When you arrive at the assessment please take a seat and wait for your assessor to greet you and invite you to sit with him/her. If you see that your assessor is alone then you are welcome to approach him/her and ask whether you may begin, but please ensure that you don't interrupt a previous assessment. We recommend arriving a few minutes early at the assessment venue to ensure that you are relaxed and comfortable.
Initially your assessor will ask to see your ID (passport or driving licence) and then your lesson will begin.
Your lesson will last a maximum of 15 minutes, but please don't rush to fit a complete lesson into those 15 minutes; a complete 15 minute lesson will not be scored more favourably than the first 15 minutes of a 1 hour lesson. You shouldn't think about the time, and your assessor will ask you to stop after 15 minutes. Your lesson can be shorter than 15 minutes, but it should be at least 10 minutes.
After your lesson has finished your assessor will thank you and will mark your assessment once you have left. Your assessor will not know your overall grade; the overall grade is determined once your assessor has transferred the assessment scores to Tutoring Standards, and you will discover your overall grade via an email 4 days after your assessment. You will then be able to read a review of your assessment on our website.
