How you will work towards Career Mark and beyond
Using our self assessment, you can quite quickly see how prepared you are to go through the assessment process. It will help you to get a flavour of what the award is likely to cover and support you to identify where the gaps are in what you are currently doing.
Having completed the self assessment, you may have some work to do in ensuring you have everything in place to meet the award criteria.
There are two stages to the assessment process:
Portfolio assessment, using our standards you’ll describe your provision and provide evidence to support this. We’ll assess your portfolio against the standards.
Onsite assessment, we’ll visit you to meet with students and assess the impact of your provision to ensure that what you say in your portfolio is having the impact you desire on the students.
Following the assessment you will receive notification that you have achieved Career Mark. Your award lasts for two years.
Our revalidation process has been designed to complement your first assessment providing a continuous cycle of improvement and development.
