If you possess excellent industry experience and knowledge and are considering a career change or move into education, please contact us for more information on how we can support you with this. The College can provide a range of support for applicants from industry including completion of an assessing qualification.

Trainer Assessors must be working towards or have achieved a relevant recognised assessor qualification such as a Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement and continue to practice to that standard. Assessors who hold earlier qualifications (D32 or D33 or TQFE/TQSE) should have CPD evidence to the most current standards.

They must be occupationally competent electricians. Evidence which supports this is by the assessor holding a relevant electrotechnical NVQ L3* and/or having registration with the JIB as ‘Approved Electrician’ status or Eng-Tech status via the IET.

Assessors who qualified before NVQs were developed should provide evidence of how they are occupationally competent (such as through a CV together with any relevant references).
