Assessor Briefings

Please see dates below for forthcoming assessor briefings (formerly referred to as assessor training) and assessor refresher events.

Please see date below for the next assessor briefing. The event is open to both prospective assessors (those new to the role) and assessors who have been inactive and wish to return to the role. We request that all prospective and inactive assessors attend a briefing prior to assessing a candidate on the revised PDAPL. We hope the briefing will support new and inactive assessors to refresh/ update their knowledge of the assessor role and familiarise themselves with the revised PDAPL portfolio. If you have a colleague that you would like to propose for the assessor role or would like to attend one of these events yourself then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

There is no charge for this event.  

Assessor dates will in be offered in advance of each new cohort.

Portfolio Briefing 

Portfolio briefings are offered as a support for assessors in preparation for assessing specific evidence sheets within the PDAPL portfolio (and distinct from existing standardisation meetings). Each briefing precedes learner submission dates and offers assessors the opportunity further familiarise themselves with specific evidence requirements, to review examples and as peer support to meet and share learning. Dates for portfolio briefings are detailed below to coincide with the start of Cohort 13, these and future dates will be advertised on the Learning Network West’s website. Primarily offered as a support for new/ returning assessors these portfolio briefings are available to all registered/ appointed assessors and made available free of charge. All briefings will be hosted at the Learning Network West offices at 117 Brook Street, Glasgow, G40 3AP.
