                      HOW TO USE THIS RPL ASSESSOR KIT

This RPL Assessor Kit is divided into sections to allow you to easily access only those sections you
require at any given time. These sections are:


SECTION A – Assessor Information
You need to read this information before conducting an assessment. It outlines the intent and
processes surrounding this RPL assessment and how it differs from assessment undertaken
following formal training.


SECTION B – Candidate Information and Application Forms
You give this information to the candidate. It tells them about the assessment process as well as
containing simple forms for the applicant to fill out. From the information provided by the candidate
on these forms, you will be able to gain a general understanding of the skills and experience the
candidate may have, as well as potential referee contacts.


SECTION C – Competency Conversation
You use this section to determine and record candidate competence via a competency
conversation. In other words, these questions guide your conversation with the applicant and assist
in your assessment of their competence. The notes you take about this conversation are important
evidence for assessment.


SECTION D – Practical Tasks and Observation Recording Sheets
You use this section to assess competencies through a practical demonstration of the candidate‟s
skills. It contains practical tasks/scenarios on the outcomes required to determine competency and
a place to record your observation. The notes you take are important evidence for assessment.


SECTION E – Resources for Practical Tasks
You use this section to access required resources for performing practical tasks and scenarios.


SECTION F – Third Party Verification
You give this section to the referees to confirm the candidate‟s skills and experience in this
qualification/occupation. The referees may fill out the appropriate form and return to you to confirm
your judgement. You may be able to complete this part of evidence gathering in person while at the
workplace.


SECTION G – Assessment Tables
You use this table as a reference tool to see at a glance how units/elements of competency are
assessed within the tool. All the elements and performance criteria within the competency units are
cross-matched in this table with a corresponding assessment question/task/scenario. This allows
you to validate the assessment process against the qualification.

                               ADVICE FOR ASSESSORS


This RPL Assessors Kit streamlines the RPL assessment process for Certificate III in Concreting
by taking a practical approach to RPL and increasing the use of on-site questioning and
observation. This will assist in developing a “picture of the candidate‟s skills and knowledge”. This
picture can then be compared with industry standards enabling a determination of whether the
candidate has achieved the required outcomes.

IMPORTANT ASPECTS TO REMEMBER:

A sound knowledge of assessment and the qualification is essential

It is important to have a good understanding of the competencies and qualification/s appropriate to
the candidate‟s goals.

Assessing a single unit of competency is rarely cost or time effective. Where possible, effort should
be made to assess several units at the same time taking advantage of any commonality in content.
This means looking at the whole picture of a particular job role as it happens in industry and
assessing holistically. This saves valuable time in the assessment process.

Assessment involves judgement

This tool encourages the use of a “competency conversation” to maximise the candidate‟s
opportunities to demonstrate competence. This is NOT an oral exam. It is about using the two or
three holistic questions provided to start a conversation with the candidate which draws out their
actual individual experiences and relevant skills. In other words, it is about the assessor probing
the candidate through a conversation to draw out further information on the candidate‟s experience
which may not be forthcoming due to nerves or confusion over technical terminology.

The tool also provides observable tasks to allow candidates to demonstrate skills.

Authentication/verification is integral to RPL assessment

It is critical information gleaned from the interview and observation be confirmed with those who
can vouch for the candidate‟s skill over time. Supervisors would generally perform this role.
Authentication may also be done through conversation but it cannot be stressed enough that it is
essential assessors take careful notes to back up and record their judgement.

Recording assessment is critical

Keep careful records of all aspects of conversations, skills demonstration or documentation viewed
that support the claim of prior learning. Remember – the record is the document that makes sense
of the assessment and why a particular judgment was made. Keeping detailed notes about the
candidate‟s response is vital, as is the rationale for judgement.

The assessment record is a legal document and must be signed, dated and stored according to
requirements of the State Training Authority and the AQTF Standards for Registered Training
Organisations.

Assessor summaries and other quality assurance documentation from your own Registered
Training Organisation will also be required. For examples of assessment summary documentation,
please see Assessment Guide Number 1: Training Package Assessment Materials Kit:

Advice on assessment of Prerequisite Units

BCG30303 Certificate III in Concreting is built on a structure of accumulated skills and knowledge.
This means that there are hierarchies of skills and knowledge that are built up from a range of
competencies. Any units of competency that underpin others are listed as prerequisites. In terms of
training delivery and assessment, the term „prerequisite‟ means that a person cannot be deemed
„competent‟ in the higher level unit until they are competent in the prerequisite units. An RTO may
choose an integrated assessment approach. In this case the actual assessment of prerequisites
may occur concurrently with other units.

                                 STEPS IN THE RPL PROCESS


1. Complete application
The candidate completes the application forms in SECTION B. It is important candidates provide
as much information of their previous experience in the concreting industry as is available.

Documents that may be available include but are not limited to:

              any licences
              General Safety Induction (Construction Industry) Card (Blue Card)
              brief CV or work history
              certificates/results of assessment
              indentures/trade papers
              certificates/results of assessment – interstate/overseas
              certificates/results of assessment – universities
              results/statement of attendance/certificates – vendor training courses, in-house
               courses, workshops, seminars, symposiums
              results/statements of attendance/ certificates – club courses e.g. first aid, officials, surf
               life saving, etc
              tickets held eg forklift, crane, etc
              photographs of work undertaken
              work diaries/task sheets/job sheets/log books
              site training records
              site competencies held record
              membership of relevant professional associations
              hobbies/interests/special skills outside work
              references/letters from previous employers/supervisors
              industry awards
              any other documentation that may demonstrate industry experience

Candidates also need to provide contact details for one or two referees who can confirm their
industry skills in context and over time.

To have skills formally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework, you must ensure
the candidate‟s skills meet industry standards.


2. Interview about candidate’s documentary information
Review the information provided by the candidate and arrange a time for both you and the
candidate to discuss. Begin alignment of documentation and skills to the following qualification:

                                  BCG30303 Certificate III in Concreting

The candidate will have the opportunity to discuss and identify previous experience with you. The
available documents are step one in collecting information and you will need to determine which
units of competency, if any, are fully covered at this stage. You use your own or your RTO‟s
assessment recording forms to record this stage of the assessment.

There may be instances where the candidate has little, or no, documentary information of industry
experience. This is not a barrier to gaining recognition. This will just require you to rely on the
questioning, practical assessment and referee validation phases of the RPL process.

                                                                        BCG30303 Certificate III in Concreting




3. Questions for the Competency Conversation
The bank of questions in SECTION C is the next phase in collecting evidence for the RPL process.
The questions are designed to enable you to have a “competency conversation” with the candidate
to further gain evidence of their past experience. REMEMBER, the primary focus is on the
candidate‟s experience.

Each question has “key points” to look for in responses. You may use the list of key points to
formulate questions of your own if you wish, or contextualise the question to the candidate‟s
particular work situation. The Record of Conversation sheets indicate relevant content that should
be sought. Place a tick next to each key point as you hear this topic being discussed during the
conversation. You should read the “industry requirements” of each competency before the
candidate answers the questions posed. You may also target the assessment to those aspects that
present the greatest risk in the industry. Questions are aligned with the relevant unit/s of
competency in SECTION G.

It is not intended every question for all competencies is asked, only those competencies the initial
interview about the candidate‟s documentary evidence has failed to fully address. The question
bank covers most but not all units in the kit. Units without questions are covered in the practical
assessment/scenario section.


4. Practical assessment tasks
It is important that you use both Steps 3 (Questioning) and 4 (Practical Assessment) in doing this
assessment. The RPL process is a streamlined RPL process which does not rely solely on
practical assessment but uses a combination of questioning and practical to provide evidence of
candidate competence.

This is the third phase in collecting evidence. A practical skills test is then conducted by you at the
candidate‟s workplace or another suitable venue. Appropriate permission must be sought before
entering workplaces.

This is a further opportunity for candidate to demonstrate competence. It is expected the practical
assessment will comprise only those competencies the candidate is still unable to demonstrate
knowledge/experience in after documentary review and questioning have been applied. These
assessments contain the practical skills and application of knowledge for the qualification. A
number of holistic practical assessments are included in this kit (SECTION D) to assist you with
tasks suitable for observation on the job.

You decide if the response to questions and practical assessment tasks fulfils the requirements of
the standard and may choose to pursue the issue further for a determination to be made. The
assessment is a conversation/observation, not an exam, and you are encouraged to assist
candidates to focus responses toward relevant issues.

Assessing through observation and questioning, particularly on the job, will speed up and
streamline the RPL assessment process.

NOTE: Where candidate‟s documentation and questions meet the assessment requirement, it is
still strongly recommended the candidate undertake one practical assessment so you are confident
in making a judgement of “competent”. The practical assessment selection should be negotiated
between you and the candidate.

Recording sheets for candidate information, questioning and the practical assessments have been
included in SECTION D. You may use other recording mechanisms provided these also keep a

                                                                   BCG30303 Certificate III in Concreting


complete record of assessment and justification of judgement. Candidate responses, observations
of skills demonstrated and documents presented as evidence must be noted in enough detail so
anyone external to the process (e.g. a fellow assessor, auditor, lawyer, etc) can read the record
and retrace your judgement.


5. Gap training
RPL is an assessment process designed to show areas of competence and to identify IF a
candidate has gaps in skills and knowledge against a whole qualification.

Not all candidates will have skill/knowledge gaps.

If a candidate has skills gaps, a pathway to complete training in the outstanding units can be
negotiated to assist the client to gain the full qualification.

                                          EVIDENCE REVIEW

Recognition of prior learning outcomes (both Granted and Not Granted) are now funded nationally
and as such will be included in National AVETMISS audits. NCVER have stipulated evidence
recording requirements for RPL assessments as a minimum requirement for passing an
AVETMISS audit. The following “Evidence Review” proforma has been approved by NCVER as
covering AVETMISS audit requirements for RPL recorded outcomes. It also gives you an
opportunity to track a student‟s assessment progress at a glance.

It is expected that this “Evidence Review” summary sheet (or similar) would be attached to each
participant‟s evidence compiled during the RPL assessment process.

(Place a tick in the appropriate evidence collection method column for each unit of competency. Place a line through
those units not examined as part of this RPL assessment.)

         WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE RECOGNISED IN CONCRETING?

Evidence of concreting dates back to the Egyptians who used lime and gypsum cement and the
Roman Empire who used a combination of quicklime and pozzolanic ash/pozzolana. However, the
attributes of concreting were lost for many centuries before 1756 when Engineer John Smeaton
pioneered the use of Portland cement in concrete, using pebbles and powdered brick as
aggregate. In modern times the use of recycled materials as concrete ingredients is gaining
popularity because of increasingly stringent environmental legislation. The most conspicuous of
these is fly ash, a byproduct of coal fired power plants. This has a significant impact by reducing
the amount of quarrying and landfill space required.

Concretors place, spread, compact, finish and cure concrete for buildings, roads, tunnels, bridges
and marine structures, using hand tools, vibrators, pumps, trowelling machinery and other power
tools.

A Concretor may perform the following tasks:
         mix cement, gravel, sand and water, etc., to manufacture concrete on site
         work alongside pump or other machinery
         place concrete into the formwork (usually temporary wood or steel moulds), making sure
          that it is spread and levelled, then compacted using vibrators
         operate paving and trowelling machines to float, trowel and polish the concrete surface
         create different surface textures by tamping, smoothing and shaping the concrete surface
          with a variety of hand tools
         cut joints into hardened concrete
         mix and apply pigments when a coloured surface is required
         dig foundation trenches if working on residential or small commercial projects

For most jobs, concrete is mixed at a pre-mix concrete supplier's factory and delivered to the site in
a pre-mix concrete truck.

Concretors usually work outside on construction sites which may be dusty and noisy. Much of their
time is spent standing or kneeling and they may also have to work at heights or underground in
tunnels. Concrete workers may travel from job to job and usually begin work very early in the
morning.

Concretors may specialise as concrete finishers or concrete slab layers. There are considerable
differences in the work done by concretors working on either high-rise buildings or smaller
residential and commercial buildings.

There is a growing industry in pre-cast concrete where concrete elements are cast and cured in
factories and then transported to the site for erection.

Personal Requirements:
         physically fit as the work involves heavy lifting

The Certificate III qualification for concreting requires 18 units of competency to be successfully
completed to achieve the credential. Of these 18 units, 13 are compulsory and a further 5 may be
selected from the list of Elective units (of which 3 must be AQF3 units).

“If you are doing these roles in your job, then don’t write off your skills – consider getting them
recognised.”

         TIPS AND HINTS TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR RECOGNITION


To have skills formally recognised in the national system, assessors must make sure you have the
skills and knowledge to meet the industry standard. This means you must be involved in a careful
and comprehensive process that covers the content of all unit/s or qualification/s you can be
recognised for.

Assessment happens in a variety of ways. Being prepared can save you valuable time and hassle
and make the recognition process stress-free for you.

Here are some tips and hints for you:

     1. Be prepared to talk about your job roles and your work history. Bring a resume or jot down
        a few points about where you have worked, either paid or unpaid, and what you did there.

     2. Bring your position description and any performance appraisals you have from any
        construction industry worksites you have worked in.

     3. Consider the possibilities for workplace contact. Are you in a workplace that is supporting
        your goal to get qualified? Would you feel comfortable to have the assessor contact your
        workplace or previous workplaces so your skills can be validated?

     4. Think about who can confirm your skill level. Think about current or recent supervisors who
        have seen you work in the past 18 months and will be able to confirm your skills. The
        assessor will need to contact them. You may also have community contacts or even clients
        themselves who can vouch for your skill level.

     5. Collect any certificates from in-house training or formal training you have done in the past.

     6. You can speak with your training organisation about other ways you can show your skills in
        the construction industry. These could be letters from employers, records of your
        professional development sessions, employers or clients in related industries or
        government agencies, acknowledgements, workplace forms (as long as they don‟t show
        client details) or other relevant documents.

                                                                                               RPL Assessor Kit
                                                                            BCG30303 Certificate III in Concreting



                                 STEPS IN THE RPL PROCESS

Step 1 – Provide information of your skills and experience
Complete the attached forms and provide as much information of your previous experience in the
construction industry as you can. This is your first opportunity (and not the last) to provide proof of
your variety of experience in the industry. Here you can supply examples of your work history
which could include:

              any licences
              General Safety Induction (Construction Industry) Card (Blue Card)
              brief CV or work history
              certificates/results of assessment
              indentures/trade papers
              certificates/results of assessment – universities, vendor training courses, in-house
               courses, workshops, seminars, symposiums
              results/statements of attendance/ certificates – club courses e.g. first aid, officials, surf
               life saving, etc
              tickets held eg forklift, crane, etc
              photographs of work undertaken
              work diaries/task sheets/job sheets/log books
              site training records
              site competencies held record
              membership of relevant professional associations
              hobbies/interests/special skills outside work
              references/letters from previous employers/supervisors
              industry awards
              video footage
              any other documentation that may demonstrate industry experience

Depending on the industry you have worked in, you may or may not have documentary evidence
available. This should not deter you from seeking RPL as the Assessor will work with you during
the RPL process.

You will also need to supply contact details of one or two work referees who can confirm your skills
in the industry.


Step 2 – Conversation with Assessor

An assessor will review the information you have provided (usually with you) and begin to match
up your skills to the units/subjects in the qualification. At this point, you will have the opportunity to
discuss and identify your previous experience with the assessor who will understand your industry
experience and conduct a competency conversation with you. You will be required to answer
construction industry related questions to identify your current skills.


Step 3 – Practical demonstration of your skills
The assessor will conduct a practical skills test at your workplace (if appropriate) or at another
suitable venue. This, again, is an opportunity to demonstrate your level of competence. This
assessment will be focussed on skills that are required in the qualification. Your assessor will
identify the skills that he/she will want you to demonstrate.

Further steps
After the assessment, your assessor will give you information about the skills that have been
recognised and whether you have gained the full qualification. If you do have skill gaps, these may
be addressed through flexible training.

                       SECTION C
   Competency Conversation
        This section assists the assessor in documenting the competency conversation.

                           Do NOT give this section to the candidate.

Once you have assessed the candidate‟s documentary information and determined which
competencies you still require more information/evidence on, you use the question bank and
Record of Conversation sheets in this section to document evidence of past experience. It is not
intended that every question for all competencies be discussed during the conversation, only those
competencies the initial documentary review has failed to fully address.

Each question has “key points” to look for in responses. You may use the list of key points to
formulate questions of your own if you wish, or contextualise or rephrase the suggested question to
the candidate‟s particular work situation. The questions are not intended to be a formal „script‟ for
the assessor to follow, but to provide guidance in exploring the range of the candidate‟s skills,
knowledge and experience in performing a particular task or function.

The Record of Conversation sheets indicate relevant content that should be sought. Place a tick
next to each key point as you hear this topic being discussed during the conversation. In doing so,
you are making a statement of fact about what you hear the candidate say during the competency
conversation. Use the Comments section to provide further detail about the context of the
discussion or briefly outline any examples discussed by the candidate. You may also use the
Comments section to make a brief analysis of the responses or summary judgements about the
quality of the candidate‟s responses in relation to the requirements of the competency standard.

Remember, the notes you take about this conversation are important evidence and should be
retained in the candidate‟s assessment record.

                       SECTION F
            Third Party Verification
The preferred approach in gaining third party validation is to take the forms in this section to the
candidate‟s previous employers or referees to gain confirmation of the candidate‟s skills against
the required competencies. This would be done during a conversation or interview with these
people.

It may be beneficial to make contact with the employers/referees early in the recognition process to
make appointments, particularly if you have to travel some distance to visit them. This may be
done on the same day as a practical assessment in the workplace if appropriate.

It is recommended that verification be obtained from one or two referees who can confirm the
candidate‟s industry skills in context over time.
