Special Learning Needs
If you have any special needs in relation to your course, please advise the staff at Benchmark College as soon as possible to support students with their training (e.g. attending classes or appointments with your trainer, reading the textbook, travelling to your course) and/or assessment (such as preparing for assessment, or understanding the assessment activities). Then we can plan how we can help you during your training course. Click here for more information about our support services.
We understand that at times students may require additional services outside of our area of expertise. A range of services including personal and career advisory/counselling services are available. For most services, staff at Benchmark College can contact the provider on your behalf, or you can self-refer. If you require us to contact an external service on your behalf, please talk to your Trainer, or contact the Training Manager. Click here for more information about our support services.
Complaints and Appeals
Benchmark College is committed to developing and maintaining a timely, fair and equitable system for Complaints and Appeals 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. There are trainers, administrative staff and management staff available to assist you in resolving issues at this level. If the issue is not resolved, a formal complaint or appeal can be lodged. For more information about complaints, please refer to our Complaints and Appeals Policy & Procedures, available from here.
An appeal procedure is available to students who believe the assessment process or any assessment event was inappropriately or ineffectively carried out and therefore resulted in an inappropriate assessment or decision being made. For more information about appeals, please refer to our Complaints and Appeals Policy & Procedures, available from here.
