Introduction The Level 1 Diploma in Carpentry and Joinery is designed to prepare people to enter the industry in their chosen craft. It has been specifically developed for delivery in a training environment using simulated conditions, and the test(s) are based on the learner showing what they can do as an individual through the completion of all the requirement of the qualification. The Qualification comprises: • general core units • occupation specific units • practical assignment • online testing of knowledge. All the units of training must be completed by each learner. ALL outcomes must be achieved during the training programme. (Evidence from site based testing is not permissible.) To gain the diploma, learners must be successful in all units and the synoptic practical assignment. They must also pass the GOLA online test, a separate knowledge test set and marked by CAA. Another important feature of the Qualification is that it provides a progression route towards achieving a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). Details of the relationship are shown on page 5.

Structure Diplomas are available at Levels 2 and 3 and in some occupations at Level 1. Each level includes all the learning required to achieve that level. Where applicable Level 2 qualifications have the learning outcomes and associated learning hours from Level 1 included in them and, where applicable, Level 3 qualifications have the learning outcomes and associated learning hours from Level 2 (and where applicable Level 1) included in them. For example: • the Level 2 Site Carpentry qualification has the learning outcomes included from Level 1 Carpentry and Joinery. The learning outcomes, hand tools, portable power tools and basic woodworking joints have been included in first fixing, second fixing, etc. • for Level 3 core units, CC 3002K includes the learning outcomes from CC 2002K and CC 1002K. The learning outcomes below show how they build from level to level • CC 1002K – Know how to determine quantities of materials • CC 2002K – Know how to estimate quantities of resources • CC 3002K – Know how to estimate quantities and price work • basic blockwork, brickwork and cavity walling from Brickwork Level 1 have been included in solid walling and cavity walling at Brickwork Level 2 • manufacture routine joinery products in Bench Joinery Level 2 has been included in manufacture complex shaped joinery products at Level 3 • in Painting and Decorating Level 1 the foundation and plain papers have been included in Level 2 standard papers to walls and ceilings, which in turn have been included in Level 3 hangings to walls and ceilings.

All occupations at all levels require knowledge and understanding of health and safety; Units CC 1001K & S Safe Working Practices is included at all levels, but only needs to be achieved once. These training qualifications cover a broader area than that required to achieve an NVQ.

Entry requirements There are no formal entry requirements for the diploma. However, providers must ensure that learners have the potential and opportunity to successfully gain the qualification.

Progression The qualification provides the knowledge, understanding and skills related to the equivalent NVQ unit. On completion of this diploma, learners may progress into employment or on to one or more of the following: • Level 1 to Level 2 in the same occupation • Level 2 to Level 3 in the same occupation • Level 2 or Level 3 to technical supervisors and management qualification For example: • Level 3 Construction Contracting Operations and then on to Level 4 • Level 3 Site Supervision and then on to Site Management • Level 3 Occupational Work Supervision The Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma support the Apprenticeship Framework in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Full details of the requirements of the Apprenticeship Framework for construction are available from: Apprenticeship Framework Manager ConstructionSkills Bircham Newton King’s Lynn Norfolk PE31 6RH

Construction Awards Alliance (CAA) requirements for trainers: To carry out the training of the units, a trainer must be registered with CAA and have a valid registration number. For further details regarding technical or administration information, contact the Construction Awards Alliance, Bircham Newton, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31 6RH or email: caalliance@cskills.org. Diploma trainers must hold ENTO units L9, L11, L12 and L13 or meet CAA’s exemption criteria (see below). There is no requirement to possess TDLB units D32, D33 or ENTO A1. Quality Advisors will be checking trainers’ CVs and qualifications during approval visits for prospective centres and during routine monitoring. Centres will be notified through the QA visit planner (form QA2) that all trainers must make their CVs and qualification details available to the Quality Advisor. All trainers must achieve the ‘L’ units within 12 months of beginning their training activity. Exemptions The requirements to have the ‘L’ units will be lifted if the trainer has passed City & Guilds schemes 7302, 7303, 7305, 7306, 7307, 7313, 7331 or 7407, or what CAA considers to be equivalent qualifications from another awarding body, or a Certificate of Education plan. 3


Completion of the diploma Completion will be by: 1)

Achievement of each unit by internal testing undertaken by the trainer. Each knowledge unit also has a mandatory series of questions and answers produced by CAA and managed by the trainer.

2)

Synoptic practical assignment set by CAA and controlled by the trainer. Successful completion of the assignment will be needed before the qualification can be completed.

3)

Online test covering the core units and the occupational units must be passed to achieve the qualification. The test will be an independent test of knowledge and understanding.

Quality assurance This information is a summary of quality assurance requirements and covers: • internal quality assurance • external quality assurance • roles and responsibilities of quality assurance staff. Internal quality assurance Approved centres must have effective quality assurance systems to ensure optimum delivery and testing of qualifications. Quality assurance includes initial centre approval, qualification approval and the centre’s own internal procedures for monitoring quality. Centres are responsible for internal quality assurance, and CAA is responsible for external quality assurance. External quality assurance External quality assurance for the qualifications will be provided by CAA’s Quality Advisors. Quality Advisors are appointed by CAA to monitor the testing and internal quality assurance carried out by centres. Quality assurance is carried out to ensure that testing is valid and reliable, and that there is good practice in centres. To carry out their quality assurance role, Quality Advisors must have appropriate knowledge and expertise. CAA’s Quality Advisors attend training and development designed to keep them up to date, facilitate standardisation between Quality Advisors and share good practice. Quality Advisors The role of the Quality Advisor is to: • provide advice and support to centre staff • ensure the quality and consistency of tests within and between centres by the use of systematic sampling • regularly visit centres to ensure they continue to meet the centre and qualification approval criteria • provide feedback to centres and to CAA.

Units of training

Guidance for training organisations The Units relate to the appropriate National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) units and can be used as evidence accordingly. The units can be delivered in any order or combined, as necessary, to form a part of relevant training programmes. Each unit is outcome-based. The units are designed to be used by learners so they can understand what is required. Trainers To carry out the training for the units, the Trainer must be registered with CAA and have a valid registration number. Confirmation of related knowledge and understanding Oral questioning can be used in conjunction with the written tests. For example, if a learner’s written response is insufficient, the Trainer may ask oral questions to obtain further evidence of knowledge. Learners may also be asked questions based on sketches or diagrams, or to produce sketches or diagrams if these will enable them to demonstrate their knowledge more fully. All testing must be designed and conducted by an approved Trainer. Whichever mode of testing is used (oral, written or both), the testing of knowledge and understanding must occur in close association with the testing of performance. For example, when testing performance in carrying out a pressure test on a system, the learner has been observed going through the correct actions in the correct sequence. The Trainer could then ask questions relating to: • the different pressure ranges • the remedial action to be taken if the test fails. With written tests, it is expected that these will be taken within four weeks of the associated performance testing. Learners may see the test material beforehand but should not be permitted to take it away or to make notes. Learners’ answers must reflect the level of knowledge indicated by the content and scope of a clear marking guide. Learners should be given maximum opportunity to show their knowledge. To enable them to do this, Trainers may give all reasonable help. There is no time limit in which the testing must be completed; Trainers will be expected to use their discretion in this matter. Nor is there any limit to the number of attempts learners may make in order to achieve success. Only those questions to which the learner gives incorrect or insufficient responses need to be attempted again. It is recommended that re-testing should be conducted orally. Trainers must inform learners as soon as possible of their achievement in the tests. Where Trainers obtain insufficient knowledge evidence, they should give advice and guidance to enable learners to meet the required standard on subsequent test occasions. An approved Trainer must mark both oral and written tests. FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE PURPOSES, RECORDS OF LEARNERS’ ANSWERS, BOTH ORAL AND WRITTEN, MUST BE KEPT IN A SECURE PLACE.

7


Oral questions Oral questioning can be conducted through conversation, direct questioning or interviewing. It is a means of gaining supplementary evidence and it will extend and amplify the ability demonstrated in performance. It does not just confirm what has been tested. Learners may be questioned: • while carrying out an activity • immediately on completion of an activity. The timing of the questioning will depend on the nature of the activity. Learners should be given maximum opportunity to show their knowledge. To enable learners to do this, Trainers may give all reasonable help. Learners may be asked follow-up questions to ensure they fully understand what is required by the qualification. Oral questioning can be difficult and often Trainers will need to apply common sense and judgement. It is essential to remember that tests are conducted according to national standards. In cases where organisational practice, procedures or terminology vary from those specified in the standard, learners should be made aware of the national requirements of the scheme. Trainers must prepare the questions thoughtfully and accurately and be able to conduct the questioning sensibly and cordially, putting the learner at ease. Any question not understood by the learner must be rephrased, such as

‘Well, let me put it another way…’

The tone and manner of the questioning is crucial to ensure that learners have a comfortable and encouraging opportunity to perform well. An introduction or preamble to the topic is essential, such as

‘Do you remember when you were asked to…?’

‘We are going to talk about safety…’ Styles of questions may be factual, such as

‘How did you…?’

They may concern reason for an action, such as

‘Why did you…?’

They may concern contingencies, such as

‘What is the procedure when…?’

Synoptic practical assignment The synoptic practical assignment is an integral part of each diploma and all learners must successfully complete it. Instructions for carrying it out are included on the practical assignment specification sheet. Marking of the test is carried out by completing the practical assignment marking sheet.

External quality control of testing Knowledge and understanding It is also a requirement of achieving this qualification that learners pass an externally set and marked knowledge test. 8

You must use the relevant safety equipment and work to current legislation and regulations. If you do not do this, your trainer will stop the test immediately. This assignment is made up of three tasks based around a practical situation.

Background information You are working in a joiner’s workshop. You need to carry out the jobs that your supervisor tells you. This involves you setting out and making an external inspection hatch frame with side hung door, using the information from the drawing on page 2. Task A: Set out (time guide 2 hours) • Produce a setting out rod by drawing to full size the external inspection hatch in the drawing • Show all the relevant detail and information you will need to construct the door frame, and complete a cutting list Learner to submit above work to trainer for marking prior to starting Task B. Task B: Make a frame (time guide 6 hours) Make the door frame. The timber is planed to size and the rebate is ready machined square for you. You need to: • add the weathering bevel using hand tools • cut all the joints using hand tools, except the mortice holes where the morticer can be used • use a router to form the drip moulding and the sub-sill • fix the drip and sill with two screws, drilled and countersunk central, 75 mm from the end. Learner to submit above work to trainer for marking prior to starting Task C. Task C: Make and fit the door in the frame (time guide 7 hours) You need to: • cut all the joints using hand tools, except the mortice holes where the morticer can be used • use a router for the rebate and the moulding • use haunched mortice and tenon joints • mitre the moulding on the top rail and scribed on the bottom rail • cut and fit a 4 mm plywood panel to the door and bead it in using suitable sized beading that is to be mitred. © Construction Industry Training Board 2008 Construction Awards Alliance

Carpentry and Joinery Level 1 – Construct an external inspection hatch Guidance for trainers Practical assignment Pages 1–4 contain instructions to learners and pages 5–12 guidance for trainers. Time allowed – up to 15 hours General guidance The assignment should take place in a suitable work area equipped with appropriate equipment and consumables for the assignment task. Adequate supervision needs to be provided in accordance with current regulations. The learner must use the relevant safety equipment and work to current legislation and regulations. In order to pass this assignment, all relevant aspects of safety must be demonstrated by the learner at all times. Failure to do so will result in the trainer halting the assignment immediately. The trainer should ensure that each learner has a copy of the assignment and the test criteria, that the learners understand the tasks before starting the test and know what they need to do. Once the learners have begun they should be able to complete the tasks without further help or guidance. Asking for help may prevent the learner from passing a task. All work must be the learner’s own. The learner has a total of 15 hours for the assignment. The overall time is split into a suggested time allowance per task, but learners may allocate the available time differently. Over-running the guided time on a task will mean less time available for the remaining tasks. Learners may take two breaks of up to 15 minutes within each 6 hour working day, in addition to lunch on each day. These breaks will not come out of the assignment time but must be agreed with the trainer. Any additional breaks must be taken from the time available for the assignment. The assignment consists of a series of related tasks around a work scenario. In the event that a learner only passes some of the tasks, the learner can be given recognition of achievement in those tasks and the corresponding units achieved as long as they have met all the test criteria for the unit. If a retest is required at a later date, only those tasks (or, where appropriate, parts of tasks) previously failed need be retested. There is no minimum period that must elapse before a learner can retake an assignment; this will depend on the time needed to address the weaknesses that led to the learner failing at the previous attempt. Preparation for the assignment All timber must be pre-machined to the sizes given in the drawing. The timber for the frame must be ready rebated for the learner. The weathering bevel for the sill is to be formed by the learner using hand tools as per drawing. All other timber, for the door, sill and drip moulds, should be square to allow learner to use portable power tools and hand tools to complete the assignment. Suitable drawing boards, paper and equipment must be provided for the learner, to complete the full size setting out rod. Suitable routers and cutters will be required to complete the assignment.

Carpentry and Joinery Level 1 – Construct an external inspection hatch During the assignment As the learner works through the assignment the trainer must mark each stage of every task to enable all criteria indicated on the mark sheet to be tested. At the end of Task A the learner must submit the full-size setting out rod and cutting list to the trainer for marking prior to making the frame. If the setting out rod or cutting list is unsuitable, the test will be terminated. At the end of Task B the learner must submit the frame with sill and drip mould to the trainer for marking prior to making the door. If this work is unsuitable, the test will be terminated. The trainer must provide feedback on performance and, where appropriate, provide a suitable action plan for the learner. A learner whose work meets all the criteria for one or more units should be awarded unit accreditation. Notes on using the mark sheet and feedback sheet The test criteria on the mark sheet outline the performance required in each task. The trainer must use the mark sheet provided to make notes on each learner’s performance during the practical assignment and to record achievement. Comments should support the test decisions. While it is not essential to make a comment for every test criterion, a comment must be made for any criterion not achieved as this will form the basis of feedback and the action plan. A unit may be split across several tasks. A learner needs to achieve all of the relevant test criteria for unit accreditation. The test is pass or fail only; a learner whose performance does not meet all the criteria for a Pass grade will be given a Fail grade. The trainer must complete a mark sheet for each learner, and both trainer and learner must sign and date it. An example of a completed mark sheet is provided below. Although some feedback may be given verbally, trainers should complete a feedback sheet for each learner (see page 12), showing the key information given to the learner. This will also act as an action plan for learners who are unsuccessful in an assignment and need to do further work before taking the assignment again. The mark sheets and feedback sheets must be retained and made available for scrutiny by the quality advisor.
