Approach to learning and assessment

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate that you are competent in 15 units of competency as outlined in the program structure (2 core units plus 13 elective units).

You will be required to undertake 912 hours of supervised learning activities (including face-to-face classes, online activities, working on WIL project).  In addition to these activities it is recommended that you allow approximately 414 hours per week of  your own time for self-directed study including reading, research, preparation for classes, prepareing for the WIL project presentation to the industry client,  assessment completion etc.

Delivery and Learning

The main form of delivery will be in the classroom with some supervised self-directed learning. Learning will ensure that units are contextualised to industry applications wherever possible, and that demonstrations and practical sessions and/or workplace sessions be incorporated wherever appropriate in the delivery strategy. You will experience a variety of approaches to learning and teaching. Classes are interactive and give you many opportunities to discuss ideas and practice new skills. You will participate in learning activities such as: analysis of case studies and scenarios, group discussions and group work. In addition to developing skills and knowledge for a particular job, this program also aims to help you to develop broad work skills, known as foundation skills.

You are expected to undertake self-directed learning in addition to those activities provided in class. This self-directed learning will often be based upon research, and reading of relevant knowledge elements of the course. Where you have the opportunity to do so, you are encouraged to apply skill elements in your actual workplace.

For learning and assessment purposes some units of competency have been grouped into clusters as listed below:

Cluster Name Units
Operational procedures in the supply chain

Develop and maintain operational procedures for transport and logistics enterprises (TLIL5020)
Manage a supply chain (BSBPRC504)

Environment and sustainability management. Conduct environmental audits (TLIU5006)
Develop workplace policy and procedures for environmental sustainability (TLIU0001)
End to end supply chain management - customers and suppliers

Apply Knowledge of Logistics (TLIX4028)      Manage customer service (TLII5018)
Manage suppliers (TLIR5014)

Risk and Workplace Safety Ensure a safe workplace (BSBWHS521)
Manage risk (BSBRSK501)                              Monitor the Safety of Transport Activities (Chain of Responsibility) (TLIF0014)


Assessment tasks are designed to simulate the workplace and require you to demonstrate the practical application of your knowledge. If you have already developed competency through prior experience, you may apply for Credit Transfer/RPL before the program commences or at any time during the program. Please refer to https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/student-essentials/enrolment/apply-for-credit

All assessment tools ensure that there are processes in place to authenticate the evidence provided. These processes include questioning and third party endorsement for RPL applicants, questioning/interviews/self-reflections for group assignments and questioning and the use of Turnitin for e-submissions. Many units have a component of group work which requires you to work collaboratively in simulated work situations. Assessment tasks will provide simulated scenarios and tasks which are equivalent to future job roles relevant to the program.

Methods of assessment of individual or clustered competencies will be dependent on individual requirements as stated in the training package. These will generally include:

  • observations of presentations
  • use of case studies
  • work simulated projects and
  • various forms of tests

Learner Support

In order to identify any learning support that individual learners may need to successfully complete the program, a customised online Language, Literacy (including digital) and Numeracy (LLN) assessment is conducted for all students prior to commencement of training. The test has been mapped to the Australian Core Skills Framework and is designed to highlight specific areas of assistance that may be required. Individualised learning support plans are then provided to students outlining the kind of support services that are available and how to access these. In addition, where cohorts of students are identified as having core skill gaps, teachers incorporate additional Language, Literacy and/or Numeracy learning activities into the delivery of the program.

Study Learning Center

If you require assistance with study skills you can access the Study and Learning Centre (SLC):


The Center offers practical advice on assignment writing and discipline-specific language and learning skills. It can also assist with specific skills you may need to succeed in this program, including any language, literacy or numeracy problems.

Equitable Learning Services

If you have a disability, long-term illness and/or mental health condition you can access support from the Equitable Learning Services (ELS).  In consultation with you, the ELS determines Reasonable Adjustments (RAs) and Equitable Assessment Arrangements (EAAs) This support provides equal opportunity in their studies in accordance with the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992. The ELS also provides staff and students with information and assistance in relation to disability related matters.

If you require assistance you can access the Equitable Learning Services (ELS):

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners can gain support and encouragement from the Ngarara William Centre.

Ngarara Willim means ‘gathering place’ in the language of the Wurundjeri, the traditional custodians of the land where RMIT stands.  Staff can assist learners to engage and re-engage with education. They offer ongoing guidance with study, living and cultural needs.

If you require assistance with your study and other matter you can access Ngarara Willim Centre:

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 RMIT University program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.

In the Diploma of Logistics students  will work for an industry client, and after analysing their business and the external environment you will develop a business plan which will consist of :

Students will be working with an industry client on an authentic industry project.  Every year our industry partners provide a project that introduces the students to a current industry practice and environment.  In 2021 semester 1 we will be partnering with Riipen International and the students will work on a global WIL project that requires them to undertake a global competitive review to identify gaps in the market and to capitalise on new market opportunities for the client. Students will present their projects to the client and the teaching team. Students will also be working on a project in partnership with “Myfreight” a cloud based tracking management system, an Australian company with international exposure in New Zealand and potentially in the USA.
