Requirements of an assessor
Our assessors must be qualified health professionals and hold:
- Current knowledge and experience in immunisation
- Are academics and teachers in the higher education and vocational education sectors
- Are authorised Immunisers
Once you apply to be an assessor, HESA will contact you to confirm receipt of your expression of interest.
If we accept your application to become an assessor your details go on our HESA assessment team register. HESA draws on the register to create a team for each education program requiring accreditation.
We select assessors case-by-case, based on:
- availability to perform the role, including the time needed for the review
- confirmation that there is no real or perceived conflict of interest that would interfere with the accreditation process.
All assessors must sign a confidentiality and conflict of interest declaration.
A team is appointed for each program requiring accreditation by HESA. Each team generally has a minimum of four members:
- one Associate Director as chairperson
- two with academic and/or educational expertise
- at least one with relevant expertise in clinical practice
