What is the Assessor Directory?
We know that each year some Licenses Organisations and AAPs struggle to find an accredited Assessor, which can mean having to postpone or cancel a qualifying expedition. The Assessor Directory is a new functionality on eDofE where accredited Assessors will be able to share their availability and geographic area with LOs and AAPs if they are willing to assess for other organisations. LOs and AAPs will be able to search for an Assessor, potentially at short notice, for their Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions.
It is important to note that only Active Assessors will be visible on the Assessor Directory. Active Assessors are those who have a valid accreditation that is in date (i.e. not marked as Inactive or Expired) and who have at least one current affiliation (i.e. they are registered and approved to assess for at least one Licensed Organisation or Approved Activity Provider).
Only eDofE account holders (Leader and above) can access the Assessor Directory and must be logged into their accounts to do so.
