The assessor will have met with you and discussed your experience and assisted 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 competence in interpreting learning environments and delivery requirements, preparing session plans, preparing resources for delivery, delivering and facilitating training sessions, and supporting and monitoring learning  - all in a VET context and for at least two different learner groups, and for a series of sessions.

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 assist you in recording 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.
