Webinar: Third Party Reports and Assessment

13th Sep 2019
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM



Undertaking assessments in the workplace has many benefits. Not only does it allow students to demonstrate how they are meeting workplace expectations and job ready skills, but it also provides opportunities to nurture and sustain effective industry partnerships. Effective partnerships can extend to employer engagement in workplace assessment.

This webinar explores elements of a practice framework that promotes and sustains employer participation in assessment. We consider when workplaces are appropriate sites for assessment, assessors’ responsibilities, constraints on employer participation, and strategies for workplace evidence gathering.

Participants will gain confidence in their role as a workplace assessor, and their rights, roles and obligations.
