Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
This unit describes the skills required to understand and use routine education terminology in English and LOTE sufficient to interpret between the two languages in general dialogue or monologue settings in educational contexts.

If a student has not completed ALL the assessment tasks or they have completed them but some or all are not at the required level, they will be assessed as NYC (Not Yet Competent).
If a student does not submit assessment tasks at all, a DNS result will be entered.
Applying for an Extension Extension of time for assessment tasks may be granted where circumstances beyond your control prevent submission by the published due date. An application for extension of time must be lodged with your course coordinator as early as possible, and before the due date for submission.

Extensions beyond seven calendar days cannot be granted by course coordinators, tutors or the School. To apply for an extension of time greater than seven calendar days you must lodge an application for Special Consideration. Applying for Special Consideration If you are seeking an extension of more than seven calendar days (from the original due date) you must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form, preferably prior to, but no later than two working days after the official due date. Late applications will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances. For information about Special Consideration and how to apply, see: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration Penalties for Late Submission If you have not been granted an extension or special consideration, late submission will be penalised as follows: 1. Assessment tasks submitted after the due date of submission shall automatically receive a penalty of five per cent of the grades available for that assessment per day for each calendar day (or part thereof) late. 2. No assessment task shall be accepted more than three weeks after the original due date without special consideration.
