Who is an Assessor?

An Assessor is an adult volunteer identified by an Award Leader who assesses a participant’s chosen activity in any section of the Award and completes the record book to verify they have achieved the requirements of the Award. They assist young person with their Award. For each Section of The Award (Physical Recreation, Skill, e.t.c), a participant will need at least one Assessor to help guide them throughout their Award. In some instances, a participant will require more than one Assessor per Section to ensure that each activity has been completed.

Assessors must have experience and/or qualifications in the activity chosen by the young person. They must be suitably skilled to assess a Participant’s activity, write a report at the completion of that activity, and sign off the Participant’s records to verify the participant has achieved the requirements of The Award. In most circumstances, an Assessor should not be an immediate family member. An Assessor can assess more than one Participant. They may also be qualified to assess across multiple activities and/or sections. Please note that a Coordinator can also be an Assessor.

As an Award Assessor, you also play a crucial role in the success of The Award Program. Your role is to engage with Participants, and offer guidance, mentoring and encouragement as they undertake the Section of The Award that you are assessing.
