Reasonable Adjustment

Adapted Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment for candidates with a disability – November 2010 – Prepared by – Queensland VET Development Centre

Reasonable adjustment in VET is the term applied to modifying the learning environment or making changes to the training delivered to assist a candidate with a disability. A reasonable adjustment can be as simple as changing classrooms to be closer to amenities or installing a particular type of software on a computer for a person with vision impairment.

Why make a reasonable adjustment?

We make reasonable adjustments in VET to make sure that candidates with a disability have:

  • The same learning opportunities as candidates without a disability, and
  • The same opportunity to perform and complete assessments as those without a disability.

Reasonable adjustment applied to participation in teaching, learning and assessment activities can include:

  • Customising resources and assessment activities within the training package or accredited course
  • Modifying the presentation medium
  • Candidate support
  • Use of assistive/adaptive technologies
  • Making information accessible both before enrolment and during the course
  • Monitoring the adjustments to ensure candidates needs continue to be met

Assistive/Adaptive Technologies

Assistive/Adaptive technology means ‘software or hardware that has been specifically designed to assist people with disabilities in carrying out daily activities’ (World Wide Web Consortium – W3C). It includes screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, devices for grasping, visual alert systems, digital note-takers.

IMPORTANT:

Reasonable adjustment made for collecting candidate assessment evidence must not impact on the standard expected by the workplace, as expressed by the relevant unit(s) of competency. For example, if the assessment were gathering evidence of the candidate’s competency in writing, allowing the candidate to complete the assessment verbally would not be a valid assessment method. The method of assessment used by any reasonable adjustment must still meet the competency requirements.

Resources Required for Assessment

To complete the Practical Assessment tasks, you will require access to:

  • Computer with internet and email access, and a working web browser
  • Installed software: Word, Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • An operational food preparation organisation for which a food safety plan is developed and implemented that will allow you access to:
    • Workplace templates, including or similar to the following:
      • Consultation Log template
      • Training and Mentoring Plan
      • Food Safety Monitoring Plan
      • Food Safety Program Draft
      • Food Safety Program Review
    • At least two relevant personnel whom you need to consult with throughout the development, implementation, and review of the food safety program in the workplace. This includes personnel you have work roles relevant to food production.
    • Legislation/regulations/codes of practice/standards relevant to food safety, including
      • Current plain English regulatory documents distributed by the commonwealth, state, territory, or local government food safety authority
      • Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code
    • Opportunity to:
      • Opportunity to communicate the contents of the food safety program to at least two personnel in the workplace
      • Opportunity to meet with at least two staff in the workplace to communicate changes made in the food safety practices in their organisation.
      • Opportunity for participate in at least two food safety program audits in the workplace

Question 6
Read the scenario about checking and recording food stored in appropriated timeframes and visually examining food for quality to monitor food safety. Ashton owns a milk production company. Upon production, the company uses a heating process called pasteurisation to prolong the shelf life of milk. Milk is stored in a large tank while being heated at 69 degrees Celsius for at least 30 minutes. Thermometers are used to monitor temperatures for the whole process. Milk temperature is recorded in a monitoring document every five minutes during the heating process. Afterwards, milk is quickly cooled to retain a high percentage of the milk’s natural enzymes and beneficial bacteria. During storage, pasteurised milk is placed in individual bottles and are refrigerated at 5 to 7 degrees Celsius and can be stored for about 12 to 14 days. Each milk bottle is inspected by the staff for possible change in colour and texture. Spoiled milk may turn into a slightly yellowish colour and lumpy texture and must be disposed of immediately. Answer the questions that follow.

Scenario 1 Jacob is a food inspector for a local food audit agency. In one of his audits, he was asked to check if the meat stored in the freezer is being stored with appropriate temperature control. He used a thermometer with accuracy of plus minus one degree Celsius to check the meat’s average stored temperature, in which he found out to be negative 17 degrees Celsius. Other than the food temperature, Jacob also checked the freezer’s temperature setting which he found out to be negative 19 degrees. All temperature readings taken are recorded to evaluate the appropriateness of the practice in the company being audited. Knowing that the acceptable storage freezing temperature for meat is negative 18 degrees, he concluded that the company is appropriately and safely storing meat and has passed the inspection.

Briefly explain how Jacob concluded that the company should pass the inspection.
     
Scenario 2 Tony owns a bakery serving freshly baked bread from morning until late night. Because of lack of manpower, he sees to it that all baking processes are completed before the store opens so that the staff can focus on selling the baked goods. However, the store opens at 6 am in the morning until 10 pm in the evening. Temperature in which the bread is stored must be controlled at all times to ensure that bread is kept fresh for selling and consumption. Given the situation, Tony purchased heated holding and proofing cabinets that can store bread at precisely 20 degrees Celsius. He advised the staff to measure and record the temperate of one bread using a temperature to make sure that the temperature is well kept at all times. When the temperature of the bread goes outside the range of 19 to 21 degrees Celsius, the staff adjusts the temperature of the holding and proofing cabinet to regulate the temperature appropriately.

Scenario 1 Maxie owns a chocolate manufacturing company. She recently underwent HACCP training to receive HACCP accreditation. The accreditation grants her customers an added layer of confidence that her chocolates are safe for consumption. During the training, she learned that roasting the cocoa beans too long can destroy the flavour of the chocolate to be produced.  On the other hand, roasting too short would inhibit microbial growth that would make the chocolate unsafe for consumption. With this, she had set to have the standard roasting time of cocoa to be 45 minutes to ensure the uniformity and quality of the chocolate produced.
Identify the roasting duration that Maxie roasts cocoa.
     
Identify the reason why cocoa is roasted for the identified roasting duration.
     
Scenario 2 Nash runs a meat shop which sell a wide variety of fresh and canned meat. The HACCP authorities that granted Nash accreditation taught him that packaging allows a certain time before the meat goes stale. With this, Nash instructed his staff to keep fresh meat in foam trays and shrink wrap refrigerated for only three to five days. Canned meat can be stored for two to five years as indicated in their packaging. Anything that goes over these time period must be thrown out immediately to avoid cross-contamination
Identify how long canned meat can be stored.
     
Identify how long staff was instructed to keep fresh meat in foam while being refrigerated.
     
Briefly explain what happens to the meat if it goes beyond the prescribed duration of keeping it in foam.
     
Question 23
