Peripatetic Assessor/Tutor

  • Part time

  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 21st April 2019


  • Advertised from 20th February 2019

Role

As a Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) approved assessment centre we have a long track record of achieving high grades for our delivery methods across awards in social care and childcare, including Vocational qualifications and Professional Development Awards.

We work with a variety of organisations from education centres to statutory, private and voluntary organisations providing services in social care and childcare. The quality of our assessment processes, and the support we offer to candidates, has been fundamental to our success for over 35 years.

We are currently looking for Peripatetic Assessors to join our teams in childcare and social care delivering SVQs and class room based taught courses. These roles would suit a variety of applicants seeking to earn on a self-employed basis at a level that suits them.

Peripatetic Assessors may already have a part time role and be looking for paid opportunities which may also help to develop their career, others may be approaching retirement or looking to try a new career in training and development.

The role provides an opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding around the assessment process, whilst also developing the skills required to motivate and support staff in their professional development.

We are interested in hearing from trained and untrained assessors. If you do not hold an assessor’s award, we offer the L&D 9DI as part of our induction and assessor development programme. This qualification allows individuals to deliver a range of awards including SVQ, PDA and HNC.

Experience working in childcare or adult care services, and the necessary qualifications to register with the SSSC are essential to the assessor role.
