Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment (UPPA)

The Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment is a knowledge based course.

It doesn’t actually qualify you to assess in the learning environment nor in the work environment. It simply provides you with the knowledge behind assessment;  If you want to assess in both of these environments, then we would highly recommend the CAVA.

This course is ideal for those who are already qualified Assessors and want to get some CPD under their belt.

Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

GLH (Guided Learning Hours): 24 hours | TQT (Total Qualification Time): 90 hours

The Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment consists of 1 unit. This is:

Unit 1 – Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

This unit is entirely knowledge based, and covers all of the theory behind the role and responsibilities of an Assessor. With Brooks and Kirk, you will complete this entire unit via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Alongside our variety of learning resources available on our VLE, you will also have unlimited tutor support.

Based on a couple of hours of study a week, this course should take you around 2 months.

There are no formal entry requirements for the UPPA course. However, we highly recommend you have evidence of occupational competence in the area you wish to assess in. This can be evidenced through accredited qualifications or 3+ years of work experience in your sector.

You can enrol on this Assessor course at any time throughout the academic year. As with all of our courses at Brooks and Kirk, we don’t have set start and end dates. This means you can get started straight away, and finish as and when you need to. You will work through the vast majority of your course via our online learning system.

We are registered with City & Guilds and SFJ Awards. With Brooks and Kirk, you can choose who you want your assessor qualification to be accredited by.

If you would like to enrol with us today, you can do so online here or by giving us a call on 01205 805 155 between the hours of 9am and 6.30pm.

There are three different ways you can pay for our courses at Brooks and Kirk. There are also two different awarding bodies you can choose from to certificate you for your course; the awarding body you choose will not effect any element of the course except the price.
