Qualification regulation and support
The Highfield Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling (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. It is also suitable for delivery in Wales and is regulated by Qualifications Wales.
Guidance on assessment
This qualification is assessed by 2 forms of assessment for Unit 1: Manual Handling Safety at Work.
Part 1: Multiple-choice question (MCQ) examination
Learning outcomes 1-3 are assessed by a 15-question multiple-choice examination that must be completed within 30 minutes. Successful learners will have to demonstrate knowledge across the assessment criteria within learning outcomes 1-3 and correctly answer at least 9 out of 15 questions or more to achieve a pass. Completed examination papers should be returned to
Highfield Qualifications for marking and results will then be supplied to the Centre.
Part 2: Practical Assessment
Learning outcome 4 is assessed by a competency-based assessment that is set by Highfield Qualifications and internally assessed and internally quality assured by the centre. Assessment decisions and IQA practices will be subject to external moderation by Highfield Qualifications.
Successful learners will need to achieve pass in each element of the practical assessment and further information about the assessment elements are listed in the Highfield Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling Examination Declaration, Learner List and Practical Assessment Matrix. This is available from the Download Area of the Highfield Qualifications website. Once completed, this document should also be returned to Highfield Qualifications.
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.
