Velg2Go: Trainer and Assessor Mentoring: The Essentials

18 May - 26 June 2020

The role of the trainer and assessor requires a balance between compliance and the practice of training and assessing.

Clause 1.16 of the Standards for RTOs 2015: The RTO ensures that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of the knowledge and practice of vocational training, learning and assessment including competency based training and assessment.

This 6-week, self-paced, online course is the perfect PD for Trainers and Assessors who want to gain or maintain their essential skills and knowledge!

Our Trainer and Assessor Mentoring: The Essentials program offers a flexible approach to your continued development/maintenance of skills, knowledge and expertise as a trainer and assessor.

Unlike traditional self-paced, online learning, Velg2Go couples our exclusive content with cutting-edge opportunities to interact. Participants of this course have loved the diversity of the activities, the external links, extension activities that provide opportunities to relate learnings to their own work practices. They have valued the unique online engagement with other course participants, that enables learning with like-minded people – not just reading online material.

Your course facilitator will support your mentoring journey via discussion forums. You will experience learning through custom designed, multi-media learning materials that will change the way you interact online!

This program provides a range of learning outcomes directly related to the Standards, training and assessment, training package fundamentals, and your HR requirements.

It will help you form a simply aligned relationship to compliance requirements as they apply to your role as a trainer and assessor and you walk away with over 15 supportive resources/templates (valued at over $190.00*).

So why not register now for the most convenient PD around and invest time (approximately 1 hour a week for 6 weeks) in you?
