Assessor Training with Practical Assessment


This training option is suitable for people who assess the competence of individuals within a competency based assessment system.

A qualification is not always suitable or required and it of course involves more time and therefore more cost.  The training with practical assessment option allows your assessors to receive the relevant training to work as assessors, but instead of a full qualification, they complete a short practical assessment in the workplace.

This provides a useful feedback loop for people who are new to the assessor role and it helps Polaris Learning to identify where individuals are meeting the requirements of their role as well as any ongoing development requirements.

For your assessors to succeed we believe they must be trained on your company’s assessment process. We can build your assessment paperwork and assessment process into the training so that the assessors leave with a better understanding of their role.

Assessor - Training Workshop


During the workshops, we explore best practice within this setting so that your assessors are clear about what is expected of them when they return to their workplace.

Focusing on this approach, this training would generally be carried out in a one day workshop.

In this workshop we cover:

  • Introduction to Assessment
  • Planning and Assessing Competence
  • Providing Feedback
  • Assessor Assignment

Once your assessors complete the training workshops, we provide a practical assessment for assessors to complete when they return to the workplace.  This is tailored to suit your own organisation’s set-up but typically each learner will be asked to complete a range of assessment activities.  Your assessors are supported throughout by a Polaris Learning consultant.

On completion of this, a Polaris Learning Certificate of Competence is awarded.

Assessor - Online Learning


This involves the provision of an online training process which includes the completion of a formal knowledge-based assignment and practical assessment back in the workplace which is reviewed by a Polaris Learning Consultant.  

The online modules are:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Assessment
  • Module 2: Planning and Assessing Competence
  • Module 3: Providing Feedback
  • Module 4: Assessor Assignment

On completion of this, a Polaris Learning Certificate of Competence is awarded.

We allocate each assessor with a Polaris Learning consultant who works closely with the learner. We build in a series of live webinars or on demand webinars to support the learning process. Client reporting is built in as standard so you can keep track of progress.

The duration of the programme can be organised to suit your requirements and we can facilitate the completion of this over a short or longer period of time.

Assessor - Blended Learning


We can also offer a combination of face to face, online and webinar support and this can be tailored to meet your requirements.
