Delivery strategies

This course is focused on developing skills in vocational education and training and will allow students to gain real experience in the classroom, practice in small groups of up to 16 students, and undertake holistic assessments based on current work practices. It is expected that a full time study load will involve up to 20 hours a week of study. Delivery strategies include:

Delivery in a classroom environment or via video conferencing by experienced and industry skilled trainer

Simulated experience on a weekly basis

Self-paced trainer led activities to reinforce, extend and reflect on what has been learnt in class

Assessment strategies

A range of assessment methods are used to collect evidence from learners. These methods include:

  • Portfolio of evidence assessed by a Trainer/ Assessor of this course. This portfolio would include workbooks completed at the students' own time and other evidence such as learner-produced
  • Self-observation
  • Third-party reports from supervisors or other professional workers at an RTO as required
  • Critical Reflections of work undertaken in demonstrating skills
  • Presentation of information in the workplace or in a simulated work environment
  • Written reports 
  • Knowledge based exercises which demonstrate key knowledge across subjects in the form of quizzes or short answer exercises.

Please note assessments involve significant work both during and after the sessions. You will have maximum of two attempts to submit your assessments.  If you are considered Not Yet Competent after the second submission with significant gaps prevailing in your submissions, you may be asked to re-enrol into the course.  Where a learner does not satisfactorily complete the full qualification, a statement of attainment will be issued for those units that have been fully completed to a satisfactory level.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Parramatta Community College recognises that some learners may have already delivered training as part of their job or as a trainer. If you believe you can provide sufficient evidence (according to the rules of evidence – see Standard 1.8 - 1.12 under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015) of your current experience and/or relevant qualifications that match the competency requirements of any of the units in this course, please consult with the Education Manager prior to enrolling to apply for recognition. The RPL application will be reviewed by a qualified trainer/assessor. Please note that applying for RPL may not automatically result in issuing of the qualification or statement of attainment. No refund will be made in case of a partial qualification or if no certificate can be issued as a result of the RPL assessment.
