This two day course or 1 day fast-track for those with some experience of assessment will enable participants to develop their assessment practice in relation to assessing OCN London units. With an emphasis on covering devising assessment tasks, making assessment decisions and completing the activities associated with presenting assessed portfolios for accreditation for OCN London courses; participants will learn how to:

  • Explain terminology associated with assessing accredited evidence;
  • Construct effective assessment tasks;
  • provide effective feedback to learners and monitor their progress;
  • Explain how to develop good practice and equitable assessment judgements through standardisation.

This course will be assessed, and successful completion will lead to the achievement of three OCN London bespoke credits at level 3. In order to gain the Level 3 Award, around 15-18 hours of private study will be required to complete all the assignments. There is the option for email contact with the course tutors for any additional support.
