“Traditionally my industry (hair and beauty) is not known for its strong IT Skills. I was amazed at how quickly my assessors adopted VQManager”. Carolyn Della-Ragione, Introtrain
Hair and Beauty qualifications can generate real challenges, when it comes to assessment.
These can include
- A lack of access to a computer within the salon environment,
- a general reluctance of individuals to embrace IT and
- the challenge of making sure the apprentice, their assessor and a suitable client are present simultaneously – no easy task!
So how do you better engage a learner community that’s often reluctant to use a PC?
You encourage them to use their own smartphone.
VQManager can be accessed via a user’s mobile device, and because the great majority of apprentices own, and actively enjoy using their mobile devices, you can immediately expect better engagement. Apprentices who are naturally reluctant to use a PC are often enthusiastic and proficient smart phone users.
Additionally, users don’t even need to access VQManager itself – simply using the device’s own camera and microphone, users can quickly and easily send rich evidence to their assessors.
