Approach to learning and assessment

Successful completion of this program requires you to demonstrate that you are competent in all 9 units of competency. The learning and assessments are based on industry standard requirements for Myotherapy, and our approach is focussed on preparing you for work in the Myotherapy industry.

You will participate in a range of learning activities including practical demonstrations, simulated clinic sessions, lectures in classrooms, tutorials and online learning.

You will perform a minimum of 75 hours of supervised clinical practice involving 30 clients with varied musculoskeletal conditions. Clients will include males and females from different stages of life.  These hours will be completed in the RMIT Myotherapy student clinic.  You will complete one supervised clinic shift per week treating clients from the public.

Assessment will be implemented in many forms including:

  • Written assessment tasks
  • Practical and tutorial assessments tasks
  • Group and individual projects Practical demonstrations
  • Oral presentations
  • Simulations, Role plays & Case Studies Workplace Assessment

The style of assessment will provide you with:

  • Opportunities to demonstrate application of the necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills not just recall information.
  • Information on your progress throughout your program with an emphasis on encouraging you to monitor your own progress and plan your program of study.
  • An open system where standards are specified and the required level of competence is known beforehand.

Program transition plan

To ensure training packages are responsive to industry priorities for new and updated skills, they are monitored and reviewed during their endorsement period. Sometimes the outcome of a review is that a qualification is superseded by a new version of the qualification, or a new qualification altogether. The school will endeavour to the best of their abilities to ensure that students are not disadvantaged in this process.

The accrediation for this program ends December 2022. Students who do not complete their studies by this date will be required to transition into the new program.
