A simple question which, unfortunately, doesn’t have as much of a simple answer. That’s because the requirements to become an Assessor can vary depending on the qualification or even the organisation. However; we’re here to make it clear to you – because whilst the answer isn’t super simple, it’s not rocket science.
What Do I Need?
In most scenarios, what you will need is:
- Occupational Competence
- An Assessor Qualification
Now, this is where it can get a little bit complicated, as there are in fact 4 different Assessor qualifications. All 4 of these are made up of at least 1 of the following units:
- Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment (Unit 1)
- Assess Occupational Competence in the Work Environment (Unit 2)
- Assess Vocational Skills, Knowledge and Understanding (Unit 3)
Consequently, the more units that are in a qualification, the more competent you will become in Assessing.
This blog on FENews, ‘Qualifications Needed To Become An Assessor‘ written by Brooks and Kirk’s Marketing Manager Sam, explains each and every unit and qualification perfectly.
