Webinar: Back to Basics – How does a unit of competency really work?

Velg Training


Recorded on 22/10/2019 as part of National VET PD Week, this webinar explored the fundamental components of a unit of competency to remind us about the way we should really look at a unit.

Topic overview:

This webinar will explore the fundamental components of a unit of competency to remind us about the way we should really look at a unit.

A unit is a standard. It is not a set of teaching notes or an assessment method! It is not a “what do I do on Monday” statement.  It defines, and suggests a way of measuring, “competence” with regard to a specified job role/function.

This webinar answered the question: How does a unit of competence really work?  The webinar used actual unit components and actual assessment items to illustrate points made.
