External accreditation and industry links

The development of the program structure and the choice of elective units appropriate to the intended qualification outcomes were informed by representatives of the Financial Services industry sector in collaboration with RMIT program team staff.

Most teaching staff are either currently working as mortgage brokers or have previously worked in that job role. All teachers maintain close contact with industry through various professional development and networking activities. Further industry contact will come in the form of visiting guest presenters and from those involved in peer mentoring of students.

All learners will participate in classes where they are assisted to make connections between theoretical concepts and their practical application in the workplace. In some cases, this is the student's own workplace.  Mentoring and coaching by the teacher in order to assist learners to make this connection is a major design feature of this program.
