Practical Training and Assessment
Workplace training, workplace assessment, and workplace simulations are training methods which enable students to develop and demonstrate skills in a real-world setting.
ASQA has developed the following guidance to assist providers to deliver practical training and assessment in the workplace or under simulation.
The following example videos have been developed to support providers in deciding how best to structure practical assessment.

The strategies a provider implements for training is aimed at helping a student to learn, reflect on and practice the unit requirements in different contexts.
Training strategies for a unit of competency or qualification, including the amount of training provided, will vary based on the learner cohort and the skills they already hold. A provider can decide how it chooses to deliver training but it must be sufficient so that a student can perform all outcomes of a unit of competency, before undertaking assessment.
