once a unit is completed and passed by centre assessors.
ll candidates must
judged to the same standard across different assessors
from year to year.
Where more than one Assessor is involved, the centre must appoint an Internal Verifier. The role of the Internal Verifier is to:
check that all assessment criteria and learning outcomes are achieved;
ensure all Assessors have copies of the assessment records;
sample Assessor judgements at appropriate times to ensure that assessment criteria are correctly and
co-ordinate meetings of Assessors, including arrangements to
give and record feedback to Assessors;
maintain records of the work/evidence sampled, and of the outcomes.

Presentation of Folders
• Each candidate’s work should be clearly marked with the
centre name and number, candidate name and
number, unit title(s)
• Ring binders (bulky to post) and plastic wallets (difficult to gain access to work)
• Where work consists of a number of assignments these should be referenced to
outcomes/ assessment criteria.
• Where evidence is presented to cover the assessment criteria for more than one
unit it should be referenced on the cover sheets.
Candidates’ evidence for each unit should be put together with the appropriate assessment record and candidate authentication sheet attached.
Where candidates have completed more than one unit within a qualification area just one authentication may be filled in for that qualification.
Moderation and Feedback
The moderator will
the sample work using the published
criteria in the unit specification.
Samples will be moderated by unit.
If there are any issues at the moderation
stage, WJEC will contact the centre to inform them that
a second sample needs to be sent.
Results will be available via the secure website on:
for January series
for June series
Feedback will be given to centres in the form of a moderator report on the day of results. Moderator
reports will provide feedback on:
he efficiency of the centre’s administration;
he appropriateness of the tasks and the coverage of assessment objectives;
he accuracy of the centre’s assessments against the criteria and in relation to the agreed standard
Return of Work
Moderators will return work direct to centres as soon as possible after moderation.
WJEC will handle with care material submitted for moderation, but cannot accept
responsibility for loss or damage. Samples may be retained by WJEC for use as exemplar or archive material.
Centres are required to retain candidates’ assessed work under secure conditions, so far as practicable, until all possibility of queries on results has been exhausted
, and to maintain their own archive for future internal verification.
Centres are requested to keep a record of candidate numbers and names of those candidates whose work is included in the sample sent or seen by moderators. This information may be required if there are any enquiries upon results at a later date.
. Candidates should be advised not to include any items of real or sentimental
Candidates will receive:
redit Certificates (listing every unit they have
and been entered for);
Qualification Certificates (providing the qualification cash-in code has been entered).
