We are a long standing WAMITAB centre – our origin is The South West Regional Assessment Centre established in 1996. We deliver Levels 1 – 4 qualifications in the following areas:
The way we assess these qualifications is as follows:
We register candidates with WAMITAB and ourselves prior to starting any assessments. The registration fee is payable at the start of the process and further payments are requested after each visit. The registration fee also includes a one-day Environmental Legislation course – see attached course outline, which provides excellent underpinning knowledge prior to starting the qualification and for the knowledge and understanding questions.
We then conduct a pre-assessment meeting to discuss the entire qualification and units that you need to complete, so you get an understanding of what it is all about. We also do a training needs analysis form at this time to identify areas where you may have a gap in your knowledge and will need training/mentoring/support. Paperwork will be sent out to you prior to this.
After this initial meeting, the duration of the qualification is candidate led and by that we mean that you as the candidate and the assessor agree the next date(s) to meet and the scope of work that needs to be covered over that period of time. Evidence can be gathered in a number of ways such as: assessor observations, videoing, question and answer sessions and product (paperwork) evidence. In between meetings, the assessor is always contactable to ask questions over the phone (or emails) to provide you with support.
Costs can be cut down if you have done the amount of work mutually agreed by the time of the next assessment. Costs usually escalate if you tell the assessor that you have done the work, only for the assessor to find that you haven’t when they arrive on site or have a virtual meeting! This can be avoided by speaking to the assessor to re-negotiate a different visit date by which the work is achievable. It’s all about flexible learning and we fit into your schedule and work commitments.
We have just safely resumed face to face assessments on site that comply with current Government guidelines (click here to to our on-site training risk assessment), but if you’re unable to accept assessors on site at the moment – we can still help you work towards achieving your qualification in the following ways:
So as you can see, assessment practices can be tailored to meet your specific needs as our candidate. If you would like to find out further information about a WAMITAB qualification – then please do contact us.
