Overview

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. You can make the most out of the course’s interactive materials we provide with open access to knowledgeable learndirect tutors via email, phone and the online portal.

On average learners will take between 3 - 5 months to complete this course.
