Assessments Within Health & Social Care

The Health & Social Care Assessors course can help successful candidates move away from direct care, to an assessor role, where you will help others through a learning pathway. Upon completion candidates can start a new job as an NVQ assessor for private institutions and colleges.

Assessing Within Care

Becoming an assessor is mainly administrative role, with good rates of pay, which has the potential to reignite people's enthusiasm for the care industry. Job roles include looking after a portfolio of candidates on NVQ courses, carrying out observations and marking written work.


Gaining the qualification is made straightforward with our two day classroom based course with an additional observational visit within the workplace.

The initial two classroom days can be completed at our training locations in London, Manchester or Birmingham. Phil, Martyn or Richard will guide you through the entire theoretical unit within these two days. Candidates are also given a folder to complete with tracking documents and templates.

One of the teaching team will then arrange a third day where they will come out and observe you carrying out an assessment on a learner within a care setting. Your folder is also checked to ensure all the necessary assessments have been completed. Please click here for the full course information.

The final step is to sign the folder off and we award successful candidates with the Level 3 certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (A1).

How About Teaching?

Why not boost your CV by also holding a formal teaching qualification. The level 3 Award in Education & Training qualification allows successful candidates to potentially teach on NVQ care courses. Holding both certificates together ticks all the boxes and can be a real door opener for a new career.
