The course is assessed by an on-the-day assessment which includes a leadership intervention that the delegate is planning to undertake. This is handed in at the end of the delivery day. The assessment can be either handwritten or typed.
The assessment is in the form of reflective statements which will be undertaken throughout the course. The reflective statements are designed to show how the delegate’s knowledge, skills and behaviours may have both positive and negative effects on the health and safety performance of their organisation.
The qualification is delivered over one day of tuition. Before the course delegates have to undertake some pre-course study (which should take about 3 hours).
It can be delivered both by online/remote learning (using Zoom) or face-to-face.
