Competency Based Training
Assessment is an integral part of all training courses. At Astute Training Pty Ltd we collect evidence using Competency Based Training from students which proves their ability to demonstrate skills, knowledge, attitude and application required to perform effectively in the relevant industries.
Competency Based Training ensures that students have a portfolio of evidence collected by a variety of means such as:
- Classroom exercises and workbook activities
- Assignments and Projects
- Group Activities
- Verbal and/or written questions
- Written activities
- Observation in the workplace or simulated environment
Qualifications are made up of Units of Competency (UOC) or subjects. The grading of your assessments will be Competent (C) which means that students have met the standard criteria or Not Yet Competent (NYC) which means a student needs some improvement. If a student is graded NYC the student will be given the opportunity to re do the assessment and achieve competence.
Assessment dates are provided on the first day of class via student timetables. Have a look at our Guide to Assessments at Astute Training Pty Ltd!
The role of an Astute Training Pty Ltd assessor is to objectively assess and judge a student’s evidence against a set of standards. Assessors at Astute Training Pty Ltd all have sound industry knowledge and hold an appropriate TAE40110 Qualification in Training and Education.
Our assessors will
- Use their expertise to make fair and objective judgements
- Ensure the evidence meets the standards
- Ensure that evidence is valid, authentic, current and sufficient
If a student feels that they have not been treated fairly in assessments, or in any other area of their time with Astute Training Pty Ltd, they have the right to appeal decisions and make complaints. Please see our Student Handbooks for detailed information on the complaints process.
At course completion students will be issued with certification and transcriptions appropriate to their competency of all successfully completed units.by
