Workplace Assessment


Applicants must provide a 'Workplace Assessment Report' for each of the nine units (see criteria & evidence for more details), and this must be accompanied by a 'Workplace Assessment - Senior Manager Approval' report.

Workplace Assessment Report Forms

Workplace Assessment Report forms need to be completed by the applicant's line manager / supervisor. Each report must have been completed within the last 12 months prior to the application - though they may take into account evidence collected before that time.

Please note - the person completing the form does NOT need to provide a portfolio of evidence in support of their assessment. However, they must be familiar with the applicant's work and be in a position to make an objective judgement about their competence in relation to the unit/s concerned. They must also outline the type of evidence on which their judgement is based (ie how they have assessed the applicant's competence).
