Assessor Coach Level 4
Duration: 15 Months
Delivery: Online, Face to Face or Both
Start Dates: Monthly
As an Assessor Coach, you will be a dual professional, using your up-to-date professional knowledge and skills to support vocational and professional development across the formal education and training sector as well as in any employer setting, and at any level.
You may for example, coach and assess apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants, to new CEOs) in the workplace. As an Assessor Coach you will assess vocational learners, usually on a one-to-one basis, in a range of learning environments.
Your coaching skills involve complex communication techniques to actively listen, provide feedback and to engage learners in planning their individualised learning programme. These skills are also integral to assessing learners’ competence in relation to work-related/industry standards and life skills.
As an Assessor Coach, you will work co-operatively with other Education and training sector professionals (such as teachers, human resource professionals and mentors/supervisors in the workplace) in supporting the learner’s development of vocational competence and the wider skills that relate to employability and professionalism.
