You may have seen us posting recently about a new option for people looking to complete their Award in Education and Training (AET: the teaching qualification) and their Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA: the assessor qualification), meaning that they do both qualifications simultaneously. But why? Why are we encouraging people who are generally working full time with family and other life commitments to take on not one but TWO professional qualifications at the same time?! Here are some FAQs… 
You’ve got the skills to pass on; people have asked you to teach them and you’ve got a thriving social media page with likes and shares right, left and centre. But how do you turn your main business into a training centre? 
We’ve put together a brief guide on the type of things to consider if you think becoming a training centre is right for you and your business. 
If you're studying for the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, your Microteach is inevitable! Here are hints and tips so that it goes as smoothly as possible!  
We answer one of the most common questions from potential Award in Education and Training Students... 
Apart from our old faithful Award in Education and Training, the qualifications we are asked most about are the ones you need to be an assessor. Becoming an assessor has suddenly become very confusing. When I qualified in 2009 it was easy: you completed the A1 Award and all was well. If you search for Assessor qualifications on Reed today, though, you are met with hundreds of options with all sorts of titles. Some of the qualifications listed don’t even exist anymore so for this blog, we thought we would cut through the jargon and work out what is really needed if you want to be an assessor. 
Thank you for the continued positive comments about Ben's videos. Here's Ben's latest vlog, in which he reviews the lift in his home. Watch until the end when he goes up in the world... 
You never forget where you were when you found your first decorated rock. I was really excited when I found mine. I had to feign nonchalance because I was in the presence of a three-year-old and a one-year-old and I'm 35, but inside I was squealing. It was in Bromsgrove and we chose to rehide the rock in the same park in which we found it. Since then, I have found a grand total of three rocks.... but from the look of the Facebook page Worcestershire Love On The Rocks, there are thousands more to be found.  
Ben is esctatic about all of the views and comments on his first video and we have made this one for everyone who asked for more about Bob The Fish! It's also an opportunity to hear Sarah being slightly geeky about fonts.  
When writing some blurb for the new website, I was trying to work out how many CVs I had written over the years. It has to be around 1000. Even though I loved sifting through hundreds of CVs on an extremely regular basis, there were – and still are – some things that really got my goat. And if they got my goat, they will be getting other recruiters’ goats too. 
There are lots of CV guides out there. You can give your CV to five, ten or fifteen different people for an opinion and they will all say different things. The observations in this blog are based on almost twenty years’ experience of writing, reading and using CVs to recruit for positions I’ve needed to fill and apply for positions I’ve wanted to have. So, as with any guide, take the bits you like and ignore the bits you don’t….but these are very tried and tested!
