Approach to learning and assessment

The program is delivered by industry practitioners in one day workshops once a month.  You will learn mainly in groups through a variety of activities such as presentations, case studies, research, practical demonstrations and group discussion.

You will be assessed in the classroom, in the simulated classroom and through formal assessment tasks. The emphasis will be on the demonstration of skills and the application of knowledge in the workplace context, and how you are able to integrate these in preparation for the contingencies and demands of a busy workplace. Assessment occurs throughout the program and is evenly spaced across the duration of the program.

Other forms of assessment include:

  • Research projects
  • Written assessment tasks
  • In class group work
  • In class quiz and worksheets 
  • Practical demonstration

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 Unit (https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-and-facilities/student-support/equitable-learning-services) if you would like to find out more. 

The approach to learning and assessment for this program will include both supervised and non-supervised forms of training delivery. 
Supervised training is teacher directed learning and assessment activities. This includes: 
-    Work placements which are mandatory requirements of assessment.
-    Structured online learning activities where there is real time access to your teachers e.g. online lectures, teacher led discussions and online activities.
-    Face-to-face learning e.g. tutorials, lectures, scheduled classes.
-    Assessment tasks.
The supervised hours in this program are: 920
You will also need to work independently, this includes:
-    Independent study activities such as research, reading, practical and/or theoretical practice tests or assessments. 
-    Work placements which are not directly linked to an assessment of course competencies.

Enrolled students who possess relevant prior skills, knowledge and/or competencies or work-based evidence may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Recognition.

Work integrated learning

All students are currently working in a disability service agency workplace. This means that you will have pre-existing knowledge and skills gained through an agency induction, on-going workplace training and development and workplace experience. 
The program assessment tasks will continue to develop your knowledge and skills, requiring you to undertake individual and work group tasks such as an OHS worksite risk assessment, client communication assessment, and service planning and review. These tasks will be based on your worksite, clients, and organisational procedures and documentation.

RMIT teaching staff will be the lead facilitators during the program with input from specialist staff from St John of God Accord e.g.  Individual Client Plan Facilitator, Behaviour Support staff.
