Development Competence (Work-Based Assessment)

Our intention is that assessments and reviews in the workplace will take place face-to-face from Sept 2020, providing it is in line with the latest government guidance and is safe to do so.

Annual Leave

Wherever possible, annual leave should be taken during the pre-planned shutdown dates. This is to ensure learners are able to use their holiday allocations during their time with the AMRC Training Centre without impacting on their progress. This should be discussed and agreed by their employer in advance.
