Populations and Job Prospects
D32/D33 Assessor candidates do not need any formal entry qualifications. Potential Internal Verifiers (D34) must already hold D32/D33 and be working in an NVQ training/delivery situation. Both courses are desirable training options for those seeking a rapid pathway to a fully recognised national NVQ qualification providing increased employment opportunities. NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier qualifications are also advantageous to professionally qualified persons who want to enhance and improve their job prospects by complementing their primary qualification with a proven training certificate. Training Centres and Corporate Training Departments prefer to employ staff who already hold the requisite 'D' Units.
Based at our Approved NVQ Training Centre convenient to Portsmouth and Southampton in Hampshire, the Assessor and Internal Verifier courses are designed to meet personal, corporate and QCA requirements for these highly desirable awards. All course programmes are flexible and presented in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere by experienced tutors. For on-site portfolio preparation candidates have use of Microsoft® software on Pentium powered PCs.
