Application Process

To become a RLSS UK Pool National Trainer Assessor, there is a four stage process.

The online application form asks you to confirm you meet the pre requisites, upload your evidence and detail your training, assessing and mentoring experience. We also ask you to answer some questions about why you think you would make a great National Trainer Assessor.

Applicants that are successful in stage 1 will be invited to take part in a technical knowledge assessment carried out over the telephone (15-30 mins). Your current knowledge of the content of the syllabus and guidance for your qualifications will be put to the test, as well as your knowledge of mentoring. You will require a good underpinning knowledge in order to make a great National Trainer Assessor.

Applicants that are successful in stages 1 and 2 will qualify for a place on the NTA course. A two day interactive workshop based course that provides you with all of the information you will need to successfully train the next generation of Trainer Assessors. There is an assessment at the end of the course that you will need to pass in order to progress to stage 4.

Those that successfully pass the NTA course will be awarded Probationary NTA status. You will then have two years to fully organise and deliver a Trainer Assessor Course. On the final day of the course you will be moderated by a member of the IQL UK quality assurance team to ensure quality and consistent delivery and adherence to IQL UK guidelines. On successful completion of this moderation, full NTA status will be issued.

Application & Course Fees

Applicants who are successful in progressing to the NTA Course (stage 3) will then need to pay the course fee of £500. Payments will be made on the application and booking platform.
