Australian Quality Framework (AQF)

Easy HR is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) registered by ASQA. In order to maintain our registered status, we must comply with the AQF standards which outline the basis upon which all RTOs must operate. The AQF provides the basis for a nationally consistent, high-quality vocational education and training system.

Easy HR Aims And Objectives

Easy HR provides a common sense, practical approach to training. Our trainers are fully qualified and have extensive practical and theoretical experience in industry. You will learn the skills and competencies required by learning from professionals who ‘practice what they teach'. This enables us to bring the expertise and knowledge of a ‘real life situation' to our training environment.

This includes learning one-on-one through distance learning. A quality control system is in place to maintain standards and develop improvements to the education and training process.

Learner Support and Assistance

Most of our courses are short workshops. So we do not have extensive support services for our participants. But we want our participants to succeed in their learning. If participants are having difficulties our trainers and assessors can provide the following types of learner support assistance.

Participants are encouraged to discuss any problems or issues they may have in learning. The trainer will try to identify together with the participant what issues the participant may face in learning and adjust the class accordingly.

Such assistance may include :

  • Explanations of parts of the learning that have not been understood.
  • Repeat of classes (subject to availability)
  • Extra time on practicals and testing as appropriate
  • Individual or group coaching subject to agreement by the employer.

We do not offer guidance or welfare advice given the length of our courses and our expertise.

Easy HR will follow up on complaints of harassment. You should first talk to the Trainer about your circumstances. You may also wish to talk to your employer. There is a process to follow such complaints that is fair and meets our legal obligations.

You have the right to seek advice from relevant government bodies such as the Anti-Discrimination Board or an Ethnic Council.

Qualifications or credentials cannot be purchased and payment for any course does not guarantee that the Participant will achieve the competencies required or receive the qualification or credential.

 

Assessment results

You will be assessed as Competent (C) or Not Yet Competent (NYC)

If the participant receives a ‘NYC' they will be briefed in private as to where they need to concentrate in order to achieve competency, and given a second opportunity to undergo re-assessment. This opportunity may involve repeating the course.

A participant who still cannot demonstrate competency will be counselled and advised of options. This may include further training for which a fee may be payable.

The results of your assessments are provided where possible on the day of training.

The results of your assessments are entered into our databases as a long term record. They may also be forwarded to the employer.

Assessment records are confidential and remain the property of Easy HR.

Participants have the right to sight their records.

Should you fail to complete the entire course, or choose to complete a short course workshop, you will be awarded an AQF Statement of Attainment outlining those units in which you demonstrated competence.

Easy HR manages records to ensure their accuracy and integrity.

 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Assessment only pathway - Participants who believe they do not need to complete the full course can book for an assessment only processes where are testers come to the workplace.

The Company supports the process of RPL for participants who have undertaken appropriate studies or work experience and who can provide evidence of competency.

You may apply for RPL for competencies (skills and knowledge) that you already possess. Applications for RPL must be made in writing and supported by sufficient evidence for a decision to be made against the competencies claimed.

Should you wish to apply for RPL, you should speak to your Trainer who will conduct the initial review, indicate where more evidence may be required and provide you with the RPL Application Form.

 

Participant complaints and assessment appeals procedures

All complaints and appeals must be dealt with in a constructive and timely manner.

Steps to follow in an assessment appeal:
For testing and assessments, if the participant appeals the results, the Assessor will immediately discuss the outcome to resolve the difference and reach agreement.

If agreement cannot be reached, the participant has the right to be assessed again by the same assessor, or requests that another assessor undertakes the assessment.

If agreement is still not reached, an appeals form must be completed. Then the participant and Director, or nominee, shall meet to discuss the assessment. Details of the meeting will be recorded in writing and the participant informed of the decision.

If agreement still cannot be reached, and the Participant wishes to make a formal appeal, then this appeal must be heard by an independent person or panel if resolution cannot be reached first

Steps to follow if clients or participants have a complaint with Easy HR
We are customer focused and want to use complaints as an opportunity to improve our services.

In the first instance, the complaint should be discussed with the relevant member of staff or the Director. If not satisfied, a complaints form should be filled out and sent to the Director.

Details of any meetings with the complainant will be recorded in writing and the complainant informed.

If agreement still cannot be reached, and the complainant wishes to pursue the matter it can be taken to the Department of Fair Trading or the Training Complaints Hotline.

How to get the most out of your Easy HR Training Course

  • Come well rested and have breakfast or a meal prior to commencing.
  • Come ready to learn — determine to leave outside concerns and work behind for these few hours.
  • Don't give people your mobile and tell them that you can be contacted during the course. This is very disruptive to the whole group. You will be asked to switch off your mobile during the training.
  • Allow plenty of time — plan to be 15 minutes early.
  • Pre-read any material we send you.
  • Wear appropriate loose and comfortable clothing.
  • Where personal protective equipment is a requirement, participants are expected to wear it.

 

Our Responsibility the Easy HR Code of Practice
