2017 Trainers and Assessors Mentoring Program

22 May, 21 August, 20 November 2017

In 2017, Velg Training will again run a comprehensive VET Mentoring Program. Velg Training is uniquely placed to provide such a program to educate, inspire and empower the VET community.

Ongoing professional development is vital to maintain an individual's skill, knowledge and expertise relevant to the VET sector. These Mentoring Programs will allow knowledge to be communicated and built upon over the 2017 calendar year to enhance your organisation's continuous improvement processes whilst maintaining your individual currency requirements.

All sessions in the Mentoring Program will include a pre-recorded webinar and a live webinar. The purpose of structuring the program this way is to ensure that participants get the most out of the program. Having pre-recorded content for participants will allow you to watch the content in your own time over a week. We know that many people in a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) are time poor and we believe that having flexibility is important to you. Additionally a live Q&A session will utilise our expert presenters and will give the opportunity for participants to come prepared to the webinar. Velg Training has run a comprehensive and successful webinar program for three years and our experience has led us to making these structural decisions.

What will be covered within webinar series

The role of the trainer and assessor in a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) requires a balance between compliance and the practice of training and assessing. This mentoring program has been designed to keep trainers and assessors up to date with regulatory requirements and on track with processes that need to be implemented in line with the Standards for RTOs (2015). Throughout the year you will receive a one-hour pre-recorded webinar on what you need to consider and plan for over the coming months. This will be followed by participation in a live one hour Q&A webinar where you can ask questions and hear what questions other VET trainers and assessors may have. Whether you are an experienced VET trainer or assessor, or new to the role, we are here to help you maintain the balance and keep you up to date with all things VET.

NB. Note that while not a direct repeat of the 2016 program, many aspects will be the same, as this is based on the tasks to be undertaken throughout the year.
