Develop and Cultivate Ministry Relationships Learning and Assessment Options

To satisfy the requirements of CHCMGT003 Lead the work team the student will work with the Vision Colleges Online Portal for a preview of the portal go to  Student User Guide

This resource consists of 2 main sections:

  • Learning support material
  • Assessment

You should first read the learning support material. This should give you an understanding of what is required to be done in this unit.

The assessment section consists of 3 areas:

  • Formative assessments
  • Summative assessments
  • Observation reports

Ideally, you should do the formative assessment progressively as you read through the Learning Support Material. When you have finished all the reading and all the formative assessment activities you can go on to the summative assessments. At any stage, you can go straight to the assessment section.

To complete the practical section of the assessment (Observation reports) an assessor might visit you in a workplace to observe you applying your new skills. Alternatively, a third party (eg a supervisor) may observe you and provide a report to your trainer/ assessor. If a workplace observation is not practical you might need to demonstrate your skills in a simulated environment.

When you receive a satisfactory assessment result for each of the required assessment activities you will be deemed competent. The final recording sheet should be completed.
