The assessment for CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care) is to be conducted using a clustered model of assessment using assessor observation, the production of workplace products, written knowledge assessments and projects. This allows the assessment of multiple skills and knowledge integrated into real workplace tasks and performances where possible. Clustered assessment recognises the assessment of skills and knowledge in the sequence as they would normally be performed in the workplace and is efficient.
Integrity College considers assessment conducted in a real workplace of paramount importance to meeting industry needs and expectations. The workplace provides the context for students to respond to and research information relevant to their own situation and enterprise. The assessment model applied in this course has a focus of workplace observation performing actual early childhood learning tasks. Visits to the student’s workplace to undertake observation assessment will occur once per fortnight.
Students are required to respond to assessment activities, which are issued at the beginning of each unit cluster. These assessment activities are required to be completed or conducted at scheduled times during the program. The approach taken with scheduling assessment deliverables is to allocate realistic timeframes for assessment tasks recognising that the student should be capable of coordinating their workload and managing a range of workplace tasks at the same time.
All activities and projects are assessed and then handed back to the student with feedback. This allows the student to monitor
their progress before progressing onto new activities so they may apply lessons learned.Complete Learning and Assessment Schedule to be finalised.
The planned duration of training for this course is 1080 hours. This is achieved by a combination of self-paced study, scheduled classroom learning sessions, responding to assessment tasks, work placement and practical assessment in the workplace. The rationale for this time allocation is:
This time is programmed in the planned learning and assessment tasks as outlined in this strategy over 51 weeks or 12 months. The table below shows the distribution of time for each unit of competency. The allocation recognises that some units have a heavier learning requirement than other units and these have therefore been scheduled to occur over a longer duration to allow for additional learning sessions, a longer allocation of time for self-paced study and additional workplace visits.
