CAVA Course

This course is certified by Highfield and is the equivalent of the old V1 Assessor course 

Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement Level 3 Certificate: consists of 3 units which can be studied together or separately 

Unit 1 Understanding the principles and practices of assessment

Unit 2 Assess occupational competence in the work environment

Unit 3 Assess vocational skills, knowledge and understanding

 

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is the only assessor qualification that qualifies you to become and practise as a fully qualified assessor. It is suitable to assessors in classrooms, professional training or for end point assessors.

The CAVA qualification is equivalent to TAQA (Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance), or A1 and this is a modern, recognised Level 3 assessing vocational achievement certification that came to replace the previous versions of the qualification.

 

The course will enable you to prepare for a career in evaluating vocational competence for a range of qualifications, such as apprenticeships, NVQ, Btec, EPA, functional skills, teaching certificates and more

We offer this course as a distance course or face to face depending on your needs. Our tutors are there to support you on the phone, online or email.

You will have the flexibility to learn at your own pace and take up to a year to complete. You could however, with some hard work, complete in as little as 6 weeks. On average most learners complete in around 3-4 months.

Adapting our teaching to your learning style

We aim to be as supportive as possible to help you achieve your CAVA. This means we can use a range of methods to support you in gathering evidence for meeting the requirements including

  • Work based product evidence (so work you are already doing or have done)

  • Short, written assignments

  • Professional discussion, where you plan responses, and these are then recorded on voice/video

  • Q&A voice recorded, simple and time efficient way of demonstrating knowledge and understanding

  • Online meeting dates to suit your needs

  • Friendly, professional support, teaching and guidance
