Overview Facilitated Worksop delivery

To achieve the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, you will be required to successfully complete 10 units of competency, that are broken into the following three (3) learning clusters: Learning Design, Train the Trainer and Workplace Assessor.
The formal training component involves 10 days of training, where students will participate in learning activities and complete practical tasks. These include discussions, poster activities, short presentations, response to case studies, simulations, resource development, peer review and self-evaluation.

The Pivot Institute provides powerful and interactive workshops, which focus on experiential learning for participants and will use units of competency which are relevant to each group of participants and the requirements of the workplace.
Experienced Pivot trainers use all the principles of adult learning to deliver interesting and innovative training leaving participants motivated and enthused to use the new tools and techniques in their working environment.
The focus of the facilitated workshops is experiential learning and allowing participants to learn thorough doing.

The in-class contact time for each cluster is:

  • Learning Design ( 5 days)
  • Train the Trainer (5 days)
  • Workplace Assessor (5 days)

During the workshop participants will work individually and in groups to brainstorm and create a series of training and assessment tasks, which when completed, would evidence the requirements of the units of competency. This will be followed by post-course work with the support from a facilitator.
