LEVEL 2 APPRENTICESHIP ASSESSORS (Signallers/Communications Specialists)

Location England and Scotland – all regions

The role is for a qualified assessor to assist in the delivery of Level 2 Apprenticeships across the UK.  Each assessor will be given a region within which to work.  It will involve face-to-face workshops in regional centres, followed by assessment of candidates both remotely and on site. The assessment process is well established and assessors must have ready access to the Internet.  They must also have a car and licence to drive.

Candidates must be qualified Signallers/Communications specialists, and assessor qualified with either D32/33 or A1 awards.

There is a requirement for 4-6+ assessors, able to start in Sep 17.  The contract is for one year, though opportunities for the extension of the contract for further years are good.  Furthermore, the opportunity to deliver training and assessment in other occupational areas exist and will be a growing requirement.

The work will be both intensive and rewarding.  Standardisation training will be provided to each assessor and there will be regular contact with clients.  The activity will be broadly timetabled, though assessors have considerable scope to determine their own detailed work arrangements.

A further opportunity exists for an Internal Verifier with Signals/Communications experience, to be discussed with potential candidates.

Further questions please contact David on 07738 627141



We have been running as an on-line and face to face training provider to the commercial and public sector for three years. This year we have moved into apprenticeship delivery, and due to this success we are looking to recruit a number of assessors and verifiers to work with us in this.

We are looking for Apprentice Assessors and Verifiers for Leadership and Management Level 5+ who are able to start in September 2017, across the country. Successful candidates will be allocated a region within which to work.

The job will require you to:

  • Work alone and with others.
  • Have the ability to sort out your own diary within an overall framework. You will work to a general timetable but it is up to you to determine the day-to-day schedule and maintain contact with apprentice, employer, and The Business School UK.
  • Highlight any issues that arise, if required.
  • Be able to drive, with your own car and a clean driving license.

The Mapping of the apprenticeship standard against the ILM Level 5 Diploma is available. However, although the learning journey has not yet been fully defined it is likely to include:

  • ILM Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management
  • A workplace project
  • Development of a portfolio of evidence
  • Regular reviews with apprentice and line manager

The initial contract will be for one year, but it is anticipated that this will roll onto further years. The apprenticeship is anticipated to take 2.5 years to complete overall.

You will be responsible for your own invoicing, tax, national insurance and have your own professional indemnity insurance.

Pay scales will be competitive and more advantageous than the typical assessor in FE/HE colleges. The contract rates will be paid at a set rate per apprentice with payment being on a monthly basis.

If you are an experienced and qualified leadership and management assessor and/or verifier please send your CV to helen@thebusinessschool.uk.com. It is important that you include your location on the CV; due to the regional aspect to this job. Also include your relevant experience, specifically working on ILM Level 5 qualifications.

We look forward to hearing from you. Helen Chambers (Operational Director) and David Ockleton (Business Development Director)
