Getting started with Ready Skills - Supervisor

What is Ready Skills - 

Ready Skills provides a digital logbook to students that are undertaking Vocational Training. This generally includes apprentices & trainees (Students) and these students use Ready Skills to record their workplace activities each week. 

Students log their weekly activity by selecting icons that depict the workplace activities that make up their daily tasks.

They record hours against each activity and their supervision level. They can also include job details and upload a file or photo/notes if relevant.

The student’s weekly entries require approval/verification from their workplace supervisor.

Ready Skills is available as an App or via the browser on a PC, phone or tablet.

The student’s profile provides valuable information required as part of the assessment process for an RTO.

The Profile also provides valuable information to employers who are wanting to be involved in their student’s training, such as:

  • Progress through the qualification, including % completion
  • Areas where experience is lacking
  • Areas where the student is already deemed competent
