    Career    Becoming an Assessor  


Assessing can be a the most rewarding career as you share the  wealth of knowledge and experience of best practices you have amassed from your  working life with learners to enhance their understanding and skills set. This  job is perfect for those who prefer flexible working hours to work around family and social commitments.

The first step towards becoming an  assessor involves completing the Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA) qualifications we offer, we also  recommend taking up a teaching qualification to improve career prospects in the  lifelong learning sector. The TAQA courses replace the A1 and V1, assessor and  verifier awards and will help you get qualified to gain entry into assessor  roles.

The assessing qualifications  options include:

  • Level 3  Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment (3 credits)
  • Level 3  Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment (9 credits)
  • Level 3  Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement (9 credits)
  • Level 3  Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (15 credits)

The TAQA qualification will help  develop your competencies and knowledge of the principles of assessment and how  to improve assessment practices within an organisation. The qualification can  take up to 6-12 months depending on  your availability. The course can be delivered either at our offices or through  distance learning options.
For more information on the qualifications  and a full price list please contact us.

Qualified assessors with competencies  to deliver NVQ/QCF frameworks following industry standards are an asset and  highly sought after by these organisations; to train employees and apprentices  to improve their skills.
