Member's Support Hub Webinar: Trainers/Assessors

30 June 2023
Online via Zoom Webinar

The Velg Training Member's Support Hub combines free, live webinars presented by our VET Expert every quarter
with an ongoing LinkedIn group for our Members exclusively.

Modelled informally on the community of practice concept, we want to provide a relatively unstructured platform to help you find, think about, and improve your ideas, tools, and practices; share your thoughts and experiences; and encourage ongoing discussion about shared ideas and issues.

Are you looking for some guidance when it comes to Trainer/Assessor Competence?

Ever felt unsure about 'how much' currency is enough?

Join David Garner on June 30, 2023, for our second Member's Support Hub webinar,
where you will explore some of the most common concerns relating to Competence and Currency.

As trainers and assessors who receive a lot of different advice, we often feel a little unsure about exactly what's needed to demonstrate Vocational Competence and Training/Assessment currency.

Our members-only Compliance Chats have highlighted a range of common challenges members have faced.

Some were looking for a bit of guidance and a few tips to help them feel confident in their approach. Others needed to know just where to start.

This session focuses on some of the confusion around competence and currency requirements. e.g.

  • Vocational competence - demonstrating equivalence

  • Currency of industry skills

  • Currency in the VET environment as well as training and assessment practice

You can also help shape the focus of this session!

If you have a specific query about the re-registration or addition to scope process - please submit your Question on Notice here before Friday 23rd June 2023.
