HOW DOES IT WORK?

You will be asked to complete 7 subjects via online learning. You may also apply for Recognition of Prior Learning if you believe you already have the knowledge and skills relevant to a particular unit or units. An RPL application must be submitted at the time of enrolment and the onus is on the student to provide sufficient, current, valid and authentic evidence against each of the units. Where there are gaps in your evidence, a professional conversation with your assessor may provide additional evidence. Your assessor may also ask you to provide further evidence to substantiate your claim of competency in a particular unit/s.

Where gaps in evidence remain – that is that you cannot be considered competent on the evidence provided, gap training will be made available to you. For gap training, you will be provided with workbooks and given assessments to complete. It is possible that gap training might include practical assessments.

HOW LONG WILL MY COURSE TAKE?

This is a self-paced program so the time to complete depends on the rate of submission. It is anticipated the process will take up to 6 months and is mostly dependent on you completing the assessment so that your assessor can review it. We will move at your pace and support you to set achievable goals

You can talk to a member of the enrolments team about your particular circumstances at any time.

We will not ask you to pay any more than $1500 in advance of any service provided.

SECURITY CHECKS

As you will be working with client groups who are vulnerable and at risk, you will almost certainly require police checks and working with children checks/disability checks. 

A National Police Check certificate will list any court outcomes that can be disclosed, along with pending charges. This includes any interstate matters. The certificate won’t include any restricted court outcomes, such as certain juvenile convictions. 

If you have a previous conviction, please discuss this with your course consultant to determine if it will impact your ability to secure volunteer work in the community services industry.
