Training is delivered “face to face” by qualified and industry-experienced trainers and you are required to attend each scheduled class where your trainer will decide the learning pace, method and sequence appropriate to your learning needs.
Bridge acknowledges the National Assessment Principles issued under the Australian Qualification Framework and is committed to validity, reliability, flexibility and fairness in assessment processes for the training programs that it delivers to its students.
The Module class is an information and action session where new content is delivered and ‘soft skills’ are developed through practical interactive group work activities. The module will be completed with instructions provided for assessment completion.
A variety of learning methods are employed and can include case study scenarios, field trips, and “hands on” practical classes, role play techniques, group work, discussions, presentations, project developments, quizzes and assignments.
Assessment and Project Work
Students can attend project sessions at a time that suits their personal schedule. This is where students complete assessment work using Bridge’s online Leaning Management System (LMS) and receive support from their trainer. There are also formative activities delivered in the project class that students participate in to practice their techniques until they have got it!
Assessment tasks and strategies cover a wide range of methods and may include the creation of specific written documents, projects 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. As a general rule for any major assessment, you will be provided with detailed task assessment instructions including the date the task is due to completion.
In Vocational Education and Training (VET) an exam is called an assessment. After you complete your assessment you will be graded either Competent (C) or Not Competent (NC).
This is a teacher-centred class and provides smaller groups of students with knowledge of various topics on the latest trends in business, topical issues, politics, career development strategies or the latest theoretical concepts.
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.
