The required documentation is listed below:

These have been removed from the Portal and published on QualHub on each individual qualification page under the Additional Materials tab.

You will be required to login when selecting this tab using your Portal User account details.

Please note CACHE Technical controlled assessments also require an External Assessment Cover sheet (EACs). The EACs has been amended to make it a generic cover sheet for all qualifications with this requirement and it can be found in the following location:

QualHub – CACHE Member Area – Useful Documents – External Assessment

Please ensure that you use the latest version of all assessment materials.

Changes to Technical qualification documentation:

Please note that for all Technical qualifications, you will now need to download the updated External Assessment Task Instructions for Tutors document from the qualification page on QualHub, as this will no longer be sent with external assessments. This affects the following qualifications:
