introduction
OCR has reproduced this exemplar candidate evidence to support teachers in interpreting the assessment criteria for the unit SHC 024, Introduction to duty of care in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings. This exemplar evidence should be considered alongside the unit requirements, the Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria. This content has been selected by the OCR Chief External Verifier for the Health and Social Care Diplomas, to illustrate how the assessment criteria are applied, and to provide some commentary on what factors contributed to the final outcome.

The exemplar candidate evidence is intended to demonstrate how criteria have been met and are supported by a commentary. While the exemplars are intended to be useful in interpreting the specification’s Assessment Criteria, they should in no way be regarded as definitive evidence.

COMMENTARY FOR EVIDENCE FOR Ac 1.1

• Assessment Method: The assessor has used an open oral question with this learner ‘Explain what…’; this encourages the learner to think about the meaning of the term duty of care and provides them with an opportunity to provide a more detailed response and to also provide evidence for AC1.2.
