CODE OF PRACTICE
Front-Line Training Consultancy Ltd (FLTC) has been an NZQA Registered and Accredited Private Training Provider since 1993 and has holds a Category 1 status.
To enrol refer to our online booking system www.front-line.co.nz .
Course dates, content and prices are available on the website.
Corporate courses generally have open entry, some criteria may apply on industry specific programmes.
Assessment requirements may vary. It is important to be aware of assessment dates. The assessment process will be explained.
You will be asked to sign a “Client Declaration” statement prior to each assessment being undertaken. This is your guarantee to us that all the work you are submitting is your own.
Resits - In a situation where you have not achieved competency in all sections of a unit standard assessment, you will be given two resit opportunities to meet the required standard in each of the outcome and evidence requirements.
To qualify for a resit, you must have made a serious attempt to answer each question on your first attempt. If you would like to be considered for reassessment, firstly approach your Tutor and request a resit or alternatively your Tutor may suggest a resit.
If reassessment is deemed not to be appropriate – that is, you did not achieve a significant proportion of the assessment on your first attempt; your Tutor may suggest you undertake further learning before re-attempting the assessment.
If you have already achieved a unit standard you are not required to resit the assessment however, due to the programme format you will be required to complete all material. If there has been a version change you will be required to resit the assessment.
The opportunity for resits are available within the academic calendar year (01/01/XX-31/12-XX). Giving it meets the 3 months reporting requirement. In other words, you have 3 months from the initial assessment submission.
Feedback - You will be shown your marked script and will have the opportunity to discuss the results with your Tutor.
Return of Scripts
We hold marked assessments/scripts until March of the year following your year of study. If you would like to uplift your scripts at this time, please inform us during the time you are studying with us. After that time the papers are destroyed. A small selection of assessments will be kept for an extra year to meet NZQA consistency review requirements.
If you wish to appeal an assessment marking decision, discuss the matter with your appointed staff member. In the event you are not satisfied with the outcome; put your concerns in writing to the Manager within five working days. If substantiated your concern will go through a management review process.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Recognition Transfer (CRT)
FLTC promotes the concept of evaluating prior learning and recognising current competence. If you feel you have appropriate experience and
wish to be assessed, please ask your tutor for further information. You will be asked to provide evidence in a range of different forms. Credit is awarded for demonstrated competence achieved through life or work experience.
Any client wishing to lodge a complaint should do so in the first instance to the person with whom the concern has been generated. If the concern is not satisfactorily resolved, then the complaint should then be put in writing and delivered to the Manager within five working days. The client will be given the opportunity to speak about the complaint as will the other person/s concerned. The Manager will be empowered to rule on the complaint and will seek to resolve the issue if a solution cannot be negotiated and agreed.
Where either party to the dispute is not satisfied with any such ruling, they may, within seven days of notification of the ruling, advise the Manager that they wish to have the complaint reheard by an independent arbitrator. Both parties concerned must mutually agree to this person. Note: in the event the Manager is unavailable to deal with complaints, authority will be transferred to the Chief Executive Officer.
If your complaint remains unresolved, you are able to contact the New Zealand Qualifications Authority in Wellington (04) 802 3000 for further support.
