3 Delivering the qualification
Initial assessment and induction
An initial assessment of each learner should be made before the start of
their programme to identify:
 if the learner has any specific training needs,
 support and guidance they may need when working towards their
qualification.
 any units they have already completed, or credit they have
accumulated which is relevant to the qualification.
 the appropriate type and level of qualification.
We recommend that centres provide an induction programme so the
learner fully understands the requirements of the qualification, their
responsibilities as a learner, and the responsibilities of the centre. This
information can be recorded on a learning contract.

Supporting information
Candidates undertaking this unit are unlikely to have any prior experience
of the Construction industry and may also have limited work experience,
therefore, the delivery of this unit should be approached from a very basic
level.
It is also important that there should be a focus on workplace skills in the
construction industry.
Wherever possible centres should adopt a practical hands-on approach to
learning and the unit could be delivered in an interactive format engaging
the candidates in a full range of diverse learning opportunities
Whilst delivering and assessing the outcomes, it should be made clear to
candidates that good workplace skills are essential to the financial
success of a business and that being able to demonstrate such skills are
imperative to the candidate’s future employment prospects in the
construction industry.
