Focusing on the workshop approach, this training would generally be carried out in a two day workshop.

In this workshop we cover:

  • Introduction to Competence
  • Organising and Preparing
  • Carry Out Assessments
  • Discussion and Questioning
  • Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Providing Feedback
  • Quality Assurance

Once your assessors complete the training workshops, they are then required to work through the rest of the qualification back at their workplace. Your assessors are supported throughout by a Polaris Learning consultant.

On successful completion of the qualification an SQA certificate is awarded.


This involves the provision of an online training process which includes the completion of formal knowledge assignments.  This would typically take one day to complete.

The online modules are:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Competence
  • Module 2: Organising and Preparing
  • Module 3: Carry Out Assessments
  • Module 4: Discussion and Questioning
  • Module 5: Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Module 6: Feedback
  • Module 7: Quality Assurance
  • Module 8: Qualification – What Next?

Following completion of the online modules and assessment planning, the learner completes the necessary work to generate the evidence required by the qualification back in their workplace.  This includes the assessment of two individuals.

We allocate each assessor with a Polaris Learning consultant who works closely with the learner. We build in a series of live webinars or on demand webinars to support the learning process. Client reporting is built in as standard so you can keep track of progress.

The duration of the programme can be organised to suit your requirements and we can facilitate the completion of this over a short or longer period of time.


We can also offer a combination of face to face, online and webinar support and this can be tailored to meet your requirements.
