This one day Forum includes VET industry updates as well as two practical workshops on: Building Quality into assessment practices to obtain both compliance and quality outcomes; and Requirements for Practitioner Currency. Industry updates on the day include:

  • State of the VET Nation and national consultations underway including “unduly short courses” – Michael Hall, ACPET NT

    NT VET Investment Framework – Skilling Territorians and NT Workforce Priorities – Catherine White Department of Trade, Business and Innovation

Workshop One
Building quality into assessment practices to obtain both compliance and quality outcomes

This workshop will examine the processes we can use to create assessments that can provide such outcomes. It looks at developing assessments from the heart as well as the head and considers the opportunities that assessment validation has in confirming with others the quality of our practices.

Workshop Two
Currency and the Value it creates for all stakeholders

This workshop ‘unpacks’ what maintaining vocational competence and currency involves and goes on to provide guidance on how it can be planned and recorded to meet compliance requirements as well as adding value to our everyday vocational practices.
