Education Support Draft 2 Validation

Project Summary

The Education Support Draft 2 Qualifications and Units of Competency are now available for public consultation. These Training Package Products have been updated based on feedback received during the Draft 1 consultation period from November 2017-March 2018, as well as throughout the current consultation period for the Draft 2 Early Childhood Education and Care and School Age Care material.

The Draft 2 Education Support qualifications and units of competency have been complex due to a number of  factors including 

  • Clarification of the job roles
  • The separation of the early childhood (ECE) units from the existing qualifications
  • Concerns expressed in relation to the structure and content of the Draft 1 Education Support (EDS) qualifications, and validated with data provided by a key stakeholder 

We encourage those people who are active in the Education Support sector to review the Draft 2 Material and provide comment and feedback to guide the final draft.

"Anna, almost all schools do not allow you to film or take images of children so I don't see how you can possibly assess your students in the many and various activities required by the units in this course. Students, schools, teachers all expect at least one site visit as a minimum and they are invaluable for so many reasons. You can't carry out authentic and valid assessments via case studies or simulations. The RTO's business model isn't the number one priority - we should develop courses in the best interests of students and the industry - who all expect placement visits. Also, despite the issue of not meeting the unit requirements adequately, what happens if there are issues and you need a trainer to visit the school - this happens all too often and you need boots on the ground. Even the TAFE providers in regional areas visit every student at some point."

"Totally agree. Why do assessors need to physically attend the classroom to observe students? There are many technological methods that can be used instead. We need to consider rural students as well as the cost of an assessor visiting students multiple times. This needs to considered or the cost of courses will be prohibitive."
