Frequently asked questions

  • I have never planned an assessment before, how will I know what to do?

    We provide you with all the forms you need, examples and a guide through the process.

  • What type of things can I assess?

    You can assess any subject all there needs to be is set criteria in place to allow you to assess against it.

  • Do you provide the candidates?

    Unfortunately we are unable to do this as you need to assess candidates in their workplace.

  • Will the assessor be an expert in my field?

    No, the assessor is only looking at your ability to assess against set criteria. They will ask your own internal verifiers or a manager to look at the evidence and provide a witness statement to say that the contents of the assessment was correct.

    Yes, we can always help and support you. Make sure you discuss any specific needs with your tutor who will be able to assist you with an individual plan, and provide any support that you need.
