Workplace Evidence Record Workbooks
ASA, in consultation with the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce have developed the Workplace Evidence Record (WER) Book. The WER has been designed to provide a complete record of the workplace tasks achieved by apprentices, trainees and individuals as they work towards a vocational qualification.
This Workplace Evidence Record is an essential tool, which tracks and records the apprentice/trainee’s satisfactorily completed workplace tasks through:
- Providing validation of workplace practical tasks
- Supporting the Negotiated Training Plan under apprenticeship/traineeship conditions.
- Helps further develop skills valued by the Automotive Industry
- Assists in the apprentice/trainee’s choice of future studies
- Provides documented evidence of the apprentice/trainee’s current skills
- Relates skills and knowledge to National Automotive Industry Competency Standards; and
- Measures achievement within a qualification recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework
Each Evidence Record consists of 3 sections:
Confirmation of Student Assessment by Training Provider to be completed by Registered Training Organisation
Validation of Workplace Practical Tasks – Performance Evidence – to be completed by Apprentice/Trainee
Validation by the Workplace Supervisor that he/she has observed the apprentice/trainee successfully undertake the workplace tasks.
Workplace Supervisor/Mentor Feedback Sheet
If necessary, the Workplace Supervisorcould provide feedback in this section
The WER books are presented in a sturdy hard plastic 4 ring binder enclosed within a plastic sleeve. This ensures the durability of the folder and its contents.

Young and Successful Video Series
Attracting young people into the automotive industry is critical in ensuring our industry can develop the next generation of technical and business leaders. With this in mind, Auto Skills Australia in conjunction with industry is developing an ongoing video series titled ‘Young and Successful’.
