Network Rail Stations use Assessor Upskilling Courses to improve safety

Network Rail approached AssessTech to provide Assessor Upskilling courses for station staff.

Network Rail manages 20 of the busiest stations across the UK. These include Birmingham New Street, Manchester Piccadilly, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central, Leeds, Liverpool Lime Street, and 11 managed stations across London. Safety is Network Rail’s number one priority, so finding solutions to reduce incidents and accidents for passengers and staff at their stations is of paramount importance.

Network Rail approached AssessTech to provide Assessor Upskilling courses for station staff.

The course focuses on laying the foundations and defining the key principles of assessing to enable individuals to assess properly to maintain and enhance competence management.

Candidates benefited from:

  • Gaining a full understanding of the key concept and principles of assessing
  • Getting right up to date with what and how assessing works in the workplace
  • Assessing practice sessions to underpin the learning
  • Understanding the impact of developmental feedback during assessments whilst understanding how to get the most out of these vital conversations.

The objectives of the course are to provide best practice in assessing and promote strategies to improve safety, reduce administration and ultimately prevent incidents and accidents through identifying risks.

Each assessment generates a plethora of data which Network Rail analyses and reviews for the purposes of sharing best practice, improving training and streamlining internal processes.
