If you’re using your own workplace for your unit assessment task/s, we will need to verify the skills you demonstrate in your workplace (that cannot be demonstrated in your written task/s). This requires that your current, or most recent manager/supervisor, observes you in the workplace and provides written feedback.
The first step is to get your third-party reporter approved by completing and submitting the ‘Approval for Third-Party Reporter’ form. This provides your assessor with the information needed to approve the person you nominate as suitable to provide third-party testimony.
You will need to submit your filled ‘Approval for Third-Party Reporter’ form to your coach/assessor via email ([email protected]) for them to process.
Once your nominated person has been approved, they will be required to complete the Third-party Evidence Collection Form for each unit you intend to use your workplace for.
This form asks them to confirm (or not) the skills/tasks they have observed you perform in the workplace. You will submit this form along with your final assessment submission for each unit.
Where further evidence is required, your assessor may need to contact them. As a guide, it only takes around 5 minutes to complete the Approval for Third-Party Reporter form and a further 30 mins or so to complete each Third-party Evidence Collection Form.
If you are unable to provide a suitable person for this process, you are welcome to use the CAL Case Studies for your assessment tasks instead.
