WORK PLACEMENT

This course requires students completing a mandatory 120 work placement hours in an approved community based service. JSW is able to assist students by providing them with a list of providers within the community and will support the student in approaching the Service.

Trainer will provide the learner and workplace supervisor:

  • Structured learning plan that indicates the purpose of the work placement and the minimum requirements for training and assessment in the specified units of competency.
  • An overview of the training, monitoring and assessment roles and responsibilities of all parties,
  • Prior to attending work placement, a Capacity to Train document is completed with the host, to ensure that that the student has access to the relevant resources and equipment to fulfil the requirements of the qualification.

Work placement is designed to:

  • to strengthen the individual’s experience of the workplace to support future expectations of performance in the workforce
  • to develop practice skills and application of knowledge within the workplace, promoting stronger embedding of learning
  • to provide exposure to real workplace situations and circumstances which can’t be replicated in a learning environment or simulation.
  • work placement will also prepare individual candidates for their assessment experiences

The JSW Trainer conducts the observation assessments and liaises with the Workplace Supervisor to have the third party reports completed where applicable to individual units or to gain supplementary evidence in regards to a student’s competence.

  • Knowledge Questions

A work placement log book is used to provide supplementary evidence that the student has completed specific performance criteria in a workplace setting.

PREVIOUS STUDIES RECOGNITION

CREDIT TRANSFER

Do you already have a qualification, statements of attainment or academic statements for units completed at another Registered Training Organisation (RTO)? 

National recognition is all about recognising these previous studies.

Where units of competency have the same National code but were awarded by another RTO, JSW will recognise these to assist you in completing this qualification.  Simply present your original documentation during your interview.  Fees do not apply for recognition of credit transfers.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
