Assessor Training

The programme consists of two days of training, as well as the completion of workbooks and on-site observations in the workplace by an experienced National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Internal Quality Assurance Verifier from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). The qualification is delivered in two parts and each is certificated:

Level 3 Award in Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment
This embeds the underpinning knowledge required to undertake NVQ assessment. Candidates attend a one day course, complete a workbook and undertake a professional discussion with an Internal Quality Assurance Verifier.

Level 3 Award in Assessing Competence in the Work Environment
The candidates attend a second day of training and complete a workbook. Candidates are then supported and observed undertaking two NVQ candidates through their qualification, and complete their own assessor award.

Once the candidates complete the Level 3 awards they will be able to assess their own workforce, plus others, and utilise the HAE EHA NVQ Assessment Centre.

Course Cost
The cost of the programme, which includes on-going support from CITB's National Specialist Accredited Centre, is £1,000 plus VAT per person. Provided the assessor is willing to help the industry qualify candidates, as well as their own employees, this programme will be free to all businesses, including those not registered with CITB.
