Ascentis are offering a free half day course aimed at centre staff who are delivering Ascentis qualifications. The Assessor and IQA course will run back to back. The Assessor course will start at 09:30 am and end at 12:30 pm and the IQA course will start at 1:30 pm and end at 4:30 pm. This course has been arranged for both Assessors and Internal Verifiers who are either new to the role or would like a refresher of knowledge and understanding in relation to assessments, procedures and expectations.

The purpose of the Assessor course is to look at Ascentis expectations in relation to assessment, including the responsibilities and requirements of assessment, the assessment cycle, the recording of the assessment process, standardisation and the best practise in portfolio building.

The purpose of the IQA course is to look at Ascentis procedures and expectations in relation to internal quality assurance including documentation and managing external quality assurance activities as required by Ascentis. There will be a small test at the end of the training, which will enable delegates to internally verify Ascentis qualifications if they pass.

Any member of staff attending the event will receive a CPD certificate.
