An assessor can be a qualified member of the school staff or someone from outside your school (eg, a local college, private provider or Local Education Authority).

The responsibilities of assessors are to:

  • ensure that each learner is fully briefed on their assessment process
  • agree a learner support plan with each learner
  • assess the extent to which each learner's portfolio of evidence demonstrates the requirements of the relevant qualification standards
  • provide learners with individual prompt, accurate and constructive feedback
  • maintain accurate and up-to-date records detailing learner progress and agreed actions
  • meet with the internal verifier and other assessors to monitor agree and maintain standards.

Assessors should not compare one learner's performance with another's but rather be the guardians of the standards.
