These sheets were designed to collect evidence for Functional Skills Speaking and Listening assessments. They act as prompts for the assessor to look for key events and phrases during the discussions and presentations, provide a format for making quick notes and act as a quick check for curriculum coverage at L1 and L2.
Ideal for new assessors who are learning to conduct S&L assessments as part of Functional Skills, both as standalone qualifications and as part of apprenticeship frameworks.
Useful to review with learners, especially those who are nervous and need to have the requirements of the assessment explained more clearly than the exam board guidance will allow for.
Used with adult learners and lower ability teen learners.
Designed for City and Guilds assessments, used subsequently with Pearsons EdExcel. The criteria were designed with government guidance in mind rather than a specific exam board specification.
Praised by OFSTED inspectors and senior management, accepted by QAs as supplementary evidence for discussions and presentations, where a recording of a discussion cannot take place due to restrictions on technology (e.g. in prisons, power stations, etc) or confidentiality (sensitive areas of care homes/nurseries).
