Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment

This course is for trainers and assessors who need to understand the basic principles of assessment. It is essential knowledge for those who intend to support the delivery of vocational qualifications and apprenticeships. 

The training is based on the content of the unit: Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment.

It comprises a one day workshop which will introduce the following:

  • The role of assessment in the training cycle
  • The principles of effective assessment and the assessment process
  • Commonly used assessment methods and their application
  • The role of the assessor
  • Matching assessment to different contexts
  • Quality assurance within the assessment process

Following the workshop learners will be given time to develop their assignments and one-to-one support leading to final assessment against the requirements of the unit.

At RI we provide all our learners access to the SwiftTrack competence tracking system. Learners are expected to use this system to collect and store evidence of their competence. Once complete the SwiftTrack portfolio will be assessed by one of our team of assessors who will determine if the evidence presented is relevant, reliable and sufficient to meet the requirements of the award.
