Programme Overview

Training Content

The content of the training part of the programme is focussed on delivering the knowledge and understanding required of an an assessor and will introduce and make use of, the standards that the candidate assessors will be assessing people against post programme.

Practice Session

After the training content has been delivered and we are comfortable that the candidate assessors are ready to put their learning into practice, then there will either be an immediate practice session (Fast-Track Only) or the candidate assessors will return to their workplace to start to assess real people, knowledge and/or work under the guidance of the organisation’s Internal Verifiers (IV) / Internal Quality Assurers (IQA).

Summative Assessment

Once the ‘putting the learning into practice’ session is satisfactorily completed and we are satisfied that the candidate assessors are ready for summative assessment, this will take place with real people either demonstrating their knowledge and understanding or their competence in the workplace or both of these.

This will either happen immediately after the practice session (Fast-Track Only) or at a planned period after the practice is complete.


Standard Programme Format – Groups of Assessors

The training content is delivered in a highly interactive environment over 2-days. Candidate assessors then return to their workplaces in order to put their learning into practice under the guidance of the IV/IQA within the organisation. Once the IV/IQA is satisfied that the candidate assessors are ready for summative assessment, we plan dates to attend the location where the candidate assessors will demonstrate their competence against the standards appropriate to the type of assessment activities they are undertaking, whilst being observed as required by the assessor standards.

Candidate assessors will be responsible for generating and gathering the physical evidence required to prove their competence against the standard however, this process of evidence gathering will be supported by us.

The candidate assessors’ evidence is then assessed by an allocated competence assessor and internally quality assured.


Standard Programme Format – Individual Assessors

The training content is delivered in a highly interactive environment over 2-days although this make take marginally less with only a single candidate. The candidate assessor then return to their workplace in order to put their learning into practice under the guidance of the IV/IQA within the organisation. Once the IV/IQA is satisfied that the candidate assessor is ready for summative assessment, we plan dates to attend the location where the candidate assessor will demonstrate their competence against the standards appropriate to the type of assessment activities they are undertaking, whilst being observed as required by the assessor standards.

The candidate assessor will be responsible for generating and gathering the physical evidence required to prove their competence against the standard however, this process of evidence gathering will be supported by us.

The candidate assessor’s evidence is then assessed by an allocated competence assessor and internally quality assured.


Fast-Track Programme Format – Groups of Assessors

Prerequisites – This programme format is delivered from start to competence in 5 to 7 days depending upon the UK, European or  worldwide location and in order for the Fast-Track programme to work ALL of the delegates (candidate assessors) MUST be from the same occupational area. There are also other requirements that need to be in place which we can discuss directly with you in order to ensure an effective programme delivery.

The training content is delivered in a highly interactive environment over 2-days. Candidate assessors will then immediately put their learning into practice under the guidance of the course leaders and assessor. Once the course leaders and assessors are satisfied that the candidate assessors are ready for summative assessment, the programme immediately proceeds to formal assessment where the candidate assessors will demonstrate their competence against the standards appropriate to the type of assessment activities they are undertaking, whilst being observed as required by the assessor standards.

The process of evidence gathering will be supervised by the course leaders.
