Mainstream's assessors deliver qualifications across a 24 hour shift pattern and across a 7 day week, this is to ensure every person has access to an assessor.
The qualifications are mainly delivered on site, at the customers premises. This allows for minimal disruption. The Assessors/tutors will be required to observe the candidate/s whilst they are conducting their job role in a real work environment.
The delivery process may include classroom tuition during the programme and this will be discussed with all parties. Assessors/tutors will be required to produce portfolios of evidence, which will require the answering of questions, observations of competence and various other methods to produce portfolios of evidence.
All candidates must undergo an induction to commence the programme. This can be done within the workplace or at Mainstream premises.
Each candidate will be allocated a dedicated Assessor who will work with them on an individual basis through the qualification.
Programme time-frames can vary dependant on the employer and candidate requirements. Each party will be kept informed of the progress towards achievement.
