Establish effective work environment for learning

Develop a work-based learning pathway 

Establish the learning-facilitation relationship 

Implement work-based learning pathway 

Maintain and develop the learning/facilitation relationship 

Close and evaluate the leraning/facilitation relationship

Details of Learning Activities

This program is designed to provide an assessment only pathway for our industry partners in the Community Services workforce. It does not provide learning activities, but rather individual support as required for candidates through the assessment process.

Teaching Schedule

There is no teaching schedule as this is an assessment only program. Candidates enter the program at times negotiated with the employer and the candidate.

Learning Resources

Prescribed Texts


Other Resources

On enrolment you will be provided with either the hard copy or electronic copy of the Candidate Guide which further outlines the Program, and the knowledge questions and case study format to guide your evidence-gathering for assessment.
The assessor will meet with you and discuss your experience and assist you in planning how your individual pathway will progress, incorporating particular support or guidance you may require.

Overview of Assessment


Assessment in this unit of competency is determined via a combination of assessment strategies which may include :

responses to knowledge and skill questions based on the candidate’s experience

discussion of the candidate’s experience and current practice

specific evidence-gathering tasks in the form of completed case studies

provision of evidence of qualifications

observation conducted in the workplace

professional conversation conducted face-to-face

Assessment Tasks

For this Unit you need to provide evidence of  how you establish effective work environment for learning, develop a work-based learning pathway, establish the learning-facilitation relationship, implement work-based learning pathway, maintain and develop the learning/facilitation relationship, close and evaluate the leraning/facilitation relationship and monitor and review the effectiveness of the work-based learning pathway in your practice in a VET context.

The assessor will discuss with you how your evidence can be assembled to show that you have met these requirements. You will be provided with a case study format to record your experience against the performance criteria. If you are seeking recognition for more than this single unit the case study will also integrate the requirements of this unit with a number of other units in the qualification.

You will also be provided with key knowledge questions to consider that will support your preparation for assessment in this unit.
The assessment timelines are negotiated between you and the assessor, however enrolments need to show an assessment result within RMIT reporting periods. Your assessor will provide you with details of this.
