Assessors are central to workplace training

Assessors play a key role in supporting learners throughout the training and assessment process.

The Skills Organisation works with industries to develop assessment material based on a collection of evidence model. To gain credits for a unit standard, learners have to demonstrate that they are competent.

Assessment involves the collection and recording of evidence demonstrating a person's competence in each unit standard for which they are seeking credit. This evidence can be gathered by observing normal day-to-day work, from the organisations' records, team leader’s/manager’s verification, questionnaires completed, and verbal discussions.
