A range of assessment methods are employed by FEG to ensure that assessment is fair, valid, reliable and reasonable, and to meet the requirements of the relevant Training Package and the rules of evidence. The assessment process will include the gathering of evidence to demonstrate the student’s competence.

Assessment methods and strategies are consistent with the Training Package Assessment Guidelines. All assessment tools are mapped to the current version of the unit of competency including all elements, performance criteria, knowledge evidence and performance evidence and assessment conditions.

Students will be advised of the assessment requirements at the beginning of each unit and provided with details of when assessment will occur in the timetable.

To determine the student’s skills and knowledge in a unit of competency, a qualified trainer and assessor will conduct assessments. Trainers/ assessors will be provided with a Marking/ Evidence guide which will provide clear instructions and guidance on the assessment process and the criteria on which to base the judgment of competence.
