The Certificate To Training Success
The Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA) is a program that provides the workforce in the Training and Adult Education Industry with the essential skills and knowledge to design and delivercompetency-based training programs and assessments.
Competency-based training programs focus on equipping individuals with the competencies to perform specific job tasks. In these programs, the individual’s competency is assessed using performance standards that are recognized by the industry.
These performance standards are based on a structured competency framework known as WSQ, or the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications. The WSQ system is a coherent and comprehensive development pathway that aims to enhance the workforce with vital industry and occupational skills to maintain the competitive edge and to ensure lifelong employability.
The ACTA program equips individuals with essential skills and knowledge to take on the roles of a curriculum developer, assessment developer, classroom trainer and/or assessor. It will also be able to enhance the skills of in-house training staff to develop and deliver on-the-job training programs and conduct assessments for the organization.
Management representatives overseeing WSQ training in organizations and training centers will also find the ACTA program very useful in helping them to assure quality in their training and assessment.
The program will be useful to:
- People who are moving into the training arena with little knowledge of the training field
- Full / Part-time In-house Trainers
- Line Leaders / Line Trainers
- Freelance Trainers
- Training Consultants
