Student account details: All students are issued a user name and password upon enrolment. This provides access to our online administrative tools at anrantraining.edu.au and a means of updating personal records.
Student information: Students may review their account details by logging in to the system via the student portal. Students are also requested to complete the student survey questionnaire which will be supplied at the successful completion of the course. While students are not obliged to answer these questions, the information is requested to assist the federal and state governments in vocational education and training (VET) research. On your profile page you will be able to see all your course information and student resources. Students will also need to supply their Unique Student Identifier (USI) to us before they may receive their certification. This is now a Federal Government obligation and further information on how to obtain this will be supplied at the end of your course, or may be found at www.usi.gov.au or calling 13 38 73.
Confidentiality: Anran Training is obliged under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 to disclose to the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), and other related government entities certain information relating to your studies with us, including student identities and details of issued qualifications and statements of attainment. Other than this, student and client personal details always remain confidential and are not disclosed to any other third party without your written consent.
Assessment: Student assessment is based on demonstration of competency. Students are assessed as competent (C) or not yet competent (NYC). To be assessed as competent (C), students need to provide evidence which demonstrates that they have the essential knowledge and skills to successfully complete the relevant unit to the required standard. Competency is simply about demonstrating that a student can complete the task with confidence to the required industry standard. An assessment of ‘Not Yet Competent’ (NYC) indicates that further demonstration of the knowledge and skills are required. Our Assessors will provide feedback to guide all resubmissions and are available for contact if required. There are four key principles that are a part of the assessment process:
• Validity: The assessment adequately samples the range of skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate competence. The current performance of the competencies in the workplace is assessed. The results of the assessments can be used as a pointer to the student’ performance in the workplace.
• Reliability: Reliable assessments use methods and procedures that engender confidence that competency standards and their levels are interpreted and applied consistently to all students.
• Flexibility: Flexible assessments should provide for the recognition of competencies no matter how, where or when they have been acquired, draw on a range of methods and be appropriate to the context, task and person.
• Fairness: Assessment is fair if it does not disadvantage particular students. For assessments to be fair, students must clearly understand what is expected of them and what form the assessment will take.
Each student is allowed two (2) attempts at submission of assessment however assessors will work with the students in any area identified as needing assistance. This number of attempts may be greater if so indicated in the applicable course brochure available from the individual course page from www.anrantraining.com.au. If more than the specified maximum number of attempts are required, an additional assessment fee may apply.
Dishonest student conduct: Cheating is the dishonest presentation of an assessment task or activity as demonstrating your own understanding of and/or ability in the subject concerned. Some examples of cheating are submitting someone else’s work as your own; submitting another author’s work without proper acknowledgement of the author; or allowing someone else to submit your work as theirs. If evidence of cheating is established the student will be contacted to outline the concerns with their submitted work. The student will then have an opportunity to respond to any allegations of cheating or plagiarism. If it is established that the student has engaged in cheating or plagiarism they will either be given a formal warning and asked to resubmit the assessment work or their enrolment will be terminated in which case all fees paid are forfeit and non-refundable.
Inappropriate student conduct: Students may not engage in harassment or discriminatory conduct during training. Discrimination is when a student treats another person less favourably than another because of gender, age, race, religion, marital status, disability, nationality, ethnicity, or national origin. Harassment is when a student engages in behaviour that is unwelcome or which offends, humiliates or intimidates. Examples of harassment include continued negative comments toward a trainer; racist comments or jokes; spreading rumours; comments or jokes about a person ’s disability, pregnancy, sexuality, age religion, etc.; threats, insults or abuse; or offensive or obscene language. Any breaches of these standards will result in the training giving the student a warning. Further breaches may result in a student’s enrolment being terminated, in which case all fees paid are non-refundable.
Certification: Our assessment turnaround time three working days however feedback is usually provided within 24 hours of submission. If your assessment result is 'Competent', we will e-mail you a protected PDF copy of your Statement of Attainment. Testamurs and Statements of Attainment are issued in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework and all records of results are retained for a period of thirty years. Requests for replacement Testamurs or Statements of Attainment incur an additional small administrative fee as detailed on the website.
Complaints and appeals procedures: We have a fair and transparent process in place for handling complaints and appeals, and you are welcome to raise concerns with us about our programs.
