EEEK! My Training Package Has Been Updated!

20 September 2021

You Asked: We Deliver!

Ever been caught off guard by a Training Package change?

As VET Practitioners, we are all very aware that delivering vocational training and assessment is a continually evolving practice. Sometimes, just when we think we have all our scheduling, tools, resources and methods as perfect as perfect can be, the training package changes!
And so, we find ourselves going back to the drawing board and trying to get our heads around what this means for our beautifully designed, developed and delivered courses. At these times, VET practitioners simply see a list of ‘more things to do’ on top of what is an already very busy schedule. And, they would be right! This is the world of VET – one that is forever moving to reflect that of the industry areas it represents.  

To ensure our students have the best possible outcomes, we must be prepared for updates and have armed and ready, a clear step-by-step process that isn’t ‘larger than life’ when it comes to transitioning them and our materials.

Join Melanie Alexandra for this brand-new webinar as she enhances your understanding of transition requirements! She will step you through some key strategies to assist your approach, planning and implementation of requirements as and when transition expectations are imposed.
This 90-minute, interactive session is jam packed with content designed to help you!  Gain some real insights into how to lessen the urgency and confusion surrounding sudden updates to your training products, this September.  

Key topics covered within webinar

  • The structure of training products as presented on the national register
  • The status of training products and how these apply to the RTO’s scope of registration 
  • Being prepared for forthcoming updates before they happen! 
  • Using national register tools to compare gap content between superseded training products and their replacements 
  • Example content mapping 
  • Transitioning your learners, mid-course 
  • How superseded training products impact the current competence of a trainer and assessor 
  • Understanding the RTO’s transitioning approval process
