Material and Assessments

How will I be assessed?
Academy Green has built its assessments to be user friendly, fully compliant and not repetitive. We have experienced trainer that have many industry experiences. Our assessments are quality not quantity as we believe if you can demonstrate it, have

There are no formal exams that you need to sit.

Materials

Academy Green has the relevant resources to equip students with the following: -
• Student Handbook
• Learner guides including reference material and learning activities
• Learning and assessment material and tools hard and soft copy
• Text book referencing
• Any other resources stipulated in each unit of competency and / or the Training Package

Assessment
At Academy Green an assessment is conducted using a combination of;
• Written Knowledge Assessment: The learner is required to provide a written response to a range of questions relating to required knowledge of the units of competency. These would generally be short answer response activities and may include other questioning methods including multiple-choice.
• Research Tasks: The learner is required to undertake research within their own workplace and the available reference material and provide a written response to each question. These assessment activities are usually short to medium answer response activities. The responses provided by the learner will largely be specific to their workplace.
• Case Study Response: The learner is required to provide a written response to a situation presented in a case study scenario. This will usually require the learner to consider carefully the situation presented, undertake some research to inform their response and then to propose their recommended actions.
• Workplace Log book: The learner is required to record details of their work activity completed during the work placement. These details are recorded against specified tasks which are predesigned for the learner to complete. This forms an important part of the assessment evidence as it often includes critical evidence that is otherwise difficult for the assessor to observe.
• Supervisor Feedback: The assessor will periodically engage with workplace supervisors to seek their feedback about the learner’s performance. This is undertaken as an interview with a duration of approximately 15 to 20 minutes. This interview can be undertaken over the phone or face to face. Feedback from a supervisor is recorded into the assessment record.
• Workplace Observation: The learner will be observed performing specific tasks in their day-to-day work activities. The assessor will attend the workplace and observe the learner performing tasks relevant to the units of competency being assessed. The learner will be briefed on these observation activities in events and is required to make arrangements to undertake these activities when the assessor is in attendance at the workplace.

Re-assessment
Learners who are assessed as not yet competent are to be provided with detailed verbal and written feedback to assist them to identify the gaps in their knowledge and skills to be addressed through further training. These learners are to be provided with additional training and learning support to target their specific gaps in knowledge and/or skills and prepare them for additional assessment.

It is the policy of Academy Green to provide three opportunities for additional training and re-assessment at no additional cost to the learner or employer. Learners who require additional training and re-assessment after they have exhausted their three opportunities will be required to pay a fee for additional training and re-assessment. Please refer to the current fee schedule to identify the re-assessment fee.

Learner’s requiring additional learning support are to be brought to the attention of Academy Green management, so the progress of the learner can be monitored closely, and additional support services can be applied well before it becomes necessary to impose an additional fee for re-assessment. Where learners repeatedly do not demonstrate competence following significant learning and assessment support, a learner’s enrolment can be determined through mutual agreement.
