The Government is committed to developing vocational skills, and to increasing the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships. It has committed to an additional 3 million Apprenticeship starts in England by 2020 and introduced reforms, such as the Apprenticeship Levy. The Apprenticeship Levy is a tax on large UK employers with a pay bill of over £3 million per annum. These Employers will be required to pay 0.5% of their annual payroll into the Levy and these funds will be used to pay for new Apprenticeships.
These changes mean new opportunities as one of the key roles within the delivery of apprenticeships is that of the assessor. The assessor can provide on-programme assessment for the provider or employer to track the apprentices’ competence and progress, gather feedback and check readiness for final-end point assessment.
The end-point assessment takes place on completion of the apprenticeship and will test that the apprentice is fully competent and able perform in their occupation.
This must be independent of, and separate from, the training delivered by the provider or employer. This move to independent end-point assessment also creates new opportunities for assessors, with Awarding Organisations recruiting suitable, qualified people to become independent end-point assessors.
In order to become either an on-programme or end-point, assessor you will need work experience and a Level 3 qualification or NVQ in the sector you plan to assess. You will also need to hold an Assessor Qualification
