What is a Vocational Qualification?

Vocational studies allow you to use units completed in one qualification to be used as credits in another qualification at the same level and in some instances a higher level.

We offer a range options for delivery of training:
Classroom style training consists of face to face presentations from an instructor to a group of students. A minimum of 8 – 10 students is required to run in this format and the courses can be held in any area where sufficient numbers are secured. For large records units, course are also run in-house.
A key benefit of classroom training is the accessibility of the instructor for Q&A, group discussions and one-on-one assistance during the training as well as networking with others in the class.
Students are all required to undertake the same electives. Two units are covered in each day of training. Depending on location and numbers courses will be delivered in blocks of two days – 4 units for the Diploma and Advanced Diploma, Cert IV will be 1 X 3-day and 1 X 2-day sessions.
Distance learning is based on a more traditional method of sending a topic or lesson to the participant (can be in paper or electronic format) to read and complete activities and assessments. The content is then sent to an instructor for marking and feedback.
Distance learning can be helpful when staff are broadly dispersed, the cost would be too high to bring staff together for face to face training or when an interaction with an instruction onsite is not required.
Students can choose which electives they wish to undertake from an approved list.
Online learning is available for the Cert III and Cert IV in Recordkeeping. This offers flexibility in the individual students choice of elective units.
Blended training solutions can be one of the most effective methods of training participants where learning modules are provided to students for completion prior to onsite visits or telephone tutorials, which last for 1.5 hours per unit, plus Q&A session without leaving your workplace. Eight tutorials per course are included in the cost for the Diploma and Advanced Diploma. The Cert III and Cert IV may have additional tutorials if required.
The tutorials are pre-arranged at a time that is suitable to you and spaced so you set the course duration. It allow full choice of unit options, training can be specific to the your needs, minimal down time from the work place and no travel and accommodation costs to attend a face to face delivery at the same time still having direct contact with the trainer.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
RPL is also referred to as Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) it is the acknowledgement of a person’s skills and knowledge acquired through previous training, work or life experience. Through an RPL assessment process, participants may gain partial or full completion of a qualification in place of attending formal training. Full details will be provided to student on enrolment.
