If you have experience within the construction industry and are looking to become an Assessor, then you may want to keep reading. The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) have recently announced they are funding a £600,000 programme to help people to become qualified on-site training Assessors. The idea behind this project is to increase the number of construction workers holding nationally recognised qualifications.
Who Is This Designed For?
On-site training assessments are designed to allow construction workers who have the skills, experience and training to become qualified in their roles. Assessors are responsible for visiting learners at construction sites and testing their skills in the workplace. As long as all the criteria are met, then the learner will be awarded a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ).
Assessors will be recruited across a range of curriculum areas, including: carpentry & joinery, brickwork, painting & decorating, interior systems, timber frame erection, floorcovering, roof slate & tiling, wall & floor tiling, stone masonry, wood machining & plastering.
This programme is perfect for qualified tradespeople who may be seeking a career change, but have lots of industry experience. Assessors will be helping to support the industry’s future workforce by applying their current skills and experience to assess apprentices on site. They will also be responsible for ensuring qualifications are delivered to the very highest standards, and comply with internal and external awarding policies.
Becoming an Assessor can be incredibly rewarding, particularly as you are helping to shape the next generation of talent. By working with young apprentices, you will be working with them to help gain their qualifications and become skilled in their relevant trades. It is the perfect opportunity for experienced industry professionals to use the knowledge, skills and behaviours they have learnt over the years in order to help others become qualified.
More Secure Future
Not only will this scheme help to future-proof the construction industry, it will also help to attract talent to help fill the current skills gap. Having specific work-place Assessors will mean there is a high level of consistency with the work being carried out. An approach that will benefit both the apprentices and businesses alike as the quality of work will be extremely high.
