Method of Assessment
These qualifications are vocational as they can support a learner’s career progression. To meet QUALIFI’s aim to provide an appropriate assessment method each unit will be assessed through tasks that will be written in a way to make them realistic ‘work-related’ tasks wherever possible. Learners will need to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and. Original thought, problem solving and recommendations on actions will also be asked for from learners where appropriate for the unit. Intellectual rigour will be expected appropriate to the level of the qualification.
Assignments will contain a question strand for each of the given unit’s learning outcomes. The assignment tasks will address the LO (learning outcome) and AC (assessment criteria) requirements.
Within assignments there will always be requirements for learners to engage with important and relevant theory that underpins the subject area.
The assignment questions will require learners to draw on real organisations to illustrate their answers.
To support this activity during the programme of learning, centres are required to make sure that they include case studies of relevant organisations and, wherever possible, facilitate in- company opportunities for learners to undertake research and investigation projects and/or support the organisation with various tasks. Mature and part-time learners will ideally be able to draw on their personal work experience too.

This would typically be a minimum of 5 years in a human resource management role.
