Accidents and First Aid

Should an accident occur, it is to be reported immediately to your Trainer/Assessor and the details will be recorded on an Accident Report Form and signed by both the Trainer/Assessor and the student.

 

Appeals

Students have the right of appeal of assessment judgement decisions. Please see the section Complaints and Appeals.

Assessment

In accordance with the NVR Standards for RTOs, First Aid Action assessment processes will be valid, reliable, flexible and fair. Judgements to determine competence will be made by examining evidence gathered from a range of sources, using a variety of assessment methods and will meet the Rules of Evidence (ie. valid, authentic, current and sufficient). Clear information about the assessment process and evidence requirements will be provided and students will be encouraged to participate in collecting evidence of their own competence. Assessment processes will provide for the recognition of competence no matter how, where or when it has been acquired.

 

Qualified Trainers/Assessors

A qualified Trainer/Assessor is a person who is recognised by First Aid Action as meeting the national standards for NVR RTOs. A Trainer/Assessor is able to provide training and assessment only in competencies in which they have relevant vocational competencies. They must also be competent in the training and assessment competencies to the national standards required, be current in industry and training and assessment and undertake professional development.

 

Assessment Process

The assessment process for each unit of competency will combine the skills and knowledge being assessed in practical applications. It is the responsibility of the Trainer/Assessor to ensure that the Student is given every opportunity to demonstrate that they can meet the required performance standards. The assessment process your Trainer/Assessor uses must conform to the following principles:

 

Validity

Valid assessment actually assesses the competency it is meant to assess. A valid assessment of a particular unit will assess competencies that are part of that unit

  • Evidence is collected from activities and tasks that clearly relate to the unit of competency.
  • Evidence demonstrates that the performance criteria have been met.
  • Evidence is sufficient.

 

Reliability

Reliable assessment produces the same judgment about a person’s competency when the assessment is completed by another assessor or by the same assessor or another occasion:

  • Assessment practices should be monitored and reviewed to ensure that there is consistency in the interpretation of the evidence.
  • Assessors must be competent in the national Assessor Competency Standards.

 

Fairness

Assessment is fair if it does not disadvantage any applicant in relation to another:

  • Assessment practices and methods must be equitable to all groups of applicants.
  • Assessment processes and criteria for determining performance must be made clear to all applicants seeking assessment.
  • Applicants must be provided with opportunity to challenge the assessment.

 

Flexibility

Flexible assessment remains valid, reliable and fair while dealing with:

  • The way the competency was developed or acquired through a formal training course or through on-the-job experience.
  • Any disability that the applicant might have, e.g. deafness or reading difficulties
  • The equipment used to demonstrate competence, e.g. the familiarity of the equipment to the student
  • Different periods over which the assessment might be done; eg. the need to apply the entire assessment at one time or parts of the assessment as a person learns. This would most likely result in the student being assessed in individual learning outcomes or the elements that make up the competency.

 

RPL

Definition:

  • Recognition of Prior Learning is an evidentiary process that matches the outcomes students have achieved through unrecognised learning and/or life/work experience against the outcomes of the specific competencies
  • Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements on a student’s achievement of the performance requirements set out in a competency standard
  • Recognised learning includes achievement of nationally endorsed competency standards or accredited course evidenced by a qualification or Statement of Attainment
  • Unrecognised learning includes programs that do not lead to achieving nationally endorsed competency standards or accredited course outcomes (eg. Statement of Attendance, workplace mentor program etc)

Benefits of RPL:

RPL creates flexibility in a system that previously discounted or ignored some forms of qualifications and informally gained skills. Benefits stemming from the use of RPL for employees and employers:

  • Reduces unnecessary time spent in re-learning competencies already held. Thus, prevents costly retraining
  • Enables credit towards qualifications
  • Creates opportunity to access education, training and employment opportunities for the individual
  • Provides an indication of any gaps in skills and knowledge of employees

The Assessment Process:

  • The Trainer/Assessor is responsible for determining the extent of RPL and applying the process
  • Students should apply directly to a First Aid Action Trainer/Assessor for RPL, and discuss with the Trainer/Assessor the best or most appropriate means of demonstrating competence

 

RPL Enrolment

For RPL/RCC a normal enrolment is required when you will receive the First Aid Action Student Information Booklet and detailed information relating to the process of RPL including the RPL Application Form (Form 2.1).

 

National Recognition

Competencies achieved and detailed in Statements of Attainments or qualifications issued by other Registered Training Organisations will be recognised by First Aid Action.

 

Language, Literacy and Numeracy

Students may be required to complete a short language, literacy and numeracy questionnaire prior to enrolment. The questionnaire is designed to identify students who may find it difficult to achieve the outcomes of the course in the scheduled timeframe. Where a student has been identified with potential support needs, the Trainer/Assessor will discuss how best we can provide support to the Student to ensure success. This may simply be asking verbal questions rather than using a written test.

 

Support Services Information

Support services, welfare and guidance information for all students is available; please see the Support Services Reference Guide.

 

Confidentiality Policy

Students can be assured that personal information provided to First Aid Action will be given maximum protection and made available only to authorised users such as employers where a contract (eg. Training Contract) exists, or to government agencies to meet government reporting requirements, for research, audit, moderation and evaluation purposes. If a student wishes to access personal information held at First Aid Action, a request should be made to the office.

 

Copyright

The law requires copyright loyalty payments for the reproduction of a considerable amount of publishable material, notably books.

For study and research purposes, Students are allowed to copy 10% or one chapter of a book or one article per issue of a journal. More extensive reproduction may be possible, and permission must be sought.

 

Discrimination and Harassment

First Aid Action aims to provide an environment free from discrimination and harassment for both Students and staff. Discrimination and harassment come in many forms and may relate to gender, age race, religion, sexual preference or disability. Contact the Manager who can provide confidential support and information about options to deal with such situations.

 

Discipline/Student Conduct

Students are expected to behave in a manner which is courteous, safe and not disruptive within training and assessment activities conducted by First Aid Action. The following are examples of unacceptable behaviour or actions:

* Any misuse, legal or illegal, of any vehicles or property of First Aid Action;

*Any unsafe or illegal practice;

*The possession of alcohol or prohibited drugs;

*The conduct of business for private gain;

* Dishonesty in training and assessment activities;

* Damage of equipment;

*Obstructive behaviour;

*Disorderly, disruptive or harassing behaviour;

* Non-payment of fee requirements

*Discrimination towards any other person

*Non-declaration of a pre-existing medical, mental or physical condition which may be accelerated or increased due to training or assessment

Gross misconduct may result in suspensions or expulsion from First Aid Action training and assessment programs.

 

Entry Requirements

First Aid Action provides a range of training programs with varying entry requirements. Specific details are included in the section Courses Offered.

 

Flexible Delivery

Flexible delivery means that a range of learning strategies is available in a variety of learning environments and/or scheduling. Training is adjusted to suit individual learning styles, interests and training needs, with an aim of enhancing accessibility to education/training.

 

Reasonable adjustment explained

Reasonable adjustment refers to flexibility in assessment approaches to account for individual learning needs, while still adhering to the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course. Whilst reasonable adjustments can be made in terms of the way in which evidence of performance is gathered, the evidence criteria for making competent/not yet competent decisions should not be altered in any way. If a student meets essential entry requirements, the RTO must endeavour to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary for them to complete their course work or demonstrate competency. This may include adjusting the physical environment, student learning materials or the manner that a theory test is completed. In most situations, a student with a disability will be able to tell the RTO what he or she needs to be able to study. If necessary, the RTO should also seek advice from disability areas within government departments or organisations that represent or provide services to people with a disability.

Adjustments may include:

·         Modifying educational premises. For example, making ramps, modifying toilets and ensuring that classes are in rooms accessible to the person with a disability.

·         Modifying or providing equipment. For example, lowering lab benches, enlarging computer screens, providing specific computer software or an audio loop system.

·         Changing assessment procedures. For example, allowing for alternative examination methods such as oral exams, or allowing additional time for someone else to write an exam for a person with a disability.

·         Changing course delivery. For example, providing study notes or research materials in different formats or providing a sign language interpreter for a person who is hearing impaired.

Please note that in some Training Packages, first aid and CPR training for example, there are mandatory skills that cannot be modified as a reasonable adjustment. The student is required to complete 2 minutes of adult CPR on a manikin on the floor. There is no room for reasonable adjustment (eg. using the manikin on a table for those with knee or back problems) if the unit of competency specifies it is done on the floor.

 

Complaints and Appeals

When a person wishes to lodge a formal complaint or appeal an assessment decision, the complaints and appeals process must be followed:

Complaints and Appeals Process

*       discuss the complaint or appeal with the Trainer or Assessor

*       If the complaint or appeal is not addressed to the satisfaction of the student, the student is advised to complete a Complaints and Appeals Statement (below)

*       the Course Coordinator or Management is to evaluate the Complaints and Appeals Statement, conduct enquiry where necessary, provide an opportunity to the student to present their case (with the provision of a support person in attendance) and address the complaint or appeal

*       If the complaint or appeal is not addressed to the satisfaction of the student, it is to be referred to an external source

 

Work Health and Safety

The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 applies to all staff and students of First Aid Action. All employees, including students, have a primary responsibility to ensure that they work safely, without risk of injury to themselves, fellow workers/students and others in the workplace or public. Students are required to follow the instructions of the Trainer/Assessor whilst in training.
