The Role of Progress Review

Your Progress


Check on your candidate’s progress. When you are both agreed that the candidate is ready to be assessed, you observe and check the work they do covering as far as possible all the different parts of the relevant Standards. The detail of the Element above makes it clear what you have to be able to do.

You should take account of all sources of evidence, including any previous learning or experience the candidate may have had and any relevant information which other persons may be able to provide. If you come across conflicting evidence, you must try to resolve the problem, perhaps by checking with your Internal Verifier You must not omit any Statement of Competence, or on the other hand, add any special requirements of your own.

However, your candidate will not be able to demonstrate everything to you, for example, procedures in an emergency, and to assess these you will need to ask questions to check they know and understand what is involved in the various jobs they do.

You should ask pertinent open, non-leading, questions about the underpinning knowledge required for the job in question or about those procedures which you could not observe. Oral questioning may appear inefficient and time-consuming when there are large numbers of candidates to assess, but it has the advantage of being the user-friendliest method and does not have some of the disadvantages of written question and answer tests.
