Volume of Learning & Amount of Training: The 'Constant' & the 'Variable'


Enable a learner to gain the skills & knowledge specified in the relevant training product

Your RTO must ensure the ‘Amount of Training’ you provide is sufficient to enable a learner to gain the skills and knowledge specified in the relevant training product in order to prepare them to be assessed as competent. This is dependent on the cohort and the characteristics that influence the development of the structure of the Training and Assessment Strategy.

Unpacking the specific and important differences between cohorts for the same training product will be used to explain the relationship between the ‘Volume of Learning’ and the ‘Amount of Training’.

Key topics to be covered in the webinar:

  • Clarification of what the ‘big difference’ really is and the solutions that apply
  • Creating a clearly defined ‘directed and structured’ approach to delivery and assessment that support the ‘Amount of Training’ is described in the TAS
  • Consideration of the ‘Amount of Training’ and ‘Volume of Learning’ for training products that are single units or Skill Sets"
