CODE OF PRACTICE 

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Assisi Catholic College has agreed to operate within the standards detailed in the National Quality Framework (NQF). This includes a commitment to recognise the training qualifications issued by other Registered Training Organisations. 

 Assisi Catholic College is registered to deliver VET courses under the direction of the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) as a delegate for the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). 

All of the VET courses offered by this college can lead to nationally recognised qualifications – a certificate (if all of the requirements of the qualification are completed) or a statement of attainment (for those parts that are successfully completed where the full qualification is not completed). This certificate/statement of attainment will be recognised in all eight state/territories in Australia. This is because Australia has a national qualifications framework called the Vocational Qualifications Framework (VQF). Certificates gained can lead directly to employment, further study or tertiary pathways. 

SERVICE AGREEMENT 

Educational pathway programs are generally two-year courses. Assisi Catholic College guarantees that all students will be provided with every opportunity to complete the certificate courses offered as per the rights and obligations outlined in the enrolment process and student information handbooks. Students successfully achieving all qualification requirements will be provided with a Qualification and a Record of Results. Students who achieve at least one unit (but not a full qualification) for a certificate will receive a Statement of Attainment for units successfully achieved.
  
All reasonable opportunities will be provided to students, who enter a VET course after the initial start date, to complete the full certificate. However, this may not be achievable in all cases and students will be provided with a Statement of Attainment for competencies achieved from their entry point. Students who depart a certificate course prior to its completion date will receive a Statement of Attainment for competencies completed at the date of exit from the course.
  
All courses offered need to be of a viable class size for the College to run them. In the event that a VET subject may not run or the school can no longer deliver a course offered, every effort will be made to ensure that students may complete their studies through another RTO. In some cases this may incur costs. 

LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Assessment is competency based. Students must demonstrate competence on more than one occasion to be deemed competent.
 
A range of teaching and learning strategies will be used to deliver competencies. These may include, but are not limited to: practical tasks, group work, activities in simulated work environments, student workbooks, observations, oral questioning, work placements and industry excursions and activities. 
 
Appropriately qualified staff will asses the extent to which a student is likely to achieve the stated competency standards and outcomes of the course, based on his/her qualifications and experience. 

STRUCTURED WORK PLACEMENT 

Many VET courses have compulsory structured work placement to be undertaken throughout the two-year course. During to the nature of individual industry requirements, work placement may occur during school hours or may need to be undertaken out of school hours or in school holidays. Please refer to individual course outlines for work placement requirements.
