CAVA is a nationally accepted qualification to give you the skills and sound assessment principles needed to assess in simulated environments, skills tests, oral and written questions, assignments, projects, case studies, and RPL assessment.
You will cover all the essential principles and practices of training, assessment and quality assurance, including assessing competence and achievement. Learning is closely linked with your current work environment. The course is structured across three half day workshops, covering key aspects of the programme, observations of work based assessments, professional discussions and regular 1-1 progress meetings with your tutor.
Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.
You will need:
All applicants must have an interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.
Assessment methods include observation, witness testimony, interview and discussion, oral and written questions, assignments, projects and case studies.
If you will be aged 19 or older on 31 August in the year you begin your course, and have been resident in the UK/EU/EEA for the past 3 years, you may be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of your course. Some courses will have other costs associated, such as for materials and trips. Many of our students are eligible for financial support when studying at college – please click here for more information.
