What should I do if I have a complaint?
Benchmark College is committed to developing and maintaining an effective, timely, fair and equitable grievance handling system which is easily accessible and offered to students/clients at no charge.
Wherever possible, students, clients and staff are encouraged to resolve concerns or difficulties directly with the person(s) concerned.

What does 'transitioning qualifications' mean for my employee?
A training package is a set of nationally endorsed standards and qualifications for recognising and assessing people's skills in a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise. They are developed by national Industry Skills Councils (ISCs).
From time to time, ISCs will release new Training Packages. Registered Training Organisations are required to transition students out of superseded (older) qualifications within a 12 month period of the new qualifications release date. If the qualification your employee is currently enrolled in becomes superseded, you will be contacted by Benchmark College and your trainer. Your trainer/assessor will explain your options to you and your employee and assist you in this process.
