The College is increasing its team of assessors to meet demand for the revised New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services Level 5 driven in part by the changes to the Code of Professional Conduct for Financial Advice Services. The College has a number of part-time contract opportunities available for assessors.
This is your opportunity to develop your professional understanding and gain valuable professional development to enhance the skill, knowledge and competency of learners participating in the Level 5. We are potentially looking for two types of assessors. These are registered workplace assessors and contracted assessors.
A registered workplace assessor is a person, such as an experienced supervisor or manager, or graduate of the New Zealand Certificate in Financial Services Level 5, who works in an organisation that has enrolled learners with the College. They are registered with the College as a workplace assessor to assess learners in their workplace.
Workplace assessors must:
Hold as a minimum the unit standard 4098 (Use standards to assess employees’ performance, or demonstrate equivalent knowledge and skills) or be working towards this unit standard.
Be able to communicate well, both written and verbally, since assessment involves keeping good documentation, and having probing discussions with employees.
- Must be able to demonstrate technical expertise to assess against the applicable unit standards.
It is essential that the workplace assessor is currently employed with the relevant workplace and undertakes assessor training to act as a College workplace assessor. Assessment guidance will be provided by the College.
The College believes that it is important that all assessment activities, including the design and development of assessment instruments, conducting assessment, managing the assessment process and administration that goes with assessment is done professionally in order to give learners a fair chance to achieve success. This in turn enables employers to receive the benefits of employees being able to work more effectively and efficiently after graduation.
Contracted assessors will undertake assessments for the College not connected to the assessors’ workplace. For further information contact Sylvia Heywood, Academic Manager, Email: email@example.com or DDI: 09 306 1737
