Our prices are highly competitive – starting at £595+VAT per head for the Level 3 Assessor Certificate (formerly the A1) for groups of 4 or more.  You will get qualified and productive as an Assessor quickly – as your time is money, this makes our rates even more attractive – see our Prices and Discounts.

Since 2012 there has been a choice of Assessor qualifications – the Award or the Certificate.  The Certificate is the only of these qualifications that qualifies you to assess in both work and training environments.   We recommend the Certificate, as it is the higher qualification and the equivalent of the old A1.  See our FAQ section on the RQF Assessor qualifications.

Testimonials next prev

  • "I would like to thank NVQ Assessor Training Direct, especially my Tutor, for their excellent training and support. The friendliness and flexibility of my assessor/trainer was invaluable as he was able to fit in with my needs and requirements. I thoroughly enjoyed the Training Day as it was very relaxed and extremely informative. I was put at great ease during the assessment which enabled me to complete an excellent assessment. I completed my portfolio within a few weeks with no difficulties as the ongoing support was fantastic. Since completing the NVQ Assessor qualification I have recently been shortlisted from 20+ candidates to the last 6 for an assessor position which again ATDirect gave me continued support even after achieving the NVQ Assessor Award."

    CATRIN WILLIAMS, Child Care Provider

  • “The one-to-one training Assessor Training Direct provided was friendly and relaxed, and was clear and easy to follow. The training was backed up with excellent support during completion of the portfolio. All in all I was extremely happy I chose NVQ Assessor Training Direct as my NVQ Assessor qualification training provider... I would absolutely recommend using them.”

    CHEF, 5 Star Hotel

  • “I just wish I’d been in touch with NVQ Assessor Training Direct before - so many other providers of NVQ Assessor qualification courses weren’t able to explain the course or how long it would take - it all seemed so difficult to get going until I spoke to Assessor Training Direct. Then, once I’d started the course, the training and support were brilliant.”


  • “So much more straightforward than I thought it would be – NVQ Assessor Training Direct bent over backwards to fit the training in around my work schedule. The NVQ Assessor Training Direct Tutor broke down all the NVQ jargon so clearly... 10 out of 10 for quality and value for money : ) I got my first paid work as an NVQ assessor before I'd even finished the course.”


  • "I wanted to obtain a professional assessors' qualification to use in the workplace and also develop my role as a National Coach Tutor in Martial Arts. I used ATDirect's fast-track course. The course was very well planned. We got straight on with learning and actually doing a learner assessment. The portfolio was well structured and organised in easy-to-follow modules. I fully endorse ATDirect for those wishing to learn all about assessing and gain this reputable NVQ Assessors' Certificate." May, 2015

    TONY BROWN, Martial Arts Coach

  • "I completed the course early in 2015 with Kevin and couldn't be happier. On the day everything was explained to me thoroughly about the course and how it works, I learnt so much about the whole assessing process and all the different things involved. After completing the day course I felt fully confident in completing the portfolio for me to gain my qualification. It was so much easier than I thought I would more than recommend it to anyone that is thinking about it. I really liked the fact the support was there 24/7 if you needed it and that the responses were quick." June, 2015

    REBECCA HUGHES, Beauty Therapist

  • My company engaged Assessor Training Direct to deliver Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement, to myself and several management and supervisory level colleagues. The course prep materials and all communication before the day and after were excellent, I felt we were well briefed and prepared for the start of the course. Kevin Wooff, our trainer, made the day an enjoyable and effective learning experience. The portfolio was well organised and easy to work through, and once completed was assessed very quickly. I would thoroughly recommend Assessor Training Direct." January, 2016


  • I found the 1 day, one-on-one course very interesting. Sometimes you think you know a thing or two about training, but then suddenly you realise and appreciate how you fit as an individual in the bigger scheme of things. Seeing the wider picture and structure of the whole process, gives you a better understanding, and the insight to be able to apply yourself in Training/Assessment and above all strive to be a professional in your subject area, never accepting that there isn’t room for improvement, because there always is. Really felt like I got something out of it." April, 2016

    RICHARD RICHMOND, DIRECTOR, ECS Gas Training North East Ltd

  • Excellent informative course, friendly helpful tutor, small group, easy portfolio completion. Would recommend to anyone wanting to do the Assessors or IV course. One of the best courses I have been on." April, 2016

    LYN HICKEY, Fitness Instructor

  • The session was more relaxing than I was expecting. The atmosphere throughout was conducive to learning." June 2016
