23 November 2020: Assessment of Foundation Skills

Presented by:   Rachel Taylor

This very popular webinar from our Foundation Skills Focus Week in 2019 is now available FREE to members.

It will demonstrate how foundation skills are pivotal to all we do as trainers/assessors and how we can ensure that those underpinning foundation skills are adequately assessed through tasks that are industry relevant, whatever training package we are teaching from.

When it comes to assessment of foundation skills, many trainers/assessors think this belongs in the realm of those who teach from the FSK Training Package and does not really apply to them. This webinar will demonstrate how foundation skills are pivotal to all we do as trainers/assessors and how we can ensure that those underpinning foundation skills are adequately assessed through tasks that are industry relevant, whatever training package we are teaching from.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • An overview of foundation skills and where can I find them
  • Unpacking foundation skills and repacking them into your assessment tasks
  • Designing tasks that enable learners to demonstrate their foundation skills with an industry specific focus
  • Q & A
