Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s skill, knowledge and understanding against the standards set in a qualification. The Level 2 Certificate in Photography is internally assessed.
Each candidate must create a portfolio of evidence which demonstrates achievement of all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria associated with each unit. On completion of each unit candidates must declare that the work produced is their own. The Assessor must countersign this. Examples of suitable evidence for the portfolio for each unit are provided in the Handbook.
The main pieces of evidence for the portfolio could include (in no particular order):
