Professional Discussions and Interviews feature in the majority of apprenticeship assessment plans and play a pivotal role in assessing the apprentice’s competence.
Whether you’re preparing apprentices for end-point assessment, or are an end-point assessor yourself, knowing how to conduct these assessment methods in a way that is robust and reliable is vital.
This brand-new Masterclass, led by Chris Cherry, will not only give you useful guidance, models and insights, but will allow you to hone your skills as an assessor.
Drawn from our work with over 5,000 trainers and end-point assessments, this 3-hr interactive online session will take you through:
- The different types of Professional Discussion and how these differ to Interviews
- The key skills required to conduct these assessment methods, including gathering and analysing evidence and reaching evaluative judgements
- Practical insights into setting up and conducting reliable and robust assessments
- Work through three assessment scenarios with peers to identify helpful and unhelpful assessment practices
- Develop your assessment skills through simulated assessments / role play
The Masterclass will take place on Monday 16 November – 1.30 – 4.30pm
You can book onto the Masterclass for £135 (+vat). If you have several staff who would benefit, let us know and we’ll send you details of the most cost-effective way of accessing the session.
