You will also be giving a declaration of authenticity for the work that you carry out for the qualification you are working towards confirming that I confirm, your evidence portfolio is all your own work and does not include any work completed by anyone other than yourself. You will sign to declare that you will complete the assignment / portfolio in accordance with SEG Awards’ instructions and within the time limits set by Roots to Fruit Midlands Ltd. Unless otherwise stated e.g. for some entry level qualifications, learners can work together but should identify sections which are their own work.
By agreeing to the declaration of authenticity you confirm that the work you submit for assessment is your own and that you have not copied it from someone else or allowed another learner to copy it from you. When preparing any course work it is good practice to undertake research using information from published sources. If you quote directly from these sources then this must be indicated in your work by using quotation marks and referencing the document from which the quotation was taken. You must then comment in your own words on any ideas expressed.
Assessors, internal verifiers and SEG Awards’ external moderators and verifiers are subject specialists who can spot the use of published materials that may be passed as your own words or ideas.
If you do copy words from a published source and do not indicate their reference you will be committing plagiarism. This is considered a form of cheating and may result in your assessment being declared void.
