We know that ITOs do not deliver training, but they do arrange training through employers, PTEs and ITPs. Assuming the PTEs and ITPs use the Assessment Tool for pre and post assessments, do ITOs also need to be using the Assessment Tool to assess learners? Not necessarily. 

ITOs need to understand whether the training they arrange is appropriate for their learners' literacy, numeracy and vocabulary skills and knowledge. This is particularly for ITOs that arrange embedded training programmes. They can monitor whether these programmes are strengthening learners' literacy and numeracy skills.

To avoid over assessment it is possible for an ITP or PTE to view an assessment result completed for the ITO, with the learner's permission.
