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!

Geoff's Success Story
Life before Brooks and Kirk
I was, and still am, working in control and automation, instrumentation. During my time in my current role, I have been coaching nationals at my work in Equatorial Guinea. My aim for a while had been to get into a position whereby I could assess NVQ candidates. That way, when they come over to the UK, hopefully, I will be able to help them gain their NVQ Level 3s.
I work in control and automation, instrumentation. So this is what i’m currently coaching in and will be looking to assess in.
Tell us a bit about you
I’m definitely a music man. I like lots of music, but my favourite is house music. I’ve actually built my own home studio (As you can see in the background of the selfie above!). When I’m not mixing or listening, I like to do a bit of DIY.
How did you find us?
Someone I actually used to work with did the course assessor’s course through you guys and attended one of the London sessions. He told me about the course and basically referred me to Brooks and Kirk.
How did you find the course?
I enjoyed the fact that I could learn at my own pace and the distance learning works better for me as I work overseas. In all, I thought it was a great learning experience that I can apply daily in my own vocation.
Life after the Assessor Course
It is possible that I may have accidentally forgot to cover this question with Geoff… But I’m sure he won’t mind me covering it for him in a nutshell!
Geoff is still working for the same oversees company, but since completing his CAVA earlier this year, he is now more involved with assessing NVQ learners. And he must have been missing us, because just 2 and a half months later, he returned to start his Internal Quality Assurance course!
