Skills must be demonstrated in a workplace that provides services or support to children and families.
Where there is documented evidence that the service does not permit performance of one or more of the above skills by individuals who are not staff members, those skills may be demonstrated in a simulated environment.
Simulated assessment environments must simulate the real-life working environment where the skills and knowledge within this unit would be utilised, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.
Assessment must ensure access to:
- information about children and family from multiple sources
- service standards, policies and procedures for collaborative partnerships with families and community
- children and families experiencing complex challenges.
Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations’ requirements for assessors.
