NVQ Assessor recruitment agency listing

An NVQ assessor assesses students who are studying for National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs).

NVQ assessors must have at least two to four years experience of working in the area they wish to assess, meaning that school leavers are unable to enter into this line of work. To work in NVQ assessor jobs, it is essential to have gained an assessor qualification while working. Qualifications include the A1 Certificate, which enables an assessor to assess candidates using a variety of methods, and the A2 Certificate, which enables an assessor to assess candidates through observation.

Once they have started their assessor training, assessors may apply to become Associate members of The Institute of Assessors and Internal Verifiers (IAV). Assessors can apply for Licentiate membership after one year in employment and Fellowship membership after five years.

NVQ assessor jobs can be found throughout the UK in educational institutions and companies of all sizes. There is currently a national shortage of NVQ assessors, particularly in construction and health and social care. The majority of NVQ assessors assess candidates in the workplace. This means that they often need to travel between different locations. The ability to drive is therefore very useful. Jobs for qualified assessors are advertised in a range of ways, including through recruitment agencies.

Starting salaries for NVQ assessors are between £14,000 and £20,000 a year. Experienced staff can move into internal or external verifier jobs. Alternatively, they can gain a teaching qualification and move into further education teaching.
