Qualification regulation and support
The Highfield Level 3 Award in Risk Assessment (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
This qualification is assessed in two parts:
Part 1: Multiple-choice question (MCQ) examination.
This method of assessment is an end-of-course exam and must follow the Highfield Qualifications Examination and Invigilation Procedures. The examination for this qualification contains 30 questions that must be completed within 60 minutes. Successful learners must achieve a score of at least 20 out of 30. Completed examination papers should be returned to Highfield Qualifications for marking. Results will then be provided to the centre afterwards.
Part 2: Centre-set and marked assessment
Learners are expected to undertake a risk assessment, which will be internally set and assessed by the centre and externally moderated by Highfield. The risk assessment activity is an opportunity for learners to fully understand and demonstrate the risk assessment process. Learners must follow the 5-step process to risk assessment.
The risk assessment activity should be submitted to Highfield with the examination paperwork for results to be more efficiently processed. Where centres allow learners to complete the risk assessment after the examination has taken place, all examination paperwork must be stored safely and securely until all assessment documentation has been returned and is ready to submit to Highfield.
Learners may use the example forms provided by Highfield within the Assessment Pack which is available to download from the Highfield website. These suggested forms are not mandatory, with the exception of Form 1: Risk Assessment Cover Sheet which must be used. Guidance on alternative, acceptable documentation can be found with the Tutor Assessment Guidance Pack available to download from the Highfield website. Alternative paperwork should be approved by Highfield before centres start to use it.
Tutor Assessment Guidance Pack:
For full guidance on the risk assessment activity, please refer to the Tutor Assessment Guidance Pack. Guidance on external moderation procedures for this activity is also found within this document.
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.

• Highfield Level 3 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace (RQF)
