Observation record for
Unit 6: Taxi and Private Hire Services For Passengers Who Require Assistance
Learning Outcomes 5 and 6
This Observation Record is to be used to provide a formal record of an Assessor’s judgement of
learner practical activity for Unit 6 Learning Outcomes 5 and 6 of the BTEC Level 2 Certificate in
Introduction to the Role of the Professional Taxi and Private Hire Driver. Only one form should be
completed to cover both the Learning Outcomes being assessed. The record will:

        relate directly to the evidence requirements of the Assessment Criteria for Learning
         Outcomes 5 and 6
        may confirm achievement or provide specific feedback of performance against national
         standards for the learner
        provide primary evidence of performance for all Assessment Criteria
        is sufficiently detailed to enable others to make a judgement as to quality and whether
         there is sufficient evidence of performance
        confirm that national standards have been achieved.

Observation records should:

        be kept and filed for external auditing at any given time
        note how effectively these were used to meet the Assessment Criteria
        record the Assessor’s comments
        be completed by the Assessor who must have direct knowledge of the specification to
         enable an assessment decision to be made
        be signed and dated by the Assessor and the learner.

Assessment tasks and activities should enable learners to demonstrate valid, sufficient and reliable
evidence that relates directly to the specified criteria.

Centres are encouraged to emphasise the practical application of the Assessment Criteria, providing
a realistic scenario for learners to adopt, and making maximum use of practical activities. It is
important to note that where the situation may be simulated, the equipment and protocols must
not. The learner should be assessed using a minimum of two wheelchair types, for example a self-
propelled wheelchair and a transit wheelchair. Where criteria must be demonstrated using
different equipment, two tick boxes are provided on the Observation Record. All the Assessment
Criteria must be met and evidenced in the Observation Record. Below is a list of additional
equipment as set out in Learning Outcomes 5 and 6 that the learner should have access to:

       wheelchair ramp
       vehicle - taxi
       appropriate customer seat belt
       wheelchair restraint
       headrest/backrest
       disability aids

Centres should ensure that learners are fully trained in all the activities they are to be observed in
before completing the assessment. All activities should be carried out following appropriate manual
handling techniques to prevent accident or injury.
