The competence assessor standard has been developed for individuals within an organisation who are designated to be competence assessors and to ensure they are competent to perform their work according to operational standards. The training will provide trainee assessors / delegates with tools to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out assessments within the workplace.
Persons successfully completing all learning outcomes and workplace evidence requirements will be issued with an OPITO endorsed certificate for the Competence Assessor Training Programme.
ContentThe training consists of the following modules and elements:
Workplace Evidence Requirements
In order to achieve the Workplace Evidence Requirements, delegates must submit, as a minimum, the assessment-related documentation listed below to Lerus Training Centre within a twelve month period. Two candidates must be assessed in the workplace and the same two candidates must be used throughout the assessment process:
a) A minimum of one Assessment Plan for each candidate containing the following information:
b) Records for each candidate demonstrating that the planned assessments were carried out using appropriate assessment methods.
The aims and objectives of this programme are to impart initial training requirements to enable trainee assessors, now referred to as learners, to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to carry out competence assessments. Upon successful completion of the training, and with evidence that the skills and knowledge have been successfully applied in the workplace, the learner would be eligible to conduct workplace assessments, providing they themselves are technically competent in the discipline being assessed. Following this training, it will be the responsibility of the employing organisation to allow each assessor to gain further experience. This will normally fall under the jurisdiction of the organisation’s internal verifier position(s).
There are no formal learner pre-requisites for attendance on the Competence Assessor Training Programme; although learners must provide evidence that they have access to a minimum of two candidates undergoing an assessment process in their workplace.
