Verifiers

Resources and support for Workplace Verifiers.

Verifier’s Role

Verifiers play a key role in supporting learners throughout the training and assessment process in primary industries and are usually a supervisor, team lead, manager, or a person with sound knowledge of the assessment topic.

Verifiers are used because of their subject matter knowledge and their frequent on- job access to a learner. They can observe learners when assessors are not available.

The main job of a verifier is to decide if the learner is consistently completing practical tasks to the required standard. This involves verifiers observing and questioning whilst the learner performs activities/tasks and giving feedback on the performance being witnessed.

Verifiers guide and assist learners in their collection of evidence, and therefore play a key role in supporting learners to achieve their qualification.

They give evidence to assessors and help assessors decide whether learners meet the standard.

Professional Development Workshops

The Academic Integrity Team is running a series of workshops across the country to upskill Verifiers. These workshops will be interactive and practical in nature with the aim of making your job easier by sharing practical tips and real-world examples that you can implement in your own verification practices.
