Every Learner is Different | Thomas’ Story
In Thomas’ free time, he would usually be involved in theatrical stage management for the operatic society, which is just starting to reopen. In the lighter months, he also likes to get involved in some gardening.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
Thomas was already qualified with the Level 3 Award in Vocationally Related Achievement. Intending to work towards becoming an Internal Quality Assurer, Thomas needed to be a fully qualified assessor and therefore needed to complete Unit 2 of the Assessor qualification.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
Wanting to become a fully qualified Assessor, Thomas was referred to Brooks and Kirk by his employer. At the time, he was working for a company of which we have a large cohort with.
Thomas said that the skills and knowledge he picked up during the course will definitely help with his new role. He will be doing more assessments in the workplace now as well as the internal vocational assessments.
He said the Unit 2 session was an eye opener, and he appreciate that he could complete the course at his own pace without the team pushing him, even during the pandemic.
Life after the Assessor Course
In the future, Thomas will looking to complete an Internal Quality Assurance course and keep heading towards the original goal of becoming an IQA.
“Really go for it. I felt that the help and assistance I got met everything I needed, you’re very friendly staff and kept in touch with me quite regularly. At the time, I appreciate we were going through COVID but nobody tried to push me, you let me go at my own pace. You took me on at my own pace and still got through it quickly in that respect.”
