NVPDW: Back to Basics – How does a unit of competency really work?

22 October 2019
ONLINE

This webinar is one of ten available during National VET PD Week- a joint venture between Velg Training and Australian Council for Private Education and Training.

This webinar is being hosted by Velg Training.

About this webinar

This webinar will explore the fundamental components of a unit of competency to remind us about the way we should really look at a unit.

A unit is a standard. It is not a set of teaching notes or an assessment method! It is not a “what do I do on Monday” statement.

It defines, and suggests a way of measuring, “competence” with regard to a specified job role/function.

This webinar will answer the question: How does a unit of competence really work?  The webinar will use actual unit components and actual assessment items throughout to illustrate points made

Key topics covered within webinar

The unit of competency and its associated assessment requirements.

  • Why? How do these two parts work together?
  • What are the components of each of these parts?
  • How do the principles of assessment and the rules of evidence apply to the construction and use of the unit?
