Assessment explained
VTCT courses are assessed and verified by 
centre staff. Work will be set to improve your 
practical skills, knowledge and understanding. 
For practical elements, you will be observed 
by your assessor. All your work must be 
collected in a portfolio of evidence and crossreferenced to requirements listed in this record 
of assessment book. 
Your centre will have an internal verifier whose 
role is to check that your assessment and 
evidence is valid and reliable and meets VTCT 
and regulatory requirements.
An external verifier, appointed by VTCT, will 
visit your centre to sample and quality-check 
assessments, the internal verification process 
and the evidence gathered. You may be 
asked to attend on a different day from usual if 
requested by the external verifier.
This record of assessment book is your 
property and must be in your possession when 
you are being assessed or verified. It must be 
kept safe. In some cases your centre will be 
required to keep it in a secure place. You and 
your course assessor will together complete 
this book to show achievement of all learning 
outcomes, assessment criteria and ranges.
