Quality RTO Training Materials in Australia

What To Look For In Quality RTO Training Material? Leave a comment

When it comes to RTO (Registered Training Organisation) training resources, quality is essential. You want to ensure that you have the necessary materials and tools to provide your students with a comprehensive and effective learning experience. Look for RTO training resources that are up-to-date, relevant, and aligned with industry standards. The resources should be engaging and interactive, allowing students to learn at their own pace and in their preferred style. Additionally, make sure that the training resources are accessible and user-friendly for both students and trainers. Investing in quality RTO training resources can help your students achieve their learning goals and prepare them for success in their chosen careers.

How To Get The Most Out Of RTO Training Resources?

By following these simple yet effective guidelines, RTOs can confidently choose the best materials for their organisation and ensure to get the most out of it

  1. Ensure You Get a VALID SAMPLE

    It is essential to ensure you are getting a valid sample when selecting resources for training. Many-times providers have a single unit on their websites that they claim represents all of their offerings. The problem with the sample given could be “cherry-picked” and not reflective of the overall quality or function of the product. To guarantee you are receiving the correct resources, requesting a sample that covers a complete Unit of Competence and having an independent professional analyse it against unit requirements to validate it meets regulatory standards for competency purposes and passes audit specifications is imperative.
    Another factor to consider when ensuring you get a valid sample is asking questions about where these resources were created from, as there could be legal implications from using materials developed by another provider in breach of copyright laws. Taking time for due-diligence, researching the provider, verifying qualifications or referencing achievements will help determine educational content’s authenticity, integrity and useability before investing additional time or money in developing materials.

  1. Get Your Assessment Tool Sample Validated

    Validation of your assessment tools is essential to ensuring that your RTO meets the required standards and complies with government regulations. Valuing a sample unit before investing in expensive resources is far more cost-effective, as rectifying and redeveloping the entire suite can be very costly after an audit. Finding a skilled validator knowledgeable about the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) requirements is essential for a successful validation, as it will ensure that assessment tasks are up-to-date, relevant and comply with regulatory requirements.
    By validating your assessment tool before you finalise your purchase, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it meets quality assurance standards and doesn’t pose a risk of non-compliance during an audit. An accurate validation can also improve efficiency by helping educators identify redundant material or aspects that could be improved during the development process, potentially leading to better learner outcomes.
    An adequately validated assessment tool can ultimately save RTOs from potential sanctions or deregistration due to poor audit performance.

  1. Do Your Assessment Tools Come With Mapping Documents?

    Assessment tools come with mapping documents to ensure compliance with industry and regulatory requirements and provide learners a clear path for success. At Compliant Learning Resources, we understand the importance of having clear documentation when it comes to mapping assessments. That’s why our assessment tools come with comprehensive and easy to follow mapping documents that go above the standards set out by accreditation bodies. Assessors Guides are provided which deliver task level mapping so you won’t have to spend hours trying to find where the unit requirement has been met. The mapping matrix can also be accessed if you require a macro view of tasks, assessments and competencies.
    By clearly outlining everything at both the task and overview levels your organisation will be able to prove competence in whatever subject area is being assessed. With Compliant Learning Resources you can trust that all assessment tools are up-to-date and delivered with compliance in mind across all levels of learning, competency frameworks and certificates of completion. It doesn’t matter whether you’re assessing employees, students or new recruits – all participants can trust that their assessments will easily meet industry standards once they take them through your assessment system.

  1. Does The Learning Resource have a Simulated Work Environment?

    Simulated Work Environments are an invaluable resource for any learning institution as they simulate a real workplace, allowing learners to get a taste of what is required in their future field. Simulated websites or work environments give learners access to workplace documents, communication, policies and procedures, client/stakeholder records etc.
    The simulated work environment replicates the essential documents without having to rely on a physical work placement. This makes it easier for many more students to succeed in the course and provides a pathway for those who may not otherwise get the opportunity.
    Moreover, these “simulated websites” resources can help prepare your learners for the working world with vital skills that may have been overlooked and provide experience with essential tools and techniques that become imperative knowledge in different industries.
    Simulated Work Environments cost little to nothing extra compared to traditional training methods and offer enhanced learning experiences, making them an excellent tool for improving outcomes and creating realistic simulations.

  1. Is there enough Learning Content?

    When it comes to learner resources for training materials, the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ certainly applies. Often, we see learner guides with what appears to be copied/pasted content from the internet or a lack of any educational material at all. This can confuse learners as learning hasn’t been properly facilitated.
    Before you purchase any learning resources, make sure you check the amount of content included in its package. Consider the learner guide’s number of pages and ensure it contains the advertised pages. Be weary if large white spaces have been used to “pad out” what is actually a small amount of content – this practice is commonly used by some developers in order to give a deceptive impression of an extensive resource pack. Ensure there is ample material for learners for their full understanding and comprehension before making a purchase.

Choosing the Right Licence?

Choosing the right license for your training program is an important decision. You can choose from two main license types: a pay per student type and an unlimited type. In order to make the best decision here, it is important that you determine how many students you will be training as this will determine which type of license will be more cost-effective in the long run.
Conducting a break-even analysis by looking at your investment over a three-year period would be beneficial. This way you can understand the real cost associated with either option and ultimately work out if you are better off with an unlimited student-use licence or a pay-per-student license.
The pay-per-student license may be the most affordable option for small to medium size companies who offer limited courses and only train up to 10 students but larger organisations with multiple users will find better value in an unlimited licence. Considering factors such as course length and number of students before deciding on one type or another will help ensure you get maximum value for your money.

Achieving Success With VET Resources

By following these principles and continually refining your approach based on feedback and results, you can ensure that your RTO learning materials are effective, engaging, and successful in helping learners achieve their goals.
