How to Lodge Assessments
Recognition of Prior Learning/Credit Transfer instructions
All students are entitled to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and/or Credit Transfer (CT). Please ask for a copy of the h&h RPL/CT Application Forms from front reception should this apply to you.
RPL is a process that assesses an individual’s non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual has achieved the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards for entry to, and/or partial or total completion of, a qualification.
CT assesses the initial qualification or unit that an individual is using to claim access to, or the award of credit in, a destination course. The assessment determines the extent to which the client’s initial qualification or unit is equivalent to the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards in a qualification.
Please note that h&h recognises AQF qualifications and Statements of Attainments issued by other Registered Training Organisation (RTO). h&h will apply the Credit Transfers to your qualification once verification has been provided from the previous RTO.
Completing assessment items
Assessments can be submitted to h&h in the following ways:
• By post to: PO Box 1 Granville NSW 2142
• By email to: [email protected]
• In person to the college between 9.00am and 3.00pm Monday to Saturday
• Online assessments are completed through the h&h CANVAS portal, via the link received on enrolment
NB: Students must have made a copy of their assessment/s, for their personal record, before submitting to h&h.
When presenting your written assessment/s, it is important that you follow the guide below, as assessments determine your competency.
For all students, please use the following points as a guide when completing your assessment items:
• Attempt responses to all assessment items
• Show that you have researched the topic thoroughly
• Give clear references (if external information sources are used)
• Write/type in simple, clear language
• Use correct grammar, punctuation (check your spelling)
• Ensure that your name is on all assessment material that is submitted
Online students should follow the instructions for each assessment item in the CANVAS portal.
For all other students, your assessments should:
• Be typed or handwritten (neatly and clearly) using black or blue pen only, pencil is not allowed. Any assessments submitted in pencil will be returned, to be re-written in black or blue pen.
• Include the provided assessment cover sheet and pre-assessment checklist, with your name on both
• Have your name at the bottom of each page, where indicated (Student Name: __________ )
• If more space is required to answer a question, additional pages may be inserted into your assessment book or the ‘Student Notes’ pages can be used. Please ensure that any additional pages are clearly marked with your name and clearly indicate which question your work relates to
• Hardcopies should be submitted in a plastic sleeve without staples. Please do not staple or glue any paperwork into your assessment book
• For submission by email, please ensure that any scanned material is legible. File size should be less than 10MB and filenames should include your name and course code.
Assessment items are not returned as they are kept for compliance purposes, as a part of our quality assurance commitment. It is important to keep a copy of your assessments in case they are lost in transit.
Submitting your own work
Your assessment must be in your own words. When you commenced your course, you signed a h&h Student Declaration Form, which states that you are completing and handing in your own work. Copying someone else’s work is plagiarism and a form of cheating.
Plagiarism is a serious act. Where it has been found that a student has submitted work that has been plagiarised, this activity may lead to expulsion from their individual course, and exclusion from college activities.
When a student is expelled, h&h has no duty to refund any payment for studies undertaken, or studies, as yet, to be commenced.
If a Trainer/Assessor is concerned about a student’s authenticity within their submission, the Trainer/Assessor may request a verbal appointment with the student to assess their gained knowledge through a series of questions from the Student Assessment Booklet. This is overseen by management. A suitable time will be organised with both student and Trainer/Assessor.
For group activities, the Trainer/Assessor will mark each student’s Assessment Booklet with detailed information regarding the student’s contribution to assessment activity (eg a detailed outline of a role play that was delivered and assessed).
Assessment results
Students will receive feedback/results on their assessment items within 14 days of submission (via Trainer/Assessor conversation or email).
Students are aiming to achieve an overall competent result for the unit they are studying. To achieve competency, students must obtain satisfactory results for all assessment items within the unit. Example assessment items are questions and responses, projects, and work experience.
How a Trainer/Assessor determines the assessment item results
The possible assessment results are:
Satisfactory (S)—this result indicates that you have met the relevant criteria in this assessment item, to gain a satisfactory result.
Unsatisfactory (US)—this result indicates some of the below reasons:
• The evidence was not of a satisfactory standard (in this case, you will be required to re-submit the relevant evidence)
• The evidence you submitted was not complete
• The evidence you submitted was not your own work
If you obtain an unsatisfactory result, the Trainer/Assessor will organise a time to go through the assessment item and work with you to devise a suitable action plan to re-submit. Students are able to resubmit their assessment items twice after the initial submission.
Additional support is provided to the student during this time in the form of meetings, extra classes, email and phone support and one-on-one Trainer/Assessor discussions. If a student receives a third unsatisfactory result, they will be required to re-enrol in the unit of competency.
A fundamental element of the h&h training system is the provision of additional support and/or reasonable modifications/adjustment for students requiring further assistance. For example, cultural barriers may limit a student’s understanding in units delivered.
Trainers, in these instances, may investigate a different approach to their training style that is adapted to the particular cultural background.
Appeals against assessment results
Please note students have 30 days from the date that the assessment was deemed Unsatisfactory or NYC to appeal the assessment result. Please contact front reception for an ‘Appeal Against Assessment’ form. This appeal can be submitted on the grounds that:
1. The student was not informed about the assessment process for the course
2. The assessment process differed significantly from what the student was told
3. The assessment environment adversely affected the student’s performance
4. The student believed that they had demonstrated competency in the assessment/s
Good Luck with your studies, from the h&h team!

Steps to follow: (** Please familiarise yourself with the Emergency Evacuation Plan which is located throughout the building)
Step 1. In the event of an emergency, staff, students and visitors are to move to the nearest available exit in an orderly fashion and leave the building without delay, leaving all belongings behind.

Step 2. Follow the Trainer and/or administration staff’s instructions to evacuate the building immediately.
Step 3. Leave the room or area in an orderly manner—stay calm and do not run
Step 4. Follow lights and exit signs (‘the running man’ signs) to guide you throughout the building to the nearest exit doors. Leave the building by the evacuation exits, which are located at: – The front entrance of the college
– Alongside the corridor (near the students’ bathrooms)
Step 5. Once the building has been evacuated, everybody is to walk quickly and calmly to the designated area, which is located at the corner, South Street and William Street (in front of the Church). Trainers will mark class attendance sheets to confirm the number of students.
Step 6. Do not re-enter the building until informed that it is safe to do so by Emergency Service personnel or a management representative.
