How we assess your skills

For each sector pathway, you will be assessed against a range of specific competencies. These are split between mandatory, core and optional competencies:


  • Mandatory  personal and professional practice and business skills (these are the same for all sector pathways)
  • Core – the main skills of your chosen pathway
  • Optional – additional skills for your chosen pathway

Each competency is assessed at three levels:

  • Level 1 – knowledge and understanding
  • Level 2 – application of knowledge
  • Level 3 – depth and synthesis of technical knowledge and implementation
