Leaders Institute of Training and Education is responsible for the quality of the training and assessment in compliance with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015, and for the issuance of the AQF certification documentation. This means that the Institute is obligated to deliver and assess students in accordance with the course requirements and to issue appropriate credentials to students who have met the assessment requirements and have been assessed as competent in any units of competency.
The National Code 2007 restricts the capacity of students to transfer to other providers prior to completing six months of their principal course. Leaders Institute of Training and Education will not allow students to transfer to another provider within six months of the commencement of their principal course of study in circumstances where the transfer would be detrimental to them as detailed in their application.
If students wish to apply for a letter of release, they will need to apply to the Institute for a letter of release. There is no cost attached to applying for a letter of release; however, students will need to contact Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to seek advice on whether a new visa is required. All applications will be assessed on the basis of the Institute’s Policy, Conditions of Enrolment, the Fee Payment and Refund Policy, the study plan and declaration submitted by the student in their application.
Documented evidence supporting circumstances/reasons for seeking a release letter must be included with this application.
Students may initiate a request to defer commencement of studies or suspend their studies on the grounds of compassionate or compelling circumstances. Students wishing to defer the commencement of studies or suspend their studies must apply to do so in writing to the Institute.
Reasons for suspending your enrolment are limited to extenuating circumstances such as:
- Personal illness (eg. you are going into hospital)
- Bereavement (death to an immediate member of family)
- Serious illness to an immediate member of family
If you know that you will not be attending classes during the study period, you should contact the Institute and arrange an appointment to discuss your circumstances. Subsequent to your meeting and after providing documented evidence supporting circumstances/reasons for seeking suspension or cancellation of enrolment you will be required to formally apply for the deferral or suspension.
The Institute may decide to suspend or cancel a student’s enrolment on its own initiative as a response to misbehaviour by the student. Deferral of commencement, suspension of enrolment and cancellation of enrolment has to be reported to Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) by the Institute and this may affect the status of a student visa.
