The Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) is to be targeted at appropriately trained and qualified VET practitioners and would provide an assessment of an individual’s foundation skill levels using two Australian Government frameworks – the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) and the Core Skills for Work (CSfW) Developmental Framework. In addition the tool would assist in targeting foundation skill interventions to a maximum benefit and enable reporting on foundation skills training in a consistent way. The FSAT is expected to be delivered to the Department by mid 2015 at the latest.
ACER is interested in hearing from interested VET and employment services providers to be involved in focus groups and trials in order to provide feedback and to trial and test the assessment system and the questions to be used in the various assessments.
