Target Audience Pre-Apprenticeship Course This course is delivered to VET in School students who may be considering a career in the Metal & Engineering industry. As such the RTO recognises the need to deliver pre-apprenticeship knowledge and skills while not impacting on a students potential employability in the industry. This course provides a general introduction to Engineering processes and does not intend to develop industry/trade level skills Participants in this program are all enrolled in the NSW HSC. They include students in the 13 19 year age group. Participation is inclusive and may include: Students completing year 11 & 12 HSC units School Based Trainees Students who require literacy and numeracy support Regional students Students from NESB The students may have varied previous experiences in related workplaces and in related areas of school and other studies. They will therefore bring a variety of background knowledge and skills to the course. They may have chosen the course to gain: - qualifications leading to further study or employment in this industry - skills that will enhance general employment opportunities - skills as part of a life skills program (for students with special learning needs)

Are there School-based Trainees in the class? () NO YES

A copy of the training plan is held on site.

Students with special needs Students with special education needs may require adjustments to learning and assessment strategies as well as additional time to demonstrate the required level of competence. Reasonable adjustment should be based upon the individual students needs and abilities. They may require extended time and additional support, both off the job and in the workplace. Reasonable adjustments to delivery and assessment are appropriate provided they conform to the industry competency standards as expressed in the Training Package.

Are there students with special needs in the class? () NO

YES

Consultation contributing to the development of this Training and Assessment Strategy This Training and Assessment Strategy has been developed through effective consultation with: industry; delivering VET teachers; school VET coordinators; RTO personnel; regional personnel; skills council benchmarks; and industry employers/enterprises across the region. Regular liaison occurs with the work placement service provider, Youth Express, and the regional industry consultative group IAG to obtain industry feedback on training, delivery and assessment, and industry benchmarks. Feedback is gained from participants at training and assessment validation professional learning workshops, direct from industry during students work placement, informal and formal discussions regarding student placement, records from work placement, third party employer evidence and evaluations. Consultation additionally occurs through industry currency visits linking VET teachers with current industry practise and benchmarks for delivery and assessment of the units of competency. Records of consultation and review are maintained. Training and Assessment Staff The RTO complies with the latest National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) determination regarding the training and assessment competencies to be held by VET teachers. The Department of Education and Communities has verified the relevant qualifications of each of the VET teachers in its employ who will be delivering AQF qualifications. All newly trained VET teachers placed with the RTO attend an orientation program. The RTO facilitates a range of opportunities for trained VET teachers to support the maintenance of relevant experience and currency. The Quality Management System (QMS) contains data for each VET Teacher that includes, records of qualifications, experience and currency for both course content and training and assessment competence relevant to the units within the qualifications being delivered. (insert link to these records) This course may be delivered and assessed by an individual VET teacher or in a team approach based on the units of competency being delivered and assessed, and the need for co-assessment, where relevant, to meet the latest requirements of the NSSC. Training and Assessment Arrangements This course is delivered over one year and comprises 230 hrs of training over that period. This qualification can be completed through a pathway as described in this strategy or options are available for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). The course comprises face-to-face delivery and a minimum 70 hours of work placement in an industry that can provide experiences related to those included in the course structure. Delivery and assessment arrangements in the classroom and workplace are set out in the Assessment Plan and Scope and Sequence sections of this document. Assessment evidence gathering techniques and events include practical tasks, observation, questioning, written activities and may also involve third party reports from work placement or work in industry. Assessment may be conducted at the delivery site, in simulated work environments, through work placement (where relevant), or through a combination of these modes. It may be appropriate to include other delivery options from time to time such as distance education, video conferencing, online options, field visits and partnerships with other RTOs. Partnership arrangements are determined on an individual basis and the formal agreement for the delivery of training and assessment is then retained by the RTO.

Training and Assessment Strategy Review When there is a change to the Training Package that impacts on this Training and Assessment Strategy (TAS), the RTO Manager will notify relevant staff and a review of the TAS will be initiated. The Training and Assessment Strategy will also be systematically reviewed and approved to ensure that any organisational resources and industry and student needs that may change are considered. This systematic review will be performed on an annual basis and any recommended changes will involve discussion with VET teachers, assessors, and the RTO Management Team. A record of the relevant data, feedback or changes that contribute to the review and its approval will be maintained. NB: The RTO complies with Australian Quality Standards Authority (ASQA) General Direction: Transition and Teach Out. When there are major changes to the Training Package the RTO Management Team and VET teachers will review the changes made (in consultation with NSW Board of Studies and Department of Education and Communities) and create a plan to transition to the new training package requirements and cater for teach-out arrangements for students where required. Pathways Information is provided in Board of Studies (BOS) course descriptors prior to enrolment and via the RTO Course Descriptors prior to the commencement of training. All students who complete these qualifications are provided with advice on employment and training options through the course VET teacher or career specialists. Mandatory work placement provides real work experiences for the student to determine possible future pathways. Students may pursue higher qualifications through other training providers or obtain apprenticeships or traineeships through employment. This Metal and Engineering training package qualifications are flexible to meet a range of jobs and to support a wide range of career pathways. They allow for various entry options, including direct entry at all qualification levels, and credit transfer between qualifications. If a qualification is only partly achieved, a Statement of Attainment is issued for successful achievement of single or multiple units of competency. At a later date, a person can undertake further skill development or training and be assessed against additional competencies until they have achieved all of the competencies required for the full qualification. Certificates and transcripts are issued on behalf of the RTO by the NSW Board of Studies. Students can exit at any point and receive a Statement of Attainment for the competencies achieved.

Infrastructure, Resources and Equipment VET teachers and/or students have access to a range of approved resources: Staff to assist learners with special needs. Practice opportunities and assessment opportunities in the workplace. MEM10105 Certificate I Engineering http://training.gov.au which provides qualification packaging rules and individual unit of competency detail Workcover Authority NSW http://www.workcover.nsw.gov.au/newlegislation2012/Pages/default.aspx Industry Curriculum Implementation Guides (ICIG) that provides information on resource requirements. https://detwww.det.nsw.edu.au/directorates/vet_schools/vet-inSchools/frameworks.html. Site resource requirements are as listed in the ICIG checklist.

NSW Board of Studies syllabus documents and support package which provides information on resources and support for students with special learning needs http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/syllabus_hsc/primary-industries.html The RTO provides training and assessment materials and tools, version controlled documentation; and links to relevant websites. www.training.gov.au link to ICIF If VET teachers use off site resources, they must also provide evidence of an agreement with the resource provider and provide a copy of this agreement to the RTO. Assessment Validation Process A systematic approach is taken towards assessment validation. Validation of assessment occurs according to the established Assessment Validation Procedure that references the Validation Schedule and validation meeting recording tools. Stakeholders in the assessment validation process include RTO management staff, supervisors, VET teachers and, where possible, industry representatives. These stakeholders initially discuss and reach agreement about the validity, reliability, fairness and flexibility of the assessment process and assessment tools/instruments; and subsequently meet, post-assessment, to validate the assessment evidence and the judgements made on the evidence to ensure it is valid, authentic, current and sufficient. Agreed outcomes from these validation meetings are used to continuously improve all aspects of assessment. Records of validation activities are maintained. Validation strategies include: - Network validation meetings where common tasks, tools and benchmarks are developed - Validation workshops with a range of stakeholders - In school staff meetings across industry areas - Partnerships with other trainers, mentors and/or industry experts for delivery and assessment - Analysing and comparing work samples to support consistent VET teacher judgement - VET teachers returning to industry to observe and update knowledge of industry standards - Competitions such as WorldSkills - Supervising and assessing students in the workplace where applicable, and acting on employer feedback
