  • whether the student is in the correct qualification level to be successful,
  • whether any special needs exist for the student.

An assessment of the individual student needs will be undertaken. The assessment will ensure each student is capable of undertaking training and assessment from home or with limited face to face. The VET Student Online and distance Study Capability Checklist is available from VET Resources and Forms and is to be used for this purpose.

  • a stable internet connection suitable for video conferencing (0365 Teams) recommend NBN or 4G
