Cathy McGill, Training Manager

Meet Cathy McGill, Training Manager

‘By the time our students leave us, they’re ready to take on the world.’

My hugely satisfying career in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector began around twenty-five years ago.

I’ve lectured in Laboratory skills (Microbiology and Histology) and OH & S, managed international students, overseen VET in Schools programmes and managed TAFE’s commercial business.

But mentoring students and watching them grow is my most rewarding experience. I love that our culture and professionalism allow our students to gain qualifications, grow personally and believe in themselves.

Studying at JSW

Training to match and meet your goals. Start from where you are. Get where you want to go.

Here are the what’s, why’s, and how’s to help you settle, get stuck in, and make your training a big success.

Three top reasons to keep your contact and concession card details up to date

Changed your email, phone number, or home address?
Updated your concession card?

Let us know, so you can be sure you get:

  • The latest course information – assessment reminders, excursion info, great resources, special events, we'd hate you to miss out or get left behind
  • Your certificate – we'd hate to send it to your old address and have to charge you a replacement fee.
  • Fee reductions for eligible students who can produce a current concession card.
    NOTE: If you can't provide a current concession card, we will need to charge you full fees.

Email contact updates to courseinfo@jsw.org.au

- - - - - -

What to do if you're going to be absent or late or you need to leave early

Please contact your Trainer before your class is due to start. A text message, a phone call or an email are all fine.

- - - - - -

Getting organised to study at JSW

To help you get off to a flying start, your Trainer will make sure you have copies of:

  • All your course information, including core and elective units of competency
  • A Student Study Plan setting out assessment dates and other milestones on the way to graduation
    NOTE: You must email any assessment extension requests to your Trainer before the due date on your Student Study Plan.

Not submitting assessments by due dates without an official exemption puts your place in the course at serious risk

Don't hesitate to ask your Trainer any question whatsoever about the content or organisation of your course.

- - - - - -

Understanding and paying your fees

When you enrol, your Trainer will explain your fees and give you a copy of the Fees and Charges Form, which you’ll complete during your enrolment.

If you have a concession card entitling you to reduced fees, JSW will need to note it. You'll also need to let us know if you update your card.

Unless you make a different arrangement with us, JSW will invoice you as you complete the units in your qualification.

We'll issue your certificate when you've completed your studies and paid all your course fees.

Have a question about fees and charges? email courseinfo@jsw.org.au

- - - - - -

What to do if you need to withdraw from your course

  1. Check the census date for each unit you need to withdraw from.
    NOTE: You must withdraw officially before or on the census date to avoid having to pay all outstanding course fees.
    You'll find the census dates on your Statement of Fees.
  1. Fill out and submit the Withdrawal Form

- - - - - -

How to give us feedback

We value your honest opinion of how we did.

Getting better by acting on what you tell us is one of the secrets of JSW's long and successful life as an innovative training organisation.

You can complete our online satisfaction form anytime.

We'll also ask you to complete a student survey towards the end of your course.

How to submit your assessments

  1. Make a digital or print copy for your records
  2. Complete and sign a copy of the Student Assessment Cover Sheet
    NOTE: Your Trainer will give you a print copy or upload one to your Learning Management System (LMS)
  3. Email your assessment to the address given to you by your Trainer.
    NOTE: You'll receive a receipt via return email

- - - - - -

How to reference your assessments

Referring to other people's work and ideas is perfectly fine, BUT you must acknowledge this clearly.

It is also fine to use AI (ChatGPT) to help with research and organising your ideas. But You must also acknowledge ChatGPT as a reference.

Here's a guide to doing that.

Copying someone else's work and passing it off as your own or failing to reference your sources correctly is plagiarism.

NOTE: Your Trainers can pick plagiarism at 50 paces, so don't even bother trying to fool them.

Plagiarised assessments get an automatic 'Not Competent,' you'll need to resubmit an original, correctly referenced, compliant task. Submitting a second plagiarised assessment puts your place in the course at risk.

4 Panic-proofing ways we help you prepare for assessments

Assessments are NOT designed to trick you or trip you up. They're simply your chance to show your smarts.

Everyone at JSW wants you to succeed, and your Trainers will do everything they can to help you. They'll make sure that you have:

  1. Loads of time to learn and practice your assessable skills and knowledge before you're asked to demonstrate them for assessment
  2. A chance or two to do 'trial runs' to get to grips with exactly what's asked of you in an assessment
  3. Kind, clear, expert help to plug any gaps in your skills for handling studying in general and acing your assessments. This support can include getting your English language and maths skills up to speed to meet the standards set for your course.
  4. Clear, comprehensive positive feedback on all your assessment results, including oodles of tips and examples of how you might do things differently and better.

What happens if you break our rules?

First, we'll let you know you've acted outside our boundaries to keep everyone safe and create a positive learning environment. You'll get the chance to discuss what happened and why.

What happens next depends on the seriousness of the impact and consequences of your first rules breach on our students and staff.

While you may be excluded from your course for a serious first breach, you’ll usually receive either a verbal or a written warning or sometimes both.

We'll also work with you on dealing with whatever's driving your behaviour.

If we can't resolve the issues triggering subsequent difficult or dangerous behaviour, you will very likely lose your place with us.
