Credit Value: 6

Maximum word count for this unit: 6,000 words

The following assessment tasks have been designed to enable you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of this unit.

All tasks must be completed.

It is an important aspect of the assessment that you are able to demonstrate the application of acquired knowledge to appropriate examples of facilities management. You should therefore read the individual tasks carefully in conjunction with the relevant assessment criteria in the unit specification. Where practical examples are required by a task you must provide them in your answer. You should also pay careful attention to the additional guidance (shown in red italics) in the unit specification as this indicates the appropriate level of knowledge required to successfully demonstrate the assessment criteria.

Each task shows the Learning Outcomes(s) and Assessment Criteria in the unit specification that the task has been designed to assess. You should answer each task as it has been set. Compare your answer for each task against the assessment criteria shown to ensure that they have been fully addressed by your answer(s).

Individual tasks must be completed within the word count shown.

(NB. The word count limits shown for individual tasks are provided to ensure that they receive appropriate weighting in your assessment. Please note however that word counts are a limit and not a target).
