The AEI, is with its practice learning partners, is responsible for identifying which professionals may be suitable academic assessors for students, and for what period. This can be done continuously throughout the student’s programme.

When they do this, they should take into account the following things:

  • public protection
  • the relevant standards
  • student learning needs
  • programme outcomes
  • competence, suitability, and preparation of potential academic assessors, and
  • resource considerations and size of the cohort

Relevant standards for this section:

Standards for student supervision and assessment: 6.1, 6.3-6.6 (page 8) 9.7 (page 10)

Standards for prescribing programmes: 4.6 (page 12)
