Re-sits, re-submissions and re-takes

The learner is permitted one re-sit/re-take in relation to each unit of the qualification.

Where a unit is examined/externally assessed, this means one re-sit. Where a unit is internally assessed and externally quality assured, this means one re-take.

Re-sits, re-submissions and re-takes are each permitted where learners have both failed the requirements of the unit and where the learner wishes to improve on a grade received.

Any re-submission of an assignment (ie a second attempt at an internally assessed unit task/assignment prior to external quality assurance) must be undertaken without further guidance from the tutor and must be completed within a defined and reasonable period of time following the learner receiving their initial result of the assessment.

Transferable skills contextualised within the units of this qualification

These are the skills deemed essential by the employers and professional bodies AQA has collaborated with on the development of this qualification. We have contextualised units around these ‘soft’ skills. There may be more than one opportunity for each transferable skill to be evidenced to the required standard across the units within the qualification. It is important to note that learners must demonstrate successful achievement of the identified transferable skill(s) appropriate to the qualification on one occasion to the required standard in the identified unit(s). Evidence produced for the transferable skills will be internally assessed and externally quality assured.
