The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme
Silver Award Examiner Assessment Course
Sunday 22nd May 2016
Venue: Ditton Community Centre. Kilnbarn Road, Aylesford, Kent, ME20 6AH
(Delegate Numbers are Limited)
Aim & Eligibility
The aim of this Examiner Assessment Course is to provide a route to examine the Good Citizen Dog Scheme Silver Award level. Candidates must have passed the Bronze Award Assessment to take part on this course. The course fee will be £50 which includes refreshments and delegate notes.
The itinerary has been designed to give candidates an opportunity to be assessed as an Examiner on the Scheme’s procedures at Silver level. The course will consist of a comprehensive presentation of the Scheme’s standards, a written examination and practical assessment. The written examination will be in the form of a multiple choice paper, from which candidates will be required to gain a 75% pass mark.
During the practical assessment sessions, candidates will be asked to take control of a class as a Scheme Examiner would during a test situation. Candidates will need to demonstrate ability to recognise and apply the Scheme standards in various scenarios, make decisions and provide feedback to dog handlers.
The course will be confirmed upon receipt of your application form but it is likely it will commence at 9.15am and will conclude at approximately 6.00pm. As there is a full itinerary, candidates who wish to attend must ensure they are able to commit themselves for the duration of the course. This course fee includes delegate notes and refreshments throughout the day. Lunch is not provided; delegates are advised to bring a packed lunch.
Candidates who attend the course and successfully achieve a ‘pass’ grade will be approved to examine the Silver Award and placed on the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme 'A2' Examiner list. Results of the assessment will be given at the end of the course day and successful candidates will receive a certificate of confirmation.
