Premium Sponsor

Cloud Assess is an online assessment tool created by and for the Vocational Education and Training sector. 
 
We believe VET is synonymous with individuals that are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives. Unfortunately we work in a space where bureaucracy places extra strain on those who support personal development. For this reason we worked hard to find a way to keep the passion alive in VET, and it’s one of the reasons why RTOs love Cloud Assess. 
 
RTOs can say goodbye to the heavy burden of paperwork and hello to efficiency, transparency and simplicity. Cloud Assess makes your job easier.
 
Assessors spend less time processing, administrators have more control over users, compliance teams have transparency and RTO Managers see productivity across the student lifecycle.
 
Feature packed, the suite includes:
  • Assessment management and deployment
  • Workflows to automate your processes
  • Branding to your requirements
  • Integration with your systems

2016 Virtual VET Summit Event Feedback

Being able to remain in office yet gain latest professional information.
R Rock - Dalton Training Services

Very beneficial for me. It sorted out a lot of the smaller areas I was unsure of. I liked the passion and the knowledge each trainer had for the area they presented. Thank you. I am very grateful.
J Saxby - Victory Life International Bible Training Centre

"Great to be able to be in the office at the same time as tuning in to the training."
D Conway - One World for Children

"The efficiency of accessing this information so easily in the virtual setting was fabulous. Interaction with other delegates was also very satisfying. I think many more questions were asked of presenters using this platform than in a face-to-face group."
A Bowden - TAFE NSW New England Institute

"It was a fantastic way to access information without losing time at work. This is valuable for all of us running RTO's."
A Williams - College for Law Education and Training

"Excellent and cost-effective. Ability to go back and view presentations a great advantage."
M Kimber - Health Star Training Network

"Up to date information from knowledgeable presenters."
K Gould - Western Sydney Institute of TAFE

"An outstanding opportunity well delivered. Huuuuuge congrats to VELG on the quality and usual high levels of professionalism the summit was delivered with :) "
J Guinea - Narbil Training

"Thank you for providing a flexible, online environment to learn from such professional presenters. Congratulations to the Velg Training team for the level of service to participants and the ability to troubleshoot when necessary. Please note the 3 scored under the interactivity question does not reflect dissatisfaction with the presentation methods just reflecting my preference to access the maximum amount of presentation time rather than question time."
D Jeanes - SMG

"Content was excellent and the presenters were interesting."
L Watson - Association of Children's Welfare Agencies / Centre for Community Welfare Training
