Since the introduction of the mandatory foundation skills in the unit of competency (Standards for Training Packages, 2012), there is uncertainty among vocational assessors about how to factor those skills into assessment plans. This webinar will show you, the vocational assessor, how to ‘unpack’ the foundation skill requirements in a unit of competency and its associated assessment requirements.

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Identify the foundation skills essential to being deemed competent in a unit, including knowing how to respond to the statement in a unit’s foundation skills section ‘The foundation skills essential to this unit are explicit in the performance criteria’
  • Build an assessment plan that holistically integrates assessment of the unit’s required foundation skills into the assessment of its required technical skills.
Facilitated by: Jana Scomazzon

Over the 16 years 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.
