TAFE DIGITAL (formerly OTEN, TAFE NSW) delivers courses online. Our students are located across Australia and we require high quality trained assessors to support and assess our students on work placement.
In this role as a casual offsite teacher you will be placed on our staff list to conduct workplace (WP) assessor visits for our students. When we have a student in your area, you will receive a phone call to discuss your availability to visit a particular student within a set time-frame.
If you are available to complete this assessment we will provide you with information about the student and ask you to:
Contact the centre and student to confirm a mutually agreed upon date for your assessor visit
Visit the student for 2 hours approximately towards the end of their work placement
- Complete a WP Summary, commenting on student’s demonstrated performance based on criteria provided.
- You will complete this based on observed performance, strategic questioning, student’s written work and supervisor feedback
- Upload the WP Summary to our online system for payment to be processed.
As our students attend work placement at varying times and in various locations, we are unable to guarantee regular 'Casual Workplace Assessor Visits'. We will however endeavour to use your services as often as possible and appreciate your availability on a casual basis.
