  • What learner support assistance is in place?

     

    As Evac You Eight runs short courses, we don’t have extensive support services for our trainees. But, we want our trainees to succeed in their learning. If trainees are having difficulties, our trainers and assessors can provide the following types of learner support assistance:

    a.  Explanations of parts of the learning that have not been understood

    b.  Flexibility in delivering of training in terms of timing (dependant on the employers needs)

    c.  Extra time on practicals and testing as appropriate

    d.  Individual or group coaching of trainee, subject to agreement by the employer

    e.  Repeat of classes, subject to approval by employer

     

    We are mindful of the diversity of people in our classes and cater for this in our teaching and testing methods.

     

    Trainees are encouraged to discuss any problems or issues they may have in learning. The trainer will try to identify together with the trainee what issues the trainee may face in learning. Trainees are encouraged to ask questions relevant to the Training Course.

    We do not offer guidance or welfare advice given the length of our course.

     

  • Does Evac You Eight offer Equal Opportunity?

     

    All Clients and Trainees are entitled to, and will be given equal consideration and treated with equal respect. Evac You Eight will in no way discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual preference, belief or age.

     

    Further, Evac You Eight will monitor the composition of its team structure and the training environment, and if necessary shall undertake action to ensure that the learning environment adheres to this  policy.

     

  • How do I make a complaint if I am dissatisfied with the course or service?

     

    Steps to follow if Client or Trainee has a Complaint or Grievance.

    Evac You Eight is client focused so desire to utilise any such instances as an opportunity to improve our service.

     

    Step 1 - Talk to the person/s involved:  In the first instance the complaint should be discussed with the relevant member of staff or Manager – Training & Operations.

     

    Step 2 - Written Complaint:  If not satisfied, a complaints form must be submitted to the Director. This form can be requested via our Head Office, Trainers and Assessors have print copies available if necessary.

     

    Step 3 - A Meeting or Phone Conference:  Details of any meetings with the person making the complaint shall be minuted.

     

    Step 4 - If still unresolved:  If agreement still cannot be reached and the person making the      complaint wishes to pursue the matter it can be taken to the Department of Fair Trading or           reported to ASQA.

     

    RTO Regulators Role: The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) is the national regulator for Australia’s vocational education and training sector, it regulates courses and training providers to ensure nationally approved quality standards are met. It is not ASQA’s role to arbitrate between aggrieved parties, so they will not handle a specific complaint that has not gone through our        internal processes. But ASQA does investigate complaints in order to manage the risk of training providers not complying with their legislative obligations. See their website for more information.

     

    Complaints and Appeals Form

    ____________________________________

     

    Steps to follow in an Assessment Appeal

    Step 1 - Talk to your Trainer:  For testing and assessments, if the Trainee appeals the results, The Trainer will immediately discuss the outcome to resolve the difference and reach agreement.

     

    Step 2 - Re-marking or re-assessment:  If agreement cannot be reached, the Trainee has the right to be assessed again by the same Trainer, or may request that another Trainer undertakes the assessment.

     

    Step 3 - Written Appeal:  If agreement is still not reached, an appeals form must be submitted.

    Then the Trainee and Manager – Training & Operations or Director or nominee shall meet to discuss the assessment.

    Details of the meeting shall be minuted and the Trainee informed.

    Step 4 - Going External:  If agreement still cannot be reached and the Trainee wishes to make a formal appeal, then this appeal must be heard by an independent person or panel if resolution cannot be reached first.

     

    RTO Regulators Role: It is not ASQA’s role to arbitrate between aggrieved parties so they will not handle a specific complaint or an assessment appeal that has not gone through our internal        processes. See their website for more information.
