Webinar Recording: The What, Why, Who, How and When of Reasonable Adjustment

Velg Training


Recorded on 21/10/2019 as part of National VET PD Week, this webinar answered the question: What does reasonable adjustment really mean in practice? With a focus on compliance (rather than equity) it unpacked the what, why, who, how and when!

Topic overview:

What does reasonable adjustment mean in practice?  The Standards for RTOS 2015 and the AQTF are almost silent on reasonable adjustment.  Yet, we see the phrase used in User Guides and auditors may ask about reasonable adjustment.

You may have statements about it in Training and Assessment Strategies and assessment materials.  But have you really thought about those statements and what they mean?

Do you 'do what you say you will do'?  CAN you 'do what you say'?

This session had a compliance focus rather than an equity focus.

What was covered in the session:

  • What is reasonable adjustment?
  • Why is it required?
  • Who qualifies for reasonable adjustment?
  • How do I offer it and what options do I have?
  • When is reasonable adjustment not an option?

Webinar content targeted towards:

  • Trainers and Assessors
  • Heads of Faculty/Department/Area Managers
  • Private Individuals
  • Curriculum Developers/L&D Managers
  • RTO Managers
  • Compliance Managers

Webinar duration: 60 minutes
