The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA), formerly known as the A1 certificate is a recognised qualification intended for those who assess both occupational competence in the work environment and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace, (such as workshops, classrooms or other education and training settings).

Duration

This is a self-paced course. Typically, learners complete it within 3-6 months, but you can complete it much quicker or take up to 12 months.

Units

Learners will achieve 15 credits across 3 units:

  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
  • Assess occupational competence in the work environment
  • Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

Resources

In addition to our extensive online resources, learners will receive a resource pack by post (UK and EU only).

Assessment

This qualification is assessed by a portfolio of evidence that covers all assessment criteria for the units selected. Assessment methods include:

  • 1 x written assignment
  • Access to two learners, completing two different topics/units for each unit.
    • 4 x assessments carried out in the workplace (one to be observed)
    • 4 x assessments carried out in a classroom or training environment (one to be observed)
  • Supporting evidence for each assessment will include planning, assessing and feedback documents.

A qualified assessor in your workplace or your ATC Training tutor can complete the two assessment observations.
