INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS
General Assessment Information
This information is designed to provide you with a full overview of the tasks you need to
successfully complete to be deemed competent in this unit.
You must achieve a satisfactory performance in each of the assessment tasks in order to be
deemed competent in the relevant unit. Where necessary, the assessment tasks are divided into
parts or steps. These are designed to take you through a step by step approach to completing the
activities.
Instructions
First and foremost, please contact your assessor to discuss any necessary adjustments that may
need to be made prior to completing these tasks. The instructions for each of the assessment
tasks are logically sequenced. If you have any questions, contact your assessor immediately. If
there is a practical component to your assessment, you will need to discuss the arrangements for
its completion with your assessor in advance.
Assessment Cover Sheet
Once you have completed all of the tasks, complete the Assessment Cover Sheet, sign the
declaration and forward along with your documentation to your assessor. It should be uploaded
along with the assessment on to the RTO manager.
Submitting Assessment Tasks
All written assessment tasks must be typed and submitted with the provided cover sheet.
Your trainer/assessor will tell you when assessments are due. It is your responsibility to ensure
that assessment tasks are submitted on or before their due date.
Extensions for individual assessment tasks may be negotiated with your trainer in specific
circumstances. You must request this prior to the due date, and extensions due to illness will
require a medical certificate. Extensions will be confirmed by your trainer/assessor.
Where assessment tasks are submitted following the conclusion of the unit of competency without
a medical certificate or extension, a late submission fee for each assessment task will be charged.
Assessment Outcomes
There are two outcomes of assessment tasks: S = Satisfactory and NS = Not Satisfactory (requires
more training and experience).
You will be awarded C = Competent on completion of the unit when you have achieved S for all
completed assessment tasks and by meeting all the performance criteria. If you fail to meet this
requirement, you will receive the result NYC = Not Yet Competent and will be eligible to be re-
assessed according to George Brown College policy.
If you are deemed Not Competent by your assessor and require re-assessment, you will be
informed of the process. A fee may be charged according to George Brown College policy.
If all assessment tasks are not completed for a qualification, a certificate will not be awarded. A
Statement of Attainment for completed units of competency will be provided.
Your Results
Your assessor is committed to providing you with detailed feedback on the outcomes of the
assessment and will provide guidance on areas for improvement. In most instances, you should
only need to complete the sections of the assessment that were deemed not satisfactory.

However, it is important to remember that depending on the task, it may be necessary to repeat the
whole task (for example presentations or the delivery of a training session).
You are entitled to view your results at any time by viewing them once they are uploaded on
RTOManager.
Reasonable Adjustment
George Brown College supports individual differences in the learning environment and provides
‘reasonable adjustment’ in training and assessment activities to support every learner. If you have
any special needs that make it difficult for you to complete your learning or assessments, you
should discuss this with your assessor beforehand and will be provided with reasonable
alternatives to assist you to complete the required tasks such as completing tests verbally or using
an interpreter.
What happens if you do not agree with the assessment result?
If you do not think the assessment process is valid, or disagree with the decision once it is made,
or believe that you have been treated unfairly, you can appeal. The first step is to discuss the
matter with your trainer.
If you still do not agree with the results, refer to the GBC Complaints and Appeals Policy and speak
to the Student Services Team.
Support
While we may not be in a position to assist you with language training or specific LLN training, our
assessors will work with you to ensure that you are supported throughout your qualification. If you
require individual tutoring this may attract an additional fee (see Student Handbook). Support may
be offered by your assessor, or for more specialist support you may need to contact GBC
administration.

your own. Information, ideas etc. quoted or paraphrased from another source such as the Internet,
must be acknowledged with “quotation marks” around the relevant words/sentences or ideas and
