Skills must be demonstrated in the workplace or in a simulated environment that reflects workplace conditions.
In addition, simulations and scenarios must be used where the full range of contexts and situations cannot be provided in the workplace or may occur only rarely. These are situations relating to emergency or unplanned procedures where assessment in these circumstances would be unsafe or is impractical.
Simulated assessment environments must simulate the real-life working environment where these skills and knowledge would be performed, with all the relevant equipment and resources of that working environment.
Skills related to reflection may be demonstrated outside of the workplace.
Interactions with students must be supervised by a teacher or other educational professional.
Assessment must ensure access to:
- organisational policies and procedures
- students in an educational organisation
- colleagues for guidance and collaboration.
Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations requirements for assessors.
