Thank you Claire
I have been doing what you suggested...I have gathering bits and pieces
all over the place...and yes...you always wonder whether you have done
enough or too much.
I suppose my concern is that I do not want to let my students down, but
at the same not expect too much from them.
I will keep looking and amassing.

Unfortunately, such specific advice does not exist. Unlike a "straight"
VCE subject, we don't have much in the way of course outlines. The VET
MM teachers assoc - PixelEd was formed because we needed to help each
other come to grips with it all!
For assessment tasks you'll find guidelines in this doc:
These relate to the type of task eg for a portfolio it says things like-
"The time allowed to complete and compile items for the Portfolio should
be a minimum of five hours and a maximum of 12 hours. The assessor
should take into account the nominal hours allocated to the
specific unit/s when devising the guidelines for the number of items to
There are other bits of supplementary advice from VCAA, but nothing
terribly definitive, IMHO.
As far as the actual content and to what depth you have to cover things,
you need to read the training package modules/units of competency and
the assessment criteria for the various tasks and try to work it out
from there. Those of us who have been teaching it from the start are
still trying to work it out!!! eg everyone has a different view on how
much scripting our kids need to know.
Each year, the exam presents another surprise and we discover we should
have covered something that we didn't! So have a close look at the past
Although a bit dated, the QATS material is a good guide to the
dimensions of the tasks, (see Warringal Publications website)as are the
sample tasks on the members only section of the PixelEd site
Binary Blue (www.binaryblue.com.au) is also a good starting point.
Feel free to post more specific questions to the list, I'm sure there
will be plenty of feedback.
