At Thomson Bridge, our instructional designers have the capability to improve existing client materials by adding resources to their training products or design resources to support a course from the ground up. We can supply a wide range of training course resources:


  • Student Guides – develop student guides for a specific course and deploy it electronically, paper-based or both depending on a clients needs.

Student Guides
Student guides provide information that reinforces the learning outcomes, objectives and teaching points of the relevant course of study. They can also include additional technical information and reference details including diagrams, drawings and images. Electronic versions can also host digital assets such as video and animation that support the student comprehending a process or technology. Student guides can also be customised to reference relevant business centric policies, procedures and processes.

  • Course Handouts – develop handouts for one-off use during course delivery or templates that a client can re-use as courses are conducted.

Course Handouts
Course handouts are designed to reinforce learning and engage students through interactive tasks and note taking. They can be designed so that each section of the handout can relate directly to a module of the course that has an exercise the student does to reinforce learning. They can also enable the student to follow the structure and flow of the course and take notes against all or some of the topic areas. Students may keep the handout as their personal reference.

  • Assessor Guides – build assessor guides to ensure the rules of evidence and principles of assessment are effectively and consistently applied to training programs. 

Assessor Guides
Assessor guides provide relevant information for assessors in the conduct of assessments for individual skills and knowledge against a single course or cover a curriculum more broadly. Assessor guides assist the individual assessors to consistently apply the principles of assessment (Fairness, Flexibility, Validity and Reliability) and the rules of evidence (Validity, Sufficiency, Authenticity, and Currency) when conducting the assessment. 

They can also provide guidance for the conduct of the assessment relevant to the workplace or classroom conditions that are used. Assessor guides are also a key tool in ensuring assessment processes meet regulatory requirements and for nationally recognised units to be compliant.


  • Assessment Forms – build assessment instruments to ensure effective and accurate assessment that collects sufficient evidence for client training programs. 

Assessment Forms
Assessment instruments can take many different forms with each one designed to meet the required performance standards and assessment conditions that enable the assessor to make a decision on the competency of an individual.

The assessment forms may be written theory examinations, verbal questioning instruction, a practical observation checklist, a project or task instruction with defined specifications, a scenario based playette with defined outcomes, and many more. The assessment instrument is technically designed to map back to all of the course objectives, allow assessors to record outcomes, provide feedback to candidates, and to be evidence of the assessment decision.

  • Presentations – design and develop presentation materials based on a client brief for training delivery, information briefs or marketing.

Thomson Bridge has a large array of skills and expertise from technical and industry knowledge to instructional and graphic design that can be used to assist in the development of high quality, targeted and effective presentation materials. Whether it is presentation materials for the delivery of a course or briefing or posters to reinforce teaching points in the workplace and everything in-between we can assist you.


All resources can be delivered in electronic or paper-based formats.
