This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to participate in the validation of assessment tools, practices and judgements, including in:

  • pre-assessment validation of assessment tools before they are first used with candidates, and post-assessment validation of the tools after having been used to assess candidates
  • post-assessment validation of practices and judgements.

The unit applies to vocational education and training (VET) trainers and assessors with relevant industry experience to participate in validation activities according to organisational policies and procedures. Validation activities encompass the quality review of the assessment tools, practices and judgements. Participants in the validation do not lead the validation process. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. All assignments are completed online making it easy and portable to keep track of where you are up to.

  • Students will be paying this course in two payments, one with an initial fee of $200 on enrolment, with a marking fee of $75 to be paid when the assessor has finished marking your unit.
  • This unit must be completed within 3 months. Extensions (1 month - $50, 3 month - $150, 6 month - $350) can be purchased through the office upon request.
  • All students have 90 days to submit the required documentation on enrolment or WEA Sydney reserves the right to cancel their enrolment.
