Course Management and Assessment

Students will have access to ‘Alpha’. Within this program, students will initially engage with the program by undertaking modules or cards. The system is designed for those already employed in industry or are about to be employed. Activities undertaken directly via Alpha, will be recorded within the system. For those students seeking placement, we recommend ‘InPlace’ described below.

Students will also have access to ‘In-Place (opens in a new window)' Within this package, students will be able to register their host employer-of-choice for approval by the University. Once approved, the University will enter into an agreement with the host employer to ensure student’s safety and care whilst undergoing work experience. Students will also have access to a ‘Logbook’ featured within the same ‘In Place’ system to record their work experience and employer feedback.


For the student to be awarded a Certificate of Practice, the following criteria must be met.

  • 1200 hours/points evidenced by the electronic log
  • Completion of the mandatory Transferable Skills modules
  • Completion of modules for Discipline and Practice Skills
  • Self-evaluation and reflection report or alternatively a 3 minute video.
