Skills to design a Training and Assessment Strategy

 
 
Before we launch into developing training and assessment strategies, let’s first look at the type of personal attributes or behavioural competencies a training and assessment strategy designer needs to have. (TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment covers this in more detail)

Holding the TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment qualification is one thing – being competent of design training and assessment strategies is another – and is covered extensively in TAA50104 Diploma of Training and Assessment. To be competent in designing training and assessment strategies, you must be able to perform certain tasks such as determining the parameters of the training and assessment strategy in consultation with key stakeholders. This requires having good communication skills to gather information from a wide range of groups such as enterprises, educational bodies, trade unions and technical experts. To gather information effectively, you need to demonstrate skills such as interpersonal, communication and listening skills. These skills influence the way you perform the tasks involved in designing and developing training and assessment strategies.

For example, in TAA40104 Certificate IV Training and Assessment you’ll learn that when gathering information about the purpose of the training and assessment strategy from a client, you need good communication skills and listening skills. Having good problem-solving skills is also important when designing training and assessment strategies. For example, when devising the content and structure of a strategy, you need to work within operating constraints. This means you need to provide a strategy solution that fits within budget or timeline restrictions.

You may need to negotiate with others to use existing resources or find alternative solutions to design a strategy that works within the constraints of the project. You need to be flexible in your approach, as the training and assessment strategy solutions you design may not be ideal when presented to the client. Your strategy will need to be discussed and modified with input from a team, committee or other key stakeholders. You need to have the personal skills of listening and responding to feedback received from others about your work. Responding to this feedback is a key skill required by a training and assessment strategy designer.
