14 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: Continuum for Independent Assessment 25%-30% On-programme assessment Timing and nature of on-programme assessment potentially employer and/or sector specific such as current trade tests On-programme assessment + synoptic assessment = competence

15 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: From employer assessment to an employer-led assessment system Authentic assessment needs to be valid, reliable, manageable (internal assurance), and When the public purse contributes there needs to be general public assurance and confidence around: – Rigour – Comparability across assessment decisions and outcomes – Comparable over time (so standards of competence remain consistent) Ofqual manages this for the supply-driven model of VET Our approach is to secure a demand-led (employer-led) model.

16 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: Characteristics of industry-led assessment Formative & Summative Credibility Integrity Productivity & Quality

17 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: Why are Energy and Utilities employers excited by independent assessment? ‘Own’ assessment mechanisms, processes and procedures Streamline assessment of apprenticeships by using trusted industry practice as ‘The’ practice (Trade Tests, Authorisations) ‘Own’ occupational standards by sharing IPR through employer-leadership Allow qualification market place to develop around customer service and quality of resources and support not assessment and quality assurance Strip out duplication and unnecessary service provision (and associated cost) around assessment

18 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: What will employer-led independent assessment look like? Develop and ‘own’ occupational standards for employers and the sector Provide assurance around employer assessment for businesses of all sizes Ensure consistency and comparability in assessment practice across and between employers Ensure standards of competence are maintained over time Provide public assurance of value and impact of public investment Establish a talent pool of competent workers for both asset owners and their supply chains

24 W: E: Twitter.com/The_EEIP LinkedIn: A radical approach to workforce skills The EEIP is committed to employer ownership for skills development: For the stock of their existing workforce For the flow of young people into their workforce The EEIP recognises that employer ownership is not without its challenges: This is paradigm shift from supply-driven to demand-led There are many established vested interests in established positions Employers do not have a tradition of speaking with one voice Competition rather than collaboration has been the tradition. By investing in talent the Partnership intends not only to solve its skills shortages, but also to create jobs and help the whole economy
