Bespoke Training for You


Many awarding organisations find that the rapid changes in qualifications mean that their staff teams need highly specialised training in particular areas of qualification and assessment development, or in effective awarding practices in order to support their strategic plan.

AlphaPlus has delivered assessment-related training to a range of organisations in the UK and internationally since 2006. Our customers include awarding bodies, ministries of education, regulatory authorities and professional bodies.

Our programmes are typically bespoke courses, with an emphasis on workshop and practical activity, delivered on site to awarding organisation staff teams. Training is delivered by senior staff and directors at AlphaPlus, who are able to draw on their extensive experience from supporting awarding organisations across the sector.

Our programmes are modular, which allows us to customise them to meet your requirements.

AlphaPlus offers a range of standard modules which are then customised to suit the needs of our customers. Topics include:

  • Qualification validity and reliability
  • Training on how item writing (e.g. multiple choice questions, higher order objective questions)
  • Grading and standard setting
  • Regulation and compliance for awarding organisations
  • Assessment and learning
  • Maths and English assessment
  • History of and current developments in vocational qualifications
  • Vocational qualification development

Training can be delivered at on site, or at an external location. Delegates receive a complete training pack comprising the materials covered, a handbook covering the subject, copies of the exercises, and a targeted reading list for further study.

Our expert assessment managers and training team will design a programme to suit your staff, your specific needs and your budget.
