Invitation to participate in pilot online program
Ten CFA members are invited to participate in a pilot digital (online) learning program being offered by RMIT University.
RMIT is partnering with an e-learning company to develop a high quality learning model for their VET (vocational education and training) training. They are developing a program that will be offered as a "mobile first" blended model, delivered fully online over a period of four to six weeks. Ten CFA members are invited by RMIT to participate in the pilot program and provide feedback on the online learning model and program.
The pilot program aligns to the TAESS00007 Enterprise Trainer - Presenting Skills Set. The skills set is made up of two units of competency: BSBCMM401A Make a presentation and TAEDEL301A Provide work skill instruction. The delivery of this skills set is a pilot project, which aims to test the new delivery model to inform future directions for RMIT. Members who successfully complete the requirements will be issued, by RMIT, with the Enterprise Trainer - Presenting Skills Set.
What will I be committing to?
The pilot will run from mid-October to mid-November 2016. All members who apply to be part of the pilot program will need to commit to:
- participation in a briefing session with RMIT. It will be held the week beginning 26th September at RMIT's campus in Carlton. The briefing session can be conducted via Google Hangouts or Skype for participants who can't attend face-to-face;
- being available mid-October to mid-November to complete the online learning program;
- providing feedback about the program to RMIT;
- delivering three training sessions as part of the learning process; and
- being supported by a mentor. The mentor may be their workplace training supervisor or another person who has the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The mentor will also be required to participate in the briefing session and it is expected their committment will be four to six hours over the duration of the program.
I'm interested. How do I get involved?
To apply, download the pilot program invitation and application form. The form also includes a page for your mentor to complete. This must be completed for applications to be considered.
Applications will be considered from all members, with a cohort of 10 being put forward to RMIT to reflect diversity of gender, age, location, experience and brigade.
All successful applicants will be notified via email by Friday 23rd September.
