The RMIT trainer will negotiate with each of the individual apprentice and the employers as to when RMIT training staff is to attend the training site to conduct face-to-face training and assessment for each unit of competency. The frequency of visits will depend on many factors: the capability of the apprentice, how the apprentice is progressing through theory tasks using the hard copy resources/workbooks provided (or e-book copy), the nature of work conducted on the work site, and the availability of the apprentice and workplace supervisor.
The RMIT trainer will also play a crucial role in providing progress timelines for the apprentice to ensure that the activities are in line with the apprentices’ training plan. The trainer will consult with the on-site supervisor (or business owner in small to medium sized enterprises) to obtain feedback on the apprentice’s progress during each visit. It is expected that each workplace visits will involve some assessment as well as the face-to-face training.
