Anyone within an organization whose role requires them to assess the performance of others. The course is also aimed at those who require an understanding of the role of assessment within a Competence Standard System. This is a competence-based qualification; therefore this course is for individuals who will undertake the post-course work to achieve their award.
Key Learning Outcomes:
• To allow candidates to understand the key requirements and components of a Competence Standard System and to realize their part, as an Assessor, within this process. To give the candidates the required skill and knowledge to enable them to produce an evidence portfolio, of real assessments, carried out in their place of work or in a training environment. This Portfolio of Evidence will then be assessed and on
successful completion, the candidate will receive their Assessor Qualification.
