    Before you enrol with us, we want to make sure that you have been provided with sufficient, current and accurate information to make an informed decision about undertaking a course or commencing training with us. This information may be obtained from: 

    • This Participant Handbook which provides an overview of:
      • Our Training and Assessment arrangements including provisions for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer (CT); 
      • Fees, payment details and refund arrangements;
      • Complaints and Appeals processes; 
      • Support and guidance services; and 
      • Additional requirements regarding government funding subsidies 
    • Our website; and 
    • The course information guide and webpage for the specific course in which you propose to enrol. 

    Our staff are always available to answer any questions you might have if you need further clarification prior to enrolling in a course.

    Commencement of training - induction

    To ensure that you fully understand the options available to you and your rights and obligations, our induction process - undertaken when you complete your course enrolment - includes a discussion on the above information with one of our dedicated team members. Once your training commences we will ensure that we provide you with: 

    • any handouts specific to the course or training program you are enrolled in; and
    • access to the Student Portal, where you can access to your training records.
    Unique Student Identifier (USI)

    Since 1 January 2015, if you are undertaking nationally recognised training delivered by a RTO you will need to have a USI. Your USI account will contain all your nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards. 

    Allara Learning is unable to issue you with any nationally recognised VET qualification or statement of attainment without your USI. Please see our registration form for further details and instructions for the provisions of a USI.


    Assessment is a key component of the learning process. Completion of the assessment tasks is an important part of your course and/or training program as this provides an opportunity for you to apply, utilise, and demonstrate what you have learnt and also provides our Assessor with the opportunity to collect evidence on which to make a decision on your achievement of competence.

    The assessment method will depend on the course and/or training plan you are enrolled in. Your Course Information Handout provides you with information about the assessments found in your course.

    Fair and proper assessment

    All our assessors have the required qualifications and experience in your field of study. When our assessors conduct an assessment, they ensure that it complies with the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course. They also ensure it is conducted in accordance with the Principles of Assessment and the Rules of Evidence.

    ASQA, or the relevant State or Territory Training Authority, require us to retain your assessments so that they can audit us on the quality of our assessment processes. In accordance with our Privacy Policy, State and National Regulations and with our contracts, these are kept in a secure file. 

    For further details refer to our Training and assessment policy and procedure.  

    Right to appeal an assessment outcome

    If you are assessed as not yet competent, you can appeal against the type of assessment given, the way the assessment was conducted, or the decision made by the assessor. You will need to ensure that written advice of your appeal is received by Allara Learning no later than 14 days after a formal assessment has been made. This appeal will need to include:

    • The assessor’s name;
    • The competency against which the appeal is being lodged;
    • Specific reasons why you believe the original assessment outcome should be changed; and
    • Evidence to support the reason for the appeal.

    The appeal must be addressed in writing to the General Manager on a Complaints and Appeals Form available from an Allara Learning staff member or by downloading a copy from our website and sent to Allara Learning Learning Head Office (Address listing is on the last page). You may also present your case in person and in doing so, be accompanied by a support person.

    Participant obligations

    Appropriate behaviour 

    We are committed to provide a learning/ training environment which aims to ensure the health, safety and respect of all participants. To do so, we request that all participants ensure their behaviour is appropriate for the learning environment. This includes ensuring the learning environment is free from harassment, discrimination and bullying and that participants’ behaviour does not pose any Workplace Health and Safety risks to any persons. 

    Harassment and discrimination 

    Allara Learning is required under Australian law to ensure that it provides a workplace and learning environment that is free from all forms of harassment and discrimination (including victimisation and bullying) so that staff and participants feel valued, respected and are treated fairly. Allara Learning will ensure that all staff, contractors and participants understand their roles and responsibilities in creating such an environment, by a process of training, communication, mentoring and by example, and it will ensure all staff are aware of the processes and procedures for addressing any form of harassment or discrimination. 

    Sexual harassment 

    Sexual harassment is any unwanted, unwelcome or uninvited behaviour of a sexual nature, which makes a person feel humiliated, intimidated or offended. Sexual harassment can occur between men and women; women and other women; men and other men. Allara Learning is committed to ensuring that its work, teaching, learning and assessment environments are free from sexual harassment. Sexual harassment will not be tolerated under any circumstances, and disciplinary action will be taken against any participant who breaches this policy. Sexual harassment in education is illegal under the Anti-Discrimination Act NSW 1977 and the Sex Discrimination Act 1984. Some forms may constitute a criminal offence (e.g. indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking).

    Health & safety 

    Your health and safety while studying and training is our priority. We aim to provide a safe and healthy environment that minimises the risk of an accident. Therefore it is the responsibility of all participants to follow all safety rules, to report unsafe conditions and practices to your trainer and to learn and study in a way that maintains your safety and that of your fellow participants.

    Drugs and alcohol 

    Allara Learning provides a learning/ training environment which aims to ensure the health, safety, respect and productivity of all participants. The use of drugs and alcohol may impair an individual’s capacity to learn safely, efficiently and with respect for other participants. The use of such substances may result in the risk of injury or a threat to your wellbeing or that of other parties. Our policy is that no participant is to attend training programs while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Breaching this policy can result in removal from the course and/or training program. 

    Prescription drugs and medication 

    Nothing within our Drugs and Alcohol policy prohibits the use of prescription pharmaceuticals. You should check with your doctor that your prescription does not impair your study performance, or put you or others at risk.

    Training and assessment

    You are responsible for, and expected to ensure, that you:

    • Attend and actively participate in all learning and/or training sessions;
    • Complete the required assessments following our guidelines for presenting work for assessment;
    • Take responsibility for your own learning; 
    • Give your commitment to the training program; and
    • Communicate with your trainer should you require assistance.

    • You are ultimately responsible for learning and for implementing what you have learnt in your workplace.

    Plagiarism is defined as the use of someone else’s work without acknowledgement. Plagiarism is a form of cheating and cheating is an action which benefits no-one. It may result in either failure of the assessment/subject, or if it is a repeated offence, exclusion from the course and or training program. Plagiarism can include: 

    • Copying someone else’s assignment; • Using information which another participant has collected without acknowledging it; 
    • Copying from a textbook without using an appropriate form of referencing; and 
    • Using the ideas or research which you have found in a textbook without referencing, even if you have written those ideas or research findings into your own words.
    Work placement 

    For participants undertaking Work Experience Placements (WEP), including as part of a government subsidised program, the agreement you have signed includes the following important obligations: 

    • You must attend the WEP with the assigned workplace on the agreed dates and at the agreed times;
    • You must notify both the workplace supervisor and RTO work placement coordinator if you are unable to attend on any day/s;

    Consequences of breaching any of the behavioural obligations

    Disciplinary action, including termination of studies or removal from the course and or training program, may be taken against a Participant in the following circumstances:

    • Breach of the Drug and Alcohol conduct obligations; 
    • Sexual harassment of another participant or a staff member; 
    • Repeated Plagiarism; or
