Reasonable adjustments and special learning needs:

Disadvantages may be based, for example, upon age, cultural background, physical disability, limited or non-current industry experience, language, numeracy or digital literacy issues.
Where pre-training interviews and LLN assessments reveal that a student may require special support or where, after enrolment, it is made apparent that the student requires special support, reasonable adjustments will be made to the learning environment, training delivery, learning resources and/or assessment tasks to accommodate the particular needs of the student. An adjustment is reasonable if it can accommodate the student’s particular needs, while also taking into account factors such as the student’s views, the potential effect of the adjustment on the student and others and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.
Any adjustments made must:
• be discussed, agreed and documented in the assessment record
• benefit the student
• maintain the integrity of the competency standards and course requirements as stipulated in the training package
• be reasonable to expect in a workplace.
Reasonable adjustment may consist of:
• providing additional time for students to complete learning and assessment tasks
• presenting questions orally for students with literacy issues
• asking questions in a relevant practical context
• using large print material
• extending the course duration
• Presenting work instructions in diagrammatic or pictorial form instead of words and sentences.
Complaints and appeals:
If you are dissatisfied with an assessment outcome, you may appeal the assessment decision. In the first instance, you are encouraged to appeal informally by contacting the assessor and discussing the matter with them. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of such discussion, you may appeal further to training manager. If you are still dissatisfied, you may appeal formally and in writing to have the result reviewed. For more information, refer to the Assessment Policy and the Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures available in Technical Education Development Institute Website.
