All assignment work must be your own – your own words. All quotes from reference
sources (e.g. books and websites) must be acknowledged and listed at the end of your
evidence. You must also ensure that the information you provide in
assessment evidence must
be relevant and current (recent enough).
Group or Team Work: In some cases, you will be required to work on a task in small
groups, and your trainer/assessor will allocate you to a group to work as a team. You
may even be allocated a particular role. If you are working as part of a group, you will
still be required to
submit your assessment evidence individually, and your performance
will be assessed on an
individual basis. Therefore, you must keep and submit with your
assessment a record of the
specific contribution you have made to the group task, as well
as keep notes of team meetings
to include in your final submission.
If you are unable to submit any assessment by the due date, you need to discuss this
with your trainer/assessor beforehand and obtain an extension of time. Extensions will
normally be granted only in exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness)
If you do not follow the above rules, you may need to be re-assessed and fees
apply for reassessments.
Please remind your trainer/assessor of any special needs you may have. Where
possible reasonable adjustment to the assessment will be made, provided that does
not affect the
validity of the assessment.
After you have completed an assessment, your assessor will give you feedback about
performance and tell you whether the result is “satisfactory” or “not satisfactory”
If your performance is not satisfactory, you will be advised about any gaps in your
or skills and given an opportunity to be re-assessed.
If you think the assessment process was flawed, you may appeal against the
assessment decision. Refer to Assessment Appeals section of the Complaints and
