Focus Week

Powered by Cloud Assess, the Future of Assessment

Our ever-popular Focus Weeks are a dedicated week of learning opportunities (one webinar per day) specifically designed to increase knowledge and skills of VET practitioners in targeted topics.

Our fourth Focus Week is dedicated to Foundation Skills.


Foundation Skills are pivotal in enabling participation in the workplace, education and the community! RTOs need to ensure that their Training and Assessment (and that their Trainers and Assessors) scaffolds the development of foundation skills for their learners.

Our Foundation Skills Focus Week has been informed very specifically by feedback from our members! It has been shaped by the following inputs:

  • The Foundation Skills Training Package update is due for release!
  • Foundation Skills is consistently requested as a topic for Professional Development via webinar based on 2018 and 2019 survey results
  • Foundation Skills are fundamentally embedded in the Training and Assessment conducted and inform Training and Assessment practice at its core (perfect currency PD for Trainers and Assessors)
Five content rich webinars, delivered by five Foundation Skills experts form the Focus Week offering. Each webinar can be undertaken independently however, the suite of webinars collectively provides a fantastic holistic approach to PD and comprehensively updates skills and knowledge relating to Foundation Skills.

Each webinar is focused on a different aspect of Foundation Skills, with each of the 5 topics aimed at complimenting and increasing existing knowledge. Learn from our most highly regarded Foundation Skills experts as they share their knowledge and valued content via webinar. Attend one or all! The choice is yours.

What’s changed in the revised Foundation Skill Training Package (FSK)
Presenter: David Tout
Register now
Over the last few years the Foundation Skill Training Package (FSK) has been reviewed and revised. This review was the first opportunity to reflect on the use and the content of the FSK after its initial implementation across Australia. After much consultation and many discussions, a revised structure for the FSK was created and units were revised and updated to reflect the feedback received. This webinar will outline the major changes and enhancements to the FSK qualifications and units.

Assessment of Foundation Skills
Presenter: Rachel Leigh Taylor
Register now
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.

LLN with Lime: A zesty twist to the usual areas of student support
Presenter: Michelle Charlton
Register now
When it comes to thinking about student support, Language, Literacy and Numeracy concerns are those that most frequently spring to mind. But wait! There can be more behind a call for help than just LLN. When it comes to supporting learners throughout their study journey, there’s a lot an RTO can do to enable progression. Rather than a tutorial-type session, this webinar is designed to be thought provoking, to encourage a shaken, not stirred, out-of-the-box with a twist, approach to Clause 1.7.

What do Foundation Skills mean to the general Trainer and Assessor
Presenter: John Dwyer
Register now
This session will consider the implications of foundation skills for 'general' trainers and assessors rather than LLN specialists. I'm not a specialist in Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN). I'm a general trainer/assessor working in my own industry. So what are foundation skills and what am I supposed to do with them?
