You be the judge.

Completing a fair workplace assessment demands understanding and accuracy. Enter a collaborative and stimulating learning environment for a five-day journey through the fundamental principles of assessment, where you will learn the basics and practice their application with the support of an expert facilitator. We use an integrated delivery approach that includes discussions, simulations, case studies and research activities.

In addition to covering the various units of competency, you will also learn how to design effective assessment tools, conduct a number of assessments, practise providing constructive feedback, as well as the development, trial and validation of assessment tools.

Did you know that you may be able to complete your qualification even quicker with our Recognition+ service? Just like Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), your prior formal study can count towards a new qualification. Contact our recognition coordinator for more information.
