The Inspiring our Assessors conference was organised by B-wbl and held at Parc y Scarlets. Attended by almost 200 assessors from over ten training providers from across mid, south and west Wales, the conference gave assessors the opportunity to network and share best practice with colleagues working for different organisations within the Consortium.
To launch the event, Bernie Hayward, Her Majesty’s Inspector of Education and Training in Wales, gave his final presentation on the current position and challenges in work-based learning before retiring after several years at Estyn. This was followed by sessions on integrating the Welsh language, ESDGC and literacy and numeracy.
Throughout the event there were opportunities for assessors to share their Brave New Ideas which included the integration of digital technology to improve the learner experience. There was also a learning fair which was a fantastic networking opportunity for assessors and the chance to share good practice and learning resources between providers.
