EOI - CMTO Validation Activities

CBAA Communications, 2nd May 2019
The Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO) are inviting Expressions of Interest from trainers to participate in our Pre-Assessment Quality Assurance Process and Post-Assessment Validation of various accredited course materials.
  • For Pre-Assessment Quality Assurance, you will review the Trainer Guide and the Resource Book, giving input on assessments, session plans and resources.
  • For Post-Assessment Validation will meet with the Head Trainer, reviewing student work and making sure that there is consistency in both assessor marking and student results. You will also provide feedback on assessments, session plans and resources.

The courses currently scheduled for Validation activities are listed here.
