Assessors are primarily tasked to measure and assess the competence of individuals within a workplace or RTO against specified standards and qualifications.
Commonly, they collect evidence of performance, evaluate it according to established assessment principles, decide on an individual’s competence, record the assessment decision and provide feedback to the candidate.
In general, Assessors have adult teaching qualifications and are experienced practitioners in their field. They must also have good time management, organisation and communication skills. Experience in making reasonable judgments is likewise vital in the performance of their role.
