Approach to learning and assessment

Classes for this program are delivered in small groups of up to 30 students to allow for maximum interaction between individual students and their teachers. Teaching takes place in a combination of classroom delivery, group work, tutorials, online learning and practical sessions in industry standard laboratories. There is ample opportunity for student feedback and support from teachers. Assessment is ongoing, including both written and practical assessments.

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Equitable Learning Service if you would like to find out more.

Work integrated learning

RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with simulated workplace experience. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.

If you are working, particularly in a job which is related to your studies you will also be learning while at work and may have the opportunity to be assessed in your workplace for some or all of your courses. Feedback from work supervisors and others in the workplace can be used as evidence of competency, and an RMIT University assessor can visit your workplace to observe your work practice.

Program transition plan

To ensure training packages are responsive to industry priorities for new and updated skills, they are monitored and reviewed during their endorsement period. Sometimes the outcome of a review is that a qualification is superseded by a new version of the qualification, or a new qualification altogether. The school will ensure that no student is disadvanted if this happens.
