Every Learner is Different | Steven’s Story
Steven is a trainee in oral and vascular face surgery working in the NHS. In his spare time he carries out aesthetic work, including botox and fillers, as part of a Level 7 qualification. He also enjoys scuba diving, and going out for dinner with friends.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
As a medical student, Steven has always been involved in some level of training. Steven has also been on the medical board of examiners, so he had some background in examination and quality assurance.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
His employer was looking for a clinical person to deliver the level 7, but in order for Steven to do this, he needed an IQA qualification. So during the hunt for a training provider, Steven found out about Brooks and Kirk from his current employer, as they had completed the Certificate in Education and Training course with us. Steven didn’t look around at any other providers; he came straight to us.
“What I really liked about Brooks and Kirk was that you could do it from home in your own spare time so it’s very easy just to fit it in with your schedule. I liked Moodle as you can use it in your spare time to work on the assignments. The resources and videos explaining the course materials were helpful as well because with it being a video you can replay the information as many times as you need and want.”
Life after the Assessor Course
Steven plans on finishing his IQA course next, and he will potentially look at teaching qualifications in the future so that he can both teach and assess his students. But, at the moment, he is happy progressing with his IQA qualification.
“It helps if you already have a sector in mind that you want to assess in. The coruses link well because once you have completed the assessor course, you are then able to grow and complete the IQA, which means that you can take on more responsibility.”
