Sport & Exercise Psychology Qualifications Board – Call for Assessors for the Qualification in Sport & Exercise Psychology (Stage 2)

The Sport & Exercise Psychology Qualifications Board is concerned with the assessment of the Society’s Qualification in Sport & Exercise Psychology (Stage 2), which leads to eligibility to apply for Chartered Membership of the Society and Full Membership of the Division of Sport & Exercise Psychology, and eligibility to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council for registration as a Sport & Exercise Psychologist.

The Board is seeking to appoint some additional assessors to assist with the assessment of candidate work.

The qualification comprises four key roles and candidates submit evidence in fulfilment of these roles at three points during their enrolment. Each submission includes a case study, reflective diary and practice log along with supporting evidence, and the final submission also includes a research report.

The assessment of the first and second submissions is formative, with the assessment of the final submission (which includes a viva) being summative. Each candidate is assigned two assessors, and initially new assessors are paired with a more experienced assessor.

The timescale for assessors to assess a submission is 4 weeks, and all assessments are conducted electronically.

Assessors receive payment for each submission and payment for a viva.

Travel and subsistence expenses incurred when attending vivas (usually held at the Leicester office) will be reimbursed in accordance with the Society’s policy.

Assessors are also required to engage in an annual paper-based review of their role. This post does not require attendance at Board meetings.

Newly appointed assessors must attend the annual training day for assessors on 8th November 2018 in Leicester. In order to remain an assessor, assessors must attend at least one annual assessors training day in any two year period. Assessors are of course welcome, and indeed encouraged, to attend the training day each year.
