Brooks and Kirk have over 20 years experience of successfully training people just like you to be NVQ Assessors and Internal Verifiers. We are considered by many to be THE premier trainer for NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier qualifications.Thinking of a career change? Been made redundant?Over the last 20 years we have helped literally hundreds of people change careers to become NVQ assessors and leave behind their unfulfilling jobs.There are currently more vacancies out there than there are assessors to fill them so maybe the time is right for you to make that jump to a far more satisfying, secure future.This is what one of our recent candidates wrote about their training with Brooks and Kirk

“Having completed NVQ levels two and three in health and social care I decided that I would like to become an assessor myself.I knew the training I had received with Brooks and Kirk for my awards was extremely good and as I had enjoyed a positive experience I approached them for my Assessor qualification. I was fortunate that Brooks and Kirk found two candidates for me, one online and one doing the paper award.I enjoyed the award immensely working with two marvelous candidates and working closely with the managers who made me most welcome and went out of her way to support me.As with any training undertaken outside of working I have had to be prepared to put in lots of extra hours to complete the award, however it has been worthwhile as I am now qualified and have just started working full-time as an assessor which I am enjoying.”
