About Course

  • How will the participants’ competence be assessed?
  • What resources and facilities will be available?
  • What is the timeframe in which the program will be delivered/completed?
  • What is the language, literacy and numeracy level of the target audience: will the training program need to take LLN needs into consideration?

Answers to these questions, among others, will give you the basis for the most appropriate training program. How successful the program is, or whether it has achieved its intended outcome or not, will depend on how you design and develop its structure.

What Will You Learn?

  • How to plan a detailed vocational education program
  • How to create a plan that meets industry benchmarks and RTO requirements
  • Developing session plans to support the delivery of the training program

Course Content

Planning Vocational Training
The first two questions asked in the introduction to this chapter—Why is the training program necessary? Who is it for?—define the parameters of the program. They provide guidance on the type and range of topics to be covered, and on how these should be covered and assessed. Note that in this chapter we will be referring to areas of formal, nationally recognised training packages. The next topic covers these areas in detail. However, it is necessary to mention them briefly here, as they are inextricably linked with defining the parameters of a training program.

Designing a plan for vocational training
In Australia, we are able to offer nationally recognised training (NRT). We can do this because a Vocational Education and Training system has been developed and implemented that is comprised of standards and performance criteria that apply across the board to all registered training organisations and qualification courses around Australia. These standards and performance criteria have been researched, analysed and validated not only by government, but also by the relevant industry partners. This means that VET offers up-to-date, real-world training opportunities by way of training packages and accredited courses, which can be found on the National Register for Vocational Education and Training in Australia: https://training.gov.au.

Developing session plans for vocational training
Once you have chosen the program content, you will need to put it into a logical sequence. For example, there is no point in teaching participants about how to deal with conflict before you have covered effective communication skills. You will also need to conduct research on where you can find accurate and up-to-date information on these topics that you could use in addition to, and in support of, the formal training package requirements and organisational policies and procedures.
