Competence Management for a Safer Railway
AssessTech is a technology and training company specialising in all aspects of Competence Management for the Railway Industry. We believe in Developmental Competence Management, which is a continuous process that achieves lower business risk and a reduction in incident rates through targeted training and development of people.
We supply hosted systems and services to Train Operating Companies, giving them better visibility of their competence related data, which along with complementary training and consulting, means they are better able to assess risk, manage incidents and target spending accordingly.
AssessTech offers three products, ACMS, AssessBook and AssessTube; each is designed to work individually or together to help you manage competence effectively. These are all delivered as fully hosted and managed systems.
An online learning and development platform, where you can host electronic courses and track learner progress.
Developmental Competence Management
This is at the heart of everything AssessTech does. It’s the basis of our approach to helping make the Railway a safer place.
Developmental Competence Management is all about putting the candidate front and centre of the process, focussing on their needs and encouraging them to own their own competence.
By using a grading system and focussing on areas for improvement Assessors can inspire Candidates towards professional and personal development and gain huge benefits for the business along the way.
AssessTech are pioneers of this approach – find out all about it by reading our blog article.
Interactive Training Aids
An series of interactive tabletop simulations, played in the style of board games.
We use these kits when we deliver training but they are also available as products to purchase as an addition to your in-house courses.
The Incident Recovery kit
This a really great way to train learners in how to respond to an incident, prevent escalation and maintain a good company reputation. It's been developed by AssessTech as a training aid for roles such as:
- Train Operator Liaison Officer (TOLO)
- Station Incident Officer (SIO)
- Rail Incident Commander (RIC)
The Incident Cause kit
The incident cause model is often misunderstood or misused by those undertaking investigations. We have developed the Incident Cause Kit as both a training aid for new investigators and a standardisation tool for stimulating discussion amongst more experienced practictioners.
It's a fun, friendly competition to 'beat' your colleagues and score points - guaranteed to cause a heated debate!
