Is there any pre-course work?

It is recommended that prior to the course, participants give thought to a topic for a 20 minute skills-based training session that they will be required to deliver to a group of other participants on the final day of the course. Participants should also make arrangements to ensure the necessary resources are available to deliver their session to approximately 6 people.

Note: Further details about requirements of the training session will be provided to participants at the start of the course or can be obtained by contacting Training Services Australia before the start of the course.

What about homework and assessment requirements?

Participants may find it necessary to complete some work at home after each day of the course, in preparation for the following day.
This could include finalising preparations for a twenty minute skills-based training session to be delivered on the final day of the course.

Assessment requirements include:

  • Assessment of on-course training session delivery
  • Assessment of training documentation completed on the course (training records, trainer self-evaluation form, etc)
  • Completion of Introduction to Training Knowledge Questionnaire. This tests learners’ underpinning knowledge of training concepts. The questionnaire may be completed as an ‘open-book’ assessment, during or after the course.
  • Post-course assignment, including organising and conducting two training sessions in the workplace. These sessions must focus on training through instruction of work-skills, be on different topics and; be delivered to different individuals/groups. Trainees will also be required to obtain feedback from their learners; self-evaluate their own performance and; answer a series of questions about the processes they used to conduct their training sessions.

Note that learners will be required to arrange for a third party to observe them delivering these sessions (or submit a video of their sessions to TSA).
