Homebased Lead Accreditation Assessor

Homebased Lead Accreditation Assessor

A professional association which exists to change people's lives are recruiting for a part time Lead Accreditation Assessor for 3days a week to ensure that standards for accreditation across its accreditation schemes (individual, courses, and services) are maintained and applied.

Based from home, but with fortnightly team meetings in Leicestershire, you will manage 8 contract assessors to lead on the assessment of all accredited scheme applications, including initial accreditations, renewals, and course/service changes from individual counsellors/psychotherapists, counselling course staff and counselling services.

As someone who is a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist and who has experience in delivering therapy and/or supervising case work, you will lead on all technical aspects of the accreditation schemes, both current and those in development as well as assess accreditation applications from all schemes against identified criteria, including site visits to training providers and regular liaison with the office based team, and undertake tele-surgeries as required with members seeking clarity on deferral reports or accreditation criteria.

You will have a thorough understanding and experience of quality assurance schemes relating to individual practitioners, organisations and training courses, as well as experience of delivering training workshops and presentations, and ideally previous experience of further/higher education teaching and quality processes or equivalent. This will allow you to manage the appeal process, including liaising with external panel members; plan, organise and deliver meetings related to accreditation criteria and processing; and ensure that operational processes are applied and maintained

You will also have excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to communicate at all levels to line manage the Accreditation Assessors, including having appraisals, assigning workloads, moderating decisions and working with the Accreditation Team Supervisor to ensure smooth running of processes.

On top of this, if you also have a good level of computer literacy skills and are able to work within a team and on your own initiative, organising and prioritising workloads then this could be the role for you.
