Meet Our Assessors

Introducing…the great team of tutors and assessors who help learners navigate their way through Level 3 and Level 6 qualifications!

Meet our lovely team of assessors – a group of friendly and supportive tutors, professional interpreters in their specialist fields, and most importantly – really kind and relatable people, who are an absolute pleasure to work with! They possess years of knowledge and experience when it comes to training and supporting learners and ISL (as well as our learners) are very lucky to have them on our team.
