Do you work in the Plumbing and Heating industry? Are you motivated by sharing your knowledge?
Coleg Cambria have an exciting opportunity for an NVQ Assessor in Plumbing and Heating to join the Work Based Learning team at our Deeside Campus.
What is an Assessor?
Assessors use their professional expertise to support students looking to gain vocational qualifications (apprenticeships, NVQs etc). You can work as an assessor or verifier in all occupational areas where vocational qualifications exist. Assessors visit students in their place of work to see what they can do and whether their work meets national occupational standards for a particular skill. An assessor will first identify what a student knows and is able to do. From here they can then pinpoint the knowledge and skills the candidate needs to gain. Then they'll produce an individual action plan and will monitor the candidate's progress against the plan. It is a wonderful way for you to pass on your knowledge and expertise to the next generation!
