The Institute of Directors is looking for an experienced assessor with particular skills in oral assessments and knowledge of professional qualifications to provide a one-day training workshop for a group of Chartered Director assessors.

IoD assessors deliver viva voce assessments using a standard set of questions and the candidate’s portfolio of experience. They would like the training to include the following:

  • an introduction to key principles of assessment
  • good practice in running oral/viva voce examinations
  • how to ensure consistent and fair assessments using this method
  • techniques for dealing with difficult conversations
  • how to achieve fair and reliable marking
  • approaches to standardisation

The training could include a role play, video or other interactive approach to bring the subject to life. Ideally, the training will be tailored specifically to the Chartered Director assessment.
