Success Stories

Embark on a rewarding journey from project management to shaping the next generation of project leaders. Our Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) has been a gateway for professionals seeking to transition their expertise into a career in teaching and assessing. Below are two success stories from our alumni who have made this leap, along with insights into other qualifications you could assess, the requirements for each, and a comprehensive FAQ section.

Erin Kirk

Erin, a dynamic professional with a decade of experience in IT project management, sought a career that combined her passion for project management with a desire to mentor and educate the next generation. Despite her extensive industry experience, Emily lacked formal qualifications in education and assessment, which were crucial for a career shift to teaching and assessing in a college setting.

Erin enrolled in the Level 3 Award in Education and Training followed by the Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA). These courses provided her with the essential skills and qualifications needed to transition into an educational role. The courses covered key areas such as planning and delivering instructional sessions, assessing learners in a work environment, and understanding principles of assessment.

 Upon completion, Erin successfully transitioned to a role as a project management assessor in a well-respected college. She now plays a pivotal role in shaping the curriculum and assessing the competency of students in project management courses. Her unique blend of industry experience and educational qualifications has made her an invaluable asset to the college. Erin's students have consistently achieved high pass rates, and she has been recognised for her innovative teaching methods and deep engagement with her students.

Ruby Roberts

Ruby with over 15 years of experience in construction project management, wanted to leverage her expertise to train and assess the next wave of professionals in the industry. Ruby's extensive practical experience in construction project management was undeniable, but she needed formal educational credentials to move into a role assessing apprenticeships in a private training provider.

Ruby pursued the Level 3 Award in Education and Training and the Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA), which equipped her with the necessary skills in pedagogy and assessment. These programs enabled her to understand the learning needs of apprentices and the methods of effectively assessing their skills and knowledge.

After completing her qualifications, Ruby secured a position with a leading private training provider, specialising in assessing apprentices in construction project management. Her combination of real-world experience and formal training qualifications has been instrumental in providing high-quality assessments. Ruby has developed a reputation for her hands-on approach and ability to connect theory with practical application, greatly enhancing the learning experience of her apprentices. Her contributions have led to increased pass rates and higher apprenticeship completion rates within the program.

After over 30 years of marketing experience and countless training courses, I finally had the opportunity to formally learn how to educate and train through The Education and Training Academy.

Having some previous teaching experience, but lacking the qualification I needed to start training formally accredited courses, I completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Training with Matt and the Education and Training Academy.From the beginning, the expectations needed to complete the qualification were laid out... brilliantly in the academy's resources, which really made the process of completing the portfolio as clear as possible. The taught days of the course were a really enjoyable experience, students came from a range of backgrounds and the trainer ensured everyone felt involved and able to share their experiences. Many of the learning methods discussed on the course were clearly demonstrated and we had some great group discussions which left me reflecting on new ways of improving my own teaching approaches. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to complete their Level 3 more
