Advice on becoming an NVQ Assessor
An NVQ assessor will support and assess learners written and hands-on practice; they help students gain their qualification they are training for. NVQ assessors will work closely with the candidate, arrange times to come out and observe them in the working environment. They will provide feedback to both the candidate and the workplace. NVQ assessors will adhere to the standards they are given by the awarding body. It can also be the NVQ assessors responsibility to take training workshops and programmes.
