Post Initial Audit
Was non-compliance identified? Yes/ No?: Yes Minor
Summary of non-compliance
Could not provide evidence that a trainer, responsible for the delivery of BSB51407 Diploma of Project Management, had undertaken any professional development in the last 12 months; or that there was a professional development plan in place for identified trainer
- Assessment task instructions do not make reference to the use of the organisations/workplace policies & procedures. This is required as part of the pc’s & essential knowledge.
- The supervisor’s report used to collect evidence of workplace practice/demonstration makes reference to ‘assessment’. The inference is that the supervisor is conducting assessment, when they are simply reporting workplace performance
- The checklist used by the supervisor is a list of the pc’s & such does not reflect the workplace tasks
- The assessment document also deems competence at element level when in fact competency is confirmed at unit level.
Course information, available to learners, is not accessible in any one location or document. The information provided to learners is not clear in as much that the information in multiple locations and currently, will not allow them to make an informed choice about their enrolment.
