Introduction – How to use the workbook
This workbook has been produced to help you undertake the studies and practical training necessary to achieve Unit 201 – move, handle or store resources. The onus is on you (i.e. the “candidate”) to provide the evidence which proves that s/he is competent in the various topics and ready to take the part A assignment (provide short answers to a range of questions that will confirm understanding of moving, handling or storing resources). The workbook is a starting point for the candidate to build up a portfolio of evidence. The portfolio might include; * Written answers to the assignment questions
* Photocopies of policies, procedures etc.
* Certificates of achievement or attendance
Or just about anything else, see your assessor for guidance. The candidate does not have to answer the tasks set out in this workbook. They are simply Geason’s suggestions of good ways in which to demonstrate competence in each of the standards. If the candidate, or the assessor, can think of a better way then they are welcome to do that instead. However please remember that the “standards”, the main “learning outcomes” and the “criteria” themselves are set by the awarding body. In other words, there is no flexibility at all in relation to these. All activity sheets successfully completed by you can be used as evidence towards your nvq level 2 portfolio. To fully benefit from this workbook, you are advised to refer to as many varied references as possible (see reference list and sources of information below) and produce work of a good quality. Whilst this pack is basically self-learning, there will be occasions when your tutor will deliver formal lectures to you in groups. Please take notes during these sessions as these will be most useful to you.
So, what are you waiting for……………?
As a candidate you can get started on your portfolio immediately. Your assessor may well have set up some training or support to help you along, but you don’t need to wait for it. Have a look through the questions & tasks and get stuck in to the bits that you think you know.
