Contributors

Version
VT1.0

Recorded on 04/12/2019 and forming part of Velg Training's Focus Week on Foundation Skills, this webinar demonstrated how foundation skills are pivotal to all we do as trainers/assessors and how we can ensure that those underpinning foundation skills are adequately assessed through tasks that are industry relevant, whatever training package we are teaching from.

Topic Overview

When it comes to assessment of foundation skills, many trainers/assessors think this belongs in the realm of those who teach from the FSK Training Package and does not really apply to them. This webinar will demonstrate how foundation skills are pivotal to all we do as trainers/assessors and how we can ensure that those underpinning foundation skills are adequately assessed through tasks that are industry relevant, whatever training package we are teaching from.
