The Assessors Guild is the dedicated professional membership body for Assessors in the UK. Headed by Sam Taylor, this organisation pioneers standardisation in the Assessor profession.
For too long, the profession has been undervalued and hence underserved with quality resources like CPD, Jobs and above all lacking in standardisation.
This professional body was introduced by the Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards to combat all of these concerns, gaining the support from the industry and many big names in assessment. After years of working so closely with organisations in the industry, the charity decided that Standardisation had to be implemented for the sake of the development of UK skills & standards.
It’s simple – membership to The Assessors Guild affords you a competitive edge amongst your professional peers and also communicates your proficiency to industry. Essentially, The Assessors Guild is a kitemark of quality.
