    Reasonable Adjustment

    There may be times and situations in which a student may require ‘reasonable adjustment’ of the training and assessment methods implemented by the RTO to meet their specific individual needs. These individual student needs may include (but not limited to):

    • Disability
    • Temporary or permanent injury (i.e. back injury, broken leg/arm)
    • Sight or hearing impairments

    Reasonable adjustments to the way in which evidence of performance is gathered (e.g. in terms of the information to be provided to the candidate and the type of evidence to be collected from the candidate) can only occur where the adjustments do not alter the expected performance standards for learning and assessment.

    The reasonable adjustments to the training and assessment process may include a variety of modifications to the methods of delivery and assessment to assist the student to undertake the course. The adjustments may include actions such as:

    • assistance in the form of the training location to allow easier access
    • accessing relevant equipment or aids to assist the student
    • adjustments to the assessment methods to cater for any special needs (without effecting the integrity of the outcome)

    Where a student requests or is identified as requiring reasonable adjustment to the training and assessment process a detailed training and assessment plan including timetables, notes regarding the required adjustments, and any related communications regarding the adjustments must be maintained in the students file.
