This intensive 3-day course will further develop your assessor competencies and practical application through greater understanding of an organisation's context and strategic priorities. It will confirm your experience through team work and discussion forums, supported by a case study, enabling you to perform a close to real life assessment of an organisation applying for the Recognised for Excellence programme.
Day 1: you will consolidate the pre-course work on strategic priorities as a team, before looking at the importance of an organisation's context and stakeholders' expectations. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Fundamental Concepts and be able to use your knowledge of the Model and RADAR ©.
Day 2: you will focus on the practical application of assessment in the Site Visit: turning hypothesis into feedback; site visit planning and interviewing; understanding "Ability to Demonstrate"; writing the Executive Summary, Criterion Part feedback and RADAR © Scoring.
Day 3: you will learn how to compile the feedback report including strategic feedback on the Fundamental Concepts of Excellence, operational level feedback on criteriausing RADAR © scoring, and provide feedback to senior management during a closing meeting.

Who should attend
This course is suitable if you have passed the EFQM Assessor Training and wish to further develop your Assessor skills.
This course for experienced Assessors is far better than repeating another EAT course - real value in practicing the feedback compilation and delivery, much more realistic for an actual site visit.
Really enjoyed working with the small team who attended this course.
