What Is The Session About?

Assessment of workplace skills is a growing need as it can be distinct from Training or Qualifications related assessment practices. This course looks at the inherent challenges surrounding the viability of workplace competency, from the perspective of the value to the individual as well as the value to the organisation of having such a dashboard, which can showcase the proficiency level of staff skills as well as a quick gauge of the organisation's strengths and gaps.

To ensure alignment and context, the course begins with a Case (industry sector learning journey). The facilitator will then deploy instructional methods of knowledge dispensation, small group discussion and problem-solving to walk the participants through the notion of skills credentialing, the how-to and anticipated challenges of micro skills credentialing implementation at the workplace.

What Does The Session Cover?

By the end of the workshop, learners will be able to:

Use of Skills Credentialing practices in industry and worker's development
Identify domains / workplace skills segments for authentic workplace skills assessment
Artificulate the components to construct a micro skills assessment system at the workplace
Identify challenges in the implementation of a micro skills assessment system

Who Is It Suitable For?

Adult Educators, HR practitioners, thought leaders in organisations and individuals who wish to consider implementing a credentialing practice in their organisation or franchisees.
