Collusion is the presentation by a learner of an assignment as their own that is, in fact, the result in
whole or in part of unauthorized collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves
the cooperation of two or more learners in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and,
as such, both parties are subject to disciplinary action. Collusion or copying from other learners is
not permitted and will result in a "0" grade and NYC.
Assessments must be typed using document software such as (or similar to) MS Office. Handwritten
assessments will not be accepted (unless, prior written confirmation is provided by the
trainer/assessor to confirm).
There are two outcomes of assessments: S = Satisfactory and NS = Not Satisfactory (requires more
training and experience).
Once the learner has satisfactorily completed all the tasks for this module the learner will be
awarded "Competent" (C) or "Not yet Competent" (NYC) for the relevant unit of competency.
If you are deemed "Not Yet Competent" you will be provided with feedback from your assessor and
will be given another chance to resubmit your assessment task(s). If you are still deemed as "Not Yet
Competent" you will be required to re-enroll in the unit of competency.
If we, at our sole discretion, determine that we require additional or alternative
information/evidence in order to determine competency, you must provide us with such
information/evidence, subject to privacy and confidentiality issues. We retain this right at any time,
including after submission of your assessments.
We will treat anything, including information about your job, workplace, employer, with strict
confidence, in accordance with the law. However, you are responsible for ensuring that you do not
provide us with anything regarding any third party including your employer, colleagues and others,
that they do not consent to the disclosure of. While we may ask you to provide information or
details about aspects of your employer and workplace, you are responsible for obtaining necessary
consents and ensuring that privacy rights and confidentiality obligations are not breached by you in
supplying us with such information.
If you feel that you have been unfairly treated during your assessment, and you are not happy with
your assessment and/or the outcome as a result of that treatment, you have the right to lodge an
appeal. You must first discuss the issue with your trainer/assessor. If you would like to proceed
further with the request after discussions with your trainer/assessor, you need to lodge your appeal
to the course coordinator, in writing, outlining the reason(s) for the appeal.
