Understanding the Level


All our qualifications – and indeed all accredited qualifications – have a Level. This Level is a guide to the overall difficulty of the units it contains. It also indicates what you will have to know, understand or be able to do to pass the qualification.


Level 3


These qualifications are suitable if you are working or will be working unsupervised. They will either qualify you as a assessor or support you in preparing for an assessor role.

At Level 3 you should be able to use your knowledge, skills and judgement to initiate and complete semi-complex tasks and procedures (within limits). This includes being able to address problems with a level of independence. You also need to be aware of different viewpoints or approaches within your area of study or work.
