Statement on competency-based training

This nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualification is competency-based. This means that you will develop the practical skills and knowledge (competency) needed to do the job you are training for. Assessment in a competency-based program is about being able to demonstrate that you have developed these practical skills and areas of knowledge, and that you can perform at the standard required in the job. This could involve showing an assessor how you plan and carry out tasks and explaining to the assessor how you know what you are doing. If you are working, your work supervisor may provide the assessor with a report on your competency. If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (eg. through prior paid or voluntary work experience), you can be assessed and have your skills and knowledge formally recognised at any point during the program. There is information on the RMIT website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/tafe

Employability Skills

In addition to developing skills and knowledge for a particular job, this program also helps you to develop broad work skills, known as Employability Skills. There are eight employability skills:

  • communication
  • teamwork
  • problem solving
  • initiative and enterprise
  • planning and organising
  • self-management
  • learning
  • technology

Employability skills are “embedded” in the units of competency in your program. This means that you will develop these skills as part of your learning, and when you demonstrate that you are competent in your particular job skills and knowledge, you are also demonstrating that you have developed employability skills. Further information about the employability skills you will develop in this program is available at:
