Workplace based training and placement based training
If you currently work in, or are about to commence work in a registered children's services centre, we are happy to provide you training that makes the most of your situation. If you are just starting out or wanting to further develop your career and you have no work place available to you, One World for Children are happy to help you find an appropriate service to participate in. This is called your 'placement service'.
Prior to your commencement of training you will meet one of our friendly and experienced Trainer Assessors and they will have a discussion with you to find out what you already know. This discussion may highlight the opportunity for you to gain credits and/or exemptions toward your course completion through recognition of prior learning (RPL).
Whether in a workplace or placement, your individual Trainer Assessor will provide you with learning materials to read and reflect on, they will be contactable to support you as you learn and implement your new skills and knowledge, and they will assess your competence within your work or placement environment. This mode of learning is called self-directed learning and it ensures you have control over when and how you learn.
Once you start training you will be supported to complete your assessments in your personalised online login portal. Your Trainer Assessor is able to access your work directly from this portal ensuring you receive feedback quickly and there is no concern about loss of any of your work.
Your Trainer Assessor looks for milestones that indicate you are ready for a workplace or placement visit, and once these milestones are reached they will come out and assess your skills on the job. This is a fantastic time to share your ideas and thoughts with the Trainer Assessor and for them to give you valuable feedback.
