ADAQ Training is committed to providing flexible delivery and assessment to meet the needs of individual students. ADAQ Training provides students guidance and mentoring as well as assistance to train in a workplace environment. ADAQ Training caters for differences in learning styles by using a variety of delivery and assessment methods such as demonstration, role play, observation, problem solving, self-paced learning and self-assessment.
Assessments are an integral part of the learning process and allow ADAQ Training trainers to ensure students meet unit competencies.
Assessments methods include quizzes, written assessment, video assessments, short answer questions and workplace observation. ADAQ Training trainers are there to support you through all assessment requirements. All assessment is submitted via Canvas and students will receive notification when assessments have been graded. Students will be given an opportunity to resubmit assessments if required following trainer feedback.
Submission of Assessments
All assessments, with the exception of workplace assessments and workshops, are completed and uploaded (where applicable) in our learning management system. File uploads will not be accepted via email or any other channel.
Failure to Progress
ADAQ Training students are expected to show commitment to their study and to progress through units of study in a way that ensures they can complete their course in the required timeframe. Students are provided a qualification schedule at the commencement of study, which provides a suggested path of study and general timeframes for unit completion. Adhering to this schedule will see students successfully complete their course within the required timeframe of study. It is your responsibility to meet the progression requirements for your course with ADAQ Training.
This means you are required to:
- Submit and undertake all assessment to ensure timely completion of units of study.
- Ensure required workplace assessments are scheduled and completed so that competency can be awarded.
- Complete all requirements for the course within the prescribed course duration.
If you are having difficulties in managing satisfactory academic progression, it is your responsibility to be proactive and discuss the matter with your trainer who will work with you to make a plan that allows you to successfully complete your studies. ADAQ Training monitors academic progression of each student. If you are identified as making unsatisfactory academic progression, your trainer will contact you to discuss your progression and your options to improve your performance.
Students are identified as being at risk of unsatisfactory academic progression where there is:
- Failure to submit assessment tasks
- Unsuccessful completion of assessment tasks
- A high rate of assessment resubmission
- Failure to participate in online learning
- Non-attendance at required workshops
- Failure to schedule and complete workplace assessments.
Where a student continues to demonstrate unsuccessful academic progression, ADAQ Training will introduce more formal intervention strategies, which may include:
- A formal meeting between ADAQ Training, you and other relevant stakeholders (parents/guardians if under 18 years of age, employers, school etc.) to discuss intervention strategies and study plans that may need to be put in place.
- A plan detailing how progression will be managed going forward including a clear outline of goals and deadlines to be achieved to ensure continued progression is satisfactory
Note that under legislation and funding agreements, ADAQ Training will also be obligated to report academic progression issues to your parents/guardians (if you are under 18 years of age), your school (if you are enrolled in secondary school), your employer (if you are an apprentice or trainee), and apprentice organisation if applicable. Where a student continues to make unsatisfactory academic progression despite formal intervention strategies and the development of a study plan, ADAQ Training will withdraw the student from the course. No refunds will be given.
Plagiarism is taking someone else’s work and/or ideas and presenting them as your own, with or without their consent. Plagiarism is unethical and means a student has not meaningfully participated in, and completed, the proper learning process. It is a form of cheating and ADAQ Training takes instances of plagiarism seriously. The following are examples of plagiarism:
- Copying another student’s assessment.
- Purchasing an assessment from another person or paying someone else to complete assessments on your behalf and presenting them as your own work.
- Copying sections of text and not including the correct acknowledgment of where the information was sourced.
- Combining multiple ‘sections’ of text from various sources to form an assessment response without referencing each.
- Unintentionally failing to acknowledge work, information and ideas that are presented as your own.
If you are unsure of referencing protocols or how you may need to use referencing in your course, please reach out to your trainer who can advise you on ADAQ Training’s expectations and requirements.
ADAQ Training will issue a statement of attainment for all units successfully completed. Upon successful completion of a whole qualification ADAQ Training will issue a qualification certificate in line with national policy requirements for issuing AQF qualifications. The certificate will include a transcript of results for all the units contained in the qualification. Where a student has outstanding fees and/or has not provided a valid USI, no qualification will be issued until full course fees have been paid and a valid USI provided to ADAQ Training.
All statements of attainment and qualification certificates are issued digitally. If you require a hardcopy, a fee will apply to cover administration and postage costs.
