Frequently Asked Questions
Questions regularly asked at the centre;
If I want to undertake an assessment without first completing any training, is this possible?
Yes. Training is not a pre-requisite of assessment.
What are the opening and closing times of the centre?
The centre is open from 08:30
We ask anyone attending a course to arrive at our centre no later than 08:45 on the first day of the course to ensure that they are signed in and have been provided with any relevant materials required for the course. Any training or assessments will commence from 09:00.
If the course is longer than one day you are required to arrive no later than 09:00 on the days following the first day.
The centre closes at 15:45
What if I do not finish my assessment and cannot make it back on the following day?
This situation would be assessed at that time and, if we are able to, we will invite that person back a few days later to complete the assessment.
What if I fail an assessment?!
Firstly the reason for failing the assessment will be discussed with the candidate. The situation will then be assessed and options provided to the candidate. It could be that further training may be required, it may be that the candidate just did not feel ready for the assessment. We always try to find a mutually agrreable course of action between both assessor and candidate.
Where can I get lunch?!
SWAAT can have food delivered to the centre on your behalf, provided you inform our administration staff of this request before 11:00a.m. on the day.
In addition to this there are a number of food outlets locally to the centre. (SWAAT also provide biscuits!)
