Learning Environment 

Classroom-based, multicultural groups in an instructor‐led learning environment 

Simulated Work and Learning Environment

Where students are not in a workplace setting (e.g. classroom sessions), a simulated environment will be created to provide the real‐life context and resemble the actual workplace conditions. 

As best practice, Raymond International College shall endeavor to establish industry partnerships to provide examples and context of an actual workplace environment. However, where it is not possible, the simulated environment will be achieved through role play, scenario‐based activities and adjustments to classroom layout. 

The simulated work environment, when used, will closely resemble what occurs in a real work environment. The simulated work environment will also involve a range of activities that reflect real work experience. 

In the simulated work environment, Raymond International College shall ensure that the trainers and assessors are thoroughly familiar with the units of competency as well as be experienced in the current circumstances of the work. 


Assessing in simulated environments 

Raymond International College strongly believes that simulations must provide opportunities for integrated assessment of competence that include: 

  • performing the task (task skills) 
  • managing a number of tasks (task management skills) 
  • dealing with workplace irregularities such as unexpected problems, breakdowns and changes in routine (contingency management skills) 
  • fulfilling the responsibilities and expectations of the job and workplace, including working with others (job/role environment skills)transferring competencies to new contexts. 

Assessment activities must be realistic and reasonable in terms of scale. Assessment conducted under simulated conditions should reflect those typically found in the workplace. 

Students will have access to a simulated workplace environment in the classroom to learn and practice their skills. Raymond International College understands the importance to study real life case studies and examples, so students get exposed to industry practices and trends, so they are ready to leap into the industry fully prepared. Real world quality outcomes and authentic learning are a focus of our training and this is done by having industry current trainers who have vast experience in the industry, the use of real case studies in the learning sessions and in some of the assessment tasks. 


Recognition of prior learning / credit transfer

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where skills and knowledge that you have gained through work or unrecognised training, potentially life experience can be formally recognised and reduce the amount of required study or cover the entire course in specific circumstances. 

Raymond International College has a process that has been structured to minimise the time and cost to applicants and provides a supportive approach to students wishing to apply for RPL. We encourage you to discuss RPL with one of our trained team to Raymond International College ertain if RPL may be suitable for you and ideally apply for RPL at the time of enrolment, however you may apply up to 2 weeks into your course.
