Reasonable adjustments and special learning needs:

ASTRAL INSTITUTE works to ensure that students with recognized disadvantages can access and participate in education and training on the same basis as other students. Disadvantages may be based, for example, upon age, cultural background, physical disability, limited or non-current industry experience, language, numeracy, or digital literacy issues.

Where pre-training interviews and assessments reveal that a student may require special support or where, after enrolment, it is made apparent that the student requires special support, reasonable adjustments will be made to the learning environment, training delivery, learning resources and/or assessment tasks to accommodate the needs of the student. An adjustment is reasonable if it can accommodate the student’s needs, while also considering factors such as the student’s views, the potential effect of the adjustment on the student and others and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.

Any adjustments made must:

  1. Be discussed, agreed, and documented in the assessment record.
    1. Benefit the student.
    1. Maintain the integrity of the competency standards and course requirements as stipulated in the training package.
    1. Be reasonable to expect in a workplace.

Reasonable adjustment may consist of:

  1. Providing additional time for students to complete learning and assessment tasks.
  2. Presenting questions orally for students with literacy issues.
  3. Asking questions in a relevant practical context.
  4. Using large print material.
  5. Extending the course duration.
  6. Presenting work instructions in diagrammatic or pictorial form instead of words and sentences.

Complaints and appeals:

If you are dissatisfied with an assessment outcome, you may appeal the assessment decision. In the first instance, you are encouraged to appeal informally by contacting the assessor and discussing the matter with them. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of such discussion, you may appeal further to either the course coordinator and/or Head of Department. If you are still dissatisfied, you may appeal formally and in writing to have the result reviewed. For more information, refer to the Assessment Policy and the Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures.

Assessor intervention:

Assessors will check if you are ready for the assessment and defer the assessment if you are not. Feedback will be given to you at the completion of the assessment.
During role play, the assessor may act as a client or employer, where required, but the assessor will not interfere with the assessment. If the assessment activities might impact on your safety or that of others, the assessor will stop the assessment immediately.

Plagiarism, cheating and assessment dishonesty:

ASTRAL INSTITUTE considers plagiarism and cheating as a serious misdemeanour. Evidence of plagiarism and cheating is treated on a case-by-case basis and the consequences for students engaging in such practices may include failure of the assessment or unit or exclusion from the course.
