Physical resources need to support the delivery of the programme and the proper assessment of the outcomes of learning. They should therefore normally be of industry standard.

Staff delivering programmes and conducting the assessments should be familiar with current practice and standards in the sector concerned. Centres will need to meet any specific resource requirements to gain approval from London Media Academy.

How the qualification is assessed

Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s skill, knowledge and understanding against the standards set in a qualification. The Level 3 Diploma in Photography is internally assessed.

Internal assessment

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):

  • Assessor observation – completed observational checklists and related action plans
  • witness testimony
  • candidate’s proof of work
  • worksheets
