Evidence Guide: CUVICS02B - Share ideas in the workplace
Tips for gathering evidence to demonstrate your skills
The important thing to remember when gathering evidence is that the
more evidence the better - that is, the more evidence you gather to
demonstrate your skills, the more confident an assessor can be that you
have learned the skills not just at one point in time, but are
continuing to apply and develop those skills (as opposed to just
learning for the test!). Furthermore, one piece of evidence that you
collect will not usualy demonstrate all the required criteria for a
unit of competency, whereas multiple overlapping pieces of evidence
will usually do the trick!
