NVQ assessors needed – east and south east England

IfA urgently needs more NVQ assessors to assess Level 3 candidates in the east and south east of England. To train as an NVQ assessor, you need to be occupationally competent (defined as having worked in the occupational area you plan to assess for at least two years within the last five) and to undertake an Assessors’ qualification. Qualifying as an NVQ assessor will take on average 6 months, depending on the amount of time you have to commit to the process. Once qualified, assessors are paid a fee of £630 per candidate through the IfA Assessment Centre.

Training to be an NVQ Assessor is good CPD: it results in a nationally recognised qualification and helps you to

  • become familiar with the National Occupational Standards for Archaeological Practice
  • understand different ways of assessing competence
  • develop your interpersonal and communication skills
  • work with early career archaeologists and volunteers, helping them develop their own skills and competence
