How to Determine & Manage the Amount of Training

Purchase for $95.00 (AUD) incl. GST

Use the AQF Volume of Learning Indicators as a benchmark

Learn an effective method to determine the amount of training needed to allow learners to develop the skills and knowledge required by the relevant unit(s), before they are assessed.

Competency-based training is about developing competencies and not the time required for individual learners to achieve them. The training will depend on their prior skills, knowledge and other factors. However, RTOs are required to determine an amount of training (weeks, hours) suitable for each learner’s cohort.

This webinar will help you to determine the amount of training required for a particular training program ensuring compliance and the integrity of the unit/qualification outcomes.

You will learn how to set up the learning journey for your learner’s cohort based on their previous skills, knowledge and experience; your delivery approach, and the complexity of the course to be delivered, using the AQF Volume of Learning Indicators as a benchmark.

By the end of the webinar, you will be able to construct a rationale to demonstrate compliance with clauses 1.1 and 1.2 of the Standards for RTOs for all your courses (shorter and longer durations). You will also have some flowcharts and forms ready to use in your RTO, and an Action Plan to measure the Impact of this course.
