Introduction

Enrolment in courses at The Moreland Group is completed prior to commencement and a non-refundable enrolment fee must be paid to secure your enrolment. You will be notified of enrolment details specific to your course upon receipt of your enrolment fee being paid. Students enrolling through their employer will usually form part of a bulk invoice to the employer contact.

The Moreland Group does not accept students who have not fulfilled all the enrolment requirements and paid prior to commencement of classes.

Pre-enrolment Information

The Moreland Group will ensure that prior to enrolment prospective students receive adequate information regarding the course, training, assessment and services provided by The Moreland Group to enable them to make an informed decision about the suitability of the course and the provider for their studies. All relevant course information and policies are made available on The Moreland Group website. At the time of enrolment students are asked if they have read the relevant policies so it is imperative that all students undertake this as part of the enrolment process.

Working with Children

The Moreland Group does not accept enrolments into qualifications or individual units of competency by anyone under the age of 18. The nature of the training delivered by The Moreland Group generally does not attract students under the age of 18.

Induction

At the commencement of all face to face training courses, the trainer begins by informing all participants of the requirements to train and assess. This includes information on course content and assessments as well as basic health and safety requirements that applies to the venue. Online students receive information about the training via the Learning Management System (LMS).

Training materials and assessment information are sent to students once their enrolment information has been received and the enrolment fee has been paid. Students receive a Welcome Letter which explains the expectations and contact details for support services.

For general administration queries the Training Manager should be contacted.

Assessment Methodology

All accredited training conducted by The Moreland Group requires an assessment that requires students to demonstrate competency.

If a student is deemed to have not satisfactorily met the assessment requirements after the first attempt they will be given some one-on-one advice /feedback by their assessor and then permitted a second attempt.

If after that attempt competence is still not achieved, a re-evaluation will take place which will include a discussion with an independent assessor, a review of the assessment outcome and then a decision about whether a third attempt may be made at the assessment with no further fees involved.

If at any stage a student feels that they are not being treated fairly in this process, an appeal can be lodged (see Appeals Policy). If a student wishes to request a review, a ‘Request for Review’ form must be completed and returned to the Training Manager. The form may be obtained by emailing the training manager at training@moreland-grp.com.au
