Approach to learning and assessment
To complete the requirements for the Certificate IV in Education Support, you will be required to successfully complete 12 Core Units and 5 Elective units.
Classes are timetabled over 3 days plus 1 day of compulsory workplacement and 1 day of directed study time. Your workplacement and unsupervised directed study are an integral part of your learning and assessment for the program. Classes are interactive and give you many opportunities to discuss, share ideas and practice new skills. You will participate in face to face class learning activities such as analysing case studies and scenarios, role plays, group and pair work, online research and reading articles. The work and tasks you complete during the program will focus on the teaching and learning of young people. Some of the units may be clustered as part of your learning and assessment.
Your assessments will be on-going through the program.
Assessment may include:
- question and answer written tasks
- oral tasks
- group work
- online tasks
- workbased assessment through demonstration and observation
You can seek recognition through the RPL process for any competencies held and for any relevant qualification or experience. See following link for further http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit
If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit 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 workplace experience. As a student enrolled in this program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.
You will participate in compulsory workplacement (minimum 100hrs) in a regulated educational organization to gain on the job experience. You will be supported in organising your workplacement by the RMIT workplacement coordinator and relevant teachers. You will be required to complete relevant workplacement documentation e.g. Work Integrated Learning agreements (WIL) and Working With Childrens Check (WWCC) documentation before you commence your workplacement. Your workplacement coordinator and relevant teachers will assist you with the documentation at the commencement of the program.
Many of your Units require partial assessment to be completed in the workplace: e.g. CHCECE006 Support Behaviour of children and young people, CHCEDS001 Comply with Legislative, Policy & Industrial Requirements in Education Environment,CHCEDS021 Assist Facilitation of Student Learning, CHCEDS022 Work with Students in Need of Support,CHCEDS024 Use Education Strategies to Support Aboriginal &/or Torres Strait Islander Education, CHCEDS025 Facilitate Learning for Student with Disabilities, CHCEDS032 Support learning and implement Response Behaviour CHCPRT001, Respond to Children & Young People at Risk, CHCEDS024 Use educational strategies to support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander education, HLTWHS001 Participate in Workplace Health & Safety, CHCEDS019 Support Students Maths Learning, CHCEDS020 Support Students Literacy Learning, CHCEDS023 Supervise students outside the classroom, CHCPRP003 Reflect and Improve own professional practice, CHCDIV001 Work with Diverse people, CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander cultural safety.
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 for assessment of competence, and an RMIT University assessor can visit your workplace to observe and assess your work practice and competence.
Any or all of these aspects of a Work Integrated Learning agreements (WIL) experience may be simulated or completed through scenarios.Top of page
