Employers have a number of different options when it comes to assessment, even as the goal remains the same: to determine whether an employee can do the job or task at hand. What do employers really need to know, and how can they be sure they’re getting it right?
Maintenance of assessment standards is about more than the ability to respond to any change in industry and regulation – it’s about being able to anticipate and plan for change, as SQA explain in this whitepaper.
In this guest post, Ben Rowland, co-founder of Arch Apprentices, explains the benefits of taking on an apprentice in the push to go digital.
With the new Trailblazer Apprenticeships, the government is pushing through the most radical reforms to vocational training in living memory. How can apprenticeship providers and employers prepare for these changes?
Ensuring that apprentices are being assessed by the same robust standards, wherever and whenever they may be assessed, is important for all parties along the food chain – from apprentice to employer to the sector at large.
Now that employers are leading the development of standards for their apprentices, Trailblazer groups will set the industry standards then develop an assessment approach designed to confirm that standards are being met.
