Training is delivered “face to face” by qualified trainers and you are required to attend each scheduled class where trainer will decide the learning pace, method and sequence appropriate to your learning needs.

Learning methods will vary and can include case study scenarios, field trips, and “hands on” practical classes, role play techniques, discussions, presentation, project developments and assignments.
Assessment tasks and strategies cover a wide range of methods and may include that creation of specific written documents, project or reports, formal questions (multiple choice, short and long answer), practical demonstrations, small or large group tasks, oral presentations, problem solving tasks, case studies and discussions.

In Vocational Education and Training (VET) an exam is called assessment. After you complete your assessment you will be either Competent (C) or Not Competent (NC)
Theory and Skills Classes
The College provides both Theory and Skills classes as part of our Training and Assessment strategy. In the Theory class, students receive subject matter knowledge and instruction to develop practical skills. Skills classes are an opportunity for students to receive one on one support from your trainer and to research and develop ideas around your assessment and project/s. Where a subject has a Skills class you must satisfactorily attend and complete all requirements for both your Theory and Skills class to pass the subject.
A project is an assignment that allows you to understand what you have learned in your course in a more holistic manner. The project may be a workplace problem that you have to solve or a work ‘brief’ from a client. They are practical and useful for students wanting to develop professional or entrepreneurial skills.
Compulsory Student Activities (CSA) is an opportunity for you to reflect on your learning practices by completing a reflective Journal. A reflective journal is designed to help you think deeply about your learning, especially about your progress in learning, the difficulties you have in the process of learning, the strategies you have taken to get around those difficulties, and your evaluation of your own performance.
