What is our “Assessment Only Route” to gaining an Ofqual regulated RQF qualification?

Under the “Assessment Only Route”, we assess your portfolio of evidence against the requirements of the RQF qualification that you wish to claim. In other words, we do not provide any tutor support or study resources, but only assess and quality assure your work before claiming the certificate from the awarding organisation.

I have a complicated case- can I discuss it with you?

Sure, you can. Please send your queries to support@schoolofacademics.co.uk. However, chances are that any complicated cases won’t be eligible for Assessment Only Route. We are only able to process the certificates under this route if the portfolio is either ready or will soon be ready without any tutor support. So, if you need any kind of help to make that happen then this would indicate that you will have to apply for your chosen course as usual from the course page, and pay the usual course fee applicable at the time of applying for the course.

What happens if I submit the portfolio and it does not meet your expectations?

As much as we would like to see a complete portfolio submitted for assessment, we recognise that what you consider complete might be different from our expectations. In order to be reasonable and to accommodate our learners falling marginally short of our expectations, we will be able to allow one resubmission if, and only if, up to three assessment criteria (ACs) are not being met. The following examples further explain this point.

Example 1:

You submit a portfolio for Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training under the Assessment Only Route. Instead of paying the advertised fee of £720, you paid £220.

Your assessor determined that one AC from Unit 1 and two ACs from Unit 3 failed to meet the passing criteria. Since the total number of ACs that failed to meet the passing criteria are no more than 3, we will provide you with summative feedback to make the required improvements and you will be allowed one resubmission. There won’t be any extra costs involved.

Example 2:

You submit a portfolio for Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training under the Assessment Only Route. Instead of paying the advertised fee of £720, you paid £220.

Your assessor determined that two ACs from Unit 1 and two ACs from Unit 3 failed to meet the passing criteria. Since the total number of ACs that failed to meet the passing criteria are more than 3, we will provide you with summative feedback to make the required improvements, but you will not be allowed a free resubmission.

You will be charged another £220 for the resubmission. Since you will be paying another charge, you will be entitled to another resubmission so far as no more than 3 ACs fail the passing criteria. Given this logic, it is extremely unlikely for a learner to have to pay the charge the third time.

Can I send you my portfolios so that you can advise me if it’s good enough to apply for the Assessment Only Route?

The assessment only route is essentially a heavy discount that we want to award to learners who already have the portfolio ready or will have it ready soon, saving us time and costs on providing you with the required tutor/assessor support. We, therefore, pass on that cost saving to our learners in the form of a discounted price under this route.

If we start assessing portfolios to advise on their eligibility for the scheme, then we would be doing quite the opposite of what we aim to achieve through this route. Therefore, we won’t be able to provide an informal or ‘soft’ decision on the quality of your portfolio unless you have formally applied for this route and paid the applicable fee.
