages and legal necessity of following health and safety procedures.

33 Record of questions and learner s answers Example 7 Promote a Culture of Health and Safety in the Learning Outcome(s) Evidence index 6 Circumstances of assessment First review session with learner. (Considering Assessment Criteria: 1.2 and 1.3 in particular) List of questions and learner s responses Q Having completed your review of the workplace how would you rate the way health and safety information is currently communicated to the workforce within your organisation? Can you support your view? A Q A I d say that currently the communication with regard to health and safety is adequate, there are some good practices, but there are also plenty of opportunities for improvement. Having completed your review, spoken to employees and collated the results of your questionnaire what would you say is the current level of understanding and support for health and safety instructions and procedures? Generally the understanding of health and safety instructions and procedures is good. All employees remembered the information they had been given at induction, they could show me the relevant sections within the staff handbook and they were aware of the importance of health and safety. However in some of the operational areas there are instances where standards have begun to slip and shortcuts are being made. When I develop my plan I will need to focus on opportunities for promoting the advantages and legal necessity of following health and safety procedures. I m sure management will support me with this.
