Since the introduction of the mandatory foundation skills section in units of competency (Standards for Training Packages, 2012), there is uncertainty about how to ensure sufficient and suitable coverage of foundation skills.
This webinar for vocational trainers and assessors will briefly cover why these skills are important to unit outcomes, and where critical foundation skill triggers are in units and their assessment requirements. It will model a common sense approach to building foundation skills into training and assessment.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • ‘Unpack’ the foundation skills that are both implicit and explicit in a unit of competency
  • Ensure that the type and level of foundation skill support built into training and assessment are suitable.
Facilitated by: Jana Scomazzon

Over the extensive period of time that Jana Scomazzon has been facilitating PD, participants have spoken of her deep knowledge of VET policy, practice and product; the clarity with which she shares that knowledge; and her engaging presentation style. A former adult literacy practitioner and current government-endorsed Training Package quality evaluator, Jana is also a recognised expert in foundation skills; language, literacy and numeracy; and in identifying and addressing learner support needs in the VET context. Her PD for vocational trainers and assessors focuses on providing practical strategies and tips.
