Support for the academic assessor role

Reference: AC4

Last Updated 06/02/2019

Academic assessors must be given the ongoing support and time necessary for them to develop and perform their role, and to train as needed. This support can take a number of forms but must allow for our standards to be met and for academic assessors to perform their role.

Where possible, it should be tailored to the academic assessor’s needs and requirements. It should include any reasonable adjustments or equality and diversity considerations that may need to be met.

Relevant standards for this section:

Standards for student supervision and assessment: 6.7 (page 8)

Standards framework for nursing and midwifery education: R4.3, R4.4 (page 11)
