Are you passionate about lifelong learning, looking to change career or use the knowledge you have in your industry to help others?

An Assessor or End Point Assessor course is the first step for anyone looking to diversify their skills.

An Assessor's role is to support and assess people working towards vocational qualifications, ensuring that they meet the occupational standards needed to achieve their qualification. They may also carry out End Point Assessments for standard apprenticeships. There is a high demand for Independent Assessors to carry out Standard apprenticeship End Point Assessments with the knowledge and understanding of specific industries.

You do not have to have worked in the education sector previously, to become an assessor. Technical experts who become assessors, provide up to date high-quality industry expertise and many people go into the sector because they want to help other people to achieve their potential.

Benefits of becoming an Assessor/End Point Assessor:

Flexible Hours and Location

As an assessor there are opportunities for permanent full/part time roles and associate roles, allowing you full flexibility to achieve your desired work life balance.

Meet New People

You will work with students from many employer organisations backgrounds. You will need to understand their capabilities and ensure they are prepared to progress, which can be one of the most rewarding aspects of the role. You will also work alongside assessors in other subject areas, so it is a great way to network and share good practice.

Continuing CPD and Progression

Working as an assessor you will build a range of skills to add to your CV. You may pursue further learning to become an expert in a particular area. To enable you to progress to other roles within education and quality assurance, such as staff mentor, End Point Assessor for Apprenticeships or becoming an Internal or External Quality Assurer.

Testimonial

"I have been an assessor for 18 years, an IV/IQA for 15 years, and didn’t think I had much to learn from a EPA course. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The approach and methodology is very different, and the implications of bad practice are huge. This is a well-structured, insightful programme and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking the step into End Point Assessing’.
