Since the introduction of the mandatory foundation skills in units of competency (Standards for Training Packages, 2012), there is uncertainty among vocational trainers about how to ensure sufficient and suitable coverage of foundation skills in their planning and delivery.
This webinar will model a common sense approach that vocational trainers can use to build foundation skills into their training plans.
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 plans are suitable.
Facilitated by: Jana Scomazzon
