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 brand new content of this Focus Week  has been informed by feedback from our customers! A review of the 2017-2018 feedback from all event attendees has been collated to reveal the most commonly requested PD topics related to Assessment.  You asked - we deliver!

The 2019 Focus Week for Assessment is made up of  five  content rich webinars, delivered by five assessment experts and has been designed to provide convenient, relevant and supportive professional development that will contribute as  currency in the continued development of your assessment practices.  

The perfect way to gain current knowledge in vocational training and learning that informs your training and assessment  (per Standards for Registered Training Organisations, Clause 1.13)

Sometimes we get so caught up in the detail we forget about the “big picture”.
Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competency has been achieved.  This webinar will look at a number of assessment issues and explore key assessment questions about the purpose of assessment, features of CBA, the methods and tools we can use as well as the assessor's role in the assessment process.

Capturing Quality Evidence: Third Party Reports
Presenter: Kerri Buttery
Register now
One of the benefits of assessment in the VET sector is the ability to use experience in the workplace as part of formal assessment. The use of other people (an ‘other party’) in collecting evidence is a valuable strategy for gaining evidence of ‘everyday performance’ rather than performance carried out as part of the formal assessment process.  This webinar explores how quality evidence can be adequately captured using a Third Party Report.
Friday, 5 April 2019
11.00 am - 12:00pm (AEST QLD)
Members: $55.00 (incl. GST)
Non-Members: $85.00 (incl. GST)
RPL: What IS the Professional Conversation?
Presenter: John Price
Register now
A professional conversation, when used appropriately, has the opportunity to gather ‘direct evidence’ through oral questioning.   The concept that RPL candidates for any training product are ‘legitimately presenting as competent’,  is central to a user-friendly approach to making an RPL assessment judgement. This webinar will explore how a  professional conversation enables the candidate to provide a clear response to questions on how they have ‘applied’ their knowledge in a practical situation in the workplace.

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