The assessor role has many facets which include maintaining a caseload of full time Further Education learners, supporting the learners to develop an understanding of the underpinning knowledge relating to the industry and also working alongside the employer to ensure that each learner receives opportunities to develop the skills required to demonstrate competency to meet and exceed the requirements of their qualification. Assessors are expected to utilise excellent time management skills to plan visits to settings to carry out observations and to provide support to the learner and also sometimes to the employer to ensure successful completion of the work placement aspects of the qualification.
It is important to be able to empower learners to be in control of their own learning which includes supporting them to plan for assessments and recognise their own development needs and be responsible for their own professional development. Effective communication skills are essential for this role as assessors liaise with a range of other staff who support the learner. Effective communication ensures that the learners complete and achieve their qualification within the tight timeframe we have.
