Work Placement

To successfully complete this qualification, the students must complete 200 hours of practical placement. Diversitat Training is responsible for organising this placement and has a network of suitable community agencies who will provide work placement for our students.

Each venue has been assessed by the Placement Co-ordinator as suitable for the student based on the students own learning and career goals and availability of placement providers.

The Trainer/Assessor will visit the student at their work placement venue twice per term during the last two terms (4 times total) to meet with the student and the allocated employee of the venue to discuss student progress.  This will be done by zoom video conference where social distancing measures are being followed.

Students are required to read the Placement Handbook and their Practical Placement Workbook before commencing work placement and this will be supported by their Area Co-ordinator to ensure they have a full understanding of their participation.

Before commencing work placement, a Practical Placement Agreement must be signed by Diversitat, the workplace and the student. This Agreement outlines the responsibilities and rights of all parties which can be sourced through the Placement Co-ordinator.

Before commencing work placement, students are required to undergo a National Police Check and a Working with Children Check. Students are informed of this requirement during enrolment and in the Student Handbook.

Entry Requirements

To enrol in this course students must:

  • Have a permanent cognitive impairment / intellectual disability
  • Be 18 years of age
  • Pass a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check
  • Have at least the required entry level language, learning and numeracy skills in accordance with the Australian Core Skills Framework levels (Learning L1, Reading R1, Writing W1, Oral Communication OC1 and Numeracy skills N0). This will be determined by Diversitat Training by way of an online test followed by an interview (Pre-Training Review).

Technology Requirements

Diversitat Training qualifications require students to have an intermediate understanding of the use of computers and the internet. If they do not have skills at the required level they will be provided with additional support such as one on one training, mentoring and peer support. Students are recommended to have access to a computer and a broadband internet connection at home.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements

All students are assessed prior to enrolment to ensure they achieve competence at the required ACSF entry level utilising Diversitat’s Qualification Suitability Assessment tool (LLN Robot) and during the pre-training review interview.

The tool assesses Reading, Writing, Numeracy, Oral Communication and Learning skills; as well as the applicant’s suitability for the specific qualification applied for.

A Pre-Training Assessment is conducted prior to enrolment to determine the ACSF levels of the student. The assessment tools used are accompanied by a marking guide. This marking guide ensures consistency between assessors. All staff undertaking assessment of the completed ACSF pre training assessment tools have received training in this task.

The entry level is a level below the units of competency level, therefore where students are at the entry level, rather than the course level, additional support will be offered around those core skills.

Pre-Training Review (pre-enrolment process)


To ensure that you enrol in a course that is the most suitable and appropriate and one that will offer you the best opportunity for success, prior to enrolment you will be required to undertake a Pre-Training Review, which includes;

Pathways conversation

We will discuss with you and record your responses;

  • Your aspirations and interests and consider how this will lead you to the job you want or to further study
  • The skills, experiences and education you already have
  • How your language, literacy and numeracy skills will best suit the course
  • How we can ensure the learning strategies and materials suit you
  • If you need support with access and the use of technology
  • How you prefer to study
  • If you need any other support to help you

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) involves a formal recognition of the skills and knowledge you have already achieved through previous studies, work and life experiences.

To obtain Recognition of Prior Learning you must satisfy the requirements for the entire unit, not just some parts of it.

If you believe you qualify, we will formally assess your existing skills and knowledge and determine if they can count towards your qualification and shorten the period of training. This will take into account;

  • work-related training courses
  • on-the-job skills and work experience
  • volunteer and community work
  • a combination of all of the above

There is Fees for RPL are determined based on units and nominal hours.

Credit Transfer

Obligation to recognise qualifications and statement of attainments (Credit Transfer)

It is our obligation to recognise qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other RTOs which align to your proposed course of study. This is known as Credit Transfer (CT).

You may be eligible for credit transfer of units if you have studied before. This means you will not need to repeat a unit if you can provide certified evidence of successfully completing a unit that is equivalent to a unit currently included in a course or traineeship.

To apply for a Credit Transfer you will need to present the original certified copy of Qualification or Statement of Attainment and a transcript clearly indicating the course and units undertaken and results obtained. This should take place prior to the commencement of the course.

If you are a full fee paying student, you will need to provide the evidence within 2 weeks of your enrolment application or you will be charged tuition for those units.

There is no fee for Credit Transfer.
