The National Examining Board for Supervisory Management now has a new award which has received recognition from NCVQ at Management Level 4. NEBSM Centres across the country have been assessing competences routinely for some time, and their findings have proved invaluable in helping to diagnose the learning needs of students, identify procedures for the training of workplace assessors, and contribute to the refinement of NEBSM procedures for the monitoring of workplace assessment. Covers the experience of these Centres in introducing a competence‐based programme including some of the problems they have faced. It also presents certain issues to be considered by Centres thinking of offering competence‐based programmes, including the necessity for training of college tutors, the necessary increase in marketing activity, and the high costs involved with running this type of course.
