A Guide to completing the trainer matrix - IBSA Academy

5 December 2017

Like most, you have entered the world of Vocational Education and Training (VET) because you are passionate about your chosen industry and want to make significant contributions to its growth and development through training others. You just want to train, but this task has become an increasingly challenging one. RTO administration and compliance is moving and changing at a rapid rate; not only do you have to be an expert in your chosen field, you also need to be an expert in VET. It’s a tough call, and it can seem all too hard to climb the compliance mountain.

Many trainers find this process daunting, frustrating and time consuming. You may be one of them, and you’re not alone. It may even be holding you back from getting the job. It shouldn’t. The time you invest here will be well worth it.

This practical session will provide you with some handy hints to complete the template and, most importantly, explain how to keep it updated so you’ll never have to start from scratch again!

Key topics covered within webinar

  • Why you need to keep a current trainer skills matrix – it’s all about the ‘Standards’
  • Where to begin
  • How to demonstrate Vocational Competence for Vocational Education and Training
  • How to demonstrate Vocational Competence for Industry
  • How to demonstrate Currency in Vocational Education and Industry
  • How to document your evidence
