Student Support

To maximise the chance of students successfully completing their training, the RTO will identify any support individual students need prior to their enrolment and provide access to that support throughout their training. This will be done using both the Enrolment Form, and a Pre-Enrolment Form, that students are required to fill in. The aim of both documents is to provide any support that may be required. This could include: Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) support Assistive Technology Additional Tutorials, and / or Other mechanisms, such as assistance in using technology for online delivery components. Where this support attracts an additional cost to the student, the RTO will make this clear prior to accepting the student’s enrolment. If there are limitations to the support your RTO is able to provide, these limitations will be made clear in information provided to a potential student.
Where the RTO identifies required support, such as literacy or numeracy, English or other language barriers or physical capabilities, and it cannot provide such support directly, it will refer the student to a third party. The costs of such third-party support will the responsibility of the individual.
Where the RTO is not capable of offering an environment suitable for the needs of a student with specific identified needs, it will inform them accordingly and may direct the student to a provider that can, and thus will not process their enrolment.
