There is no requirement for each unit to be assessed separately. Assessors adopt a holistic approach and use a discussion for ‘Internally assure the quality of assessment’ to provide some evidence for ‘Understanding the principles and practices of internally assuring the quality of assessment’. In the same way, some evidence from ‘Internally assure the quality of assessment’ is used for ‘Plan, allocate and monitor work in own area of responsibility’. The evidence for the assessment criteria in each unit is also identified individually.
All required equipment will be provided in the workplace.
