Completing placement is compulsory, and you will be expected to manage family and work commitments in order to complete your shifts. You are required to complete a minimum of 120 hours (up to a maximum of 200 hours) of placement to satisfy this component of your qualification.

Please note: prior to placement you will need to complete a Criminal History Check (yellow card) and apply for a Blue Card (working with children check). 

If your police check identifies that you have a criminal history, you may be disqualified from being eligible to undertake placement and assessment, which would affect your course outcomes. If you think this might impact you, please speak to the CEO prior to enrolment. 

You will be responsible for any costs associated with meeting these placement requirements, which may include an additional cost of approximately $45 for a Criminal History Check. 

How Does It Work?

You will be asked to complete 16 subjects via workbook or online learning. You choose the methods that suits you. You may also apply for Recognition of Prior Learning if you believe you already have the knowledge and skills relevant to a particular unit. An RPL application must be submitted at the time of enrolment and the onus is on the student to provide sufficient, current, valid and authentic evidence against each of the units. Where there are gaps in your evidence, a professional conversation with your assessor may provide additional evidence. Your assessor may also ask you to provide further evidence to substantiate your claim of competency in a particular unit/s.

Where gaps in evidence remain – that is that you cannot be considered competent on the evidence provided, gap training will be made available to you. For gap training, you will be provided with workbooks and given written assessments to complete.
