Assessment Summer 2021

The AIM L2 Certificate and L3 Certificate counselling qualifications have had their summer 2021 written examination cancelled, and in consultation with subject specialists and professional bodies, it was deemed fundamental for learner’s progression to still meet the standards/provide evidence of the knowledge that the written examination tested, via Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs).  To support centres and learners in providing this evidence, AIM have developed alternative assessments to enable learners to be assessed against the standards which were tested in the written examination. Further information on TAGs and what is required for each qualification can be found here. Please note that these AIM-devised assessments are optional; centres are permitted to provide other forms of evidence. 
These alternative assessments are now available to download from the Portal. The tasks within each assessment are mapped against the relevant component standards of the qualification. The assessment must be internally verified by the centre and externally verified by AIM. The assessment(s) does not need to be taken under controlled conditions, and the award of formal marks/grades is not required.
