How to Become an Assessor for Certificates of Competence (Land Based)

Certificates of Competence qualifications are assessed through one to one observation of a candidate carrying out tasks and answering questions.  This is done by an Assessor ‘who does not have a vested interest in the outcome', we call this Independent Assessment.

A number of City & Guilds land based qualifications are 'integrated'. This is where the training and assessment can be carried out by the same person, providing the candidate is made aware of when the assessment is taking place.

City & Guilds will train and approve Assessors, providing they meet our Quality Standards.

Those approved will have a combination of comprehensive technical expertise/qualifications gained in the relevant industry, together with communication skills and assessment ability, sufficient to demonstrate competence and integrity of the highest order. We must advise you that City & Guilds NPTC are not bound to appoint any person to the post of Assessor, but will evaluate applications along with the Centre, train and subsequently approve sufficient Assessors to meet its needs.
