Throughout the training course, students are required to maintain satisfactory attendance and course progress.
This will be monitored, and contact will be made with students who do not attain satisfactory progress. In addition, your enrolment may be cancelled for non-satisfactory progress by the Institute.
Students must also meet the requirements for achieving satisfactory attendance of at least 80 per cent of scheduled course contact hours. Students who persist in failing to meet attendance requirements, even after attempts by the Institute to notify and counsel them, shall have their enrolment at the Institute cancelled after a final warning has been issued and the complaints and appeals process is finalised.
A First Warning Letter will be issued if the attendance rate is 80% or below or the student has missed 5 consecutive days of classes. A Notice of Intention to Report Letter outlining an intention to cancel the student’s enrolment will be issued if the student is unable to achieve attendance of 80% by the end of the study period (6 months). The student will have access to the Institute’s complaints and appeals policy as outlined in the warning letters.
Students must also meet requirements for achieving satisfactory course progress of achieving competency in at least 50% of the units delivered in the study period (6 months). Students who persist in failing to meet course progress requirements, even after attempts by the Institute to notify and counsel them, shall have their enrolment at the Institute cancelled after a final warning has been issued and the complaints and appeals process is finalised.
A First Warning Letter will be issued if the student has not achieved competency in 50% or more of the units scheduled in the study period (6 months). A Notice of Intention to Report Letter outlining the intention to cancel the student’s enrolment will be issued if the student has not achieved competency in 50% or more of the units scheduled in the next consecutive study period (6 months) after the First Warning letter was issued. The student will have access to the Institute’s complaints and appeals policy as outlined in the warning letters.
