QCTO Assessment

Assessment 

Assessment is the process of identifying, gathering and interpreting the information against the required competencies in a qualification or part-qualification registered on the OQSF in order to make judgement about a learner’s achievement through an External Integrated Summative Assessment (EISA).

An Assessment Centre means a centre accredited by the QCTO for the purpose of conducting EISA for registered occupational qualifications or trades.

All occupational qualifications or part-qualifications registered on the OQSF have an Assessment Quality Partner (AQP) associated with it.

An application to become an assessment centre must be submitted to the relevant AQP. It is advisable that the applicant should at least be familiar with the qualification they wish to conduct assessments for. Interested applicants should familiarise themselves with the following documents before applying for accreditation:

  • QCTO Policy on Accreditation of Assessment Centres;
  • Minimum criteria for the accreditation of an assessment centre; and
  • The assessment centre accreditation process.
