A family member who works at a professional level and has a Bachelor and Masters degree, for PD reasons registered for a Level 2 NVQ on a related subject to their profession. What was supposed to be a light non time consuming professional development exercise in reality became a frustrating, competency eroding, and headache inducing activity. When called to assist, I recognised that the questions in the learning outcomes were being miss-interpreted and the feedback from the assessor lent heavily on the limited recommended reading material and failed to connect the candidate, their responses and professional expertise with the learning outcome qualification language and visa versa.
Reader redaction criticism is the process in which the reader in the text is acknowledged. We all read and interpret differently. As a Management and Trade NVQ assessor to the Construction Industry and CIOB application mentor, I understand this and this enables me to guide candidates in completing their NVQs and professional accreditation applications at the required standard with the correct content.
How do you eat an Elephant? ‘One bite at a time’. I often quote this at my NVQ inductions and encourage candidates to continuously work through their NVQs, one small section at a time. However, at RivaSure (we are based in Deal Kent) we also have the accommodation and facilities available to hold one to one or small group day or weekend workshops for candidates who require their CSCS NVQ Management and Supervisory cards and or MCIOB accreditations quickly. Alterantively we have the online facilities to achieve these developmental goals remotely!
