Virtual Workshop - Skills First: Training & Assessment Strategies

20th Jul 2020 - 2nd Sep 2020
10:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Online via BlackBoard Collaborate

This online session has been adapted from a full day workshop to a 3-hour online virtual workshop by experienced VDC consultants. 
This highly interactive virtual workshop will be run in a smaller group, with break out rooms for group discussion and ample opportunity to converse with group members and the facilitator to collaborate, share ideas and insights.
This virtual workshop will also include access to an e-book learning resource for those who attend.

 

Through the VET Development Centre (VDC), the current professional learning program is being adapted in response to COVID-19. We aim to meet your needs whilst ensuring our staff, presenters, the community and all those who interact with us are kept as safe as possible.

The Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) is providing free online professional learning to teachers (trainers and assessors) and other staff directly involved in the design and/or review of course content and assessments at Skills First  providers.

Description

The 2018-19 Skills First  VET Funding Contract (extended to 31 December 2020) requires training providers to develop a Training and Assessment Strategy for each course and for each cohort within a particular course. This interactive 3-hour online session with breakout sessions will be centred around the knowledge and skills needed to develop comprehensive Training and Assessment Strategies that meet the 2018-19 VET Funding Contract (extended to December 31 of 2020).

Please ensure you have access to a copy of your Training and Assessment Strategy (TAS) for the virtual workshop.

*Please note - this online session is a virtual workshop and there will be no recording of the session.
