Skills First: Quality Assessment Practices

1st Apr 2019 - 15th May 2019
09:00 AM - 04:00 PM
VET Development Centre, Level 8 379 Collins Street Melbourne Victoria Australia 3000

In response to feedback from contracted training providers, the Department of Education and Training (DET) is funding professional development to support training providers in maintaining quality assessment practices that are consistent with their obligations as Registered Training Organisations and contracted providers. 


Workshop:
The VET Development Centre (VDC) has developed an interactive one-day workshop focussed on the knowledge and skills required to maintain quality assessment practices. The workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss and explore assessment practices, assessment tool design and validation, and share best practice ideas from contracted training providers.

Topics covered include:

  • Assessment Essentials
  • The importance of maintaining an effective assessment system
  • Exploring poor assessment practices and assessment myths
  • Analysing assessment design –
    o Developing assessor’s skills in selecting effective assessment methods.
    o Assessment tool components
  • Validations- empowering you to contribute to improving assessment practices in your organisation 


Who can attend?

Skills First teachers (trainers and assessors) and other staff directly involved in the design and/or review of course content and assessments.

Participants will also ideally have a basic understanding of the current 2018-19 Skills First VET Funding Contract.

This program is only for training providers with a Skills First contract. You can check your eligibility here.
