Training and Assessment

Training and Assessment

This policy applies to Nationally Recognised Training delivered by GlobalNet. Consultancy and Non Nationally Recognised Training services are outside the scope of this policy.

Training Materials

GlobalNet will source training materials from a variety of sources, including

  • Developing its own and providing this to its trainers
  • Requesting that trainers develop materials for GlobalNet
  • Purchasing commercially developed materials and then customising and / or contextualizing them for use in courses
  • Using trainer developed materials for units
  • Any other source not listed about that meets our training requirements

Assessment Documents

GlobalNet will develop its own assessment materials and will validate these against the applicable training packages for training courses. In some cases, GlobalNet pay purchase assessment tools and these will be contextualized and validated.

Types of Assessment tools

GlobalNet Academy developed assessment tools will be used to report assessment and have been designed to be multipurpose where appropriate.

Trainer responsibilities

Trainers are responsible to ensure that they are well prepared for all classes and that they understand the material being presented.

Trainer competencies and professional development

All GlobalNet Acacdemy trainers are required to be professional and knowledgeable about their subjects and industry areas. GlobalNet requires them to have

  1. the vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed
  2. current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided
  3. current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment

We also require that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of the knowledge and practice of vocational training, learning and assessment including competency-based training and assessment.

Marking units

Assessors will be responsible for their own units unless there is a responsible assessor for a unit (as explained above). Assessors are to:

  • Mark units as soon as reasonably practicable
  • Ensure that the paperwork for the unit is complete and mark the unit complete in the appropriate register
  • Notify (if they haven’t already) the student that the unit is complete

Only the assessor assigned to the unit or the “responsible assessor” are permitted to mark units.  Assessors or responsible assessors who believe that they will not be able to mark their units within a reasonable time frame need to discuss this with the course coordinator as soon as they become aware of this so that an alternative assessor can be found to mark the unit(s).

Course Coordinators will not automatically mark units that are the responsibility of other assessors without prior discussion with the unit assessor or responsible assessor.
