Providers of procedures for identifying and validating NVQs are entered in a register of providers maintained in the collection of the national information centre for vocational qualifications. These are: vocational schools, businesses, B2B training centres, adult education centres and chambers of commerce.
Candidates demonstrate attainment of the knowledge, skills and competences defined in the catalogue of standards of vocational knowledge and skills.
- At least upper-secondary general or professional education with experience of working as a prompter. The candidates support the claim of work experience by presenting objective evidence of working on ten different theatre productions or at least twenty other performance events, with a mention in the theatre programme, mention in a public announcement, awards, mention in the credits of a show/film/live broadcast, etc., a producer’s, stage designer’s or chief technician’s confirmation.
During the guidance process the candidate prepares a portfolio, which is evaluated by a committee. If the candidate has submitted authentic, valid and relevant proof of knowledge, skills and competences from the operational standard, the committee may:
- validate the contents of the occupational standard in full,
- validate the contents of the occupational standard in part and define the knowledge, skills and competence to be verified,
- refuse to validate any of the contents of the occupational standard because the candidate has not provided proof of any of the knowledge, skills and competences under the occupational standard, in which case it will verify the occupational standard in full.
The candidate prepares and then, as part of the assessment, defends a professional assignment, in which he/she describes and justifies the individual elements of working on the selected performance project. They also attach to their professional assignment the entire video recording of the performance of the project in an appropriate format and on an appropriate medium (DVD, USB; electronic portal, etc.).
Individual topics of the professional assignment are determined by the commission, which may choose from one or several elements of the job (more precise description – guidelines for the preparation of the professional assignment can be found in item 11 of this catalogue), depending on the evaluation of the candidate’s personal collection folder.
