What units are included in the TAQA Assessors Award?

The TAQA Assessors Award qualification covers Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment and Assess Occupational Competence in the Work Environment.

How is the TAQA Assessors Award qualification delivered?

Clients are expected to attend one TAQA Assessors Award workshop which covers the theory element of the qualification – Understanding the Principles and Practices of Assessment. Then, on your very last visit of the assessment, your tutor will be present to carry out a final evaluation of your skills and knowledge.

Who’s eligible for the TAQA Assessors Award qualification?

Ideally, upon enrolment clients should have access to 2 learners who will then be assessed as part of the TAQA Assessors Award. However, if you do not have access to learners and would still like to enrol for the course, please contact us to discuss further.

How long does it take to achieve the TAQA Assessors Award qualification?

You will be expected to work with at least 2 learners, taking each learner through one unit of their qualification. On average, this equates to 3 visits per learner. On the last visit of your TAQA Assessors Award course, you will be observed by your tutor for quality purposes.

“Educ8 Training’s TAQA qualification was brilliant, I don’t think I could have done it without the fantastic level of support I was provided with by my tutor. I worked with 2 learners and particularly enjoyed the practical side of the assessment because I learn better hands on. I would highly recommend the course to anyone looking to become a qualified assessor!”
