Vocational Education and Training Student Assessment Policy The St Mary Star of the Sea College Vocational Educational Assessment Policy incorporates and recognises all aspects of the College’s HSC Assessment policy. The Vocational Education courses within the Curriculum framework are assessed under the guidelines of the college’s policy of HSC assessment in regards to publishing timing of tasks, keeping records of tasks, confidentiality of results and recognising your right of appeal. The Nature of Vocational Education and Training Assessment Tasks In Vocational Education competency based courses, students performance is judged against a prescribed standard – not against the performance of other students. You are judged either competent or not yet competent. Competency based assessment incorporated all aspects of skill performance, including problem solving and capacity to apply skills and knowledge in both familiar and new situations. Assessment of competence involved the assessment of skills and knowledge combined. AQF Certificate To achieve an AQF Certificate or Statement of Attainment, you must be assessed as competent according to the requirements set out in the national training package. Assessment Guidelines The role of vocational education assessment guidelines is to provide the principles and guidance to ensure that the assessment is fair, valid, consistent and to industry standard. Unit Assessment Assessment may be conducted for individual units of competency or for groups of units of competency. Students assessed as competent in one or more individual units will be eligible for a Statement of Attainment showing partial completion of the relevant certificate.

Workplacement Workplacement is an excellent opportunity to participate effectively within industry in order to build upon knowledge and skills learned at the College. Students thoroughly enjoy their time at workplacement, with many often being offered part-time work, apprenticeships or traineeships. This is a mandatory requirement for Year 11 and/or Year 12 students undertaking Industry Specific Curriculum Frameworks as part of the Higher School Certificate. It is also a component of any course recognised by the Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Training Board. (VETAB). Workplacement involves negotiation between the school and employer about the course learning outcomes to be achieved on the job. Workplacement also involves competency based assessment of industry recognised skills and knowledge which is reported through a Student Competency Board. Workplacement Requirements  240 hour course – a minimum of 70 hours Students who do not complete workplacement will not be eligible for a HSC Award in that subject. Those students may be issued with an N determination by the Principal. What are the recommended assessment methods in Vet courses? The recommended assessment methods encompass a wide range of techniques. These techniques include the use of:       

Direct observation of performance Simulation of workplace activities Oral questioning Practical exercises Projects/assignments Work portfolios Class Tests

How is VET assessment recorded?  Successful demonstration of competency is recorded by your teacher.  Your teacher will keep a copy of this at the College until you complete your course.  Records of assessment remain confidential.

Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) RPL is the practise of recognising the knowledge and skills that students bring to any learning situation. All students undertaking a VET course may apply for RPL. The process for application is as follows; 1. All students enrolled in VET subjects are provided with the learning outcomes of the course so they can determine if they have any prior learning. 2. If you wish to apply for RPL you will need to complete an application form 3. The outcome of the request for RPL will be based on:   

Direct or first hand evidence (eg written test) Indirect or second hand evidence (eg references, positions held) Formal documentation of skills or knowledge (eg qualification certificates)  
