Workplace Assessor/Internal Verifier (2) (13/1144)
£8,942 - £9,635

As part of the re-structuring of the Lifelong Learning Team and development of a Single Training & Development function for our Council, we are looking to recruit 2 part-time assessors to each work 14 hours per week in the Lifelong Learning team, delivering SVQ’s in Social Services & Healthcare and Care Services Leadership and Management at SCQF levels 6, 7, 9 & 10. You must be a qualified assessor, in addition to having completed a relevant social care/social work qualification, with current and extensive experience of working within the social care/social work profession.

The candidates you support will come from diverse staffing groups and your role will include working in partnership with managers and candidates to ensure the timely achievement of an SVQ qualification.

You will work with candidates to prepare for, plan and assess their performance and knowledge against the National Occupational Standards.

You will be required to complete appropriate records for all aspects of the assessment and verification process as required by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), whilst ensuring that the SVQ Centres quality assurance policies and procedures are adhered to.

Applicants must be flexible and be prepared to travel and work throughout the region. A current driving licence is an essential requirement of this post. However, if you have a disability which precludes you from holding a driving licence consideration will be given if alternative transport can be arranged.
