Frequently asked Questions Logbooks
  • If a candidate does not complete all the outcomes
    within a unit e.g. BT5 outcomes 4 shape eyebrows,
    outcome 5 tint eyebrows and lashes and outcome 6
    perm eyelashes candidates would not do all the
    outcomes, how is this recorded?
  • It is important that a vertical line is placed
    through the relevant outcome not achieved with
    the corresponding client number.

67
Frequently asked Questions Logbooks
  • If a candidate does not complete all the outcomes
    within a unit e.g. GH10 as it includes one
    outcome on blow-drying hair and another on finger
    drying, candidates would not do all the outcomes,
    how is this recorded?
  • It is important that a vertical line is placed
    through the relevant outcome not achieved with
    the corresponding client number. For an example
    see Assessors guide.

68
Frequently asked Questions Logbooks
  • Must assessors record a comment in the logbook?
  • No, the comments section may be used for comments
    by the assessor, candidate or client, for
    recording oral questioning and/or timings. But if
    this is already recorded on an treatment/assessmen
    t plan or feedback sheet it does not have to be
    repeated in the logbook. Assessors should use
    their discretion and add comments of quality and
    value.
  • Must assessors use their full signature in the
    logbook, as the box for signatures is small and
    my signature does not fit?
  • A. Assessors may choose to shorten their
    signature so it fits into the box. A record must
    be made of all sample signatures as they appear
    in the logbooks and kept with the IV records to
    show to the EV if asked, and to verify signatures
    used.

69
Frequently asked Questions Logbooks
  • Must the service times be recorded in the
    logbook?
  • A. No, yet there should be some record of
    duration or start and finish time somewhere, this
    could be on a consultation sheet, treatment plan
    or assessment plan.
  • If GOLA is used for knowledge testing what dates
    are recorded in the logbook?
  • The date that all the knowledge was successfully
    achieved, by ticking in the relevant circle and
    dating at the end of all the what you must know
    knowledge statements.
  • Must all the practical observations be cross
    referenced?
  • A. No, the date is the cross referencing against
    the client number, and if consultation sheets or
    treatment plans are used these can be tracked
    through the date.

70
Frequently asked Questions
  • Can witness statements be used as an observation
    performance evidence?
  • It may not always be possible for the assessor to
    be present to observe a candidates performance,
    for example, where their presence might be
    intrusive to the work being assessed or where an
    emergency incident occurs outside a planned
    assessment. For example units G1, And only if it
    is permitted by the standards. Witness
    testimonies may be used as an alternative means
    of collecting evidence to support supplementary
    evidence where the candidate is not required to
    cover all the range through direct observation
    i.e. unit BT7 hand and nail treatments, requires
    the candidates to cover 4 out of the 5 in the
    range. Therefore a witness testimony can be used
    to cover the remaining 1. A witness status list
    should be included in the candidates portfolio.
    See assessors handbook.

  • Essential Knowledge Understanding
  • FAQs

72
Frequently asked Questions
  • What does the term non-mandatory refer to?
  • A. This refers to Awarding Bodies, as it is not
    mandatory for awarding bodies to produce
    knowledge questions to cover the non critical
    knowledge areas within the National Occupational
    Standards. However, City Guilds supply centres
    with E3 written/oral questions or GOLA to cover
    the non critical knowledge areas in addition to
    the E4 questions, to support centres.

73
Frequently asked Questions
  • As the E3 non-mandatory questions, are called
    non-mandatory does this mean they are optional
    for a candidate to complete?
  • A. No, candidates must successfully complete E3
    non-mandatory and E4 mandatory knowledge
    requirements. They are called non-mandatory as
    they can be assessed either oral or written
    questions in open book conditions. Where as the
    E4 mandatory are written, closed book conditions.

74
Frequently asked Questions
  • Q. How do I use E3 non-mandatory GOLA and paper
    tests?
  • The paper tests are intended to be completed by
    the candidate in writing however at the
    assessors discretion the questions may be
    completed through oral questioning if it is more
    suitable for the candidate. E3 questions may be
    taken over a period of time when completed
    through oral questioning.
  • The paper tests should be photocopied along
    with their marking header sheet and be handed out
    to candidates immediately before they take the
    test. Centres can hold a stock securely within
    the centre.
  • New assessors using oral questioning to
    cover the written questions must make brief notes
    directly onto the answer paper. The GOLA score
    report can also be used to record evidence of
    oral questioning.

  • Candidates should be provided with a quiet area
    in which to write their responses to the
    questions. Writing materials and a supply of A4
    paper must be made available in case they need
    additional space to record their answer. The
    paper tests do not contain specific time
    allowances however it is recommended that
    assessors allow a candidate an average of four to
    five minutes per question .
  • A suitable invigilator must be present
    throughout to guarantee the integrity of the
    assessment, handouts papers, monitor the time
    taken and ensure that all tests and completed
    answers are collected.
  • Suitable people include trainers, tutors,
    assessors and internal verifiers who are part of
    the centres quality assurance system.

Frequently asked Questions
  • Are all E3 non-mandatory paper tests and GOLA
    open book tests?
  • E3 tests can be taken as open book, this allows
    access to books, materials, photographs, posters,
    diagrams, notes, however candidates cannot
    discuss the question with each other or the
    tutor/assessor. Clarification may be given if the
    meaning of a non-technical word needs
    clarification.
  • 100 achievement is required, a candidate
    who does not achieve 100 will need to complete
    the remaining knowledge by GOLA, paper tests,
    oral questioning or via practical observation.

77
Frequently asked Questions
  • Must all oral questions be recorded?
  • Assessors can record brief notes on the oral
    questions they ask and on the answers given where
    the questions are assessor-devised, and should be
    recorded in the relevant comments areas in the
    candidates logbook. Where the oral questions are
    set and an answer guide is provided, i.e. E3
    non-mandatory paper tests, assessors usually need
    only record the date and outcome of the oral
    questions.
  • However, for verification purposes assessors
    should periodically make brief notes on the type
    of answers accepted, particularly when assessing
    new areas and if they are inexperienced or
    working in sites away from the main centre.

78
Frequently asked Questions
  • How do I mark the knowledge tests?
  • The paper tests have model answers, which are
    supplied in the question packs, these are not
    exhaustive and whilst assessors should try to
    follow the guide as much as possible, they should
    use their discretion, especially where questions
    demand an answer that involves salon policy.
    Assessors should consult their Internal Verifier
    for guidance in cases of doubt, who should
    consult their External Verifier, as required.
  • In cases where the candidates responses are
    unclear, the assessor may use oral questioning,
    the assessor must record brief notes of any
    additional questioning used on the candidates
    answer paper.

79
Frequently asked Questions
  • Are all E4 mandatory tests, paper and GOLA closed
    book tests?
  • A. Yes, they are closed book tests so notes or
    text books cannot be used. 100 achievement is
    required, however once 70 has been achieved in
    one sitting, alternative methods of assessment
    may be used to demonstrate the remaining
    knowledge. If a candidate completes a E4
    mandatory test and achieves under 70 then they
    must re-sit the full test.
  • How do I mark the knowledge tests?
  • A. For each E4 mandatory paper test weighting of
    questions has been incorporated, however it is
    important to note 70 bench mark still remains
    any candidates not achieving 70 must still
    retake the full paper.

Frequently asked Questions
  • Why are some of the what you must know
    (knowledge statements) highlighted in blue, pink
    or green?
  • We have highlighted the knowledge statements that
    appear in other units and have created a Cross
    unit knowledge test to reduce the burden of over
    assessment and repetition for candidates. They
    have been produced for both GOLA and paper tests
    and cover non-mandatory tests only. For guidance
    see assessors guide.
  • If the centre uses GOLA but decides to use the
    paper tests instead must the centres External
    Verifier be informed?
  • No, centres can choose the most appropriate
    assessment method for the individual candidate.

81
Frequently asked Questions
  • When using the paper tests, can the candidate
    only have three attempts?
  • No, the candidate can re-sit the paper test as
    many times as necessary.
  • How is the paper test assessments recorded?
  • See example page in Assessors guide.
  • Are there any written assignments?
  • A. No, however centres can create their own to
    use as formative assessments. Centres wishing to
    develop their own assignments to cover the
    non-mandatory knowledge must see the guidance in
    the Assessors guide.

82
Frequently asked Questions
  • How soon can a candidate re-sit a E3 or E4 test?
  • Assessors should negotiate with the candidate
    when they can re-sit the paper or GOLA test,
    there is no minimum or maximum time. It should be
    when the candidate is ready and has received
    feedback on areas they have not yet successfully
    demonstrated knowledge. In some cases were there
    is a small amount to be demonstrated this can be
    carried out at the next assessment opportunity.
  • Are there 2 sets of mandatory questions?
  • A. Yes, short answer E4 questions within the
    mandatory question packs and online GOLA E4
    tests.

83
Frequently asked Questions
  • Who owns the portfolio and how long should it be
    kept?
  • The candidate owns the portfolio throughout the
    assessment and quality assurance process and
    after certification.
  • Portfolios may be returned to candidates
    after certification. The external verifier may
    however wish to see the portfolio during the
    visit that follows the award of the certificate.
    The centre must tell the candidates that their
    portfolio may need to be retained by the centre
    or made available to the centre for the EV visit.
  • Centres should keep assessment records for 3
    years after certification.
