** As we are now able to offer a range of qualifications to support our colleagues across the FE and Skills Sector, we are delighted to be able to offer the Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment  **


The Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment is a qualification ideal for those who are just starting out on their journey as an assessor/trainer.  Alternatively, it is ideal for those who are not currently practicing, but who would like to know more about the processes and practices involved with assessment.

The course includes all the elements that are required to become a confident and competent assessor in terms of effective planning and delivery of training, the importance of providing constructive feedback to learners and how to effectively review learner progress. The required assessment tasks are straightforward and will enable you to demonstrate that you can put your learning into practice through evidence and evaluation.

Following an initial introductory session, learning and assessment will be ongoing through our Learning Management System (LMS) where all the resources and assessment materials can be accessed for those on programme.  A follow up session is also available further into your learning, with your assessor offering continuous support throughout your course.
