  • 1 day training course
  • 4 practical assessments – the first assessment takes place on the training course day.
  • Gather evidence for your Portfolio of Evidence (with our personal support as required).

How is the Course Assessed?

If getting qualified is a priority for you, it is possible to be certificated 3 weeks after you’ve completed the 1 day training course.

There are 3 other Assessor qualifications:

  2. A 2-unit award which covers assessing in a work environment only
  3. A 2-unit award which covers assessing in a training environment only

We recommend the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (the 3-unit qualification) because it covers all of the above and will equip you to assess in different environments and using a wide range of assessment methods.  However, if you wish to pursue one of the above, please contact us for further details.

WHAT OUR YOUTH WORK CLIENTS SAY

 

“I have undertaken a number of qualifications with AT Direct Ltd around assessments and quality assurance processes whilst working for the NYA Academy and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Staff members were not only approachable and excellent communicators but they took time to understand my work setting within youth work training. This enabled me to engage with the courses in a much more bespoke way that embedded my learning within my own practice and to assess and quality assure learners work and submissions in a much more effective way.”
