The Assessor Coach is a dual professional using their knowledge and skills to support vocational and professional development across the Education and Training Sector (ETS) and other employer settings. They may coach and assess apprentices, trainees or new recruits at any level as well as vocational learners. Acs actively listen, provide feedback and engage learners in planning their individual learning programmes.
ACs work co-operatively with other ETS or other professionals eg teachers, HR professionals and mentors/supervisors in the development of learners’ competence, professionalism and employability.
Within the sector, ‘coaching’ is seen as a more complex set of interpersonal skills, compared with ‘mentoring’. It is more learner-centred, exploring the learner’s understanding and needs rather than simply giving advice.
