Did anyone take up this offer.

If not how do you become an Assessor

Hi Ian, I had a meeting with Katie to enquire further - but the training isn't free - it costs about 250 and will take up about 40 hours of time going to college.

Once trained you are qualified to carry out NVQ assessments in any subject.

This wasn't what I wanted, the money wasn't the issue but committing 40 hours of my time was. Also I couldn't give a rats about other subjects, all I want to train in is cleaning.

Does anyone know where I can do this?


PS Katie was lovely though! Wink

These people advertised for ready trained assessors a few months ago in C&M mag.  I applied thinking the job was with them, then was sent a load of blurb about being a part time lecturer from the local college, so it seems they act as an introduction agency.  After 2 application forms, an interview, a detailed medical examination and 2 references, I am waiting to start the job.  I still dont know how many hours this will take of my time but am looking forward to the rather nice hourly pay rate!!! Grin  After I start and have a better idea of whats involved, I will post more info then you can decide if the money and training required to become an assessor are worth it!

I hope it works out for you.

If it does please advise We like to hear good

If not let us know and create hell.

I am in the middle of Industrial Tribunial Case for someone, I hate it when people are abused in work or ripped off trying to improve themselves.

Our local Gangmasters have been arrested today over employing and encouraging and exploiting illegal workers.

Just to pick up a point from a previous post. I am already an NVQ assessor in the Cleaning industry (In NO WAY WHATSOEVER anything to do with Protocol or any subsiduary of them)

If you complete the Assessor training (Now called the A1 award) you can then only assess nvq's in areas you are vocationally competent to satisfy awarding body requirements. Anyone who tells you you can assess anything has their facts wrong.

Seems the company I work for are picking up a hell of a lot of business from employers who are dissatisfied with Protocols training methods - just something to bear in mind

If anyone wants any more information on training within the cleaning industry, what quals are available etc etc then don't hesitate to drop me a line
