The NVQ Assessor qualification has recently changed from the NVQ Assessor A1 Award to the NVQ/QCF Assessor Certificate (or Award). This website brings together information for all people who are looking for NVQ Assessor training or courses, or are looking for NVQ Assessor jobs, whether they be part time or full time.
Anyone seeking NVQ Assessor jobs must still hold an NVQ Assessor qualification – while the A1 and D32/33 remain valid, all existing Assessors will have to update themselves on the new Assessor Standards, and all new Assessors will need to get the new NVQ QCF Assessor qualification – either the Certificate or the Award. See the NVQ Assessor qualifications page for more details.
The reason for the change of NVQ Assessor qualifications is that all NVQs have been ‘migrated’ into the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF). While most of the changes are simply changes to terminology, there are some significant changes to the way Evidence Requirements are laid out, and some clear distinctions are drawn between assessing in a vocational, and a non-work (training), setting. For more detail see the LLUK Guidance to Awarding Organisations.
