2. Individual completes a self assessment in SAPp. Hi. Re Guidance for Position Holders • If you believe you meet all the Proof Points for the required level of competence, you should click the radar button for that level of competence and enter evidence to support your selfassessment; • Relevant and recent evidence should be recorded in the evidence text section in SAPp. Hi. Re to support the selfassessment; • The range and depth of evidence to be recorded depends on the competence level concerned (see following slides); • Evidence can be included in SAPp. Hi. Re in the form of attached documents (see detailed SAPp. Hi. Re guidance)
2. Individual completes a self assessment in SAPp. Hi. Re Evidence should meet the four CARS criteria Current - the evidence is sufficiently recent to support a conclusion that the Proficiency Level of Competence is still valid; Authentic - the evidence reflects the position holder’s own work; Relevant - the evidence is appropriate for the position and the Competence Element being assessed; Sufficient - the evidence adequately covers all the relevant Proof Points of the Competence Element at the Proficiency Level being assessed.
