Accessing Content

How do I access my course content?

AIET uses ReadCloud for the provision of all course content.  ReadCloud’s unique eReading platform offers schools extensive functionality around the delivery of course content including the ability to collaborate inside eBooks. Students and teachers can share notes, questions, videos and weblinks directly inside the eBooks turning the eBook into a place for discussion, collaboration and social learning, substantially improving learning outcomes.

How do I access ReadCloud?

All users, Teachers and Students, must download the ReadCloud App from www.readcloud.com

Teachers are provided with their username and password, however students create their own password during the online enrolment process.

School’s invite studnets to enrol in the VET course which generates an email to the student for them to complete. As soon as the enrolment has been completed, the student has accfess to ReadCloud.

How do I change my password?

Where do I access the assessments?

In ReadCloud you need to click onto the  “AIET Platfoprm" tile for that class.  This will launch the assessment system for you.

Compliance Questions

How can I demonstrate that I have maintained the currency of my industry skills and my trainer/ assessor competencies?

There is a range of evidence that registered training organisations (RTOs) can provide to demonstrate that they are contributing to:

  • the continuous development of a trainer’s or assessor’s vocational education and training knowledge and skills, and
  • the trainer’s or assessor’s industry currency and competence.

It is important to remember that it is an RTO that must demonstrate compliance with the standards, rather than individual trainers and assessors.

RTOs seeking to prove that they are serious about the quality of their training and assessment should:

  • support their trainers/assessors in meaningful industry engagement
  • support their trainers’/assessors’ professional development in teaching and learning methods and in understanding the requirements of the vocational education and training (VET) sector, and
  • foster a culture of critical evaluation and innovation.

Evidence to demonstrate the currency of trainer/assessor skills might include documentation related to:

  • attendance at relevant professional development activities
  • participation in networks, communities of practice or mentoring activities
  • participation in industry release schemes
  • personal development through the reading of journals
  • participation in projects with industry, and
  • shadowing or working closely with other trainers and assessors.

RTOs should be able to demonstrate how development activities contribute towards:

  • trainers’/assessors’ understanding of the requirements of the VET environment
  • trainers’ vocational skills and knowledge (so that they are providing learning programs that are in line with current industry requirements)  
  • assessors’ vocational skills and knowledge (so that they are assessing to the standards required by industry), and
  • improving the way in which trainers/assessors train and assess.

Vocational competency must be considered on an industry-by-industry basis and with reference to any guidance provided in the relevant training package or accredited course.

How do I demonstarte Vocational Cometency?

Vocational competency includes broad industry knowledge and experience, usually combined with a relevant industry qualification.

A person who has vocational competency will:

  • be familiar with the content of the vocation, and
  • have relevant, current experience in the industry. (See Clause 1.13 of the Standards for RTOs 2015)

Vocational competency must be considered on an industry-by-industry basis and with reference to the guidance provided in the assessment guidelines of the relevant training package.

Training packages include industry-specific advice on vocational competencies of assessors. This may include advice on the industry qualifications and experience required for assessing against the training package (or against specific qualifications within the package). The training package will also provide industry-specific advice on acceptable forms of evidence to show currency with vocational competency.
