Assessment and Certification

Learners will be assessed through a written examination. Unit EAW1 is a taught unit, assessed by a thirty-minute multiple choice examination. Each examination consists of twenty mandatory questions (1 mark each) with one correct and three incorrect responses available per question. Each examination paper covers the whole unit syllabus with at least one question per unit element and all questions are compulsory.

Once learners have achieved a Pass in Unit EAW1, they are deemed to have passed the overall qualification. The only grade available for successfully completing this qualification is ‘Pass’.

Once a learner has achieved a Pass, they are normally considered to have completed the qualification and an overall qualification parchment will be issued within 20 working days of the confirmed date of the passed unit. However, once the results has been issued, the learner has 20 working days from the confirmation date of the unit to submit an Enquiry About Result (EAR) request.

A learner can re-sit if a ‘Refer’ result is received. There is no limit on the number of times a learner can re-sit a unit. Learners must register and pay the current fee/s by the registration closing date for the relevant examination sitting. Learners who regiter for the Award in Environmental Awareness at Work whilst awaiting a result from a previous sitting of an assessment of the same qualification may not seek a refund of the registration fee if they retrospectively claim exemption from the qualification, subsequent to the issue of the awaited result.
