The Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) which includes Credit Transfer (CT) involves the assessment of evidence supplied by the candidate that the assessor deems satisfies the unit of competency requirements that makes up the course. Evidence is gathered and assessed through a range of methods which are explained more fully in Australian Academy of Trade & Technology ’s RPL Kit.

Australian Academy of Trade & Technology provides assessment by RPL and CT, as fee-for-service. No gap training is provided by Australian Academy of Trade & Technology. If gaps are identified, candidate will be awarded Statement of Attainment for those units for which RPL has been granted.  Those not gaining full RPL are invited to reapply at a later date. Alternatively, they will be supported in locating an RTO with the units on scope so that training and assessment may be conducted.

Enrol into the Course

Validation is a quality review process. It involves checking that assessment tools produce valid, sufficient, current and authentic evidence to enable reasonable judgements to be made as to whether the requirements of the relevant aspects of the Training Package can be met. It includes reviewing and making recommendations for future improvements to the assessment tool, process and/or outcomes. This process is normally conducted prior to the use of a resource.

Moderation is the process of bringing assessment judgements and standards into alignment. It is a process that ensures the same standards are applied to all assessment results within the same Unit(s) of Competency. It is an active process in the sense that adjustments to assessor judgements are made to overcome differences in the difficulty of
the tool and/or the severity of judgements. This process is normally conducted after the use of a resource.

The validation process also includes activities that focus on providing opportunities for trainers/assessors to check, confirm and discuss their interpretation of the standards, the evidence requirements and the basis on which they make assessment decisions.

The CEO will convene an assessment validation meeting to be held prior to the issuance of the assessment resource for the first time. This meeting will confirm that the assessment resources are suited for the application on that site and that any necessary adjustment is undertaken prior to release for use. Approval for release will be made by staff of the RTO authorised to approve the resources, this will include at least an assessor, compliance staff.

Each training/assessment product will be externally moderated at least once every five (5) years, with at least 50% of products validated within the first three years of each five-year cycle, considering the relative risks of all of the training products on the RTO’s scope of registration, including those risks identified by the VET Regulator.

The external moderation team will consist of The CEO and trainer/assessor for the unit of competency and a trainer assessor from an alternate qualification.

The assessment validation process will comprise of:

A systematic process of the RTO’s assessment practices and judgements that is undertaken by one (1) or more persons who are not directly involved in the instance of delivery and assessment of the training product being validated, and who collectively have:

a) vocational competencies and current industry skills relevant to the assessment being validated;
b) current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning; and
c) the training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set referred to in Item 1 or 3 of Schedule 1 (Standards for registered Training Organisations 2015). Industry experts will be involved in validation to ensure there is the combination of expertise set out in (a) to (c) above.

  • vocational competencies and current industry skills relevant to the assessment being validated;
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning; and
  • the training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set referred to in Item 1 or 3 of Schedule 1 (Standards for registered Training Organisations 2015). Industry experts will be involved in validation to ensure there is the combination of expertise set out in (a) to (c) above.
  • A review of the Assessment guidelines from the Training Package; a review of the assessment resources; a review of feedback forms from stakeholders; and any other relevant documentation;
  • Validation Processes • A review of at least 20% of all products during the preceding 12 months, and examined and commented on for:
    • vocational competencies and current industry skills relevant to the assessment being validated;
    • current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning; and
    • the training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set referred to in Item 1 or 3 of Schedule 1 (Standards for registered Training Organisations 2015). Industry experts will be involved in validation to ensure there is the combination of expertise set out in (a) to (c) above.
  • A review of the Assessment guidelines from the Training Package, a review of the assessment resources, a review of feedback forms from stakeholders and any other relevant documentation.
  • A review of at least 20% of all products during the preceding 12 months, and examined and commented on for:
    • Adhering to the principles of assessment and rules of evidence.
    • Alignment to the training package;
    • Effectiveness of the process.
    • A review of the assessment tasks, comparing them against the requirements of the Training Package, ensuring that any mapping document is accurate and maintained;
    • Ensuring that all tasks are representative of real or simulated workplace requirements and are assessed to a standard as required by the Training Package;
    • As part of the moderation process, samples of past assessment situations and past RPL decisions will be reviewed to confirm that the accepted industry standard has been achieved; and
    • All changes to resources will be recorded in the minutes of management meetings and new resources will be drafted and circulated to all relevant staff. The revised resources will be subject to the Version Control policy.

The Assessment Validation Process will Comprise of:

A systematic process of the RTO’s assessment practices and judgements that is undertaken by one (1) or more persons who are not directly involved in the particular instance of delivery and assessment of the training product being validated, and who collectively have:

d) vocational competencies and current industry skills relevant to the assessment being validated;
e) current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning; and
f) the training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set referred to in Item 1 or 3 of Schedule 1 (Standards for registered Training Organisations 2015). Industry experts will be involved in validation to ensure there is the combination of expertise set out in (a) to (c) above

  • vocational competencies and current industry skills relevant to the assessment being validated;
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning; and
  • the training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set referred to in Item 1 or 3 of Schedule 1 (Standards for registered Training Organisations 2015). Industry experts will be involved in validation to ensure there is the combination of expertise set out in (a) to (c) above.
  • A review of the Assessment guidelines from the Training Package; a review of the assessment resources; a review of feedback forms from stakeholders; and any other relevant documentation;

External assessment moderation meetings are to be held on the development of new assessment resources to confirm that the resources meet the requirements of the Training Package and prior to the internal assessment process to determine that they are ready to be released for use or during December as per the Validation Schedule or as required by specific feedback causing a special moderation such as negative feedback.

External assessment moderation meetings are to be held on the development of new assessment resources to confirm that the resources meet the requirements of the Training Package and prior to the internal assessment process to determine that they are ready to be released for use or during December as per the Validation Schedule or as required by specific feedback causing a special moderation such as negative feedback.;

Issues that arise with any assessment resources will be tabled at the next management meeting; this must be before any application, otherwise an extra ordinary meeting will be convened to raise and address the issues of concern with the resources. Feedback will be gathered from participants at the completion each assessment.

Australian Academy of Trade & Technology will choose validators who are independent of delivery and assessment of the training product being validated and the assessment judgements being considered to maintain professional distance and integrity.
People involved in validation must have:

  • appropriate vocational competencies
  • current industry skills and knowledge
  • an appropriate training and assessment qualification or assessor skill set, and
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational teaching and learning.

Validation may be undertaken through a ‘team’ approach where, collectively, team members hold the required qualifications, skills and knowledge. Trainers and assessors can be involved in validation activities, if they are not directly involved in deciding the validation outcome for their assessment decisions.
