  • I am using COP, learning community, network essentially as the same concept. General recognition is that for a network or COP to work effectively that it needs someone to steward it. Which is my role, my experience across both LL and RTO’s provides a conduit for your discussions and questions.
  • A technology steward:Understands the communityHas technology awarenessHelp communities with decisions about tools and adopting the technology Assists in integration into practice
  • A learning network is informal consists of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from
  • A personal learning network is an informal learning network that consists of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from in a personal learning environment. In a PLN, a person makes a connection with another person with the specific intent that some type of learning will occur because of that connection.
  • Lines of communication.
  • Family, friends, groups, clubs the people you work with.
  • What does your learning network look like now. You may not be using online tools to connect, but you already have networks where you interact with others in an informal way to learn. How do you share knowledge informally and formally.

    30. 30. Teacher Qualifications The National Skills and Standards Council has determined that from 1 July 2013: • A. TRAINERS MUST: • (i) hold the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment from the TAE10 Training and Assessment Training Package as a minimum qualification or be able to demonstrate equivalence of competencies; • and • (ii) be able to demonstrate vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed; and • (iii) be able to demonstrate how they are continuing to develop their VET knowledge and skills as well as • maintaining their industry currency and trainer/ assessor competence.
    31. 31. Vocational and VET competence of teachers Vocational Competence VET Competence Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, usually combined with a relevant industry qualification. A person who has vocational competency will be familiar with the content of the vocation and will have relevant current experience in the industry. Vocational competency must be considered on an industry-by- industry basis and with reference to the guidance provided in the Assessment Guidelines of the relevant Training Package. Standard 1 1.4 Training and assessment is delivered by trainers and assessors who: (d) continue to develop their Vocational Education and Training (VET) knowledge and skills as well as their industry currency and trainer/assessor competence
    32. 32. Evidence of monitoring It is not sufficient to have a policy in place related to the standards without evidence to show that you do what you say you do. Eg. • How do you show that you monitor current legislation? • How do you show you are keeping up to date with changes in training packages? Continuous improvement
