CHC40213 Certificate IV in Education Support reflects the role of education support workers in a range of educational settings – including government and independent schools and community education settings. Education support workers provide classroom assistance and support to teachers and students, under broad-based supervision. Course participants include people who are currently working in a range of education and school settings.
A pre-requisite for enrolment in the Triscott Certificate IV in Education Support program is that the participant is currently employed on a part-time basis in a school setting OR has successfully completed the CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support. An entry requirement for this program includes validated evidence in directly supervised support roles as an education support worker – as included in the individual’s Pre-Assessment Interview.
The program is offered over 48 weeks and participants require a training commitment of between 10-12 hours per week – acknowledging that much of the training/learning will be achieved and recognised ‘on-the-job’ in their current on-going workplace. In consultation with the participant and their workplace supervisor, a Triscott trainer-assessor will arrange workplace visits for each participant on an individual basis.

Unique Student Identifier (USI Number)
The USI initiative will be supported through commonwealth legislation and a national ICT system and will provide accurate and comprehensive information about students’ training achievements and movements within the VET system.
The Unique Student Identifier (USI)
Under the Student Identifiers Act 2014, each student’s USI is to be reported from 1 January 2015. All nationally accredited enrolments – irrespective of whether they occur under VTG or fee-for-service – are required to have a USI. From 1/10/14, each student can apply for a USI account through the USI website. Triscott is required to collect (and verify) each student’s USI before enrolment is finalised.
Victorian Student Number (VSN Number)
The Victorian Government has legislated and implemented a Victorian Student Number (VSN) for students in Victoria. The VSN is a student identification number that has been assigned by DEECD to all students in government and non-government schools, and to students below the age of 25 undertaking VET training.

This program has been developed to be delivered over a period of 12 x 2 hour in-class sessions – generally on a 3-weekly basis within school term dates.
Students are required to undertake further study and research in their own time – outside of the scheduled classes – to supplement the classroom delivery.
Student learning involves recognition of their current skills and experience in their workplaces, reinforcement of learning in the workplace, opportunities to develop individual and group skills and integration of on-the-job and off-thejob learning. Students are required to submit relevant documentation that supports their knowledge, understandings,
skills and competencies – based on their workplace responsibilities.
Students will be provided with a copy of the Triscott Certificate IV in Education Support Work-book and an accompanying Task document.
RPL recognises the student’s previous learning, life experiences, work experience, any training provided in the workplace and measures it against the units of study of the Certificate IV in Education Support.
Students who have completed units from a course at another RTO will be granted Credit Transfer on presentation of an original Statement of Attainment or verified transcript award from that RTO.
Student feedback is collected and analysed:
Complaints and Appeals Procedure:
The complaint and appeal procedures relate to the delivery of training and/or the student’s assessment.
The student is required to initiate the following:
If the grievance, complaint or appeal cannot be resolved at the CEO level, the matter will then be referred to the Triscott Board of Management
If the grievance, complaint or appeal cannot be resolved internally, the CEO will advise the student of the appropriate body where the student can seek further assistance.
Each grievance, complaint or appeal and its outcome will be recorded in writing (and filed electronically) and each appellant will have an opportunity to present their case before an independent person or panel.
As our programs are based on flexible and independent studies - an initial meeting with the student/group of students will be organised with the CEO. Negotiated meeting and training times will then be developed with the trainer-assessor and the student/s. Generally, meetings will be arranged between 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm, every 3 weeks on pre-arranged dates. training can also be considered in school holidays and/or weekends (if requested).
