Assessor qualification

Have you considered assessing in childcare as a career pathway for you? If you're looking for a new challenge, or are considering a job move into training or assessing, this could be the course for you.

We've partnered once again with The Childcare Company, an Ofsted Grade 2 private training provider offering vocational qualifications and training in Childcare, Playwork, Supporting Teaching and Learning and assessing, to offer PACEY members the opportunity to gain the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement Qualification.

Anyone aged 19 or over that holds or is training towards a Level 3 childcare qualification may undertake the course. You will be guided and supported in your training so you will be competent to assess both occupational competence in the work environment and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding in environments other than the workplace and achieve the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement. 

Start date: January 2017

Duration: 14 weeks

Lessons: Lessons will be delivered via webinar (online interactive learning) one evening a week - this means that all study can be done at home or in the workplace at your convenience.

Observations: You will be matched with two learners by The Childcare Company to assess as part of your course to showcase and evidence your knowledge and skill. Your observation will be conducted via Skype or in the workplace. 

Career pathway: Completion of this certificate will open opportunities to become an assessor for a training provider, a lecturer in a college, and could lead into a Level 4 qualification in Education and Training. 

Job opportunities: The Childcare Company will offer a guaranteed job interview on successful completion of this qualification for any individuals that are interested in becoming childcare tutors. There are currently a minimum of two full time tutor roles available. 

Cost: Exclusive price of £861 for PACEY members.
