The Assessment Process is based on the principles of competency-based training. Assessment for each unit of competency will be through a combination of classroom-based and work-placement tasks. Classroom-based assessments include but are not limited to:
Work placement arrangements with a work placement contract, logbook, work evidence, and assessment of tasks completed at the workplace through evidence, third-party evidence, and/or observation.
An application can be made for RPL when the learner believes that they have already attained the necessary skills and competencies elsewhere (work, other study etc.). The RPL policy, procedure and application form is available from the reception upon request or on the college website (https://kcbt.edu.au/students/forms/).
Learners will be required to provide evidence to support their application. The application will be processed and assessed in accordance with the KCBT RPL and recognition Policy and Procedure. Assessment includes a challenge test of skill demonstration in a simulated or real work environment.
Learners, who can demonstrate they already hold any of the Units of Competency specified above, may be eligible to receive a credit transfer for those units. They will need to submit a verified Certificate or Statement of Attainment issued by a RTO for recognition purposes.
Please complete RPL or Credit Transfer or Exemption Form (https://kcbt.edu.au/students/forms/) and attach detailed evidence of your relevant experience / study, completed academic transcripts and official unit description(s) to your application.
Learners who are awarded a credit transfer will be exempted from completing those units at KCBT and this will be recorded on the system as a variation.
