Reasonable adjustment refers to adjustments made for students with a disability, condition or special learning need.
Students can make a request for reasonable adjustment during their enrolment.
Each case is considered individually and the all relevant circumstances are considered in making the decision
The Institute reserves the right, after the review of the needs of the student with a disability, to
Not provide services that would impose unjustifiable hardship upon the Institute or the activities provided during the course of operations.
The range of reasonable adjustments made may include (but not limited to):
• The use or loan of adaptive assistive technology or equipment for use by people with a disability or illness to enable them to undertake their training/assessment in a fair and equitable manner (e.g. seating, personal computer access)
• Alternative methods of assessment (e.g. verbal assessment, practical demonstration)
• Individual conditions of assessment (e.g. seating arrangements, additional 10 minutes per hour, toilet/rest/exercise breaks, bite sized food/drink)
• Accessible learning formats (e.g. large print materials, coloured exam paper)
• Provision of a scribe
• Referral to additional services.
If the evidence is graded as NS – Not Satisfactory you will be required to re-submit the evidence. In this case, you will be provided with clear and constructive feedback based on the assessment decision so that they can improve your skills / knowledge prior to reassessment.
Where a ‘NS – Not Satisfactory’ judgement is made, you will be given guidance on steps to take to improve your performance and provided the opportunity to resubmit evidence to demonstrate competence. The assessor will determine and discuss the reasons for NS – Not Satisfactory on any of the criteria and will assess you through a different method of assessment e.g. verbal/oral questioning, problem solving exercises.
You will be notified within 10 working days of undertaking an assessment of your result in achieving competency
If a student does not complete the assessment, they should notify their trainer as to why they did not complete the assessment and if due to illness, a medical certificate must be produced and apply for Special Consideration in accordance to MITP91 Special Consideration Policy and Procedure.
In the above scenario, student will be given an opportunity for reassessment within 5 working days with no reassessment fee charged.
Students who are deemed to be Not Yet Competent (NYC) will be provided with information identifying the areas in which they failed to achieve competency. Students will then have the opportunity to repeat the assessment task and relevant reassessment fees will apply for the unit.
If a student is deemed NYC in the reassessment, then the student is required to reenrol for the entire unit of competency and relevant reenrolment fees will apply for the unit.
