NOTE: Although this page has been marked as complete, it has not yet been peer-reviewed or quality-assured, therefore it should be considered a ‘first draft‘ and any information should be fact-checked independently.
For this assessment criterion, you will need to be able to show that you record individual assessments in line with the agreed format documented in your organisation’s policies and procedures.
To ensure that the assessment process adheres to legislation and best practice and that assessments are recorded in a universal, internally-agreed format, your organisation will have written policies and procedures. As an employee, it is essential that you follow these agreed ways of working.
Your organisation may use paper assessments, although it is more likely that will have moved to digital assessments. These could be as simple as word documents or you may use a proprietary digital system to record assessments.
Working in line with policies and procedures will ensure that everybody works in the same way and that information is stored securely, in line with data protection legislation. It will also ensure that information is retrievable by authorised person that may need to access it.
