What Do I Need to Bring?

  • Participants will need access to pre-assessment moderated assessment materials. 
  • Participants must have at least one learner that is ready to be assessed against a standard. 
  • Candidate Assessors will need to be able to complete two real assessments with their candidates within 30 days of the workshop day. 

Special Note

Not all participants who engage in our assessor training work with NZQA, or unit standards. In these instances, AMS customises the learning and assessment to focus on the standards for which the assessors will be assessing against, whether these are international standards, industry standards, organisational standards, or standard operating procedures.
