Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency to be deemed competent.

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievements of each element of competency in a flexible manner. Assessments will incorporate a variety of methods such as class exercises, practical projects, demonstration of techniques in a workplace or the Virtual Enterprise and tests. Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.

In addition to the assessments, formative feedback is provided to the students throughout the duration of the course.

Learning activities will include class-based discussions, exercises, reading and reflection and situated learning in the Virtual Enterprise in order to develop competency including underpinning skills and knowledge.
