Overview of Assessment

Students will study Purchasing and Procurement skills and theory in seminar sessions, tutorials, online activities and through prescribed exercises and assessment work. These concepts will also be explored through the investigation of appropriate real world and simulated environments. 

The student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.

Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including technical requirements documentation, online and in class exercises, practical problem solving exercises (case studies), presentations and practical tests.  Students could expect to participate in projects for "real" clients in the form of importing business plans and feasibility studies.

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.
