The Quality Mark will be externally assessed by trained assessors, who have a wide range of experience of youth work in Wales.
The assessor role provides a great opportunity for professional development and enhancing your knowledge and experience of youth work across Wales. The role requires a strong understanding of youth work, the ability to review evidence, including complex data and information and the skills to apply the Quality Standards to a wide range of organisations.
Those wishing to express an interest in becoming an Assessor for The Quality Mark for Youth Work in Wales should:
- Read the document ‘The role of the assessor’
- Send a CV and personal statement (of no more than 500 words) outlining their suitability for the role to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Complete a short practical exercise.
We welcome expressions of interest from individuals who have the ability to work in both English and Welsh.
Those who are successful will be confirmed as an assessor and will be invited to review evidence generated by organisations applying for the Quality Mark between January 2017 and March 2018.
Please note assessors will be able to claim for their travel expenses, but not their time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is responsible for developing the schedule and plan for the assessment visit?
The lead assessor will develop the schedule for assessment and communicate directly with the organisation that is being assessed. All assessors are eligible to take on the lead assessor role, when they have completed at least two assessments, but there is no requirement that assessors become lead assessors.
