ASSESSMENT PATHWAYS including Recognition of Prior Learning
Assessments require students to apply their knowledge and skills within a simulated and actual work environment. A simulated workplace is provided online to assist with completing some of the assessments to determine underpinning knowledge and skill.  You will also need a practice environment so you can perform some of these assessment activities.

Types of assessment tasks take the form of:
  • Questionnaires
  • Case Study tasks
  • Portfolio’s
  • Video presentation of facilitation skills - other options are available
Assessments are conducted on-line and submitted via the learning management system (LMS) or can be emailed or mailed into Connect Training Group for assessment.

Portfolios are undertaken as part of completing this qualification and which require you to have access to a workplace or practice environment so you can train a group of 8 or more candidate’s, for 3 training sessions each, for a minimum of 40 minutes duration. 

You will also need to arrange the assessment of 3 candidates.  The assessment decisions need to be made in collaboration with a qualified VET trainer, such as your Connect Training and/or a qualified VET trainer you may have access to in your workplace environment.  

Recognition of Prior Learning or current competency (RPL)
If you feel you already have competence in any of the units within this qualification, you can apply to have these skills recognised through the RPL process.

Evidence of work experience can be used in your RPL application. A formal interview also forms part of your RPL process.  Please contact Connect Training Group for more information on this option.

Direct Credit Transfer
You may also be eligible for exemption for previous study if you have a statement of attainment or certificate for previous study that has been issued by an accredited Registered Training Organisation. Certified copies of the original evidence must accompany your application as well as proof of currency, e.g. resume or contact details of referee as per Connect Training Groups’ policies.
