Students with special needs are students with disabilities, health related conditions or learning difficulties. The term disability encompasses children with an intellectual disability, physical disability, vision impairment, hearing impairment, language disorder, mental health condition or autism. Some student’s might have specific learning needs which could include ESL learners with varying levels of language, literacy and conceptual understanding.
Should you require additional support during the program, please advise your Trainer who will refer you to an appropriate support service. For assistance with improvement of reading and/or writing, we can assist you in sourcing an appropriate external support organisation such as the Reading, Writing Hotline on 1300 655 506. We will endeavour to provide welfare and guidance to all learners wherever possible. This may include:
If a student has a problem with any unit of competency or course, they should feel free to discuss their concerns with either the trainer and assessor or ourAdministration Staff. If the support needs extend to a need for counselling the learner will be referred to an appropriate external support agency.
Any fees associated with these services will be at the expense of the trainee and explained in detail at the time of referral.
