Once we have enrolled the learner, they will be assigned an assessor who will work with them to build out their portfolio of evidence. The assessor will also arrange a site induction with the learner. The site induction can be delivered on-site or remotely and is used to plan how the learner will obtain all the required evidence.

The assessor will also follow up with regular reviews to ensure that the leaner is on track with their qualification.
