6 1. Learning from SVQ Management  Good management practice – indicated by outcomes and behaviours in the standards  Underpinning knowledge about management [e.g. some management theories; benefits of actions; reasons for actions] For many candidates [learners], the SVQ Management reinforces current practice provides a structure and framework to their current practice

7 Demonstrating learning from SVQ Management  Show an understanding of the standards [outcomes; behaviours; knowledge and understanding]  Provide evidence of their work as managers to prove that they work in accordance with the standards Candidate has to make a connection between the standards and the evidence provided - outcomes and behaviours [eg annotation; narrative; reflective account; professional discussion] plus, if needed, answers to knowledge questions

8 2. Performance evidence  attributable to the candidate - produced by candidate with her/his name on it or explicitly refer to the candidate by name [e.g. minutes of meeting; e-mail; performance review]  if not directly attributable, should be a clear indication of how and why it shows that the candidate meets the standards N.B. There are other forms of acceptable evidence eg witness testimony; observation

9 3. Candidate-led portfolios  candidates should take ownership of their work – be responsible for putting their portfolios together  advice, guidance and support from the centre [eg from assessor; through centre systems]

10 4. Standardisation  reviewing a Unit [eg assessors make individual judgements on a Unit and compare decisions]  deepening assessors’ knowledge and understanding [eg through management training exercises]  identifying suitable support material and how it can be accessed and used by candidates [eg websites; SQA support material]  maintaining a standardisation log [Consistency of judgement between assessors and over time] Standardisation meetings can involve:

11 5. Internal verification  IV systems [eg sampling across all assessors and all Units; ensuring that actions recommended by IV are carried out and signed off; induction and monitoring of new assessors]  implementing decisions from standardisation meetings  taking forward EV development points
