Webinar Focus Week - 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 2018, newly inspired 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 brand new content of these Focus Weeks  has been informed by the following inputs:

  • The most common non-compliance areas or findings (both as a result of internal auditing and external auditing)
  • Feedback from our members! You asked for PD that focused on the 'practical' that accompanies the conceptual

Our first Focus Week is dedicated to Assessment.  Five  content rich webinars, delivered by five assessment experts, will drill right down into assessment practices.  The webinars will  pay particular attention to how assessment is both developed and administered, ensuring a focal point on continually improving these practices.
