SVQ Assessor

Application Deadline:
12 June 2024 at 08:00:00


Remote Flexible; however, regular travel within Edinburgh & The Lothians is expected



39 hours per week

About the Role

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced health and social care practice assessor to join our Learning and Development team. We are looking for someone with experience working in care at home, housing support services, and/or supporting people with learning disabilities and additional support needs.


  • £31,683-£33,147 per annum pro-rata (based on 39 hour work week)


As an SVQ Assessor/Internal Verifier, you will work remotely within our internal SQA Approved Centre, which was awarded “high confidence” from SQA.

You will predominantly support our staff in services in Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian, West Lothian, and Falkirk to gain their qualifications in SVQ Level 2 and/or 3 Social Services and Healthcare.

You’ll lead candidates through their induction onto their qualification, plan assessments, provide learner support, and assess holistically. You’ll be passionate about learning and experienced in offering additional learner support to suit a variety of learning styles and abilities. You will have strong organisational and communication skills and be comfortable and confident in using online tools such as Microsoft Teams and MS Office.

Working with around 30 candidates a year, we support candidates to complete their awards remotely via e-portfolio, but travel is required for direct observations and to support candidates as needed. Flexibility and willingness to travel are essential to the role, which involves a combination of remote home-based working and travel to our services/locations. You must have a valid UK driving licence and access to your own car.

The post requires you to have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in Health and Social Care and a care qualification at SVQ Level 3 or equivalent. Ideally you will hold both an SVQ Assessor and an Internal Verifier award; alternatively, you must have a willingness to work towards these professional qualifications.

Enhanced disclosure checks will be required of all successful applicants.

 Interviews will be held on the 18th, 19th, 20th June
