Sample Portfolios

Sample portfolios submitted by successful candidates for both Route 1 and Route 2 are available to browse here. Candidates for assessment in any modality may wish to refer to these for guidance on the style and content expected by the assessors - even if not in your specific modality since they will provide examples of successful style and layout.

Note particularly the cross-referencing between the competences document, the covering report and the evidence submitted, the identification of benefits gained from the evidence rather than just experiencing it, and the use of 2 or 3 pieces of selected quality data as evidence (often able to utilise a single piece of evidence to substantiate more than one competence) rather than a lot of poorly selected material which would not impress assessors.

The completed bound portfolio would also contain the copies of the certificates and other documentation referred to at the end of the portfolio script but are personal and not included in all of these samples unless stated.

DO NOT USE THESE AS TEMPLATES - they are intended as guidance and assessors prefer originality in presentation as long as the key data is provided.  Remember EVIDENCE must be presented for all your competences - it is not sufficient to simply state in the script that you achieved something unless supported by the evidence.
