Assessment practitioner workshops

Build and develop your practice

Focusing on important elements of assessment design and practice, our assessment practitioner workshops are short, sharp sessions designed to fit seamlessly around your work commitments.

You will gain principled knowledge and the techniques to build and improve your practice and the resources you take away will support you in applying your learning to your own context, continuing your development long after the workshops have ended.

What if I have booked a workshop series and I can’t attend one of the sessions?

The workshop series have been designed to be taken consecutively and each session builds on the learning from the last, with lots of interactive elements. Therefore to get the most out of the them, it is important to attend the live sessions. However, in the event that you are unable to attend one of the sessions, a recording will be made available. To receive a certificate, you can only miss one session out of a workshop series.

Are the assessment practitioner workshops CPD accredited?

Courses that are CPD accredited are clearly marked with the number of CPD hours available, and a full list can be found on the CPD Standards website. As some of the workshops are new additions to our offering, they have not yet been accredited by the CPD Standards Office. However, as an assured provider of training excellence, all workshops meet the same high standards of all our training.

How can I access the resources during and after the series?

The workshops will be hosted on Class Collaborate and you will be sent a link and instructions on how to access them a couple of days prior to the first session. All sessions will be recorded and made available after the series along with a PDF copy of the slides and extra learning resources.

What kind of certification is available upon completion of the courses?

You will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance from Cambridge Assessment which includes the University of Cambridge Board of Executive and Professional Education logo, and the CPD logo where applicable. To receive a certificate, you can only miss one session out of a workshop series.

I want to sign up a group of colleagues. How can I do this?

Please contact to discuss group bookings. We can also deliver these workshops, and a number of others, on an on-demand basis. You can find out more on our Your CPD programme page.

What happens after I’ve booked my place?

You will receive an email confirmation of your booking and payment. Two days prior to the workshop commencing you will be given joining instructions and a link to access the sessions.
