How to improve training assessment accuracy


There is a need to demonstrate that the purpose of assessment is clear and meaningful for the learner, Dan Pinnell says

In most organisations, training and assessment is the key to setting targets for people to achieve, to gain qualifications, become more skilled, more productive and to better themselves.

We work with adults and young people not in education, training or employment (NEETs) often with no formal education qualifications such as Maths or English GCSEs and some people may struggle to even read or write.

For young people with no qualifications, training and assessment can often be life-changing in terms of providing people with their first ever acknowledged achievement in gaining a qualification. This in turn provides confidence and a feeling of self-worth as they take their first steps towards mapping out a future career path.

The training needs to be interactive and easy to deliver for the practitioner so the young people don’t lose interest, particularly as the training can range from sports education and qualifications through to foundation learning skills.

With computer, tablet and smartphone use in particular so high with young people a large part of the training is delivered online as it’s the environment in which they are most comfortable learning.

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
