Meet Our Assessors

It’s always nice to be able to put a face to a name. That is why we have got each of our assessors to tell you a little bit about themselves. There will be more profiles coming soon, but for now, here’s the Brooks and Kirk Assessor Training delivery team…

Steve Kirk

Let me tell you something about me. Prior to joining Brooks and Kirk I worked for the United Nation peacekeeping force, spending 5 years in Sierra Leone and a further two years in the Sudan. Prior to this, I served with the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment (1 Para). This role took me across most of the Middle East and Africa. Both of these roles came after a long period of illness where I had to be treated for a condition known as “compulsive liar”, a condition that thankfully I no longer suffer with. 

Alternatively, I have spent the last 10 years here at Brooks and Kirk. During that time I have predominantly been involved in training assessors and IQA’s. Quality control is something that I feel very strongly about,  focussing on ensuring the quality of the learning experience not just passing qualifications.

Hello. My name is Laura and I am addicted to shopping and the gym. Oh, sorry….. This is not the self-help page. So let me tell you a bit more about myself.

After leaving sixth form, I went on to do a degree in Accounting and Finance. Since then, I have gone on to become an Assessor and an IQA at Brooks and Kirk. I am also involved in Apprenticeship delivery and managed to be ‘volunteered’ to deliver functional skills. I am occupationally competent to assess in areas such as; business administration, customer service, marketing and health and social care. As much as I enjoy assessing learners in all these areas, I suppose you could say training up NVQ assessors is my forte. I will ensure that it’s not a case of ‘you’ve done just enough’ to pass your assessor course. I will ensure that you gain the necessary knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a quality assessor.

Dan Kirk

Hi I am Dan. I am the primary developer for the Brooks and Kirk virtual Learning systems including web maintenance and resource design. I am a secondary school trained ICT and Computer Science teacher mainly teaching in a school with high social deprivation. I joined Brooks and Kirk in 2014 and am now the main dogs-body for anything IT related. And yes, I do have to say “Have you switched it off and on again?” If you have any questions relating to the learning systems, I am the primary point of contact. If there is anything relating to, “who is your electrical supplier?” “Who provides your business insurance?”etc.….”nah… not my department mate”.
