Contributors

Version
VT2.0

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.
