Course Overview

The broad purpose of this occupation is to assess candidates against agreed standards of competence using a range of assessment methods.  The learning and skills assessor will plan, conduct assessment activities and record and report on assessment decisions to the learner and other relevant stakeholders. They will support the progression of the learner through feedback of assessment decisions, setting of ongoing realistic learning goals and referral to other professionals if required. They will contribute to the quality cycle of the organisation and actively contribute to standardisation and moderation of assessment decisions. The learning and skills assessor will be committed to their own continual professional development to maintain occupational competency in their sector.  They will typically work in an environment in their organisation where they are assessing competency.
