the foundation conversion
If you completed the foundation portfolio and a service delivery module (SDM) portfolio prior to January 2011, then you are deemed to have met the core skills portfolio of evidence.
This does not include animal health and advice resolution and redress.
If you have completed the foundation portfolio of evidence but not a service delivery portfolio you need to upskill your foundation portfolio to meet the requirements of the core skills portfolio.
This is done by completing the conversion portfolio of evidence.
Animal health and advice resolution and redress portfolios
Animal health and advice resolution and redress portfolios were identifed as not fully meeting the requirements of the core skills portfolio.
If you have completed one of these portfolios and the foundation portfolio you need to complete the foundation conversion portfolio or to map against the core skills portfolio and then complete any outstanding assessment criteria.
