Construction Assessor

Why I became a Construction Assessor

'I left construction because I wanted to make a bigger impact. I realised teaching and assessing would let me share my experience and shape the future of the industry.'

James Smith

'The physical demands of construction were taking a toll on me. Transitioning to an assessor meant I could still contribute significantly to the field, but in a way that's more sustainable for my wellbeing.'

Emma Johnson

'I sought a career with better work-life balance. Becoming an assessor allowed me to use my construction knowledge while also spending more time with my family.'

Having some previous teaching experience, but lacking the qualification I needed to start training formally accredited courses, I completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Training with Matt and the Education and Training Academy.From the beginning, the expectations needed to complete the qualification were laid out... brilliantly in the academy's resources, which really made the process of completing the portfolio as clear as possible. The taught days of the course were a really enjoyable experience, students came from a range of backgrounds and the trainer ensured everyone felt involved and able to share their experiences. Many of the learning methods discussed on the course were clearly demonstrated and we had some great group discussions which left me reflecting on new ways of improving my own teaching approaches. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to complete their Level 3 more
