More About The Assessors Guild

The Assessors Guild is the only Professional Membership Body for Vocational, Technical, Academic and End Point Assessors in the UK, pioneered by The Federation for Industry Sector Skills, who have a longstanding reputation within the education arena. The inception of this Professional Membership Body is rooted in often held concerns surrounding lack of quality assessment which roadblocks consistency in assessment results. For too long, lack of assured learning activities and resources, databases of skilled Assessors and a universal set of standards to be held accountable against, have been sorely lacking. The Assessors Guild is here to change that. 

The Guild plan to bring this to an end by igniting the passion of the community and bringing it together in a mission to seek, promote and withhold high standards in CPD and assessment through a collective voice too loud to ignore and by introducing a range of membership benefits such as access to quality jobs, professional development opportunities, policy and news updates.  

For too long, the Assessor has gone unrecognised and under-appreciated as vital players in the education system. Individual membership to The Assessors Guild will help solve this problem by improving standing and credibility of assessors and improve employability through their commitment to CPD, their Code of Conduct and Professional Standards. The assessment community is rapidly growing and advancing in terms of both the skills required and capacity, so membership will allow the Assessor to fulfil their duties with assurance and commitment. Members will be able to demonstrate commitment to quality and professional improvement as well as offering the chance to post availability of work, meaning an effective membership system that works perfectly in tandem. 

Not only does The Assessors Guild serve the individual Assessor, but they also offer corporate level memberships that are suitable for a diverse range of providers working in and across assessment at an organisational level, such as EPAOs, Employers and Training Providers. Corporate members can enjoy an array of benefits, as well as monitoring their own assessors’ professional development through a dedicated portal. The robust application process and access to the member portal also supports organisations in the initial selection and sifting of suitable practitioners prior to appointment. Individual members will demonstrate commitment to quality and professional improvement as well as offering the chance to post availability of work, meaning an effective membership system that works perfectly in tandem. 

Above all, The Assessors Guild is an advocate of assessment, offering a comprehensive support network for all of their members. It is crucial that the assessment community work consistently across a quality framework to ensure learners achieve and organisations and regulatory bodies have the confidence in a system that works.
