We will achieve this through:
- Careful design of the assessments;
- Validation and moderation of the assessment materials conducted in our annual review; and
- An understanding of the definition and practical application of the above definitions.
Our assessments and assessment methods will ensure that we focus on the application of the skill and knowledge as required in the workplace, including:
