Supported time and resources

Last Updated 24/10/2023

Our standards set out our expectations of the supported time and resources provided for assessors.

 What ‘supported time and resources’ means will be different depending on the needs and ability of individual practice assessors, student learning needs and programme outcomes, and any equality and diversity considerations.

It’s the AEI’s responsibility, with its practice learning partners, to ensure the supported time and resources provided for practice assessors upholds public protection and enables them to carry out a reliable and evidenced based assessment.
