Practical Skills Assessment is an option offered when the candidate is more confident of demonstrating than explaining their skills to the assessor. It provides a more hands-on approach in the kitchen than mere discussion does. The practical assessment takes five to eight hours. You are required to complete a series of practical work-based tasks that demonstrate your skills and take a short interview and/or written assessment designed to find out the depth of your knowledge and how you apply that knowledge. Practical Assessment is conducted in English and no interpreter is allowed. The practical tasks and interview questions asked by the assessor are based on the units listed in your trade.
You will be assessed by an assessor who is: A qualified and well-experienced trades person in the relevant occupation. The assessor also holds a qualification as an assessor. Usually, the assessor is the panel assessor from Victoria University, Australia.
Practical Assessment will be held at Victoria University’s approved venue. The Approved venues are located in India, Nepal and Dubai. Assessments are conducted in Melbourne, Australia for local candidates.
