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.
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.
