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 and 13 elective units).
You will be required to study for approximately 33 hours per week and this includes face-to-face classes, online activities, as well self-directed study such as preparation for classes, research, online collaboration and assessment completion.
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:
|Supply chain and Suppliers
TLIX0014X Manage customer focussed supply chain
TLIR5014 Manage suppliers
|Outsourced operations and supply chain
BSBPRC504 Manage a supply chain
TLIX0016X Managed outsourced supply chain operations
|Safety and Compliance
TLIF0014 Monitor the safety of transport activities (chain of responsibility)
BSBWHS521 Ensure a safe workplace for a work area
|Freight transfer and logistics
TLIA5035 Manage international freight transfer
TLIX4028 Apply knowledge of logistics
|Transport Management Systems & procedures
TLIL5057 Maintain, monitor and improve transport operations systems
TLIL5020 Develop and maintatin operational procedures for transport and logistics enterprises
|Ethical practices and improving sustainability
TLIX0020X Monitor ethical supply chain practices
MSS014015 Improve sustainability through readily implementable change
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 and scenarios, including fact situations
- work simulated projects
- various forms of tests
- group work
- practical demonstrations of skills
You will be provided with an assessment guide at the start of semester that includes instructions for each unit/cluster in the program.
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.
If you require assistance with study skills you can access the RMIT Study Support: https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/support-services/study-support
RMIT Study Support 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.
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. You will be required to learn and apply the technical, business and interpersonal skills needed by today's workforce.
In the Diploma of Logistics, students work with an industry client/s on authentic industry projects and there are also other industry simulated learning experiences.Top of page
