A2 Assessors Award

The qualification aims are to ensure that the Assessor is able to:

  • Assess candidates against agreed standards by observation and questioning
  • Give candidates feedback on assessment decisions.
  • Contribute to internal quality procedures.

Course Content

The A2 Qualification comprises four elements and covers:

  • Agreeing and reviewing plans for assessing candidates' performance
  • Assessing candidates' performance against the agreed standards
  • Assessing candidates' knowledge against the agreed standards
  • Making an assessment decision and giving feedback

Assessment and Evidence

The A2 assessment will require the student to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the assessment process and their ability to competently assess.

The A2 student will be required to produce a portfolio of evidence demonstrating their ability to competently assess candidates. Part of the course will involve you assessing NVQ learners.

How Long Does it Take to Achieve

The initial induction phase is two days of classroom-based tuition. This is followed by your workplace assessments. The time frame for completion of the course is largely down to the candidate – but the minimum time would be ten weeks. In reality it may take several months to achieve this award.
