Calling for G-REG Assessors

G-REG is currently providing opportunities for qualification graduates (Level 3 Core Knowledge and Level 4 Operational Knowledge) and Subject Matter Experts from across the sector to join the National G-REG Assessor Pool.

What does a G-REG assessor do?

An assessor is responsible for ensuring the quality, fairness, and validity of an assessment, and ensure the assessment process is impartial. In addition, they are responsible for reporting assessment decisions to Skills.

Trained assessors will receive scope to assess The New Zealand Certificate in Regulatory Compliance (Operational Practice) (Level 4) and The New Zealand Certificate in Regulatory Compliance (Level 5) with strands in Audit, Inspection, Investigation and Operations.

To find out more about the G-REG Level 4 Operational Practice and Level 5 Qualifications, go to the qualifications page page.

G-REG assessors will:

  • Be assigned no more than 10 learners to assess per year for either qualification
  • Plan assessment with learners and others involved in the assessment process
  • Guide learners on how best to collect evidence of their competence
  • Assess learners’ evidence against unit standard requirements using pre-moderated assessment resources
  • Provide feedback, arrange for re-assessment if necessary and advise on results
  • Maintain records of assessment activities
  • Participate in moderation where required
  • Assess learners from an organisation outside their own
  • Provide ongoing feedback to Skills and G-REG on the qualifications
