About this Course

This course is designed to equip students with the knowledge to begin their journey as an assessor. It is not industry-specific, but gives you a chance to understand more about the assessment process and allows professional development for managers and quality assurance personnel etc.

The Theory unit includes eight online modules covering all the essential principles and practices of assessment and quality assurance. Students will be required to complete an assignment and show understanding of how to plan an assessment. This assignment is made up of multiple questions, with each question linking to one of the modules the course covers. It is recommended that you complete the questions and submit them for marking after completing each module. Throughout the course support will be provided to you via regular contact with your tutor where you will have the opportunity to ask questions on a one to one basis.

Success Story

Sarah Woolveridge - The Beauty Parlour

I started at The Yorkshire College of Beauty last March on the Assessors Award Course, I looked at quite a few colleges for this but decided I’d go with YCOB as they had the best reputation.

"The course got off to a great start and I really enjoyed it! I loved being in college with the students plus the staff and tutors were so helpful during my time there. Things became tricky as we went into lockdown a while after I started but we keep in touch and I got back on track and completed it quickly as soon as they reopened. I also decided during my time there that I would like to take an apprentice for my salon from YCOB and it was the best decision! Alex has made an amazing therapist and I will certainly take students from YCOB again in the future."
