  1. Co. Cavan VECFETACLevel 3 Programme Review 2012

  2. Quality Assurance • These programmes need to be reviewed according to Co. Cavan VEC’s Quality Assurance Policy: • B5 Programme development, delivery and review • B9 - Self-evaluation

  3. What we are reviewing Our 3 Level 3 programmes: • Certificate of General Learning (Everyday Learning Skills) • Certificate in Employability Skills (Skills for Employment) • Certificate in ICT (Skills for ICT)

  4. General • Overall, comments were positive. • There seemed to be no difficulties in the layout and structure of the programmes. • Some indicative content and assessment will be amended according to comments and suggestions.

  5. Application of number • Suggestions to add a few points to the indicative content

  6. Art and Design • A section on presenting work – Level 4/5 standard • Too many finished pieces required

  7. Breakfast Cookery • Evidencing some of the skills demonstrations was difficult • A lot of content for only 5 credits

  8. Career Preparation • Difficult to source materials for the course • Too difficult for many Youthreach learners • Perhaps too much to cover

  9. Communications • Suggestions to remove some of the indicative content, e.g. the personal letter • Interpersonal communication needs reworking with not as much having to be covered, clearer

  10. Computer Literacy • Some tutors unsure of 3rd skills demonstration, more clarification needed • Too much theory

  11. ESOL • Too many reading pieces • Insufficient emphasis on writing

  12. Horticulture • No issues!

  13. Hairdressing Basin Skills • No issues!

  14. Internet Skills • Too theory based • Some discrepancies between indicative content and specific assessment

  15. Mathematics • Possibly too much information in the indicative content, difficult for learners to complete the component due to the amount of work that needs to be covered

  16. Managing Personal Finances • Details such as APR difficult for the learner

  17. Personal Care and Presentation • Hair washing procedure should be a skills demonstration not collection of work, but FETAC have stated 100% portfolio

  18. Personal Effectiveness • Some assessments too vague

  19. Woodwork • No issues!

  20. Word processing • Some indicative content too detailed • Some important aspects left out

  21. Just a reminder…. • Indicative content – ‘indicative’ – it’s a sign of what you should be covering • All learning outcomes must be covered • All specific assessment must be covered • Sometimes learning outcomes are repeated or they overlap, integrate where possible

  22. To sum up.. • Indicative content – match this content to your learning outcomes • If it states ‘to include’ – you should cover all, if it states ‘for example’ – choose the most appropriate examples • Check the specific assessment • …….then you are ready to start writing your assessment briefs….

  23. Thanks! • Thanks to all tutors who gave very valuable comments and suggestions.

  24.
