One of the great achievements of completing and holding a Nationally Recognised Qualification is your ability to complete a series of assessments written against a set of National Standards that confirm your knowledge and skills in that area.

A Nationally Recognised Qualification has a set of criteria that our CLET staff are required to follow when designing your assessments, these include:

  • Performance Criteria including foundation skills
  • Performance Evidence
  • Knowledge Evidence
  • Assessment Conditions

When you study with CLET, you are provided with access to these criteria inside each unit of your course, if you wish to view them.

For the assessments in each unit, you are provided with a clear set of instructions and benchmarks for you to follow.

We also use the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) as a tool to assists us to assess your performance in the five core skills of learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy attached to each unit inside a course.

Trainers and Assessors

As part of these Standards, CLET's courses are delivered by trainers and assessors who either hold the units they are assigned or have the vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed, plus

  • current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided, and
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment.

In addition, CLET training and assessment is only conducted by our staff that hold a one or more of the following:

  • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
  • Diploma of Vocational Education and Training
  • Bachelor of Adult and Vocational Education

Plus, CLET trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of:

  • knowledge and practice of vocational training, and
  • learning and assessment, including competency-based training and assessment

Assessment Overview

CLET courses are assessed using a diverse range of assessment strategies to ensure we cover the assessment conditions for each unit of study and provide our students with interesting and flexible assessment experiences.

All assessments are completed in your own time and submitted online, with no assessment due dates, reducing the uncomfortable pressure and unnecessary stress that traditional assessment testing is so famous for.

Marking feedback is provided online, usually within 3 weeks of submission.

Many assessments will include researching, reading and analysing information on your computer, laptop or tablet (Internet required). However, each unit of study provides assessment instructions and benchmarks you can easily follow to successfully complete each assessment task and CLET training staff are just the click of a button away if you have a question.

Assessment Methods

A selection of the following assessment methods are used by the CLET assessment designers when they are building each units assessment structure. Each assessment task will provide clear assessment instructions of what is required. The tasks you will most likely be asked to complete may include some or all of the following:
