Hi!

My first post on here - so forgive me if this is in the wrong forum. 

I'm in the process of a skills assessment for a pastry cook and recently received a request for video evidence. The thing is I have no such video and there is no way I can get it, as my employers would never allow a camera onto the bakery floor. 

My agent says it is highly unusual that they would ask for video evidence as that is one of the more obscure options. What I'm wondering is,  has anyone else had a similar experience?  How did it pan out? I'm just wondering if they're building up to a rejection?

Thanks for reading! 

Cheers, 

Adrian

Vetassess do ask for it in their guidelines, although in reality it's very rarely asked for by an assessment officer. The TRA officer obviously wants this evidence. They are within their rights to ask whatever additional evidence they feel they need to make an informed decision.

 

Regards,

Did they ask for any specific type of skill to be demonstrated, e.g. tempering chocolate, or do they want to see you make a complete item?  Can you ask a friend to video you making something in your own (or their) kitchen?

My OH had this request last week. He spoke to his manager and asked if he could go in voluntary to record himself prepping food/cooking food etc (his going under cook). His manager was fine with that but not during his shift. Good luck

 They want a general video of all the core competencies. I did ask if a home video would be acceptable,  but they've written back saying no. They said i could get them an even more detailed reference from my former employers, so I'll just have to talk to them and find out if they'll give me one.

It seems that TRA is looking for similar video evidence that Vetassess asks for in this case. Video evidence seems to be at the discretion of the assessor, as they certainly don't ask for it in all cases, although the guidelines do stipulate it.
