A number of approaches to course assessment are used by Institute staff. Assessment approaches may include: observation of performance in class, Gym/Massage Clinic, case studies, projects, assignments; presentations, role plays, written tests and exams, work experience or work placement.
Students will be given advance warning of the time and form of any assessment and will not be expected to sit an assessment they have not prepared for.
Students who are dissatisfied with their assessment outcome may apply for reassessment by contacting their trainer or assessor.
A number of approaches to course delivery are used by the Institute. Course delivery approaches may include teacher led classroom delivery, seminars, tutorials and supervised study. During class time students will be expected to participate by, for example, answering questions, giving opinions, demonstrating tasks, working with others in groups, making presentations and role playing situations.
Credit transfer applies to situation where students have completed units which can be proven to be identical. Credit will be granted in accordance with the Credit Transfer procedure. To apply for credit transfer, students must complete the credit transfer application form and attach copies of verified documents to support the application.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process designed to recognise previous formal or informal learning, work and life experiences that the student may have had to the extent that they are relevant to the course outcomes. The RPL process allows students to receive recognition under these circumstances and therefore enable them to focus more on areas they need to achieve competencies in order to gain their qualifications. Students who believe they already have some of the competencies in the course may apply for RPL. An essential requirement of RPL is that the student can prove that he/she currently had the required competencies. Application may only be made after enrolment and payment of fee and must be made using the RPL application form that will be provided during orientation. Students must attach verified copies of all relevant documents to the RPL application form.
