Web design qualifications →
demonstrate your skills in Web Design to gain a qualification? Learning more about the requirements of the qualification in your country may help you to focus your learning, gather evidence of your learning (or, if you are the facilitator of a Web Design course, it may help you plan your activities and assessments).
Eventually you will find below a list of links to information about Web Design qualifications in different countries. At the moment there is only information about Web design qualifications in Australia.
Learning towards a qualification for tips and strategies on managing your learning and gathering evidence towards an official qualification.
What to expect for each qualification [ edit ]
Each qualification page will list all the units of competency that you require for the qualification (and possible electives) together with:
a link to the official Unit of Competency document (or your country's equivalent) so you can read the official document yourself!
a short description of how these skills will help you (just in case the official document hasn't motivated you to learn!)
user-contributed ideas for how you might demonstrate the required skills for each unit (you can verify these with your facilitator if you are learning as part of a formal course).
a link to an Evidence Sheet for each unit that you can use to document where you can demonstrate your skills.
