Qualification regulation and support
The Highfield Level 3 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work (RQF) has been developed and is awarded by Highfield Qualifications and sits on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). The RQF is a qualification framework regulated by Ofqual and CCEA Regulation. The qualification is also regulated by Qualifications Wales.
Guidance on assessment
Highfield has created assessment paperwork for each element of assessment which are each graded pass/fail:
1) Practical observation
The practical assessment is completed throughout the course delivery. This ongoing assessment requires learners to demonstrate practical first aid skills. The practical assessment will be recorded using the practical matrix within the Assessment Pack.
2)Centre-marked multiple-choice theory assessment
Learners are required to answer a series of questions contained within theory question papers, available to download from the members’ area of the website. Oral questioning may be used. In this case, the assessor should document the responses within the assessment pack.
Learners must achieve a pass in each element in order to pass the qualification.
Assessment must be undertaken in controlled conditions. This means:
- books and other training aids must not be accessed by the learners.
- at least one authorised member of staff must be present in the assessment area while the assessment is being carried out.
- learners may complete the theory assessment in more than one sitting however the centre must collect the paperwork and hold it securely until the assessment recommences.For more information, please refer to the Highfield Qualifications Core Manual.
Sample assessment materials are included within appendix 3 of this qualification specification. A full explanation of how to use the Highfield assessment paperwork is provided in the Tutor, Assessor and Internal Quality Assurance Support Pack, available to download from the Members’ Area of the Highfield website.
Centres must take all reasonable steps to avoid any part of the assessment of a learner (including any internal quality assurance and invigilation) being undertaken by any person who has a personal interest in the result of the assessment.
