The role of an Assessor is crucial in enabling referees to follow a pathway of development. It is acknowledged that assessments play an increasingly important role in the promotion and development of officials right throughout the game.

How do I become an assessor?

You do not have to have officiated at the top level to become an assessor. Experienced officials from Level 7 can make a difference to the development and progression of referees at all levels by becoming an FA Registered Assessor. You will be involved in assessing referees appropriate to your level of experience. You can also still be an active referee and assess for the County when available.

What is the first step in getting qualified?                      

You need to take an assessors course that is held in conjunction with your County FA.
