Developing Assessors at United Utilities

Congratulations to PAA\VQ-SET learners Jen Hindley and Owen Broughton who have recently achieved their assessor qualifications through Approved Centre United Utilities and are now working as part of United Utilities in-house Assessment Team.


Dawn Longden, Senior Scientist and Centre Coordinator, commented on their achievement, “Jen and Owen have been a great asset to our Centre and have been an invaluable help to our Apprentices.”


Dawn also explained why United Utilities offer competence qualifications to their employees, “We have been an active NVQ Centre since 2000 and find the NVQ qualifications have greatly assisted our Apprentices and other employees, as part of their development within our Training Plans at United Utilities. Knowledge gained from completing NVQ units, alongside the training given, also supplies fantastic evidence for individual Continued Personal Development portfolios.”


“I look forward to a future where we can maintain our Centre accreditation with guidance from our External Verifier, David Jenkins, and the passionate commitment of our Assessment Team. ”
