Employing Skilled Trainers and Assessors: What to look for and encourage in your team!

3 October 2018

Have you set your business up to succeed by having the right people on board?

Any good operator knows that a successful business relies on having the right people. When the ‘right people’ are skilled trainers and assessors, RTOs have extra considerations to apply.

The Standards for RTOs 2015 set out clear expectations with regards to the skills, qualifications and experience a trainer and assessor is expected to have in order to deliver training and assess the competency of others.

So, as the manager or owner of an RTO, when it comes to analysing the information on paper, how do you ensure that your business is getting the right people with the right knowledge, skills and abilities in the right place at the right time?

Join Michelle Charlton to delve into some of the critical components of a successful business outcome based on the team employed.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • What legislation says is a requirement
  • Translating 'skilled' to your business' requirements
  • How to promote ongoing positive culture and why this is important for the ongoing success for your business
  • Q&A
