PATHWAY PROGRAMS

Higher levels of nationally recognised qualifications tend to focus on specialisations. The benefit of completing an education and training pathway is depth of knowledge and skills. Education and Training Pathways often result in students developing into industry and subject matter experts themselves. At TriSector we appreciate that an investment in your education is costly. The temptation to choose online training or cheaper programs is almost as confusing as the number of providers willing to take your investment in return for a document that will assist in getting that dream job. Whatever your motivation you deserve an education that will not only assist in getting you there, but will have provided you with the knowledge and skills that will ensure you flourish in the field of your choosing. As the saying goes, "you have to learn to walk before you can run". At TriSector we will teach you to do both! Whether you choose one of our suggested Pathway programs or your own, we will provide you all the support you need to successfully complete your journey with TriSector. We are also in negotiation with several higher education providers to enable a smooth transaction to university. Once in place these pathway programs will be published on our homepage, Facebook Page and via the student portal.

TriSector has been an RTO since 2009 and a Delegate of the Australian Skills Quality Authority since 2015. We also hold ISO Accreditation for Quality, Health& Safety and Environmental Management Systems. If you are concerned about your health and welfare whilst studying or if the environment is important to you, always look for these credentials from your education provider.

All registered training organisations (RTOs) registered with ASQA or a state accrediting body must comply with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), when issuing qualifications and statements of attainment.

COURSE DELIVERY METHODS

TriSector uses 'Face to Face' learning to deliver the best possible outcome for students. The delivery methods are:

  • Instructor led Facilitated workshop methods
  • Practical Demonstration and Emulation in simulated environments
  • Practical Demonstration and Emulation in the field
  • On the Job training with additional

To achieve the highest possible outcomes, in addition to scheduled learning (usually 21 hours per week) Students are expected to complete additional personal self-guided study equal to a minimum equivalent of 25% of the course duration.

COURSE ASSESSMENTS METHOD

Assessments/ exams are conducted during class, workshops and through industry based projects. The assessments methods are:

  • Oral – Used in conjunction with Written and Practical Assessments this method requires the student to articulate actions and decision making prior to applying a written or practical response
  • Written – Used as confirmation of knowledge. Written Assessments may also be conducted in conjunction with practical activities for example conducting equipment inspections using check sheets
  • Practical - Skills Demonstration or Direct Observation – Under observation of a subject matter expert Students are required to undertake physical tasks where skills are required with input from the trainer assessor being used only to brief on the task, advise of outcome requirements and to confirm knowledge

QUALIFICATIONS

In Australia, Vocational Educational Training (VET) is highly regulated in order to ensure consistency across training outcomes. Training packages determine what should be delivered in each qualification. These requirements include a combination of accepted core, industry and elective units. Once a qualification is issued, they are recognised by relevant industry groups throughout the country – hence the term “nationally recognised training”. Nationally recognised training will allow you to apply your skills and use your certifications no matter what state or territory you may be currently living and working in. All nationally recognised training programs must be delivered by an RTO.

Furthermore, Australia’s VET Sector is highly regarded internationally with many countries having recognition protocols for qualifications issued by Australian RTO’s. Often Qualifications may provide a pathway into universities. Check our Pathway section for information about these pathways.

SHORT COURSES

In Australia, Vocational Educational Training (VET) is highly regulated in order to ensure consistency across training outcomes. Training packages determine what should be delivered in each Unit of Competency. The successful completion of a single unit results in a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.

Like Qualifications, Nationally recognised training will allow you to apply your skills and use your certifications no matter what state or territory you may be currently living and working in. All nationally recognised training programs must be delivered by an RTO.

TriSector offers over 30 Short Course programs resulting in th student receiving one or more (up to 8) nationally recognised Statements of Attainment. The benefits of completing a TriSector Short Course is that you or your organisation:

  • Can quickly access specific skills and knowledge to ensure you need to work efficiently, effectively and most of all, safely whilst achieving workplace requirements and complying with regulatory responsibilities
  • Will often result in a number of units being awarded not just one. Great value compared to our competitors
  • Can access qualifications where you are unable to commit to a full qualification program at one time
  • Can often meet premobilisation and other specific requirements necessary to get your team on site

Some TriSector Courses contain Units of Competency necessary to achieve licensing. TriSector is an approved training provider for a number of licences. We can assist you to obtain these licences. In some cases TriSector is authorised to undertake licence assessments on behalf of the regulator. In all cases additional fees and other requirements must be met.

Whilst many RTO’s won’t register some short courses, we register nationally recognised unit issued for every short course on the USI network. This ensures you have a dynamic reference for years to come.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

WHAT IS RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal and informal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit. The evidence provided for RPL must address the currency of competencies being assessed.

Credit Transfer is an arrangement to give a standard level of credit or formal recognition to a learner who has previously achieved competence in a training or educational environment.

Course credit is given if the student is able to provide evidence of previous study, experience or recognition of a competency currently held. The student will obtain exemption from enrolment of the module/unit or course/qualification. RPL for Entry is an arrangement where learners are provided access to assessment tools and processes to assist them to meet minimum entry requirements for access to a course or qualifications. No qualification is issued. Overseas Equivalence is an arrangement to give formal recognition to an individual who has completed a course or qualifications overseas.

RPL can apply to a wide range of skills, including those gained through employment, community involvement, informal training or life experience.

In order to recognise prior learning it is necessary to :

  • Compare the informal or non-formal learning the individual has achieved against the learning outcomes or performance criteria of the course or qualification for which the student is using as a basis for seeking entry or the award of credit
  • Determine appropriate evidence to support the claim of prior learning
  • If you are granted RPL for a particular module/unit, you do not need to complete the module/unit and an exemption (EX) or Credit Transfer (CT) is recorded on your academic transcript

THE RPL PROCESS

The RPL process consists of the following stages:

1. TriSector academic staff will assist you to enrol in the unit and give you information on how to make an enquiry regarding RPL.

2. Complete the RPL Application Form and submit it with $200 for each Module/Unit at least 2 weeks prior to commencement of term.

3. A TriSector Trainer trained in dealing with RPL applications will interview you to discuss the RPL process.

This could include:

  • Participation in exactly the same or modified versions of the assessment the student would be required to complete as part of the full course
  • Assessment based on a portfolio of evidence
  • Direct observation of demonstration of skill or competence
  • Reflective papers, journals or portfolios that relate past learning to the learning or competency outcomes of the current course or qualification
  • Provision of examples of the student's work drawn from the workplace, social, community or other setting in which the student applies their learning, skill or competence
  • Testimonials of learning, skill or competence
  • Combinations of any of the above

4. Organise additional interviews to discuss and assess your evidence.

5. Receive written notification of the outcome of your RPL application.
