That’s right – no going to classes because our trainers come to you.
A trainer comes to your workplace to train you either once a month or once a fortnight (depending on how fast you would like training to be completed). Customised training programs c an be structured to meet your needs and the needs of your organisations. You may be able to choose either one-on-one or group training.

Student Surveys

Student surveys are conducted during training to collect your feedback and suggestions. Topics covered in these relate to the enrolment process, the suitability of the location, resources and equipment, the quality of training, your trainer/s, and support received. The results of surveys are reviewed and included in an action plan to improve your experience and assist Diversitat to be the best it can be.

You may also be contacted to participate in a survey conducted by NCVER or a Department-endorsed project, audit or review relating to your training. This provides valuable feedback on the delivery of VET programs in Victoria. Please note you may opt out of the NCVER survey at the time of being contacted.
