None, although learners who have completed similar level 1 qualifications will be able to build on this learning.
On completion of this qualification learners will have developed skills, knowledge and understanding of health and safety within construction, tiling, wallpapering, basic plumbing and carpentry.
Learners are required to achieve the six mandatory units to be awarded the qualification.
Learners will be assessed by an occupationally competent and qualified assessor whose job is to work with learners and help them to complete their qualification.
Learners will be required to produce a Portfolio of Evidence showing how they have met their performance and knowledge criteria for each unit required within the qualification, as directed by the assessor.
This qualification is not graded.
Assessments designed by centres must be accessible and inclusive and the assessment methodology must be appropriate for individual assessment, giving due consideration to any assessment requirements attached to individual components.
If you are a NOCN Recognised Centre and have learners with particular requirements, please see the NOCN Reasonable Adjustments Policy and Procedure found on the NOCN website at www.nocn.org.uk.
This policy gives clear guidance on the reasonable adjustments and arrangements that can be made to take account of disability or learning difficulty without compromising the assessment criteria.
The NOCN Centre Recognition process requires the centre to hold policy statements on Equal Opportunities, Diversity and Disability Discrimination which will be reviewed by NOCN. Please contact email@example.com for further details.
Recognising Prior Learning is an assessment process that recognises learning that has its origins in a learner’s experience and/or previous formal and informal learning contexts. This includes knowledge and skills gained within school, college, university and outside formal learning situations such as through life, employment, apprenticeships and other work experiences.
NOCN is committed to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and has developed a policy and procedures to inform and support Centres, which is available on the NOCN website.
As part of the requirement to deliver this qualification, the Centre staff involved with the delivery, assessment and quality assurance of the qualification must have a demonstrable level of expertise.
NOCN expects that tutors, assessors and internal quality assurers are able to demonstrate the following competencies:
Tutor Requirements (for training diplomas only)
Be subject matter experts and hold or be registered as working towards a recognised education and training qualification. The minimum expectation is that the level of competence of the tutor should be at the same level as the training that is to be delivered.
Tutor includes everyone on the team who is facilitating or delivering learning in any environment e.g. trainer, coach, teacher, facilitator.
Tutor requirements – add that “the teaching qualification should be a recognised level 3 teaching or training qualification.”
Please review the link below for more details:
NOCN REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROVED CENTRES – CHECKLIST:
Be occupationally experienced and knowledge in the subject area and hold or be registered as working towards a recognised assessing qualification. The minimum expectation is that the level of competence of the assessor should be at the same level as the qualification being assessed.
Any specific requirements are shown under the Assessment guidance and/or requirements section on each component.
Internal Quality Assurer Requirements
Each Centre must have internal quality assurance policies and procedures in place to ensure that decisions made by assessors are appropriate, consistent, fair and transparent, and that they do not discriminate against any learner. The policies and procedures must be sufficient to secure the quality of the award, ensuring validity, reliability and consistency.
NOCN expects that internal quality assurers have occupational experience and knowledge of the subject area and must hold or be registered as working towards a recognised internal quality assurance qualification. The minimum expectation is that the level of competence should be at the same level as the qualification being quality assured.
NOCN supports and recognises Centres’ internal quality assurance systems which support the above; any system should include standardisation and sharing of good practice.
Centre staff may undertake more than one role, e.g. tutor, assessor or internal quality assurer, but they cannot carry out any quality assurance on work that they have previously assessed.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Centres are expected to support their staff, ensuring that their subject knowledge remains current and that their members of staff are up to date with regards to best practice in delivery, assessment and quality assurance.
Facilities and Resources
The facilities and resources section relates to the biblical trades – Training qualifications only.
“The resource available for assessment and training meets the requirements as set out in the relevant health and safety acts. There should be adequate provision of physical resources to support the learning and meet the requirements of the qualification/training.”
Please refer to the specific Training Specification for more information.
Once recognised as a Centre, NOCN will allocate an External Quality Assurer. The External Quality Assurer will have ongoing responsibility for monitoring the Centre’s compliance with the requirements of centre recognised status.
The External Quality Assurer will make regular visits to all Centres. During these visits he/she will:
Monitor the Centre’s compliance with the Centre Recognition agreement by reviewing course documentation, meeting managers, tutors, internal quality assurers, learners and administrative staff.Verify recommendations for achievement submitted by the Centre via Quartzweb if the Centre does not hold DCS.
Refer to the NOCN Quality Assurance Manual for further information on the External Quality Assurance process.
