Workplace Assessment

What's involved

The initial part of the course covers the theoretical principles of assessment. It investigates the various different assessment methods and the detailed planning of workplace assessments. Learners are required to complete various written tasks during two classroom days.

The practical element requires learners to carry out two assessments on two different employees in their workplace, so four assessments in total. Learners complete a portfolio of the assessment plans, evidence and feedback. This includes your tutor visiting you in your workplace to observe an assessment and give you feedback on your completed portfolio.

What you get out of it
