The assessment methodology is comprised of two distinct elements. This will enable all participants to demonstrate competence, given that individuals are able to express competency in a variety of ways. The assessment will therefore be made up of two parts. Once the participant assessment process has been completed, it will be submitted to BTEC for validation and successful participants will be awarded the BTEC Advance Award in Contract Management (NVQ Level 3) qualification
Part A – A series of problem based case studies, role plays, simulation and tasks, design to enable participants to demonstrate their ability to analyse contracting situations/problems and to demonstrate their competence by being able to apply the tools, techniques and processes and to recommend an appropriate and professional solution. These exercises are undertaken in the classroom and submitted for assessment daily.
Part B – will consist of 20 question test, designed to enable the participants to demonstrate their depth of knowledge and understanding of the key concepts.
