Active participation It is a condition of enrolment that you actively participate in your studies. Active participation is completing all the assessment tasks on time. Plagiarism Plagiarism is taking and using someone else's thoughts, writings or inventions and representing them as your own. Plagiarism is a serious act and may result in a learner’s exclusion from a course. When you have any doubts about including the work of other authors in your assessment, please consult your trainer/assessor. The following list outlines some of the activities for which a learner can be accused of plagiarism: Presenting any work by another individual as one's own unintentionally Handing in assessments markedly similar to or copied from another learner Presenting the work of another individual or group as their own work Handing in assessments without the adequate acknowledgement of sources used, including assessments taken totally or in part from the internet. 4 | P a g e

If it is identified that you have plagiarised within your assessment, then a meeting will be organised to discuss this with you, and further action may be taken accordingly. Collusion Collusion is the presentation by a learner of an assignment as their own that is, in fact, the result in whole or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more learners in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and, as such, both parties are subject to disciplinary action. Collusion or copying from other learners is not permitted and will result in a Not Competent outcome. Assessments must be typed using document software such as (or similar to) MS Office. Handwritten assessments will not be accepted (unless, prior written confirmation is provided by the trainer/assessor). Competency outcome There are two outcomes of assessments: S = Satisfactory and NS = Not Satisfactory (requires more training and experience). Once the learner has satisfactorily completed all the tasks for this module the learner will be awarded “Competent” (C) or “Not Competent” (NC) for the relevant unit of competency. If you are deemed “Not Competent” you will be provided with feedback from your assessor and will be given another chance to resubmit your assessment task(s). If you are still deemed as “Not Competent” you will be required to re-enrol in the unit of competency. Assessment appeals process If you feel that you have been unfairly treated during your assessment, and you are not happy with your assessment and/or the outcome as a result of that treatment, you have the right to lodge an appeal. You must first discuss the issue with your trainer/assessor. If you would like to proceed further with the request after discussions with your trainer/assessor, you need to lodge your appeal to the Academic Manager, in writing, outlining the reason(s) for the appeal.
