As an adult learner you are expected to take responsibility for your own learning. This means that you must make ongoing progress in your qualification and be an active and engaged student. Students who are not active and do not make progress in their course will not be successful in attaining their qualification, which could be essential to remaining employed. Students must:
- contact Australian Early Childhood College with any questions about their study
- submit assessments on a regular basis, and meet any due dates that have been negotiated
- ensure submitted work is at an acceptable standard and conforms to the Requirements For Written Assessments
This document has been developed to provide students with an understanding of their responsibilities and what will be expected of them when undertaking a training and assessment program with our organisation. Australian Early Childhood College (Recognition First) typically provides training programs that are often called distance, or flexible delivery mode, and while this program does not require you to attend classes you will need to allocate time to your study. This document outlines the study and practice activities students will need to undertake, as well as a guide to how much time should be allocated to a typical qualification.
This document outlines a "typical" program and will be familiar to many of our students. It must be remembered though that Australian Early Childhood College also works very closely with organisations, employers and students to create individualised training and assessment programs. Your program may be one where you attend workshops and complete in-class tasks. This document should be read with this in mind.
Clustered Training and Assessment
Australian Early Childhood College were one of the first RTOs to be able to offer the new Children's Services Qualifications, which were introduced in late 2013. We have clustered certain units together where they are similar and/or fit logically together into meaningful groups. This means that repetition of assessment is avoided where possible.
