NVPDW: Most Common Non-Compliances in Assessment

27 October 2020

This 90-minute session is one of five available during the 2020 National VET PD Week. Take the opportunity to tap into the expertise of our VET Expert in the 30-minute ‘let’s talk about’ component at the end of the presentation.  Our VET Expert will respond to your live questions and comments, any Questions on Notice and Frequently Asked Questions.

The QON for this session is now closed to allow us to send these questions to the Presenter.

About this session

Non-compliance across vocational assessment has plagued trainers and assessors (and compliance managers!) for many years, clouding an understanding of the assessment principles and rules that have fundamentally stayed the same.

We often forget that the Standards simply describe what has always been required and provide guidance to ensure that those principles and rules are being effectively applied.

This session will identify the most common causes and effects of non-compliance across vocational assessment and provide you with a simplistic solution to getting it right. You’ll be surprised!

Key topics covered within the session

  • Effectively mapping assessment tasks and tools
  • Providing clear assessment instructions
  • Collecting assessment evidence – how to inform your own assessment decisions!
  • Validating validity, reliability, sufficiency and currency
  •  Your questions answered

NB. Can't make the session?
We send out all electronic resources to registrants within 48 hours of the session closure. All Velg Training Webinars are scheduled in AEST (QLD time) - please check your timezone before logging onto the online training session.
