Workplace-based Assessment - 13 September 2024 - ONLINE

Effective Teaching Skills Workshop


A 1-day workplace-based assessment workshop that provides an overview of the assessment methods regularly used to assess performance in the workplace, and will help develop confidence in using them fairly and effectively.
