1 Introducing Edexcel NVQ/Competence-based qualifications

What are NVQ/Competence-based qualifications?

National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs)/Competence-based qualifications are work-based qualifications that give learners the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their competence in the area of work or job role to which the qualification relates.

NVQs/Competence-based qualifications are based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the appropriate sector. NOS define what employees, or potential employees, must be able to do and know, and how well they should undertake work tasks and work roles. At Level 2 and above, these qualifications are recognised as the competence component of Apprenticeship Frameworks. Qualifications at Level 1 can be used in Traineeships, which are stepping stones to Apprenticeship qualifications. NVQs/Competence-based qualifications can also be delivered as stand alone for those who wish to take a work-based qualification.

NVQs/Competence-based qualifications are outcomes based with no fixed learning programme – allowing flexible delivery that meets the individual learner’s needs. They are suitable for those in employment or for those who are studying at college and have a part-time job or access to a substantial work placement – so that they are able to demonstrate the competencies required for work.

Most learners will work towards their qualification in the workplace or in settings that replicate the working environment as specified in the assessment requirements/strategy for the sector. Colleges, training centres and/or employers can offer these qualifications provided they have access to appropriate physical and human resources.

There are three sizes of NVQs/Competence-based qualification in the QCF:

● Award (1 to 12 credits)

● Certificate (13 to 36 credits)

● Diploma (37 credits and above).

Every unit and qualification in the QCF has a credit value.

The credit value of a unit specifies the number of credits that will be awarded to a learner who has met the learning outcomes of the unit.

The credit value of a unit is based on:

● one credit for those learning outcomes achievable in 10 hours of learning

● learning time – defined as the time taken by learners at the level of the unit, on average, to complete the learning outcomes of the unit to the standard determined by the assessment criteria.

Centres will need to use the QCF Qualification Number (QN) when they seek public funding for their learners. As well as a QN, each unit within a qualification has a QCF unit reference number (URN).

The qualification title, unit titles and QN will appear on each learner’s final certificate. Centres should tell learners this when recruiting them and registering them with Pearson. There is more information about certification in our UK Information Manual, available on our website at: www.edexcel.com

3 Qualification rationale

Qualification objectives

The Pearson Edexcel Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) has been developed to give learners the opportunity to:

● engage in learning that is relevant to them and which will provide opportunities to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life

● develop and demonstrate competence as construction site managers for building and civil engineering, highways and maintenance repair, residential development and conservation and demolition

● develop technical skills and knowledge and understanding related to the specified job roles in the construction and built environment sector

● have their existing skills recognised

● achieve a nationally recognised Level 6 qualification

● develop their personal growth and engagement in learning.

This qualification is for managers on-site who are responsible for leading projects, controlling standards and evaluating work. Learners are expected to already be employed in site management roles, overseeing, or starting to oversee, larger projects and sites with the authority, accountability and decision-making, which comes with site management roles, in their respective discipline/s. They may work across one or more of the following disciplines: civil engineering, highways maintenance, residential development, conservation and/or demolition. The qualification may be used as evidence towards achievement of the appropriate Construction Card Competence scheme on site where applicable, and where this is recognised by the employer.

Relationship with previous qualifications

This qualification is a direct replacement for the Pearson Edexcel Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF), which has expired.

Progression opportunities

Learners who achieve the Pearson Edexcel Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) can progress across the level and size of the construction and built environment competence and knowledge qualifications to other occupational areas such as team leading and management.

It is possible to progress to this qualification from the Level 4 NVQ in Site Supervision, which itself is part of an Apprenticeship. Further progression routes include the Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Contracting Operations Management (QCF) and the Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management (QCF).

Centres must adhere to the Pearson policies that apply to the different modes of delivery. Our policy on Collaborative arrangements for the delivery of vocational qualifications can be found on our website: www.edexcel.com/policies

There are various approaches to delivering a successful competence-based qualification. The section below outlines elements of good practice that centres can adopt in relation to learner recruitment, preparation and support, training and assessment delivery, and employer engagement.

Elements of good practice

Learner recruitment, preparation and support

Good practice in relation to learner recruitment, preparation and support includes:

● providing initial advice and guidance, including work tasters, to potential learners to give them an insight into the relevant industry and the learning programme

● using a range of appropriate and rigorous selection methods to ensure that learners are matched to the programme best suited to their needs

● carrying out a thorough induction for learners to ensure that they completely understand the programme and what is expected of them. The induction should include, for example, the requirements of the programme, an initial assessment of current competency levels, assessment of individual learning styles, identification of training needs, an individual learning plan, details of training delivery and the assessment process. It is good practice to involve the employer in the induction process. This helps employers to understand what will be taking place during the programme and enables them to start building a relationship with the centre to support the effective delivery of the programme

● keeping in regular contact with the learner to keep them engaged and motivated, and ensuring that there are open lines of communication between the learner, the assessor, the employer and teaching staff.

19

Training and assessment delivery

Good practice in relation to training and assessment delivery includes:

● offering flexible delivery and assessment to meet the needs of the employer and learner, through the use of a range of approaches, for example virtual learning environments (VLEs), online lectures, video, printable online resources, virtual visits, webcams for distance training, e-portfolios

● planning opportunities for the development and practising of skills on the job. On-the-job training presents an excellent opportunity to develop the learner’s routine expertise, resourcefulness, craftspersonship and business-like attitude. It is therefore important that there is intentional structuring of practice and guidance to supplement the learning and development provided through engagement in everyday work activities. Learners need to have structured time to learn and practice their skills separate from their everyday work activities. Teaching and learning methods, such as coaching, mentoring, shadowing, reflective practice, collaboration and consultation, could be used in this structured on-the-job learning

● integrating the delivery and assessment of Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) and Employment Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) if the programme is being delivered as a part of an Apprenticeship. It is important that learners understand the relevance of these skills in the workplace and are aware of when and how they will be developing them. Please see Annexe B for mapping of PLTS to the units in this specification

● developing an holistic approach to assessment by matching evidence to different assessment criteria, learning outcomes and units as appropriate, thereby reducing the assessment burden on learners and assessors. It is good practice to draw up an assessment plan that aligns the units with the learning process and the acquisition of knowledge and skills, and that indicates how and when the units will be assessed

● discussing and agreeing with the learner and employer suitable times, dates and work areas where assessment will take place. Learners and employers should be given regular and relevant feedback on performance and progress.

20

Employer engagement

Good practice in relation to employer engagement includes:

● communicating with employers at the start of the programme to understand their business context and requirements so that the programme can be tailored to meet their needs

● working with employers to ensure that learners are allocated a mentor in the workplace to assist them in the day-to-day working environment and to act as a contact for the assessor/tutor

● helping employers to better understand their role in the delivery of the programme. It is important employers understand that learners must be given sufficient and relevant work in order to provide a culture of learning and to ensure that they are given every opportunity to participate in aspects of continuous professional development (CPD).

6 Centre resource requirements

As part of the approval process, centres must make sure that the resource requirements below are in place before offering the qualification.

● Centres must have the appropriate physical resources to support delivery and assessment of the qualification. For example, a workplace in line with industry standards, or a Realistic Working Environment (RWE), where permitted, as specified in the assessment requirements/strategy for the sector, equipment, IT, learning materials, teaching rooms.

● Where RWE is permitted, it must offer the same conditions as the normal, day-to-day working environment, with a similar range of demands, pressures and requirements for cost-effective working.

● Centres must meet any specific human and physical resource requirements outlined in the assessment requirements/strategy in Annexe A. Staff assessing learners must meet the occupational competence requirements within the overarching assessment requirements/strategy for the sector. There must be systems in place to ensure continuing professional development for staff delivering the qualification.

● Centres must have appropriate health and safety policies, procedures and practices in place for the delivery and assessment of the qualification.

● Centres must deliver the qualification in accordance with current equality legislation. For further details on Pearson’s commitment to the Equality Act 2010, please see Section 7, Access and recruitment. For full details on the Equality Act 2010, please go to www.legislation.gov.uk

7 Access and recruitment

Our policy on access to our qualifications is that:

● they should be available to everyone who is capable of reaching the required standards

● they should be free from barriers that restrict access and progression

● there should be equal opportunities for all wishing to access the qualifications.

Centres must ensure that their learner recruitment process is conducted with integrity. This includes ensuring that applicants have appropriate information and advice about the qualification to ensure that it will meet their needs.

Centres should review applicants’ prior qualifications and/or experience, considering whether this profile shows that they have the potential to achieve the qualification.

Prior knowledge, skills and understanding

No prior knowledge, understanding, skills or qualifications are required before learners register for this qualification.

Access to qualifications for learners with disabilities or specific needs

Equality and fairness are central to our work. Pearson’s Equality Policy requires all learners to have equal opportunity to access our qualifications and assessments and that our qualifications are awarded in a way that is fair to every learner.

We are committed to making sure that:

● learners with a protected characteristic (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) are not, when they are undertaking one of our qualifications, disadvantaged in comparison to learners who do not share that characteristic

● all learners achieve the recognition they deserve from undertaking a qualification and that this achievement can be compared fairly to the achievement of their peers.

For learners with disabilities and specific needs, the assessment of their potential to achieve the qualification must identify, where appropriate, the support that will be made available to them during delivery and assessment of the qualification. Please see the information regarding reasonable adjustments and special consideration in Section 8, Assessment.

8 Assessment

To achieve a pass for the full qualification, the learner must achieve all the units required in the stated qualification structure.

Centre Guidance to ensure evidence at the appropriate standard is obtained

At level 6, this qualification is only suitable for learners working with significant levels of responsibility. They may be budget holders, in their respective disciplines, e.g. as site managers, planners, estimators, buyers - with responsibility and broad autonomy for managing projects and people, and dealing with complex problems that arise.

Where knowledge is required, discussions, questioning or other knowledge evidence should show conceptual understanding that enables the student to devise and sustain arguments and/or to solve problems, using ideas and techniques, some of which may be at the forefront of a discipline and from a range of sources

For competence it is expected that the evidence presented is in line with the level of responsibility they currently exercise, for example learners are likely to be operating in a range of varied and specific contexts using non routine and/ or creative activities exercising judgement in planning, selecting or presenting information which contribute to the management of significant construction projects.

They may show that they are utilising specialized skills across one or more disciplines, transferring and applying knowledge to solve complex problems and exercising judgement across a range of situations, determining, refining and evaluating methodology and their results, accepting accountability for achieving group and personal outcomes. They are likely to be involved in leading processes that result in substantial change, taking responsibility for the work and roles of others.

Language of assessment

Assessment of the internally assessed units may be in English, Welsh or Irish. If assessment is to be carried out in either Welsh or Irish then centres must inform Pearson at the point of learner registration.

A learner taking the qualification may be assessed in British or Irish Sign Language where it is permitted for the purpose of reasonable adjustment.

Further information on the use of language in qualifications is available in our policy document Use of languages in qualifications policy, available on our website at: www.edexcel.com

Further information on access arrangements can be found in the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) document Access Arrangements, Reasonable Adjustments and Special Consideration for General and Vocational qualifications. Both documents are on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

Pearson Edexcel Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) – Specification – Issue 3 – February 2015 © Pearson Education Limited 2015

24

Internal assessment

The units in this qualification are assessed through an internally and externally quality assured Portfolio of Evidence made up of evidence gathered during the course of the learner’s work.

Each unit has specified learning outcomes and assessment criteria. To pass each unit the learner must:

● achieve all the specified learning outcomes

● satisfy all the assessment criteria by providing sufficient and valid evidence for each criterion

● prove that the evidence is their own.

The learner must have an assessment record that identifies the assessment criteria that have been met. The assessment record should be cross-referenced to the evidence provided. The assessment record should include details of the type of evidence and the date of assessment. Suitable centre documentation should be used to form an assessment record.

It is important that the evidence provided to meet the assessment criteria for the unit and learning outcomes is:

Valid relevant to the standards for which competence is claimed

Authentic produced by the learner

Current sufficiently recent to create confidence that the same skill, understanding or knowledge persist at the time of the claim

Reliable indicates that the learner can consistently perform at this level

Sufficient fully meets the requirements of the standards.

Learners can provide evidence of occupational competence from:

● 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 programme. The evidence provided must meet the requirements of the Sector Skills Council’s assessment requirements/strategy

● the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) – where a learner can demonstrate that they can meet a unit’s assessment criteria through knowledge, understanding or skills they already possess without undertaking a course of development. They must submit sufficient, reliable, authentic and valid evidence for assessment. Evidence submitted that is based on RPL should give the centre confidence that the same level of skill, understanding and knowledge exists at the time of claim as existed at the time the evidence was produced. RPL is acceptable for accrediting a unit, several units, or a whole qualification

Further guidance is available in our policy document Recognition of Prior Learning Policy and Process, available on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

● a combination of these.

25

Assessment requirements/strategy

The assessment requirements/strategy for this qualification is included in Annexe A. It sets out the overarching assessment principles and the framework for assessing the units to ensure that the qualification remains valid and reliable. It has been developed by ConstructionSkills in partnership with employers, training providers, awarding organisations and the regulatory authorities.

Types of evidence

To achieve a unit, the learner must gather evidence that shows that they have met the required standard specified in the assessment criteria, Pearson’s quality assurance arrangements (please see Section 10, Quality assurance of centres) and the requirements of the assessment requirements/strategy given in Annexe A.

In line with the assessment requirements/strategy, evidence for internally assessed units can take a variety of forms as indicated below:

● direct observation of the learner’s performance by their assessor (O)

● outcomes from oral or written questioning (Q&A)

● products of the learner’s work (P)

● personal statements and/or reflective accounts (RA)

● outcomes from simulation (S)

● professional discussion (PD)

● authentic statements/witness testimony (WT)

● expert witness testimony (EWT)

● evidence of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Learners can use the abbreviations in their portfolios for cross-referencing purposes.

Learners can also use one piece of evidence to prove their knowledge, skills and understanding across different assessment criteria and/or across different units. It is not necessary for learners to have each assessment criterion assessed separately. They should be encouraged to reference evidence to the relevant assessment criteria. However, the evidence provided for each unit must be clearly reference the unit being assessed. Evidence must be available to the assessor, the internal verifier and the Pearson standards verifier.

Any specific evidence requirements for a unit are given in the Unit assessment requirements/evidence requirements section of the unit.

Further guidance on the requirements for centre quality assurance and internal verification processes is available on our website at: www.edexcel.com. Please see Section 12, Further information and useful publications for details.

26

Appeals

Centres must have a policy for dealing with appeals from learners. Appeals may relate to incorrect assessment decisions or unfairly conducted assessment. The first step in such a policy is a consideration of the evidence by a Lead Internal Verifier or other member of the programme team. The assessment plan should allow time for potential appeals after learners have been given assessment decisions.

Centres must document all learners’ appeals and their resolutions. Further information on the appeals process can be found in the document Enquiries and appeals about Pearson vocational qualifications policy, which is available on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

Dealing with malpractice

Centres must have a policy for dealing with malpractice by learners. This policy must follow the Pearson Assessment Malpractice Policy, which is available on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies. Centres must report malpractice to Pearson, particularly if any units have been subject to quality assurance or certification.

Reasonable adjustments to assessment

Centres are able to make adjustments to assessments to take account of the needs of individual learners in line with the guidance given in the document Pearson Supplementary Guidance for Reasonable Adjustment and Special Consideration in Vocational Internally Assessed Units. In most instances, adjustments can be achieved by following the guidance; for example allowing the use of assistive technology or adjusting the format of the evidence. We can advise you if you are uncertain as to whether an adjustment is fair and reasonable. Any reasonable adjustment must reflect the normal learning or working practice of a learner in a centre or working within the occupational area.

Further information on access arrangements can be found in the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) document Access Arrangements, Reasonable Adjustments and Special Consideration for General and Vocational qualifications.

Both documents are on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

27

Special consideration

Centres must operate special consideration in line with the guidance given in the document Pearson Supplementary Guidance for Reasonable Adjustment and Special Consideration in Vocational Internally Assessed Units. Special consideration may not be applicable in instances where:

● assessment requires the demonstration of practical competence

● criteria have to be met fully

● units/qualifications confer licence to practice.

Centres cannot apply their own special consideration; applications for special consideration must be made to Pearson and can be made only on a case-by-case basis. A separate application must be made for each learner and certification claims must not be made until the outcome of the application has been received.

Further information on special consideration can be found in the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) document Access Arrangements, Reasonable Adjustments and Special Consideration for General and Vocational qualifications.

Both of the documents mentioned above are on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

Credit transfer

Credit transfer describes the process of using a credit or credits awarded in the context of a different qualification or awarded by a different awarding organisation towards the achievement requirements of another qualification. All awarding organisations recognise the credits awarded by all other awarding organisations that operate within the QCF.

If learners achieve credits with other awarding organisations, they do not need to retake any assessment for the same units. The centre must keep evidence of unit achievement. Further information on credit transfer can be found in the document Credit accumulation and transfer policy (England), which is available on our website at: www.edexcel.com/policies

9 Centre recognition and approval

Centre recognition

Centres that have not previously offered Edexcel vocational qualifications need to apply for and be granted centre recognition and approval as part of the process for approval to offer individual qualifications.

Existing centres will be given ‘automatic approval’ for a new qualification if they are already approved for a qualification that is being replaced by a new qualification and the conditions for automatic approval are met.

Guidance on seeking approval to deliver Edexcel vocational qualifications is available at www.pearsonwbl.edexcel.com/qualifications-approval.

Approvals agreement

All centres are required to enter into an approval agreement, which is a formal commitment by the head or principal of a centre, to meet all the requirements of the specification and any associated codes, conditions or regulations. Pearson will act to protect the integrity of the awarding of qualifications. If centres do not comply with the agreement, this could result in the suspension of certification or withdrawal of approval.

10 Quality assurance of centres

Quality assurance is at the heart of vocational qualifications. Centres are required to declare their commitment to ensuring quality and to giving learners appropriate opportunities that lead to valid and accurate assessment outcomes.

Centres must follow quality assurance requirements for standardisation of assessors and internal verifiers and the monitoring and recording of assessment processes. Pearson uses external quality assurance procedures to check that all centres are working to national standards. It gives us the opportunity to identify and provide support to safeguard certification and quality standards. It also allows us to recognise and support good practice.

Centres offering competence-based qualifications will usually receive two standards verification visits per year (a total of two days per year). The exact frequency and duration of standards verifier visits will reflect the centre’s performance, taking account of the:

● number of assessment sites

● number and throughput of learners

● number and turnover of assessors

● number and turnover of internal verifiers.

For centres offering a full Pearson BTEC Apprenticeship (i.e. all elements of the Apprenticeship are delivered with Pearson through registration of learners on a BTEC Apprenticeship framework) a single standards verifier will normally be allocated to verify all elements of the BTEC Apprenticeship programme. Centres should make use of our one-click learner registration to access this facility. If a centre is also offering stand-alone NVQs/Competence-based qualifications in the same sector as a full BTEC Apprenticeship, the same standards verifier should be allocated. If a centre is also offering stand-alone BTEC qualifications in the same sector as a full BTEC Apprenticeship, a different quality assurance model applies.

In order for certification to be released, confirmation is required that the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for assessment and verification, and for the specific occupational sector are being met consistently.

For further details, please go to the NVQ Quality Assurance Centre Handbook, the BTEC Apprenticeships Quality Assurance Handbook and the Pearson Edexcel NVQs, SVQs and competence-based qualifications – Delivery Requirements and Quality Assurance Guidance on our website at www.pearsonwbl.edexcel.com

● review other forms of evidence that can clearly confirm industry required skills, knowledge and understanding.

Assessors for this unit must have verifiable, current industry experience and a sufficient depth of occupational expertise and knowledge of managing personal development in a construction-related workplace to be effective and reliable when confirming a learner’s competence.

Workplace evidence of skills cannot be simulated.

Annexe A: Assessment strategy – ConstructionSkills

This is the Assessment Strategy for ConstructionSkills, the Sector Skills Council (SSC) for construction and the built environment. The strategy itself contains a number of appendices, which are also included.

Consolidated Assessment Strategy for Construction and the Built Environment – Craft, Supervisory, Technical, Managerial and Professional

Introduction

This Assessment Strategy provides principles and guidance to awarding organisations so the assessment of units and qualifications with NVQ in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) title and SVQs is valid, effective and consistent, and has credibility across the Construction and Built Environment sector. This is a consolidated ConstructionSkills Assessment Strategy covering construction and the built environment – craft, supervisory, technical, managerial and professional NVQ and SVQ units and qualifications. This Assessment Strategy is one of the strands of the ConstructionSkills’ Construction Qualification Strategy. These principles are in addition to the requirements that awarding organisations must meet for the delivery of NVQ and SVQ units and qualifications as required by the qualification regulators’ documentation. This consolidated Assessment Strategy provides the overarching principles as systems may vary from one awarding organisation to another. Awarding organisations must consistently put these principles into practice.

Appendix A provides guidance to help awarding organisations incorporate relevant parts of these principle requirements in their documentation.

Appendix B provides a list of sub appendices relevant to specific NVQ or SVQ qualifications and units, these sub appendices contain additional information for awarding organisations where National Working Groups or Awarding Body Fora have identified the need for specific clarification. Clarification may be about the terminology of the content of the unit (ref. section 2.1), or specific occupational expertise requirements for assessors and verifiers (ref. section 4).

Awarding organisations must make this Strategy and the relevant Appendices available to assessors, verifiers and candidates.

Principles

1. External quality control of assessment

1.1 Awarding organisations must use risk management for external quality control of assessment. They must evaluate all external verification reports and other data relating to assessment centres. Awarding organisations must address any risks relating to quality control, considering the sector Assessment Strategy requirements for:

● workplace evidence

● the use of simulation

● the occupational competence of assessors and verifiers.

Pearson Edexcel Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) – Specification – Issue 3 – February 2015 © Pearson Education Limited 2015

223

1.2 The monitoring and standardisation of assessment decisions must be achieved by robust and strong internal and external verification systems that meet the requirements of the qualification regulators’ documentation.

1.3 Awarding organisations must be members of the sector’s Built Environment Awarding Body Forum, of which the qualification regulators are members. Members will be expected to provide feedback on National Occupational Standards (NOS), NVQ or SVQ units and qualifications, including aspects informing incremental change.

1.4 The Forum will, in respect of this strategy:

● build on the good relationships with awarding organisations

● provide opportunities to identify and address particular issues of external quality control

● contribute to improving quality and consistency

● support awarding organisations to monitor assessment centres’ performance to identify areas and levels of risk

● provide information and statistics about take-up and completion, as well as trends and developments that can be used by ConstructionSkills and awarding organisations to identify any problem areas and agree remedial action

● discuss matters concerning quality assurance, as well as providing the opportunity to identify issues arising from implementation of NOS and related vocational qualifications

● inform the continuous improvement of NOS, and awards derived from them

● identify and share best practices to build a whole industry approach to pursue excellence in education and work-based learning and assessment process to achieve competence.

1.5 Awarding organisations and their partners, assessment centres, verifiers and assessors must maintain robust and transparent operational arrangements. They must preserve independence in assessment, certification and quality assurance processes. Awarding organisations must ensure clear separation of their NVQ/SVQ assessment responsibilities from their industry, training, membership, certification, accreditation and commercial interests and resolve any conflicts of interest.

1.6 Where e-assessment is used, it must meet the requirements of the qualification regulators’ documentation.

2 Aspects to be assessed through performance in the workplace

2.1 Direct evidence produced through normal performance in the workplace is the primary source for meeting the requirements. This includes naturally occurring documentary evidence (hard copy and electronic), direct observation of activities and witness testimony as relevant. ConstructionSkills’ National Working Groups will specify any exceptions to this position (see section 3).

Pearson Edexcel Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) – Specification – Issue 3 – February 2015 © Pearson Education Limited 2015

224

2.2 Workplace evidence must be supported by the required evidence of knowledge and understanding. This evidence may be identified by:

questioning the candidate

recognised industry education and training programme assessment or professional interview assessment that has been matched to NOS requirements

performance evidence.

2.3 A holistic approach towards the collection of evidence should be encouraged. The focus should be on assessing activities generated by the whole work experience rather than focusing on specific tasks. This would show how evidence requirements could be met across the qualification to make the most efficient use of evidence. Appendix A suggests standard evidence notes for awarding organisations.

3 How simulated working conditions may be used to assess competence

3.1 Simulations (designed situations for producing artificially generated evidence) may only be used where candidates are prevented from gathering direct evidence from the workplace in the normal way because:

● there are hazards

● it is difficult to distinguish individual performance in team situations

● circumstances occur infrequently or long-term results are involved

● confidentiality is important

● there are organisational constraints.

3.2 Any instances where simulation is considered to be acceptable as an alternative (to direct workplace evidence) means of generating evidence, will be determined by the relevant ConstructionSkills National Working Group and stated in the unit. Appendix A suggests standard evidence notes for awarding organisations.

3.3 The ConstructionSkills National Working Group will determine and specify on the required realistic working environment and context to be adopted. This could include appropriate:

● tools, equipment and instruments

● materials

● types of contingencies

● standards and quality specifications

● real timescales

● quantities of work

● physical conditions

● relationships with people

● types of interaction

● communication methods and media

● information and data.

Pearson Edexcel Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Construction) (QCF) – Specification – Issue 3 – February 2015 © Pearson Education Limited 2015

225

3.4 Where simulated evidence is stated as acceptable in the unit, the circumstances and requirements for the simulation needs to be confirmed by discussions between the candidate and the assessor, and which are then agreed by the internal and external verifiers.

3.5 Where other Standard Setting Bodies’ units are imported into a ConstructionSkills suite, the evidence requirements of the originating body will be adopted and specified.

4 Occupational expertise requirements for assessors and verifiers

4.1 Awarding organisations must ensure that assessors:

4.1.1 have sufficient, verifiable, relevant current industry experience, knowledge and understanding of the occupational working area at, or above, the level being assessed.

● at, or above, the level they will be assessing

● of sufficient depth to credibly verify judgements and assessments

● to uphold the integrity of the NOS and this Consolidated Assessment Strategy.

All assessors should have experience as well as, not in lieu of, qualifications.

Where there seem to be gaps in a potentially suitable applicant’s experience and knowledge, the applicant should be interviewed. Successful applicants’ CVs, profiling, reasons for not needing to interview and interview records should be available for audit.

Appendix B1 — Additional Information to the Consolidated Assessment Strategy from the National Working Group for Controlling Lifting Operations

Part A: Clarification and guidance notes

This additional information has been produced to ensure consistency in interpreting the occupational expertise requirements for assessors as described in paragraph 4.1 of the ConstructionSkills’ Consolidated Assessment Strategy. This should help awarding organisations incorporate relevant parts of the Assessment Strategy principles’ requirements in their documentation for the Controlling Lifting Operations units and qualifications with NVQ in the QCF title and SVQs.

Additional requirements for assessors of planning and supervising lifting operations

Assessors must be competent and have an up-to-date working knowledge of the occupation and sector. Assessors must have had active involvement in lifting operations and on each endorsement for which they wish to assess. The awarding body must ensure that all assessors are competent on each endorsement for which they intend to assess.

Supplementary guidance

In order to meet contractual and regulative requirements, many sectors of industry require lift planners and supervisors to possess certification from recognised industry approved bodies. The awarding body should ideally encourage all assessors to hold appropriate registration cards or certificates to support industry initiatives for a qualified workforce.

Where lifting experience was gained within the armed forces, applicants for assessor status should ideally gain external work experience within industry, or be able to demonstrate knowledge of relevant industry working practices outside the armed forces.

Part B: Clarification on standards (NOS) content terminology

Various sectors of industry, supported by the Health and Safety Executive, requested national occupational standards for the safety critical occupations of lift planner and lift supervisor. Standards from the suite of National Occupational Standards for Construction Site Supervision and Construction Site Management were identified by the National Working Group (NWG) as conveniently defining the job roles of planner and supervisor.

Certain standards (NOS), however, use terminology particular to, or make reference to, the construction sector, limiting the scope of the standards. Clarification of NOS terminology has been produced (Appendix B1), by the NWG, for awarding organisations, which provides interpretation and meaning of selected words that are used in lifting operations within other industrial sectors. Provision of this clarification further avoids a proliferation of new standards.

Awarding organisations need to ensure that candidates, employers, assessment centres, assessors and those involved in the verification process for this qualification are informed of the clarification of NOS terminology for planning and supervising lifting operations.

Clarification of NOS terminology for controlling lifting operations

‘construction operations’ Includes lifting operations within other sectors of industry.

‘decision-makers’ This refers to the client, customer or their representative, senior/contracts manager, project team, consultants or in VR 705 the lift planner.

‘ensure notice has been given to all the people who will be affected…’

This means as dictated by the lift plan.

‘lines’, ‘levels’, ‘angles’ This includes load levels, ground levels, lines for placing loads and lifting accessory angles.

‘near neighbours’ This can include other structures and a workforce in a different part of the project.

‘organise and control the site’ The lifting activity and the immediate surrounding area.

‘position, align and/or level the work’

This refers to items being moved and placed and the equipment used to attach and move the loads.

‘produce clear requests for plant, equipment or machinery’

This means those specified by the lift plan.

‘place and maintain notices’ This means ensuring that the correct notices (for the lifting activity) are in place prior to the commencement of the lifting activity, and checked throughout the duration of the activity.

‘plan how the work will be undertaken’

This means as dictated by the lift plan.

‘programmes and schedules’ This refers to either components part of, or the complete lift plan.

‘project’ A lifting operation that is taking place within an overall contract, project or work activity.

‘project plan’ This refers to either components part of, or the complete lift plan.

‘site’ A lifting operation that is taking place within an overall contract, project or work activity.

‘site plan’ This refers to either components part of, or the complete lift plan.

‘vehicular access’ This can comprise of all forms of transport, including waterborne and airborne craft.

Appendix B2 – Additional Information to the Consolidated Assessment Strategy from the Awarding Body Forum for Plant Operations

Clarification and guidance notes

Aspects to be assessed through performance in the workplace

This additional information has been produced to ensure consistency in aspects to be assessed through performance in the workplace as described in paragraph 2.1 of the ConstructionSkills’ Consolidated Assessment Strategy. This should help awarding organisations incorporate the guidance into their assessment methodology for Plant Operations units and qualifications with NVQ in the QCF title and SVQ in the SCQF.

Additional requirements for assessment in the workplace

Direct evidence produced through normal performance in the workplace is the primary source for meeting the requirements. This direct evidence must be met using a combination of the following methods:

● direct observation by the assessor

● witness testimony by an expert witness related to the occupational area

● professional discussion.

Workplace evidence must be supported by the required evidence of knowledge and understanding gained from at least three month’s work-based experience.

Occupational expertise requirements for assessors

This additional information has been produced to ensure consistency in interpreting the occupational expertise requirements for assessors as described in paragraph 4.1 of the ConstructionSkills’ Consolidated Assessment Strategy. This should help awarding organisations incorporate relevant parts of the Assessment Strategy principles’ requirements in their documentation for Plant Operations units and qualifications with NVQ in the QCF title and SVQs.

Additional requirements for assessors of plant operations

Assessors must be competent and have an up-to-date working knowledge of the occupation and sector. Assessors must have had active involvement in plant operations and on each endorsement for which they wish to assess. The awarding organisation must ensure that all assessors are competent on each endorsement for which they intend to assess in accordance with requirements of the qualification regulators’ guidance for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Supplementary guidance

In order to meet contractual and regulative requirements, many sectors of industry require operators of plant and equipment to possess certification from recognised industry approved bodies. The awarding organisation should ideally encourage all assessors to hold appropriate registration cards or certificates to support industry initiatives for a qualified workforce.

Where plant operating experience was gained within the armed forces, applicants for assessor status should ideally gain external work experience within industry, or be able to demonstrate knowledge of relevant industry working practices outside the armed forces.

Appendix C – Guidance on the use of simulation

Introduction

National Occupational Standards (NOS) are developed by Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) and describe the level of occupational competence required of a particular job role. NOS are then used to build National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (N/SVQs) that are competence based qualifications and demand assessment in a workplace environment.

Assessment of N/SVQs through simulation is indicated where the achievement of valid and reliable assessment calls for evidence of performance under workplace conditions, but where it will be difficult to assess through normal working practice. This will usually apply as a result of one or more of the following constraints:

● activities which are inherently hazardous and where mistakes made in carrying them out would pose unacceptable risks to the candidate, other people, animals or property (e.g. electricity and gas sectors, fire service etc.)

● the costs incurred would be unacceptably high if mistakes were made during an activity and a candidate would therefore be required to ‘prove’ competence before progressing onto the actual work (e.g. handling rare or precious objects)

● situations where the qualities and outcomes of the candidate’s behaviour are almost impossible to distinguish from those of their peers or colleagues, making authenticity uncertain (e.g. in some teamwork contexts)

● activities or situations which are sufficiently rare (e.g. where processes, such as a ‘shut-down’, may only occur on an annual basis)

● when the collection and/or review of evidence of workplace performance would intrude unacceptably on personal privacy or confidentiality, or would significantly alter the nature of an interaction or relationship (e.g. in some healthcare settings)

● a requirement to work with new techniques and/or work practices which may not be available in all workplaces.

Where permitted, simulation can take one or a combination of the two following forms:

● the candidate is presented with an activity to perform using equipment and/or in a location which replicates that found in the workplace

● the candidate is presented with a situation to which they must respond; taking and playing the role they would expect to play in the workplace.

It is a SSC’s responsibility to define the acceptability of evidence from simulation in the context of National Occupational Standards (NOS) and National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (N/SVQs). The ConstructionSkills Consolidated Assessment Strategy provides this guidance.
