Every Learner is Different (ELD) is all about showing anyone that is considering becoming an assessor, that there are no barriers with Brooks and Kirk. Whatever your area of expertise, age, location, employment status etc, we will have helped people similar to you before. ‘Similar’, but not the same, because every learner is different!
If you would like to be a part of our ELD campaign and share your story, then I’m only a phone call or email away 🙂
“Hello, my name is Edward Vaughan and I have been an IT trainer for more than five years now. I had previous assessing experience as I started out as a trainee Assessor and was doing it for two to three years before getting qualified. When I carried out assessments, my work had to be countersigned by a qualified Assessor. I have taught and assessed ITQ courses up to level 3. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar and cooking.”
What was your reason for looking to retrain as an Assessor?
“I had a bad experience with a previous organisation and was only able to complete the first unit of the Assessor qualification. I had to find a way to complete the full qualification.”
How did you find out about us?
“I did research online to complete an Assessor course with a professional organisation. I enrolled with a previous organisation and was not given the proper support. I found Brooks and Kirk and started reading through their website. I was happy with what they offered, so decided to re-do my assessors qualification with them. The decision to enrol was made easier due to the flexibility of the payment plan.”
What did you think of your Assessor training experience with Brooks and Kirk?
“The training offered by Brooks and Kirk is the most professional and organised level of training I have ever done. All the members are skilled professionals with a high level of customer service. I was very pleased with my accomplishment at the end of the course. The whole experience also increased my confidence when carrying out assessments.”
What has changed since you completed your Assessor course and/or what are your intentions in the near future?
“Having completed the course, I have been able to secure IT assessing jobs alongside my tutoring. I have recently enrolled on the IQA course with Brooks and Kirk to further increase my knowledge in assessment and internal verification. I am looking forward to a challenge yet rewarding learning experience.”
