Evidence Collection - additional information

You may need to collect some more video evidence for your NVQ portfolio with a Deaf professional who is a native BSL user.  


There are two ways of how you could collect evidence:


In person

Arrange a mutually convenient date and location for your filming session.  It could be at your workplace, home or a room that you will hire.  This gives you the flexibility to collect evidence in a natural environment at a time to suit your needs. You will need to bring with you a suitable camera/filming equipment.

  • You will be able to gather 1:1 formal and informal conversation BSL video evidence – two video clips per hour
  • You will be able to gather group formal and information conversation BSL video evidence
  • You will be able to ask for clarification about specific BSL signs or linguistic rules from native BSL users


The costs will depend on these factors:

  • the qualification you are collecting evidence for (e.g. NVQ Level 3)
  • whether you need one person (for 1-1) or two persons (for group evidence)
  • the distance to your location

If it is not possible to meet in person, you could collect evidence by filming a webcam discussion.  You will need to set up a suitable camera/filming equipment to record our webcam discussion.  If the clip covers the necessary criteria, you are able to include this clip in your portfolio.

Important issues to consider before attending the evidence collection session

  • Ensure you have completed your assessment plan with your assessor
  • Know what topic needs to be covered
  • Inform us which learning outcomes, assessment criteria and knowledge & understanding elements need to be covered before the evidence collection session
  • Feedback on the video evidence will not be provided as this is your assessor’s responsibility
  • The camera/suitable filming equipment is provided by yourself


Sometimes learners find that they are handing clips in but not meeting the required standard.  Here at absolute we can offer 1-1 tuition.  Read more about 1-1 BSL tuition.
