Approach to learning and assessment
You will attend classes on campus for theory, practice and assessments will support knowledge and skills through completing the daily tasks of a disability support worker. It will afford you the time to practice and consolidate the skills required of a Disabilty Support Worker, you will aslo be required to attend a day a week online for student support and assessments.
Your workplace experience will be supported by an RMIT teacher who will be instrumental in guiding your learning when you are on work placement.
Theoretical knowledge will be developed through intensive face to face tutorials and online modules. You will also need to work independently, this includes: Independent study activities such as research, reading,practical and/or theoretical practice tests or assessments.
In keeping with the provisions and requirements of the Commonwealth Disability Act 2006 RMIT offers students with disabilities specific supports to undertake and complete their studies. This includes reasonable adjustments to assessment requirements so a student may have additional time to submit tasks, be able to submit the assessment task in an alternative format, be supported by a note taker, have use of specialised aids or electronic devices during classes or workshops.
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 Manager or the Equitable Learning Service Unit (https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/ equitable-learning-services) if you would like to find out more.
Enrolled students who possess relevant prior skills, knowledge and or competencies or work-based evidence may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Recognition.
