  • You must be a qualified social worker and registered with NISCC
  • You must have a minimum of 4 years post qualifying social work experience
  • You must have achievement within the PQ or PiP Framework and/or equivalent post-qualifying academic achievement
  • You must have experience of PQ/PiP assessment or other relevant assessment
  • You must attend a minimum of one standardisation event per year

A register of suitably qualified Assessors will be retained by the PiP Partnership.
