Assessors help participants set goals for their chosen activity and assess whether they have undertaken the required regular effort and have striven to achieve their goals. Assessors must be chosen OR are required to be chosen early on to help participants set achievable goals for their chosen activities.
- An Assessor is an adult, who is not a family member, and who has knowledge or experience in the participant's chosen activity.
- An assessor is a suitably skilled, experienced and/or qualified adult in the participant’s chosen activity but cannot be a family member. Their role is to engage with participants and offer guidance, mentoring and encouragement.
- An Assessor should personally see the participant undertaking the activity regularly (at least once every four weeks) in order to provide them with feedback, support them to achieve their goal and monitor improvement. Assessors act as mentors and work with participants for the duration of their activity.
- At the end of the required time the Assessor needs to write a short Assessor's report.
- An Assessor needs to be listed by the participant when they are setting up the activity in the Online Record Book.
