 Role and Responsibility of Assessors

 The primary key role of Assessors is to assess Candidates’ performance and/or
 related knowledge in a range of tasks to ensure that the competence/knowledge
 demonstrated meets the requirements of the standards.

  Assessors will, therefore,

  1.     Workplace Assessors must be occupationally competent in the areas of
         expertise that they will be assessing in this qualification
  2.     Be expected to refresh their expertise by being involved in continuous
         professional development activities
  3.     They will observe record and provide constructive feedback.
  4.     Completion of Unit:
         Assessor must be satisfied that Candidate’s evidence is to the required
         standards before completing and signing
  5.     Assessor guidance will be provided but evidence of relevant assessor
         qualifications will be an advantage

 Appropriate assessors for each unit are as follows:

 Unit 1 - Experienced clinical lead, public health consultant
 Unit 2 - Diabetologist, diabetes specialist nurse
 Unit 3 - Ophthalmologist, optometrist, ophthalmic trained nurse
 Unit 4 - Ophthalmologist, optometrist, ophthalmic trained nurse
 Unit 5 - Ophthalmologist, optometrist, ophthalmic trained nurse
 Unit 6 - Ophthalmic photographers, experienced photographers in retinopathy
 Unit 7 - Ophthalmologist, senior diabetic retinopathy grader

 In addition, anyone who has achieved a unit will then be able to become an
 assessor for that unit, further to a decision made by the employer.

 This list is a guide only. The DRS Team will ask for a copy of the assessor’s CV in
 order to ensure that they have the relevant qualification and /or experience to act
 as an assessor for an individual unit.

 Who should NOT be an assessor?

 Anyone who wishes to, or will need to, complete the unit/s in the future e.g. if
 holding the qualification might be a requirement for increased pay or for regulation
 purposes. They should not act as an assessor until they have completed the unit
