All academic assessors are responsible for upholding public protection when collating and confirming students’ learning, and making a recommendation for progression. This means that their decisions do not compromise public protection. It can be done in a number of ways, including:
- ensuring that their decisions are carried out in a fair and evidenced based way
- serving as a role model for safe and effective practice in line with their professional codes of conduct (including the relevant codes as set by the regulator(s) for each profession)
- raising concerns about any impacts to public protection from student learning. This can mean risks to public protection from the student, but also any risks to people due to the student’s conduct
- taking action to ensure any concerns raised with them are dealt with in a timely and appropriate manner in keeping with the AEI processes
- taking responsibility for carrying out objective and evidenced based decisions.
As registered professionals, all academic assessors also have a responsibility to abide by the duty of candour.
