Ongoing CPD Training for our Candidates

Continual Professional Development

When our learners have completed their Assessor or Internal Quality Assurer (IQA) qualifications with us, we explain that this is not the end of their training but the beginning of a new phase of ongoing training!

The ongoing training will include attending internal standardisation meetings but should also extend to internal or external training events aimed at improving assessment and/or IQA practice.

It is a fact that training organisations who ensure that their staff attend regular CPD events, retain more assessors and learners than organisations who have little or no strategy in place for ongoing Assessor and IQA training.

The following modules have been designed by us in response to requests from existing clients to provide extended Assessor and Internal Quality Assurer training.

Modular Short Courses

These new short courses will enable Candidates to understand and be able to implement more cohesively and effectively their practice in Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance.

Each delegate will receive a record of attendance which will contribute toward CPD requirements.

Ongoing training for Assessors is key to ensuring that best assessment practice is maintained and CPD requirements are met, this means that all Assessors should attend training updates including qualified Assessors!

Ongoing training for Internal Quality Assurers is also very important, not only to meet CPD requirements but to ensure that the function of IQA practice is carried out in line with IQA standards and awarding organisation requirements.

The importance of clear, effective and auditable assessment planning is often underestimated by training organisations which ultimately effects assessment and learning.
The aim of this module is to highlight the benefits of using assessment planning as a key part of the assessment process and to provide information to enable Candidates to put this into practice.

If used appropriately, professional discussion can be one of the most effective methods of assessment.
The aim of this module is to provide step by step information and guidance about how to plan and facilitate professional discussions.

This short course will open your eyes to how user friendly professional discussion can be and how you can implement this holistically into your assessment practice to obtain the very best results.

The diverse range of evidence and support from ‘other people’ involved in the assessment process is often underestimated.
The aim of this module is to highlight the value of utilising evidence from other people i.e. witnesses, it will guide Candidates through the process of getting the most from this type of evidence.
This short course will also raise awareness about other sources of support available to assessors and learners.

Participating in standardisation activities is a requirement for all Assessors. Failure to comply with this requirement will affect the quality of assessment and may result in sanctions from awarding organisations.
This module is aimed at training organisations, internal verifiers and assessors to raise awareness of the requirements for standardisation.
This short course includes ideas for standardisation activities and practical standardisation activities for Candidates.

Effective Internal Quality Assurance is crucial for all accredited training providers.
The outcome of external audits is often determined by how robust internal quality assurance systems are.
This module is aimed at Internal Quality Assurers (IQA’s/IV’s), centre managers and any staff responsible for quality.
This course is designed to provide information or to reinforce information about the requirements of internal quality assurance of the assessment process.

E-porfolios are becoming an essential resource for Colleges andTraining Providers.
As there are a variety of e-portfolios systems, please call to discuss your training requirements.
