Make sure they have the tools and support they need to give them the best possible chance of passing the first time. Here’s what you need to do:
As an employer, you’ll need to sign the Readiness for Assessment Checklist before the candidate can undertake the assessment. You’ll have to confirm you’re happy they have the skills and knowledge needed under each section of the assessment. Reading through the checklist with your employee and training provider should highlight any gaps in training or any areas which they are uncertain of, which can be addressed prior to the assessment taking place.
You can also read more about each section of the assessment on our assessment pages:
Use the checklist as a working document throughout the training programme – you can see clearly which systems and equipment they’ll be tested on during the assessment so try to ensure they get some real-world experience of these. Between yourself and your training provider, try to ensure that each category of the checklist is covered and look at how to address any gaps.
