Be prepared to talk about your job roles and your work history. Update your resume and jot down a few points about where you have worked, either paid or unpaid, and what you did there.
Attach a position description and any performance appraisals you have from any businesses you currently work for or have previously worked in.
Consider the possibilities for workplace contact.
Are you in a workplace that is supporting your goal to get qualified? Would you feel comfortable having the assessor contact your workplace or previous workplaces so your skills can be validated?
Think about who can confirm your skill level. Think about current or recent supervisors who have seen you work in the past 18 months and will be able to confirm your skills. The assessor may need to contact them.
You may also have community contacts or even clients themselves who can vouch for your skill level.
Collect any relevant certificates from in-house training or formal training you may have completed in the past.
You can speak with ASTRA about other ways you can show your skill in the industry sector.
These could be letters from employers, records of your professional development sessions, employers or client in related industries or government agencies, acknowledgements, workplace forms (as long as they don’t show client details).
