Summative Assessment (Post-course Project)

To complete this qualification it is anticipated that you will apply the knowledge and skills obtained during the face-to-face delivery into your workplace, you will be required to:

  • Design and deliver a 2 hour training session to a group of learners based on a unit of competency contextualised for their own workplace.
  • Submit all relevant documentation and resources as part of their project, including session plans, learning activities, handouts and PowerPoint presentations.
  • Perform an on-the-job coaching session to facilitate work based learning
  • Participants will be expected to show how they might modify their training and assessment material to suit learner groups with LLN considerations.
  • Design summative assessments using their chosen workplace unit of competency, which will be reviewed and evaluated and modifications made.
  • Complete underpinning questions and answers.

Participants will be given 12 weeks to complete and submit the post-course project.

A range of templates and examples will be provided in the Project electronic copy. All project documentation is expected to be submitted electronically.

Participants will be provided with written feedback for their post-course projects. Where deemed not yet competent, an assessor will give detailed feedback of the aditional requirements and another opportunity will be given to resubmit. The assessor may organise a coaching session either telephonically or face-to-face to discuss requirements or concerns. We are here to help and will be with you every step of the way.

Your Course Support

As a Carsonite, you will have our support to give you every opportunity to achieve your learning objectives. Carson will endeavour to support participants in their post course project and setup telephonic or face-to-face coaching sessions. Participants have access to the optional 2 day Learner Support Workshop which can be accessed during any course allowing for flexible learning. We encourage post course correspondence where questions, queries and concerns are answered promptly by our trainer and assessor. If there are any LLN considerations or specific requirements of participants, Carson will ensure that support strategies are in place to guarantee access, equity and confidentiality.

Where a participant does not (or is unable) to complete any aspect of the course requirements, Carson will consult with the individual to determine provisions for completion (i.e. re-attendance, re-assessment, RPL, or other options customised to suit the individual and within our ability to do so). Every participant has the right to an appeal, as outlined in our Learner Information Handbook.
