The Goldsmiths' Centre Training Day - Assessor Training Direct Training Course March 2017

Goldsmiths’ Centre Training Day, March 2017

Fantastic training day with The Goldsmiths’ Centre. Great engagement, interesting input and lovely people.  Thank you for a great day!


Since 2012 there has been a choice of Assessor qualifications – the Award(s) or the Certificate:

  • Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement
  • Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment
  • Level 3 Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement
  • Level 3 Award in Understanding Principles and Practice

The Certificate is the only qualification that qualifies you to assess in both work and training environments using a full range of assessment methods.  We, therefore, recommend the Certificate, as it is the higher qualification and the equivalent of the old A1.
