Bricklaying Diploma NVQ Level 2 - Experienced Worker Practical Assessment (EWPA)

EWPA offers experienced learners a way of achieving a qualification. It is available to very experienced workers who do not require any further training. This assessment method combines the use of witness testimonies, employer endorsement, practical assessment, professional discussion and questions and answers. It normally involves the learner going to an off-site location to have their practical skills and occupational knowledge assessed. All the practical skills needed to achieve a Level 2 competence qualification are usually included in the practical assessment. The practical assessment is observed by a registered assessor.

A professional discussion and job knowledge question session are used by the assessor to assess the learner’s occupational knowledge and understanding. As the professional discussion is critical to the success of this assessment methodology, we provide one day mandatory briefings for assessors which must be attended within the first six months of the centre’s approval.

Date Time Days Duration
11/09/1900 - 28/06/1900 8:30AM - 5:00PM Sat & Sun & Professional Discussion 2 days
