We are developing the web tool which will be used to operate the scheme and training courses for assessors. We are also working to streamline the assessment process to ensure that it is as cost effective and involves as little bureaucracy as possible.

This is part of a full review of the assessment evidence requirements, which aims to make the process robust but not onerous.'”
