The Assessors Guild


The Assessors Guild is the Professional Membership Body for technical, vocational, end point and academic assessors and quality assurers. We set and enforce a set of Professional Standards and Code of Conduct to ensure that the quality of vocational assessment is delivered to the highest levels. We also support the work of End Point Assessment Organisations (EPAOs), training providers and Awarding Organisations, to underpin the delivery of Apprenticeships and Technical Education.


The Assessors Guild aims to:

  • Provide assessors and internal quality assurers with a dedicated Professional
    Membership Body, offering a membership model that encourages ongoing
    development and networking opportunities.
  • Support the maintenance of Professional Standards. These standards were developed
    in collaboration with the largest EPAOs and leading assessors to ensure they were
    valid and map to existing and legacy assessor and IQA awards.
  • Provide easy access to a range of technical and industry specific CPD opportunities
  •  Promote accessibility to jobs and contracts through our booking tool and our Guild
    Register of Assessors (RoA)
  •  Establish a marketplace for freelance assessors to offer their services, network and
    develop professional competence.
  • Quality manage our members’ professional development through their annual
    commitment to CPD.
