Assessment, Awards and Graduation

STUDENT ASSESSMENT

Students undertaking TAFE NSW courses have subjects assessed by either class mark and internal examination held in class time and/ or externally supervised examination. When you begin your studies you will be given detailed information about how you will be assessed and how your results will be recorded and reported. Details of dates and times of externally set examinations can be found on college notice boards prior to examination periods. Students who fail a subject on two occasions may be asked to justify their continued enrolment in the subject to the College Director, (or Learning Coordinator at Bradfield Senior College) continued enrolment in the subject. For further information concerning assessments contact the Head Teacher/Teacher of your section.

GRADUATION PRESENTATION

Most colleges host an awards ceremony to present certificates and awards to students who complete courses. These functions are generally held the year after course completion and students are advised by post of dates and times. (Bradfield Senior College's Awards Ceremony is held in December of the same year that certificates and awards are achieved).

NORTHERN SYDNEY INSTITUTE EXCELLENCE AWARDS

The Excellence Awards are a proud tradition of TAFE NSW ­ Northern Sydney Institute. These prestigious awards are presented annually to the most outstanding students in Northern Sydney Institute (NSI) during the previous academic year. This is an occasion when top graduates from a range of studies in all seven colleges join with family and friends, industry and government representatives, NSI teachers and staff to recognise their excellence and outstanding achievements. NSI Excellence Award winners are students who have been selected on their academic achievement in TAFE NSW and further studies, demonstrated leadership qualities such as group learning skills and/or community involvement and industry service, and whose attitude to learning and career aspirations are exceptional.

FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:

EXCEPTION TO FULL-TIME STUDY AND REPEAT OF UNITS. Part-time study is permitted where, to complete a course, a student needs to repeat one or more failed units. This is interpreted as applicable to the last semester of a student's course, where extra units are being taken to complete the course i.e. usually units which have been failed previously. In these circumstances the units may be repeated only once. A student may repeat a unit of study more than once only if enrolled in a full-time load. Part-time enrolment in order to repeat a unit mid course is not permitted.

Final Examinations Information

Final Examinations for category A and B examinations are conducted outside normal class time and each examinable subject is scheduled at the same time and date throughout New South Wales. Students should be familiar with their rights and responsibilities in relation to these examinations. 1. At enrolment (or shortly after) 1.1 You will be advised by your teacher during your first class of the assessment method used for each subject. This will identify your subjects which have a Final Examination. 1.2 If you have a permanent or temporary disability which may affect your ability to sit an examination, or finish it in the required time, contact the College Disabilities Coordinators, who will determine if you qualify for special concessions (e.g. a modified examination). If the nature and/or degree of the disability changes after the granting of a concession, the College Director must be informed BEFORE the examination. 1.3 All examinations' answers must be written in English unless otherwise directed in the question paper. If you believe that you need to use an approved bilingual dictionary during an examination check the College notice board (or look in the Student Assessment Guide given out in the first lesson) for the particular examination you are sitting. If a bilingual dictionary is permissible you may take one into the examination room without seeking written approval. There should be no handwritten notes on the dictionary, although underlining and highlighting is permitted. 1.4 The information on the notice board (and in the Student Assessment Guide given out in the first lesson) will state whether calculators can be used and whether these can be programmable or must be non-programmable. 1.5 You are responsible for checking College notice boards for the examination timetable dates and times. The room allocations will be shown on the notice boards, just prior to the scheduled examination dates. 1.6 If you have two examinations scheduled for the same time and date, give WRITTEN notification to the College Director of your College, who will arrange for you to sit one of the examinations earlier, or later, in the day. (Please give reasonable notice to ensure there is sufficient time for these arrangements to be made). You will be supervised during breaks between the two examinations.

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION

Discrimination means treating someone differently because they happen to belong to a particular group of people. Many types of discrimination are against the law. It is unlawful to discriminate against people on the grounds of: who you are related to or who you associate with, age, carers' responsibilities (caring for or supporting a child or other immediate family member), disability, homosexuality (gay or lesbian or someone thinks you are gay or lesbian), marital status, race (including colour, ethnic or ethnoreligious background, descent or nationality), sex (including sexual harassment or pregnancy) and transgender. It is against the law to incite vilification on the grounds of race, homosexuality, HIV/AIDS or transgender. If you feel you have been discriminated against at TAFE NSW, see your teacher, head teacher or campus manager. You could also talk to a TAFE NSW Counsellor, Institute Multicultural Education Coordinator, Aboriginal coordinator or harassment contact officer. If your complaint is still not resolved you can seek advice from the Anti-Discrimination Board on (02) 9268 5555, or 1800 670 812 (toll free ­ NSW only), TTY (02) 9268 5522 or fax (02) 9268 5500. www.lawlink.nsw.gov.au/adb

MANAGEMENT OF RISK OF HARM TO STUDENTS AND STAFF

TAFE NSW is required by law to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and visitors on our premises. In order to meet these legal obligations it is necessary for us to assess and manage any known risk of violent behaviour. If you have a history of violence that may suggest that you could pose a potential risk of any type to TAFE students, staff and/or visitors it is a condition of your enrolment to advise the College Manager, a TAFE Counsellor or your Head Teacher prior to attending your first class. For these purposes `violence' is not restricted to physical acts. It includes any behaviour in the last ten years that seriously interferes with the physical or psychological safety and well being of others such as: · actualviolencetoanyperson · possessionoforuseofaweaponoranyitemwiththe intention to cause harm or injury to others · threatsofviolenceorintimidationofothers · suspensionorexpulsionfromanyschooloreducational institution for violent or aggressive behaviour. TAFE NSW is committed to offering vocational education and training to the entire community. Following your advice of a potential risk, we will carry out an assessment of the risk and, if necessary, provide support and a management plan. Only in exceptional circumstances will a risk assessment lead to exclusion from enrolment. It is our aim to provide an appropriate, safe environment to suit every student's needs and maximise your success in your studies. TAFE NSW ­ NSI Student Guide 2011

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

TAFE NSW has a duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all employees, students and visitors at TAFE NSW. At enrolment you will be informed of any course requirement that you provide and wear protective clothing and equipment. During an orientation session on your first attendance you will be given information on what to do in case of an emergency or if you are injured and require first aid. All of our courses include instruction and training on occupational health and safety relevant to your training. To help us provide a safe environment for all staff and students, occupational health and safety legislation also reinforces your duty to take reasonable care for the health and safety of others. You must not interfere with or misuse anything provided for you in the interest of health and safety. You should report any safety issues or concerns to your teacher or campus staff as soon as possible. For further information about occupational health and safety visit a TAFE NSW Library, ask your teacher, or visit the WorkCover Authority website: www.workcover.nsw.gov.au

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Certain courses require the wearing of a uniform and/or protective clothing during classes. Clothing must be purchased by the student and entry to the class will be refused unless specified protective clothing/uniform is worn. Information as to requirements in this area will be given at the time of enrolment.

PROTECTION OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

In line with NSW Government legislation TAFE NSW is committed to promoting the safety, welfare and well-being of children and young people (defined legally as people under 18 years of age) whether they are students, apprentices or trainees in schools, colleges, workplaces or programs conducted by TAFE NSW or under the auspices of TAFE NSW.
