Assessment of Training – Legal Status of Qualifications


Does anyone out there know of any moves scheduled for August of this year to make it a legal requirement for assessors of training to hold a recognised Assessment qualification - e.g. D32/D33?
I know of the moves to re-structure the TDLB awards, and (I think I've got this bit right) to re-title them as "E" units. But a concerned manager in my organisation has contacted me asking if there is any basis in the above rumour - and what implications there may be for us if it is true.
Any clues?

  1. Are you thinking of FE tutors qualifications?
    Last November the government announced that new FE tutors would have to have a qualification from September this year. (see for details). Is this of any use? As far as we are aware, this only applies to FE tutors who are delivering training towards a recognised qualification. The D32/33 qualifications are indeed being re-structured, details are at .

  2. S/NVQs
    Andy, the editor is correct in what she says and if you log in to the areas that were highlighted this will guide you. On a personal note I have been involved in the SVQ process in Scotland for over five years, and what seems to be happening up here is that anyone who delivers recognised course’s are being encouraged to achieve D32&33 Units.

    As for staff achieving the D32/33 the time involved can vary, depending on what college or provider you go with. Also the time for individual assessments would be around 2 hours,this is needed to ensure that the candidates get the support and guidance that is required.

  3. Mandatory in England
    I was at a training event where it was discussed about D units changing and they will now be A Units not L28 as originally thought. I think there was certainly discussion about trying to make it mandatory to hold qualification. In Further Education in Scotland we must hold the qualification.
