The Assessor Verifier Awards enable you to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out work-based assessments or internal verification as well as providing support to existing assessors.
The qualifications are recognised by leading industry bodies and is delivered at your workplace through distance learning.
What You Study
Candidates undertaking these awards should aim for completion of each unit within 6 months, however, the time taken will depend on your job role and the progress of their learners. Initial induction will be given for each of the 3 units followed by individual assessor support to build up a portfolio of evidence. The assessor will visit the workplace for the purpose of observing your competent performance. Support will be through meetings, email and using the Virtual Learning Environment, iLearn.
You will be encouraged to create an action plan and set realistic targets for completion of each of the units being undertaken.
