Speed Training for Assessors / 19 November 2019

Looking for a flexible PD option to contribute to currency in TAEASS402 Assess competence? Look no further than our Speed Training for Assessors event!


Speed Training for Assessors provides professional development that directly aligns with the unit TAEASS402 Assess competence. Five main elements from this core unit of TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment* will each have a dedicated webinar session to unpack their key components, providing you with a refresher of these concepts as well as extending your understanding.

*Note that this is professional development only. Velg Training is not an RTO and this program does not result in the issuance of a statement of attainment.

Can't attend all 5 webinars live? Don't worry!  Register for the package of 5, attend those that suit your schedule and you will be sent the recordings for any you missed. Watch them within 2 weeks of the live event, contact the Velg Training Events Team to advise you have completed them, then you will be issued with a Certificate of Completion. Each webinar is part of a 5 piece package, and cannot be purchased individually.

This event content has been designed to explore concepts that fundamentally align with assessing competence. It has been developed for Assessors who are both seasoned and new.

This special event provides the opportunity for you to register for 5 x 45 min webinars and gain some real insights from an Assessment Expert! Kerri Buttery truly understands your role, responsibilities and challenges when it comes to assessment.

9.00am - 9.45am
Preparing for the assessment

Register now
The act of conducting assessment doesn’t just happen – it takes careful planning and preparation to ensure that a whole range of items align to create ‘the perfect storm’ for assessment. This webinar considers how to prepare for assessment.
10.15am - 11.00am
Gathering quality evidence

Register now
Gathering evidence is easy, right? Watch the student do a few things, make a few notes, tick all done. Or is it? How do we ensure that the evidence that is gathered is quality evidence and worthy of contributing towards a judgement? This webinar considers how to gather quality evidence.
11.30am - 12.15pm
Supporting the candidate

Register now
What is the best form of recommendation? Word of mouth. A student is going to recommend the RTO they attended not because of the piece of paper they receive at the end, but because of the support they received along the way. Student success can often rely on the level of support and guidance provided by their trainer or assessor. This webinar will examine how to support a student through the assessment process.
1.15pm - 2.00pm
Making the assessment decision

Register now
The culmination of the assessment process is making an assessment decision. Was the students’ performance satisfactory or not satisfactory? Are they competent or not competent? This webinar examines the process of making a decision on assessment performance and final judgement of competency.
2.30pm - 3.15pm
Recording and reporting assessment

Register now
Student progress can be tricky to track, especially when units are clustered or there are multiple trainers and assessors delivering the course. However, it is a critical component of the assessment process as qualifications and statements of attainment cannot be issued without appropriate record keeping. This webinar will consider options for recording and reporting assessment outcomes.

All webinars are listed in Australian Eastern Standard Time (QLD)
