If you have been pondering over the idea of taking an Assessor qualification, but you just aren’t sure if it is the right move, this blog could be just what you need. Many people turn to assessing because they want to help train others and watch them achieve their potential. It is an extremely rewarding career path, but let’s have a look into some of the other reasons you should choose to take an Assessor qualification.
Yes, we harp on about keeping your CPD (Continued Professional Development) record up to date quite a bit, but for good reason – it is important! When you work in assessment, you build up a range of skills, particularly time management and communication skills. Add these new skills to your CV! It is also a good opportunity to identify any gaps you have in your knowledge, and any steps you need to take in order to become an even better Assessor.
Becoming an Assessor will give you more flexibility and freedom when it comes to both location and working hours. Life as a freelance Assessor will give you the work-life balance that you have always dreamed of. Whether you are returning to work after having a child, or are looking for a different career path, consider assessing. You can set your own schedule, and only work part-time if you like.
You Fancy A Change
Sometimes we get to a certain age and just decide that the office 9-5 isn’t for us. Very few people actually do something about it though. If you have spent all those years stuck in an office, you might just need a change. You can stay in a sector that you know and understand, but just take a slightly different direction and Assess within that area.
Of course moving up the pay scale is a huge motivator for anyone to become an Assessor. If you are aiming for a promotion, taking an Assessor qualification will certainly help you. Whether you already work in management, or are looking to become a freelancer, the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement is the qualification for you.
Meeting New People
One of the main reasons lots of people turn to assessing is because they get to meet such a variety of people. Being an Assessor definitely isn’t a lonely job! You get to assess students from all different paths of life, and within a variety of different job roles. One morning you could be assessing someone at a construction site, and in the afternoon you could be in a classroom. It is an extremely rewarding role, as you watch and help your students progress through their qualifications.
