What we do:
Accelerate People is an Ofqual approved end-point assessment (EPA) organisation. We specialise in delivering high quality and flexible EPAs for Digital Apprenticeships.

About the job:
As a Data Analyst (DA) Independent Assessor, you will use your expertise and experience to help shape new industry talent by conducting EPAs.

Apprentices will submit projects and portfolios of evidence for you to review; you will use these as the basis for your interviews and questions when conducting assessments using the grading documentation provided. A key output of your role is to provide clear and constructive feedback to the training provider.
As industry and technologies move quickly, so should your development. That is why outside of the regular day-to-day assessments we allow our employees time to develop through regular Continuous Personal Development (CPD).
