In response to feedback from contracted training providers, the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) has funded VDC to provide 10 Assessment workshops during April and May to support Skills First contracted training providers.

The new program being held at the VET Development Centre, Level 8, 379 Collins Street, Melbourne focuses on maintaining quality assessment practices that are consistent with the obligations of TAFE and Registered Training Organisations.

  • Assessment Essentials
