Other assessment options

A person may use a portfolio to document their achievements, with illustrated examples of his/her work experience.

After training, several candidates may collaborate via group work and present their progress and achievements by different means (video, oral presentation, portfolio,…).

The trainees may assess themselves in addition to the written, practical and oral exams, although in itself this personal assessment is not sufficient. Self assessment gives extra information to the assessor concerning the ability of trainees to judge their own work; it may also show the level of self-confidence of the trainee. Self assessment can be carried out with an interview or questionnaires. The assessors are free to decide whether or not they want to run self assessment in addition to the other compulsory parts.
