TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT INFORMATION

Course Entry Requirements

Age of Learners

All Learners must be 18 years or older.

Course sizes 

Course sizes will depend on the type of course being delivered; in the case of a larger course extra trainers will be provided to ensure a positive learning experience for all Learners.

Diverse Learner Needs

Delta Training aims to identify and respond to the learning needs of all Learners. It is our intention that all Trainer/Assessors are to identify, at the start of training, the learning and assessment needs of their Learners. This may be accomplished informally through class discussion.

Trainers will ask questions that reveal;

·         The general English level of the Learners,

·         Understanding of subject concepts and technical skills,

·         Previous experience and considerations regarding possible assessment formats.

Learners should express their views about their learning needs at all stages of their learning experience.

Delta Training helps Learners to identify their learning needs through;

·         The induction procedure,

·         Learner Feedback Forms,

·         Email surveys,

·         Trainer/Assessor discussion and

·         An open invitation to approach Delta Training with suggestions at any stage.

See LEARNER SERVICES & SUPPORT – LLN

Reasonable Adjustments

If a Learner meets entry requirements, Delta Training will make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for them to complete their course work or demonstrate competency.

This may include adjusting;

·         The physical environment,

·         The Learner materials or

·         The manner that a theory test is completed.

If a Learner with a disability meets entry requirements, Delta Training endeavours to make changes or ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary for that Learner to undertake course-work.

In situations where a Learner with a disability informs Delta Training of what they need to be able to train, Delta Training will make every effort to accommodate. Delta Training seeks advice from disability areas within government departments or organisations that represent or provide services to Learners with a disability.

Adjustments include:

·         Adapting educational premises - making ramps, modifying toilets and ensuring that classes are in rooms accessible to the Learner with a disability.

·         Changing assessment procedures -  allowing for alternative examination methods such as oral exams, or allowing additional time for someone else to write an exam for a Learner with a disability.

·         Changing course delivery - providing study notes or research materials in different formats or providing a sign language interpreter for a deaf Learner.

NB: Please inform your Trainer/Assessor prior to the commencement of the course if you have any injuries or illness that may impede your completion of set tasks and/or activities. For example:

·         If you are claustrophobic and undertaking the Confined Space Entry or Confined Space Entry Refresher courses.

·         If you are afraid of heights or suffer from vertigo and undertaking the Work Safely at Heights course.

Learners with a Disability

A Learner with a disability has the right to study at an educational institution in the same way as any other Learner. The Disability Discrimination Act makes it illegal for an educational authority to discriminate against Learners with a disability. A registered training organisation (RTO) may not prejudice and must offer people with a disability the same educational opportunities as everyone else. The DDA protects people with a disability against discrimination in education, such as:

Admission:

·         Refusal or failure to accept an application for admission from a Learner with a disability.

·         Accepting a Learner with a disability on less favourable terms or conditions than others. For example, asking a Learner with a disability to pay higher fees.

Access:

·         Denying or limiting access to Learner with a disability. For example, delivering lectures in an inaccessible format, inaccessible Learner facilities.

·         Subjecting a Learner with a disability to any other detriment such as discriminatory selection criteria.

Competency Based Training

All training is based on the principles of Competency Based Training.

Flexible delivery of Learners training

Delta Training practices the principles of flexible delivery. Programs are designed and delivered in a way that is best suited to the course content and the needs of the Learners. This means Delta Training will use company documentation as a training aid to ensure learners maximise the use of time in the class. Scenarios will be aligned with the tasks to be completed in the work place.

Training Package Requirements

All nationally recognized training, delivery and assessment comply with the requirements of the nationally endorsed Training Packages or Accredited Course Guidelines. Learners may access this information and familiarize themselves with each unit of competency’s criteria and assessment requirements.

Some courses eg Confined Space will also display competency sheets to help you understand what tasks competencies are required.

Industry consultation

Delta Training liaises with industry representatives to confirm the currency of all course material and to ensure training reflects industry needs. This consultation is essential, so that training outcomes meet the knowledge and skill demands of industry Consultation also ensures assessment strategies cover significant points and provide results that are useful to prospective employers.

Validation and Moderation

Delta Training ensures that our business model moderates all assessment tasks to ensure that the tasks, and hence the results, are reliable, valid and fair and to ensure that the marking procedures are also fair and valid.

Validating an assessment tool involves checking that the assessment task produces valid, reliable, sufficient, current and authentic evidence to enable reasonable judgments to be made as to whether the requirements of the relevant aspects of the Training Package or accredited course have been met. It includes reviewing and making recommendations for future improvements to the assessment tool, process and/or outcomes.

Assessment tasks and course results are moderated (results and assessments made are reviewed to determine whether the tool is providing consistency and reliable outcomes) by course advisory committees at bi-annual meetings.

Superseded Units/Qualifications

It is the aim of Delta Training to ensure that Learners have every opportunity to undertake the most current national qualification. When a Training Package or Unit of Competency is superseded, there will be a transition period that will enable existing Learners to finish current training and assessment in the superseded unit of competency/qualification in which they are enrolled.

As soon as is practical after the endorsement of the new training package, Delta Training will commence delivery of the new units of competency. There will be a monitored review of training resources, training and assessment strategies and advertising materials. Mapping of the old training package qualifications to the new will be accessed and any professional development requirements of current and prospective trainers and assessors will be identified and implemented.

During this transition period particular attention will be paid to monitoring client feedback and the implementation of any changes that are identified as necessary in this process.

(For further information, please refer to ‘transition to RTO new training package policy and procedure’.)

All training provided by Delta Training include accredited units of competency which are Nationally Recognised and provide Learners with a range of the 8 employability skills.

Assessment Policy

Delta Training adheres to the National Assessment Principles applicable to the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. These Principles support the award of qualifications or Statements of Attainment as prescribed in the Australian Qualifications Framework and guarantee that their qualification/s will be recognised nationally.

Since assessment and training is a cooperative process, Delta Training will make sure that learners are able to participate fully in the assessment process. Delta Training guarantees that learners will be able to raise issues and challenge the assessment outcome where they feel principles of fairness and equity (as well as competence to assess) has not been met.

Assessment Procedure

Assessment tasks are designed to evaluate evidence that a Learner can demonstrate all relevant subject competencies to the required levels.

All units will be assessed during the time allocated for course by the trainer/assessor.

All assessment tasks are competency based and cover the entire scope of the unit/s covered in the training program

Assessment methods and tools used will be made clear to the Learner prior to and during the learning process. The Assessor/trainer will ensure the Learner understands the expectations of the assessment. Time will be given for practice during the training to ensure that all Learners have the maximum opportunity to achieve competency. 

Results of all assessments will be given directly to the learner as soon as possible after the assessment process. 

Feedback will be sought from all Learners on the assessment process. This will be documented on the Assessment Task Checklists and through the Learner questionnaire.

 

Assessment will be both formative and summative. The Formative assessment will be while the Learners are practicing the skills prior to the Summative assessment where the learners will be expected to complete tasks to the required standard. The Trainer/Assessor will instruct the Learners to complete assessment tasks as documented in the course workbook. The Trainer/Assessor will provide documentation, equipment, props and any other requirements to ensure the Learner has the best opportunity to be deemed satisfactory in the Tasks. The Tasks are broken up into Assessment Observation Criteria. Each of these Criteria will be assessed individually and marked S (satisfactory) or NYS (not yet satisfactory) on the Assessment Task Checklist, and any additional comments will be recorded. The Trainer/Assessor will also be assessing all Learners on the ability to work as part of a team.

 

Assessment Methods

Assessment is conducted in four (4) different ways, depending on the course being undertaken. These are as follows:-

1.    Theory - Online - the learner undertakes theory learning and assessment at a ‘self-paced’ level. Each learner completes the information PowerPoints and videos, then answers an assessment which is marked online. This component is self-correcting and once the Learners have completed the exercise the office will be notified.

2.    Practical Assessment – The final practical assessments will be a Summative Assessment. Practical Activities completed throughout the course will be instructional or Formative assessments.

Practical Assessments will be completed as an Individual or part of a Team, depending on the required outcome. The Assessment Criteria will determine the outcome.

The Learner may ask for clarification as required from the Trainer/Assessor at any stage.

On completion of the Assessment the Trainer/Assessor will mark the Assessment Task form with a red pen against the Assessment Observation Criteria.

To be deemed satisfactory in this assessment task, you must adequately address all the assessment observation criteria. All questions must be answered correctly, if this is not achieved on Attempt 1 you will be allowed 2 further attempts.

Attempt 2 – The Trainer/Assessor will discuss the incorrect or missed activities with the learner.  The Trainer/Assessor will ask the learner to complete the task a second time. If the Learner is able to complete the activity correctly, the assessment will be marked as satisfactory. If at this stage the result is still unsatisfactory, the Learner will be allowed to undertake a third attempt.

Attempt 3 – The Trainer/Assessor will discuss the incorrect or missed activities with the learner and will then ask the learner to stand to the side and watch while another candidate completes their practical assessment.  The Trainer/Assessor will ask the learner to complete the task a third time. If the Learner is able to complete the activity correctly the assessment will be marked as satisfactory.

If Learner is unable to meet the above criteria, the Learner would be directed to the, (If a Learner is still deemed “Not Yet Satisfactory”. (See Below))

 

3.   Written Assessments

Written Assessment Type A– Learners will be given a Summative written exam including written and multiple choice questions to complete.

In this assessment, the Learner will be assessed on their ability to demonstrate knowledge of the skills gained during the training.  

The written assessment is an open book assessment and requires all questions must be answered correctly pass. The Learner will be required to read the entire question and answer choices in detail, before making a selection. The most correct answer is the one to circle as the learners preferred answer.

The Learner must complete the assessment without assistance from other persons, except if clarification is required from the Trainer/Assessor.

On completion of the assessment the Trainer/Assessor will mark the written exam with a red pen in accordance with the exam answer key.

All questions must be answered correctly if this is not achieved on Attempt 1 you will be allowed 2 further attempts.

Attempt 2 – The Trainer/Assessor will discuss the incorrect or missed answer/s with the learner.  The Trainer/Assessor will ask the learner to mark the incorrect answer with a line and the learners initials are to be placed next to the alternative choice.

If the Learner is able to explain the correct answer, the assessment will be marked as satisfactory.

If at this stage the Trainer/Assessor is unable to sign off the Learner as Satisfactory a third attempt will be offered.

Attempt 3 – The Trainer/Assessor offer the Learner an alternative course assessment exam where all questions must be answered correctly to complete. The process will be the same as for the Attempt 1 Assessment Exam.

If the Learner is unable to meet the above criteria, they would be directed to the (If a Learner is still deemed “Not Yet Satisfactory”. (See Below))

 

Written Assessment Type B Learners will be required to complete documentation for example; Confined Space Permits, JSA’s/SWMS, this is a Summative assessment.

In this assessment, the Learner will be assessed on their ability to demonstrate knowledge of the skills gained during the training.  

The written assessment is an open book assessment and requires the Learner to

·                     Work as a member of a team

·                     Use Company Policy and Procedures to complete permits or similar

·                     Use Legislative documentation - Acts, Regulations and Compliance Codes to ensure the simulated work site meets all legislative requirements.

The Learner must undertake the assessment as part of a team, but the final documents produced must be the Learners work in their own hand writing.

On completion of the assessment the Trainer/Assessor will ask you to pass the assessment documents to them. The Trainer/Assessor will mark the assessments with a red pen against the assessment criteria.

To be deemed satisfactory in this assessment task, you must adequately address all the assessment criteria. All questions must be answered correctly if this is not achieved on Attempt 1 you will be allowed 2 further attempts.

Safety & Health

Risk management is recognised as an integral part of good management practice.
