Your organisation could be in any industry; from Electrical Engineering, to Early Years, Business Admin, or even Equine… the qualification your staff need to become in-house assessors is the same – the CAVA.

The CAVA course is an industry standard qualification. So just like you get a Level 3 NVQ in Customer Service, this is a Level 3 NVQ in Assessing. What this means is regardless of your area of expertise, if you’re looking to become a fully-qualified assessor, it’s the CAVA you need.

At Brooks and Kirk, because so much of our course is delivered online AND we can provide access to learners to assess as part of the course; it doesn’t matter what sector your organisation is from or where you are based, we can help you.
