Credit Transfer Policy

PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is to ensure Australian Institute of Workplace Learning Pty Ltd (AIWL) appropriately recognises credit transfer applied for by students and has a process for the granting and recording of credit transfer.

It also ensures AIWL has a way of providing a record of the credit transfer to the student and ensures it is signed or otherwise accepted by the student and placed on the student's file.

Definitions:

Credit Transfer is a process that provides credit for a unit of competency previously achieved.

 Justice of Peace is defined as a person authorised to witness oaths or affidavits, take statutory declarations and affirmations, witness signatures, attest the execution of a document and certify a true copy of an original document.

POLICY

Under this policy, AIWL will provide applicants with the opportunity to apply for credit prior to enrolment, or the initial period of enrolment; which is considered no later than 3 months after enrolment.

AIWL will recognise AQF qualifications and VET statements of attainment issued by any other RTO.

AIWL will grant credit to applicants that meet the respective criteria and provide them with the result of the assessment and feedback.

Students  who  have  completed  a  qualification  or  units of  competencies  of  a qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework may apply under this process to have them recognised for credit.

In the situation that AIWL grants the student credit transfer which leads to a shortening of the student’s course:

a)      Students who are receiving benefits based on full time or part time study are responsible of notifying Centrelink of changes to their course duration.
