Statement on competency-based training
This nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) program is competency based. This means that it is designed to enable you to develop the practical skills and knowledge needed to perform duties and tasks in 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.
If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program you can be assessed and have these 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).Top of page
In addition to developing skills and knowledge for a particular job, this program also aims to help you to develop broad work skills, known as Employability Skills. There are eight employability skills:
- problem solving
- initiative and enterprise
- planning and organising
Employability skills are “embedded” in the units of competency in your program. When you demonstrate that you are competent in your particular job skills and knowledge, you are also demonstrating that you have developed relevant employability skills. More information around Employability Skills can be provided by your teacher.
