Rights and Responsibilities Unit
Youth Work Apprenticeship Framework
This work book has been designed for learners to help them provide the evidence needed to achieve unit R/602/2954 Understand employment responsibilities and rights in health, social or children and young people’s settings, which has been added to the following qualifications
600/0019/3 ABC Level 2 Certificate in Youth Work Practice
600/0083/1 ABC Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work Practice
Details of which can be found on the ABC Awards web site
The reason for this is that the Youth Work Apprenticeship Frameworks at Level 2 and Level 3 have been amended and were live from April 2011. If learners are completing the ABC Level 2 Certificate in Youth Work Practice or the ABC Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work Practice as part of this new Apprenticeship Framework, they will be required to show evidence of knowledge of Employer/ Employee Rights and Responsibilities. The additional optional unit will provide this evidence
Learners completing the tasks in the work booklet can be supported and guided to ensure that they understand what is required of them, but all work produced must be the learners own work.
The evidence produced must be assessed by a centre assessor against the relevant Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria for the unit. Further information about this is contained in the Qualification Guidance Documents available to approved centres on the ABC Awards web site.
All Assessor decisions should be quality assured through internal standardisation, and ABC Awards will request sample the assessment decisions and internal standardisation within a centre via its External Quality Assurance Process.
Centres may not wish to use all the Tasks in the booklet as they are, and may wish to use other methods of assessment such as oral presentations etc. That is acceptable, but evidence must be provided of an individual learners achievement of all Assessment criteria, be clearly signposted and made available for external quality assurance upon request. For a presentation this could include, research notes used to prepare, visual material and notes used in presentation, witness statements from the assessor etc.
