Centre-devised assessment tasks are permitted, provided theyare approved by AIM Awards before commencement of delivery.Unit SummaryThe aim of this unit is to assess a learning and development practitioner’s understanding of groupdynamics and facilitating learning and development in groups. They are required to understandthe use of a variety of methods, for example, presentations, instructions, demonstrations, smallgroup activities, skills practice and feedback, e-learning, blended learning, role-plays, simulationsand experiential learning.‘Practitioner’ means anyone with a learning and development responsibility as part of their role.Assessment Requirements/RecommendationsThe units of assessment for the Award were written by LSIS, based on LSIS overarchingprofessional standards for teachers, tutors and trainers in education and training.This unit assesses occupational competence. Evidence for learning outcomes 2, 3 and 4 mustcome from performance in the work environment. Simulations, projects or assignments arenot allowed.Each assessment criterion needs to be evidenced once only at the appropriate level, althoughit is envisaged that some will be evidenced many times over the course.The recommended assessment for this unit is the AIM Awards Level 3 Award in Education andTraining Portfolio. Below is the mapping of the AIM Awards Level 3 Award in Education andTraining Portfolio tasks against the unit assessment criteria:3Version 1 – July 2013AIM Awards
