The role of an Assessor

Assessors are volunteers who play a crucial role in delivering the Duke of Ed.

As an Assessor, you’ll engage with our young Award Participants, offering them guidance, mentoring and encouragement as they work towards their chosen activity goals. Assessors are individuals experienced in the activities young people choose for the Award, and range from soccer coaches to music teachers, charity organisers and bush care volunteers.

“Being an assessor was an incredible privilege. It was an opportunity to water the garden of someones life so they have the opportunity to step into more of themselves in the best possible way. What a treat to experience a flourishing garden. Who wouldn’t want that? “

The role of a Supervisor

Supervisors are volunteers who make and implement arrangements to ensure the safety of Participants undertaking their Adventurous Journeys. The Supervisor can be a different person for each Journey, and there can also be more than one Supervisor for each Journey. You can contact your State or Territory Award office for further information in relation to undertaking Adventurous Journeys.

It is the responsibility of the Award Leader, on behalf of their Award Centre, to approve Assessors and Supervisors and ensure they are suitable.

All Assessors and Supervisors working with young people under the age of 18 must comply with the legislation concerning Working With Children.

Supervisors are volunteers who play a critical role in implementing and overseeing the arrangements concerning the safety of Participants when they are undertaking their Adventurous Journeys.

The Supervisor can be a different person for each journey, and there can also be more than one Supervisor for each journey.

The Adventurous Journey Assessor may also undertake the role of Journey Supervisor if approved by the Award Leader and if they are appropriately trained/experienced/qualified in respect of their Award Centre’s policy requirements.
