CADUK can provide on-site assessment at this level if this is deemed to be a necessary exercise, although generally we carry out the assessment interactively online though our bespoke ePortfolio system.
Learners are required to respond to criteria by collating evidence which occurs naturally within their work to demonstrate particular skills. The assessor will go through the evidence that has been collected to ensure that all the areas of the NVQ have been covered.
