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 unsupervised 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 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 will be clustered as part of your learning and assessment.
Due to COVID face to face classes are currently being delivered through remote online, interactive learning.
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 Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/equitable-learning-services
Work integrated learning
RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. As a student enrolled in this RMIT program you will:
- undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice;
- interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;
- complete these activities in real work contexts or situations;
and in addition:
- these interactions and the work contexts provide distinctive sources of feedback to you to assist your learning.
You will participate in compulsory workplacement (minimum 100hrs) in a regulated educational organisation 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 (WIL) agreements, schedules and Working with Children's Check (WWCC) documentation before you commence your workplacement. Your workplacement facilitator and relevant teachers will assist you with the documentation at the commencement of the program.
Many of your units require assessment 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 DisabilitiesCHCEDS032 Support learning and implement Response Behaviour, CHCPRT001 Respond to Children & Young People at Risk, HLTWHS001 Participate in Workplace Health & Safety, CHCPRP003 Reflect and Improve own professional practice, CHCDIV001 Work with Diverse people, CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander cultural safety, BSBWOR203 Work effectviely with others and CHCEDS023 Supervise students outside the classroom.
If you are working, particularly in a job which is related to your studies you will also be learning while at work and have the opportunity to be assessed in your workplace for some of your Units. 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.Top of page
