Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP)

The Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP) allows experienced landscape workforce with relevant skill sets to have their competencies formally recognised under the WSQ framework. AOP participants may undergo the assessment of a WSQ Competency Unit without having to attend training, thereby reducing the time taken off from work. Participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment if they are assessed to be “Competent”.
