What happens at induction?

At the induction day you will complete the registration with SQA and be familiarised with your portfolio, the methods of gathering evidence, you will meet your assessor and have any queries answered.

What happens next?

Your assessor will make arrangements to come out and meet up with you and your line manager, and discuss what is best for your optional units based on your job and what evidence you need to generate. 

Your assessor will meet up with you on an ongoing basis until all evidence is gathered and the portfolio is complete.   In between meetings you will be supported through email and telephone contact.
