Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) (RQF) Level 3

The Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is the only assessor qualification that allows you to practise as a fully-qualified assessor. It is equally suitable to assessors in classrooms or professional training.

Sometimes known as the TAQA (Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance), this is a modern, recognised Level 3 assessing vocational achievement certification that came to replace the previous A1\2 and D32\33 assessor qualification.

By the end of this course, you will be ready for a career in evaluating vocational competencies for a range of qualifications, such as apprenticeships, functional skills, teaching certificates, NVQs, awards, certificates and diplomas.

As Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) is a distance learning course, you will study from home and therefore have the freedom to fit your studies around your family life and other commitments.
