Focus Week

Powered by Cloud Assess, the Future of Assessment

As part of Velg Training’s vision to continue to educate, inspire and empower Australia's VET community, we have included in our Professional Development calendar for 2019, the ever-popular Focus Weeks! A dedicated week of learning opportunities (one webinar per day) specifically designed to increase knowledge and skills of VET practitioners in targeted topics. 

The 2019 Focus Week for Administration is made up of five content rich webinars, delivered by our Administration Expert Angela McGregor and has been designed to provide convenient, relevant and supportive professional development that will assist anyone who plays an administrative role (or manages administrative processes) within an RTO.

About Angela:

In addition to consulting to hundreds of RTOs since 1999, Angela set up her own RTO in 2003 which she sold in 2012.  
She has first hand experience in the establishment and maintenance of administrative processes.  
As a consultant to RTOs Angela is often contracted to review and improve systems, develop policies and procedures, and training and coaching administrative staff.

Administration of systems, processes and practices in an RTO is critical to its success!

Understanding and continuously improving the administration of an RTO is something RTO Managers, Operational Managers, Administrators and Trainers and Assessors all play an important role in.

The brand new content of this Focus Week has been informed by feedback from our customers!  Record keeping, entry requirements, student support, trainer files, validation have all been requested as topics for further development by attendees of our 2018 Administration related workshops and webinars.

If you are a new or seasoned Administrator, a Manager responsible for implementation of administrative process in your RTO, an RTO Manager or Compliance Officer, join us this June and get focussed on Administration!

Training and Assessment Strategy? That’s just for the trainers isn’t it?

Training and Assessment Strategies provide guidance on course delivery, they are an incredibly powerful document (or set of documents)!
A TAS is not just something that is provided to the auditor, or to trainers so they know what they are delivering.  It is a purposeful record informs a range of administrative functions: from setting up a course in AVETMISS through to the scheduling of validation activities.
Join Angela for this webinar as she highlights the ‘power of the TAS’ and the impacts it can have across administration of procedures within your RTO.

The What, Why and How of Trainer and Assessor Files

In her experience, Angela is often asked the what, why and how of trainer and assessor files and records.  Administration of trainer and assessor files is often a reactive process, triggered by an impending audit.  So how should Trainer and Assessor files be monitored and maintained?
This webinar will provide guidance about the minimum requirements for trainer and assessor files, how often they need updating and what needs to be kept to ensure your RTO has evidence of trainer and assessor competency and currency.
In this webinar Angela will provide hints on how to apply a systematic approach to the review and maintenance of files, with a focus on ongoing compliance, rather than panic for an audit.

Assessment Validation: Making it happen!

Validation is a process that often is seen as quite isolated to just the members of the validation panel.  But takes a range of inputs to schedule, organise and just make it happen!  
This webinar will ensure that you develop an understanding of the compliance obligations for assessment validation, when it needs to occur, who should be involved and what records need to be retained:
  • What are the minimum requirements?
  • Who needs to be involved?
  • What happens after validation?
  • Incorporating assessment validation in the continuous improvement plan

All webinar times are shown in AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
