Code of Pr​​actice

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Emmaus College has agreed to operate within the Principles and Standards of the Australian Quality Training Framework. This includes a commitment to recognise the training qualifications issued by other Registered Training Organisations. The school is registered to deliver a range of VET programs u​nder the direction of the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE). The mission of the school as an RTO is to deliver quality training and assessment across a range of selected industry areas in accordance with the National Training Packages.

Learning Exper​​iences

Each subject contains units of competency (modules) based on Competency Based Training (CBT), meaning it measures your ability to perform a specific task to a precise standard under specific conditions. These standards have been set by industry, and are set out in the VET Quality Framework (VQF). The College’s training and assessment practices are relevant to the needs of industry and informed by industry engagement.

​Each course will contain a variety of learning activities giving students the opportunity to progress according to individual learning styles. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities throughout the duration of the course to demonstrate competency. Students are encouraged to become actively involved in learning to ensure they are able to obtain and absorb the required knowledge and skills prior to assessment.

Structured Work P​​lacement

Some VET courses include compulsory structured work placement. Work placement may occur during school hours or out of school hours, for example after school or in school holidays. Please refer to individual course outlines for work placement requirements and contact the Futures Room if you have any questions.
