Know your subject matter
Before you can begin to plan for assessing learners, it is important that as a teacher/tutor you have extensive and thorough knowledge of the subject matter being taught and assessed.
Provider's Validated Programme(s)
The validated programme will be given to you by the provider. The programme is a description of what will be taught to enable the learner reach the standards of knowledge, skill and competence of an award, as outlined in the learning outcomes in the QQI component specifications. The programme will also outline for you, in your role as assessor, how to assess the Learners.
Programme(s) leading to QQI CAS awards must be developed by the provider and validated by QQI prior to delivery.
