We are proud to announce our updated Language, Literacy and Numeracy Indicator. The candidate answers a series of questions designed to approximate their learning, reading, writing, oral and numeracy abilities. After completing the assessment the system produces a graph showing the candidates ACSF performance level.

Just a reminder that RTO's have statutory requirements to submit an Annual Summary Report of the Learner and Employer Questionnaires to ASQA by the 30th June 2016.

We have designed our platform to streamline administrative processes, especially with respect to the requirements of the VET sector. Consequently the Ammonite TOMS can automatically distribute, record and then collate the results of these questionnaires for you. This leaves RTO's the more important task of reviewing and acting on these results.

The art of writing valid and relevant questions has long been a holy grail pilgrimage for content developers and trainers across many delivery methods. While the intentions of many writers is good the outcomes can sometimes be less than desirable.

At a time when training organisations are increasingly challenged to find ways of ensuring the authenticity of the certificates they issue, a significant new technology called the blockchain might very well provide a permanent solution to this conundrum.

With the requirement in the Standards for RTOs to implement a systematic approach to assessment validation, Ammonite is proud to announce that we have built into our platform systems that will deal with this requirement seamlessly. This will come as welcome news to our clients.

To keep us at the forefront of innovation, we continually embrace progressive practices throughout our lives. Our office environment/culture is certainly not immune either. To combat the issues surrounding 'sitting is the new smoking' the entire office has switched to standing desks months ago.

Combined with the occasional lunchtime workout, and the 30 minute pushup timer (which comes around all too quickly!) all of the staff here at Ammonite also do Crossfit.
