AssessTech is a certified City & Guilds centre offering training and qualifications in a broad range of subjects.
We deal with subjects related to Competence Management and the railway industry more generally.
In addition to courses resulting in City and Guilds Accredited Qualifications (Awards and Certificates) we also offer non-accredited training programmes, a bespoke training programme design service and some cool training aids.
A BESPOKE SERVICE
At AssessTech we specialise in tailor-made training. All of our courses are built, designed, and implemented using your company standards and to meet your requirements. This is what makes us unique.
We provide trainers who have industry experience, spanning a multitude of roles. Using dynamic material and innovative methods, we strive to always stand out from the crowd by being:
We also undertake risk-based training needs analysis (RBTNA), design trainer-led courses and implement eCourses. We will deliver high-quality and professional slides, short films, voice recordings, podcasts, handouts, workbooks and anything else you might need to make your bespoke training programmes a success.
Contact us to find out more – we’d be delighted to hear from you.
At AssessTech we offer both accredited and non-accredited training courses. The Awards are accredited and result in a Non-Vocational Qualification (NVQ) from the City and Guilds for each candidate and the others result in a certificate of achievement from AssessTech.

INTERACTIVE TRAINING AIDS
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 and we have just launched new online versions to support remote training too.
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)
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!
ONLINE VERSIONS OF THE GAMES
Following recent developments with Coronavirus and the need to socially distance, we are now delivering all of our training remotely using video conferences. As part of this we have made online versions of the games that can be played remotely.
Play the videos below to see what they are like, or why not book yourself on one of our FREE sessions.

REMOTE AND IN-PERSON TRAINING
We can deliver our whole training course portfolio either in-person at your facilities or remotely using online video conferencing software (Zoom or Teams).
Both approaches have their advantages – its a matter of customer choice. However, we have invested in technology and worked hard to ensure the experience is equivalent for all the learners regardless of the method of delivery. We’ve even made online versions of our interactive training aids, so delegates can still get the benefit of gamification whilst attending online. There are some video snippets of online game play below.
We are currently conducting all course final assessments remotely via a video call and this has allowed us to maintain course prices for our customers in spite of rising costs.
