  1. The College acknowledges that prospective and current students interact with each other and the College with their own individual protected rights and values. The College therefore ensures that each individual is treated fairly and equally from the first moment he/she contacts the College until graduation.
  2. While the College is open and fair in not restricting students from accessing training programs, it balances this against the responsibility of enrolling students in training programs which clearly provide a benefit to the student. A benefit to the student could be in the form of:
    1. improving the chances of getting a job
    2. furthering an existing career
    3. personal or professional development
    4. meeting a regulatory requirement
  3. The College acknowledges that prospective and current students have their own individual personality, aspirations, experience, skills, knowledge, strengths, and weaknesses which affect their suitability for various careers and the courses which are pathways to them.
  4. The College therefore ensures that each individual’s suitability for a particular course or courses is assessed prior to enrolment as part of the application process. This assessment of suitability is done with the interests of the student as the priority. The aim is that the College directs each Applicant to a course which promotes their future or current prospects of employment or other benefit identified by the Applicant. This assessment of suitability should combine the use of formal assessments completed by the Applicant and directed conversions between the Applicant and delegated career counsellors or program coordinators.
