- Portfolio of Work The learner is required to prepare a portfolio of work based on completed activities which reflect requirements of the workplace applicable to the unit of competency. A portfolio of work will include materials selected and items built to the specifications of the assessment. Learners are reminded to retain a copy of their own work before submission. The assessor will review the submitted portfolio of work against the requirements of the unit of competency to conduct the assessment.
- Written Activities The learner is required to respond to a range of questions and/or case study activities. The learner will research their answers from the issued learning material and other references. A written report will relate directly to the required knowledge evidence in the units of competency and aims to collect both the valid and sufficient evidence of the candidate’s knowledge. (where writing is difficult this form of an assessment will be substituted or supplemented to account for the learning barrier) The assessor will review the learner’s submitted report and using assessment benchmarks will review this work and provide feedback to the learner. The learner is expected to provide a satisfactory response for all questions and case study activities.
- Project Work The learner is required to undertake a range of projects to create various outputs relating to the units of competency being delivered. Where appropriate, the learner will be supplied with template documents and tools. Work projects are particularly applicable to units of competency which included a single task which occurs over an extended period of time. These tasks typically require input from a number of sources and the candidate is required to produce an output for the assessment. The learner will submit their work which will be reviewed by the assessor according to defined observation criteria based on the work requirement.
- Clinic The learner is required to participate in clinic days which are conducted in a retail salon environment with public customers.
- Presentation/Observation The candidate is required on a number of occasions throughout the course to prepare and present a beauty related task.
