Course Information - All the Inside details!
VTCT courses are assessed and quality assured by your course Tutor and Assessors . Work will be set to improve your practical skills, knowledge and understanding. For practical elements, you will be observed by your Tutor.
All your work must be collected in a portfolio of evidence and cross-referenced to requirements listed in this record of assessment book.
Our School has a regular internal quality assurer whose role is to check that your assessment and evidence is valid and reliable and meets VTCT and regulatory requirements.
An external quality assurer, appointed by VTCT, will visit your centre to sample and quality-check assessments, the internal quality assurance process and the evidence gathered.
Currently this is an annual visit to the School, therefore your final certification may be up to 1 year following the completion of your course if the previous visit has just been been completed This is outside our control. You can request a certificatate from our School to establish that you have completed the course and are awaiting your cert from ITEC/VTCT

A portfolio will confirm the knowledge, understanding and skills that you have learnt. It may be in electronic or paper format. Your assessor will provide guidance on how to prepare the portfolio of evidence and how to show practical achievement, and understanding of the knowledge required to successfully complete this qualification.
