who should be trained?

+ Demonstrate an understanding of Outcomes Based Assessment and how it should work.
+ Analyse and evaluate source documentation to determine if it is adequate, relevant and valid.
+ Prepare for Assessment, ensuring that all the elements necessary to complete the process are in place.
+ Provide feedback on Assessments in a way that ensures the learner is fully informed on his or her performance.
+ Review Assessments so that the organisation can be sure that the process is being applied consistently.

You should also ideally be employed in a junior management role so that you can relate your learning practically to your workplace (although this is not essential and many complete successfully while not working).

Access to real work examples of materials, policies and documents created in the ETD space will be advantageous as it will shorten the time to completion and provide supporting evidence of competency.

In addition, learners need to be proficient in English at National Senior Certificate level.

A good level of computer literacy is also an advantage.
Learners are assessed using a Portfolio of Evidence (PoE). Sage Business Academy (CourseZA Partner) has set formative activities around video clips and presentations quizzes and exercises with assignments that are completed over the duration of the qualification. You complete these assessments in your own time. This portfolio will be assessed by a registered assessor and feedback will be provided.

Learners who successfully complete the portfolio of evidence will be awarded a skills programme certificate of competence with the unit standard and credits achieved listed

Blended e-Learning platform


We offer accredited assessor training for those who are truly interested in skill development and career pathing. Our training can be accessed 24/7: 365 days of the year.


There are live e-tutorials each week to give you an opportunity to engage with your e-lecturer in real time.  You will have the same number of contact hours as a learner who completes the training in a classroom, just you will have more flexibility.


The course material is a combination of e-learning and pre-recorded e-lectures that you work through systematically in your own time, at your own place and in your own space. You can repeat any lesson or video at any time, which is impossible to do in class.  This means you can review difficult concepts slowly and often for deeper learning and insight.

Technology Requirements

Learners must have a PC or tablet (or smart phone, but this could be too small for effective learning) with sufficient internet connectivity to download the online learning materials and view videos.
