Sometimes known as the TAQA (Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance), this is a recognised Level 3 assessing vocational achievement certification that came to replace the previous A1/2 and D32/33 assessor qualification. So, whether you need to be able to observe learners in the workplace or assess their vocational knowledge through assignment-based tasks and question and answer sessions in classrooms; the CAVA assessor course will have you covered for your industry.

Security organisations and colleges will require prospective employees to hold a Level 3 assessing qualification. This will enable you to observe trainee operatives in their role and sign off practical activities and written work within their portfolios.

Awarding Organisations require centres to undergo a security approval visit prior to the delivery of their security qualifications. Upon successful completion of this, centres are then permitted to register and deliver courses. This security approval is revisited on at least an annual basis. In addition to the regular monitoring/support visits, Awarding Organisations recommend that centres have a quality assurance system in place prior to the return of assessment material for external quality assurance. Persons completing the quality assurance function should have the appropriate skills/competencies and should not have been involved in any aspect of the delivery/assessment of the course they are quality assuring. This is to ensure assessments are of the highest standard for every course.
