As qualified training assessors, each of our UK training courses will provide an assessor to support and assess students working towards a vocational qualification within a college, training centre, or workplace. They will ensure that trainees meet the occupational standards required to achieve their qualifications.
Some tutors and assessors may only work with specific units in a qualification, such as specialist units on first aid or health and safety. In some centres, there is a division of duties, with some staff delivering learning sessions, others carrying out observations, whilst others assess only specific parts of the qualification.
Assessed Training Providers
Specialised training can be a highly effective use of time and expertise. However, the IQA must then ensure that all delivery and assessment requirements are being fully met and those assessment judgements are consistent. Once this is established, then it is reasonable to reduce the amount of sampling that takes place.
As assessed training providers, our core responsibilities could include:
- Planning and delivering training and workshops that are relevant to the topic
- Observing candidates in their workplace
- Examining a candidate’s portfolio of evidence
- Providing well-rounded feedback to the candidate
- Keeping a record of the candidate’s progress
- Keeping your CPD record up to date
- Coaching learners through difficult times
Sampling must include direct observation of assessment practice and learner interviews.
