Foundation Skills Videos

Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council

What the client wanted

Precision Consultancy worked with CSHISC to develop a series of short video clips on how to implement components of the Foundation Skills Training Package into vocational training.

This project was funded by the Commonwealth through the Department of Industry.

 

What we did

We explored the aims of the videos with the client and came up with a number of topics to cover the key information that trainers and industry representatives were looking for, about foundation skills. Then we set about writing scripts and having the scripts converted to a video format, where the information can be easily accessed.

 

The result

A suite of nine informative videos have been developed. The videos can be located on the CSHISC youtube or vimeo channels. The best sequence to view the videos is as follows:
