One of the most important skills for trainers and assessors to master when judging apprentice competence is observation.
Effective observation relies on you recognising competence, evaluating the impact of learning, and planning further development. Observation using practical assessment is the most important technique you must master to be able to focus in on specific competencies and behaviours.
In this Masterclass, we’ll help you hone these skills. Over a 3-hour interactive session, we’ll take you through:
- The underlying principles of workplace observation
- Planning an effective observation and practical assessment
- Scenarios to develop and improve your observational and judgement skills in different situations
- Techniques you can use to observe and assessment specific competencies and behaviours
- Recording and capturing observational evidence
During the session, you’ll work through several scenarios in a supportive environment, giving you models and techniques you can use with your apprentices.
The Masterclass will take place on Thursday 1 July, 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.
