Qualification regulation and support
The Highfield Level 3 Award in First Aid Response (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 graded pass/fail.
Units 1 and 3
1) Practical observation
The practical assessment is completed throughout the course delivery. This ongoing assessment will involve learners demonstrating practical first aid skills across a number of areas. The practical assessment will be recorded using the practical matrix within the Assessment Pack.
2) Written/Oral questioning
For the theory assessment, learners are required to answer a series of questions contained within the Assessment Pack. Oral questioning can be used where learners need to expand on the answers they have initially provided. In this case, the assessor should document the responses within the assessment pack.
Learners should undertake research into the area of medical intelligence and environmental awareness supporting first aid in their workplace or environment. Learners should then complete the tasks contained within the Assessment Pack.
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.
Where learners are set work to complete that forms part of the assessment during any distance learning, centres must adhere to the principles outlined in the ‘Guidance on Delivery’ section.
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.
On successful completion of this qualification, learners may wish to continue their development by undertaking a specialist or higher-level qualification in first aid.
