It's defined here https://www.gov.uk/the-national-standar ... e-training


Yep, like I said, that's how I read it but by just using the word 'assistant' rather than being a little more specific it's understandable that someone might interpret it differently.

I think it's clearly defined, but I can see the point. It would be simply enough for them to change the wording to 'qualified assistant instructor' or something like that.
