ThinkPoint offer flexible delivery options in Education and Training and will work with students to compose programs to suit individual needs and commitmentsRTO Code: 40985
The aim of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills required by workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to a variety of reasons.
A blended delivery mode is employed including workplace delivery and face to face training that takes place in the Thinkpoint training facility. Clients also undertake independent study during the course. Some units of competency have common content so we therefore adopt a ‘clustered’ approach to delivery where units are delivered in conjunction with others.
Workplace delivery is a methodology used to develop students’ knowledge and skills. i.e. students learn on the job and practice applying knowledge and skills when completing workplace tasks.
The following techniques are employed during face to face delivery depending on the subject matter: power point presentations, individual tasks, case studies, research, role plays, practical demonstrations and group work.
During non-contact time clients will be provided with text books to develop knowledge and understanding. This includes a mixture of theoretical information and tasks. Learning resources include sufficient information for the clients to learn the topic, undertake practice activities and complete tasks. Clients will be supported by their trainers outside of class contact time.
Clients will be provided opportunities for formative assessment during delivery. Trainers provide feedback to clients on areas for improvements to facilitate the development of appropriate knowledge and skills and prepare them for summative assessment.
Students who successfully complete this course may progress onto CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support or other relevant support courses.
Clients will undertake assessment at Thinkpoint’s facility, at their workplace and in their own time. ThinkPoint’s Assessors will conduct all assessment activities. Assessment methods include a combination of written tests, projects, reports, portfolios and practical demonstration of skills.
Some units of competency have common content so we therefore adopt a ‘clustered’ approach to assessment where units are assessed in conjunction with others.
Each unit of competency assessment includes assessment methods in accordance with unit of competency guidelines. Clients will undertake assessments to demonstrate competence against the assessment criteria in each unit. Clients will attempt each assessment in turn until competency is demonstrated against all unit requirements.
All clients are provided with the opportunity to have their prior learning and experience assessed and gain recognition for this. Clients who have successfully completed whole units of competency with a Australian registered Training Organisation that are identical to any of those contained within this course can apply for Credit Transfer.
