Create a verification form template

Why is this important?

This is the structure of your form! This is the skeleton that will format all the data and information you want to finally present to an employer or jobseeker for them to verify. You'll need to first create this template in a word processor, like Microsoft word, so that you can add merge fields in Adobe Acrobat, later on. 


You can mix and match data of your choice to make your own custom forms with: 

  • Jobseeker information
  • Employer information
  • Outcome key dates
  • Benchmark hours
  • Vacancy information
  • Weekly wage totals earned 
  • Permissible breaks

It's up to you!


You will need:

  •  Microsoft Word (or equivalent word processor)

 How to make a verification form template

  1. Create a new document in Word
  2. Add text with lines, tables, and boxes to organise the information you want the form to populate with.
    Consider the following:
    • How the form fields will be positioned
    • How size, alignment, and distribution of form fields within the document will be determined.
    • Any checkboxes and signature lines required for individuals to manually sign or tick  
    • Which form fields will be eventually merged with data from Job Ready
  3. Browse the list of available merge fields for ideas.
    If you see a merge field you like, type the desired name for that information, such as "Placement Date", into your form.
    You're only adding plain text at this stage.  Don't attempt to add any merge fields yet (i. e the text containing underscores). That comes later!
  4. Add logos and branding to the form, if applicable. 
  5. Save the file


That's all there is to it!
