Student Information - domestic students

rto code







Brisbane (QLD), Sydney (NSW)

The following Student Information has been prepared as a resource to assist you with information about the services provided by InTech Institute of Technology and our approach to providing you with a safe, fair and supported environment to undertake your training and studies.

Please read the Student Information thoroughly so you are aware of your rights and responsibilities as a student and understand the policies and procedures at InTech Institute of Technology.

We look forward to supporting your educational journey with us to reach your career and study goals!

In Australia, and through InTech, the quality of your education is guaranteed. The national VET Regulator – Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) ensures the quality of your education for RTO by ensuring that RTOs meet the Standards for Registered Training (2015). This quality extends to full-time international students, VET in School Students, Apprentices, Higher Skills Students and RPL clients. This quality extends to any student whether onshore in Australia or offshore where students are undertaking training and assessment in any other country.

Accredited training means that our training programs:

  • have been aligned to accredited units of competency from a nationally endorsed Training Package
  • involve a formal assessment of skills and knowledge to determine competency
  • entitle the student to receive an endorsed Certificate or Statement of Attainment with the nationally recognised training logo and stating the units of competency achieved.
  • Accredited qualifications can only be delivered by an RTO or TAFE.


Training packages define the skills and knowledge needed by learners to perform a job. They do not specify how to train learners. Each training package contains three components:

  • Units of competency define the skills and knowledge needed, and how to apply them in a workplace context.
  • A qualifications framework contains groups of units of competency used to develop learning outcomes. These groupings range from Certificate I to Graduate Diploma level.
  • Assessment guidelines cover the qualifications required by assessors, the design of assessment processes and guidelines for assessment management. Assessment guidelines explain the industry’s preferred approach to assessment.


Training Packages consist of a number of Qualifications that break down the skills and knowledge into specific areas of expertise and level required. A qualification may have specific skillsets that it addresses – often referred to as specialisations in the industry. Qualifications also have AQF levels such as Certificate II, III, IV or Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma.


Each qualification is then broken down into Units of Competency or “subjects”. These units are the topics or individual tasks that are needed to carry out the job role in that industry. A Qualification will consist of CORE units of competency that must be completed and elective units of competency that may be selected according to the package rule of the qualification. These units are selected in consultation with the learner with the job roles the learner intends to pursue.

In competency-based training, there is no “pass” or “fail”. Assessment is simply the demonstration of the specified skills and knowledge to the required level. If this is done, the student is “competent”. If the assessment does not produce enough evidence to demonstrate the requirements, then the student is “not competent” and is given further opportunities to gather additional evidence. 

Each of the units may be assessed in a number of different ways and may include, but not limited to: 

  • Question and Answer – either written or verbal 
  • Observation of the student by the assessor (Direct) 
  • Third-Party Observation by the workplace supervisor (Indirect) 
  • Written – usually activities, research projects or short reports/essays, case studies 
  • Samples of work produced 
  • Supplementary evidence such as policies and procedures from the workplace 

Assessment is all about collecting enough evidence to show that the student is competent in the skills and knowledge specified by the Unit of Competency. When collecting and assessing the evidence the following must be considered: 

  1. The evidence must meet the needs of the training package.
    All training modules and assessment tasks are prepared to meet the requirements of the unit of competence in line with the training package. Learner’s units selected will be stated in the learners training plan.

  2. The evidence must be authentic.
    This means that the work must be the student’s own and not copied from somewhere or someone else. If another person’s work is referenced the source must be acknowledged. Learners must ensure that the assessments provided are that of their own work -including videos, photographic evidence or assignments.

  3. Tasks must be demonstrated under real workplace conditions.
    The assessment should show that the student can manage themselves and their time during the tasks, deal with unexpected situations and do all this under real workplace conditions. If the training has occurred in a classroom, the environment should simulate a workplace as much as possible.

  4. Assessments must be fair.
    This means that if a student has any special characteristics that may affect their ability to do a particular assessment task, then an adjustment should be made to that task as long as the outcomes of the unit are still demonstrated. For example, someone with poor eyesight may have the written material provided in large print or someone with a physical disability may be able to have someone scribe for them. Fairness is also making sure that the student understands the requirements of the assessment and is willing to be assessed at that time. It is also fair that a student is able to appeal against an assessment decision. Please review the appeals policy and procedure.

  5. Assessment should be flexible.
    This means that there should be a number of different assessment approaches and methods that can be used to suit different situations. Flexibility also applies to recognising your skills and knowledge no matter where or how you learned them, this may be through RPL or Credit Transfer.

  6. The Assessment Should Be Reliable.
    This means that the assessment will produce consistent evidence when used by different students and that different assessors will make the same decision based on the evidence.

  7. The Assessment Process Must Be Valid.
    This means that all the points above have been met and that the assessment actually assesses what it says it will.

Prior to the assessment taking place, the trainer will give the student the assessment workbook which contains the tasks that need to be completed. 


Incomplete Assessments or where “non-competence” are identified will result in the Assessment being handed back to the student for further assessment. If there is a “Not Satisfactory” assessment outcome, the Assessor will discuss and provide feedback to the student on the area/s for improvement and confirm further requirements. At this time a mutually agreed future date for re-assessment will be set. 

Re-Assessment Process: 

  • Each student is entitled to 3 total assessment attempts 
  • Each re-assessment timeframe will be negotiated depending on the skills gap as well as access to the assessment resources

Assessment Appeals 

  • A fair and impartial appeals process is available to all students. If a student wishes to appeal an assessment result, they should first discuss the issue with the Trainer/Assessor. If the student is not satisfied with the outcome of the initial discussion they can then proceed with a formal appeal by completing the Assessment Appeals Form and forwarding to the Complaints Officer. 
  • The appeal application should be received by the Complaints Officer, no later than 5 ordinary business days after the notification of the assessment results. 
  • All appeals will be handled directly by the Manager responsible for Training in each location who will review the assessment decision and appeal application in consultation with the appropriate trainer. The result of the appeal will be communicated to the student in writing, including reasons for the decision made within 5 business days. Records of all complaints and outcomes will be securely maintained on the student’s file.

Our classroom training offers the benefits of group training in a supportive learning environment and sessions are delivered by a qualified and experienced trainer. The class sizes are usually between 12 and 20 students, so the trainer is always available to assist each person individually.

Training in a classroom may involve group discussion, demonstration, activities, role-plays and workplace simulations. These sessions are designed to establish the knowledge and skills that the student will need to practice and develop before undertaking any assessments.

The trainer will discuss all the assessment activities that must be completed and will give full support and assistance to every student to help them achieve competence. Generally, all the assessment activities are completed during the scheduled classroom sessions.

Student Obligations to Complete the Course Successfully

In order to gain the most benefit from the learning experience, the student should:

  • Attend training sessions at the scheduled times
  • Advise the college of any concerns or issues that will prevent attendance at any session
  • Fully participate in all training activities
  • Complete all assessment tasks
  • Follow instructions willingly and promptly
  • Respect others and their property
  • Demonstrate appropriate behaviour and be prepared to learn
  • Respond to emails and text messages in a timely manner

InTech Obligations In Providing The Training

Workplace-based training involves learning and acquiring vocational skills on the job. This approach to training is a combination of theory, instruction and structured learning on-the-job which allows hands-on practical application and practice of the theory.

Training is designed to suit employees wishing to learn new skills and improve existing skills whilst working productively in a job. Training delivered in a workplace can be contextualised to suit an individual organisation.

This training is offered to:

  • Trainees and Apprentices
  • Workers – doing Gap training and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
  • VET in School students on a vocational placement
  • International Students – combining Classroom with Vocational Placement learning

How does workplace Training work?
In workplace-based programs, the training is the responsibility of the RTO, the workplace and the learner.

A qualified and experienced workplace trainer is allocated to each business. Training visits are scheduled for every 3 – 4 weeks (depending on the program) and are approximately 2 hours in duration, however times may vary depending on the individual’s needs. This training must be conducted in an area away from the student’s normal work area and may occur one-on-one or in small groups.

Our workplace trainers integrate the learning requirements of the relevant VET qualification with a trainee’s daily duties and tasks. Job Cards, Job Sheets, work projects are often used as assessment tasks that integrate with the learners daily tasks.

The trainer will use a variety of techniques to introduce the learning topics. These techniques might include: discussion, demonstration, activities, role plays, simulations, etc., and are designed to establish the knowledge and skills that the student will need to practice and develop before assessment. The trainer will also provide advice to the student and the supervisor on how the workplace can provide opportunities to practice and demonstrate these skills.

The trainer will also discuss the assessment activities that must be completed by the student and how the supervisor can support and assist the student to achieve competence.

What Does The Nominated Workplace Mentor Need To Do?

For some courses, nominated workplace mentors play a vital role in the student’s learning and assessment experience.

The responsibilities of a nominated workplace mentor are outlined below:

  • The workplace mentor is to be an experienced person available within the Employer’s organisation and may be a team leader, supervisor or manager of the individual student, alternatively, the mentor may be an external person depending upon the arrangements within the Employer’s organisation and as agreed to with Intech.
  • The workplace mentor can be the student’s supervisor or manager
  • The mentor is expected to be a subject matter expert, and would normally be expected to have at least three years of experience in their industry and to be able to advise the student on the skills and knowledge they are acquiring.
  • Ideally, the workplace mentor would hold the same qualification that the student is completing however this is not mandatory
  • This mentor/supervisor is to be determined by the employer and details provided to InTech’s trainer/assessor
  • Workplace mentors/trainee supervisors will act under the guidance of InTech trainer/assessor for the completion of the Supervisor/Third Party Report which forms a part of assessment evidence for each unit of competency
  • Provide a work environment that gives the learner the best opportunity to develop a range of vocational skills


What Does The Student Need To Do?

In order to gain the most benefit from the training experience the student should:

  • Perform their job role as determined by the employer to the best of their ability
  • Actively participate in the program and commit appropriate efforts to their work
  • Complete all activities and assessments as requested by the trainer/assessor to the best of their ability
  • Inform their trainer/assessor of any problems they may be having with the training program as soon as possible

  • Consult with the workplace supervisor to ensure that all necessary activities are demonstrated to workplace standards.
  • Inform their trainer/assessor of any change to personal details, such as address, phone number and email address
  • Communicate in a timely manner on all issues relating to the trainee.

Once you’ve decided on a course you would be required to fill in an application form and submit it to InTech. The application form is available on the InTech website or email

Prior to enrolling in a course, you should consider the career pathway and future work opportunities that the course will deliver to you.

There are a number of steps you must go through including:

  • Deciding on your preferred course.
  • Submitting your application to InTech.
  • Receiving and accepting a Letter of Offer from InTech.

There are a range of entry requirements that you will need to meet both for your chosen course Academic requirements:

  • Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirements.
  • Age Requirements

It’s also important if you are full time employed to meet with your HR department to work out the required licences and qualifications for your job role.

If the student is employed as a trainee or apprentice or school-based apprentice, then the job network provider will complete the necessary application paperwork and each party will complete their sections.

For VET in School, Fee for Service, Gap Training, RPL and other services, the student and Intech will complete the required enrolment process. On completion and acceptance of the enrolment InTech will create a training plan that will be agreed to by all parties.

The training plan is an agreement between the student and InTech (and the employer if a traineeship contract exists), which sets out the training conditions and the type of training to be undertaken. Students have the right to negotiate with InTech (and their employer) to develop a plan that recognises the skills already attained, and the best options for training delivery, supervision and workplace support.

Training Plans vary but must include:

  •  Student details
  • RTO details – Name, Address, Contact details
  • The Qualification (Qualification Title and Code) being undertaken and the core and elective competencies (Unit Title and Code) needed to achieve it.
  • A list of units of competency (Unit Title and Code) for which RPL or Credit Transfer have been granted.
  • Potential timeframes Hours and Program Supervised Teaching Activity Completion date

  • Methods and indicative dates of assessment and records of results.
  • For traineeship contracts only:
    • Details of the planned release from routine duties to undertake off‐the‐job training
    • Details of how the student will be supervised

If you don’t meet the entry requirements to get into the course you want in Australia, InTech may be able to assist you to reach your goal. This may include studying at InTech in English language preparation or studying a vocational education and training course in Business, Information Technology or Engineering.

InTech currently has advanced standing with a number of universities where students who complete the InTech course may get credit for up to 1 year of university study.  

Some of our InTech pathway programs have been ongoing since the year 2002. Please send an email queryon the proposed course and university pathway program.

You can find up to date fees and charges information in the course outline for your course on the InTech website Fees and charges specific to your course will be shown in a written agreement that will we send to you with a letter of offer once your application has been accepted.

You will receive a tax invoice for the amount you are required to pay. The Tax invoice will provide you with InTech’s nominated account for payments of fees held in advance. You can pay your fees by direct bank transfer. All prepaid fees are protected in line with the requirements of the VET Quality Framework that legislates the provision of training and assessment in Australia.

Course fees include all administration, materials and tuition fees.  Any optional textbooks or materials that may be recommended but are not required for completion of the course are not included in the course fees. Course fees also include up to 2 attempts at assessment per unit.  However, if after these attempts you have not passed, you will either be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the parts of the course that you have passed or, to gain the full qualification, you will be required to re-sit the part of the course that the assessment relates to and pay a re-sit fee.

Different charges will be levied for a person applying for RPL.

InTech reserves the right to withhold granting the award attained by the student if student fees remain outstanding. InTech’s dispute resolution processes do not circumscribe the student’s rights to pursue other legal remedies. Refer to the Student Complaints and Appeals Procedure if you wish to appeal the Refund Policy.

Adjustment of Course Duration and Fees

As a result of successful credit transfer and RPL being granted – students may have a reduced course fee and course duration.

Students who have learning difficulties or personal hardships may take a longer duration as suggested in training plan. These would be assessed on a case by case basis.

Students who require specialist assistance – where that assistance is sought from a 3rd party – independent of the college – will be charged to the student. These charges will be made known to the student prior to the services being provided.

Student Fees are calculated on an individual basis for each student. A number of factors will determine the fee amount including eligibility for government-subsidised training, nominal hours enrolled, RPL/credit transfer hours, previous fees paid and eligibility for concessions. Where total fees exceed $1,500.00, fees will be payable in instalments as per a documented payment plan with no instalment greater than $1,500.

Fees quoted are applicable for training services provided in the current calendar year – further fees will be payable for training services scheduled to continue into future calendar years. Student fees are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment.

Fees For Training Subsidised Under Government Funding

InTech will calculate the out-of-pocket fee to be paid by the learner for each State depending on the course and program they will enrol in. These fees will also be subject to the personal circumstances of the student. This may include concession rates for domestic students, refugees, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, veterans, Pensioners and Concession Card Holders.

Please check the Intech website for the latest fee details for domestic – funded students.

In some circumstances, there will be a waiver of out-of-pocket fee depending on personal circumstances.

Other Fees and Charges

InTech may impose a non-academic fee for the purpose of proving student services and amenities. All these will be itemised into the enrolment pack prior to enrolment. Where 3rd party provider is required – such as specialist LLN support then the student must negotiate that directly with the service provider of that service.

Fee-For-Service Fees (Non-Government Subsidised Training)
Student fees will be payable for all programs as per the pre‐training review completed at the time of enrolment. Student fees will be payable in instalments depending on the number of applicable training sessions, with the first instalment due at the time of enrolment. Subsequent instalments will be due at least 7 days prior to each scheduled session date or the date on the training program agreement.

If book fees are applicable to a course, these fees will be listed in the pre-training review, and will be payable at enrolment.

Refunds will be applied in accordance with InTech Training Refund Policy for Domestic Students which states:

  • A full refund of student fees (less a $250 administration charge for full fee-paying students only) will be paid if a student cancels prior to the commencement of training
  • Student fees are non-refundable after the commencement of training where the amount paid is less than $1,000 per student.
  • If a Traineeship is ceased for any reason within the first four (4) weeks from the scheduled commencement date of training, a full refund of tuition fees will be made minus an administration charge of $250.00 – only applicable to full fee-paying students.
  • InTech may grant refunds in other circumstances of greater amounts if it sees fit.
  • InTech cannot accept responsibility for changes to work commitments or personal circumstances as grounds for a refund once the course has commenced.
  • Book fees (if applicable) and all other additional fees (if applicable) are non- refundable.
  • Refunds will be paid in the following circumstances:
  • A full refund of student fees and all other fees will be paid if a course is cancelled by InTech prior to a student’s commencement
  • A pro-rata refund of student fees will be paid in the event of a mid-course cancellation. This will be calculated based on the proportion of training not provided or scheduled. (In these circumstances, refunds will not be paid for students who have missed scheduled training sessions or where the cancellation date is after the final proposed assessment date.)

InTech intends to be fair and reasonable in the application of refunds and may apply additional discretionary refunds in exceptional circumstances. To apply for a refund, students and/or employers should submit a request in writing to InTech within 14 days of a student’s withdrawal.

All requests for refunds must be made in writing i.e. email is acceptable. Emails must be sent to

Students, in general, are assessed in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector for each element of competency addressed as “C” (Competent) or “NYC” (Not Yet Competent).  A student who does not meet the course progress must be reported to the Department of Home Affairs for failure to meet course progress.

Students who have received a result of “NYC” (not yet competent) in any subject should contact the Head of Studies to organise for another assessment as soon as possible.

Furthermore, students are not allowed to extend their course to complete subjects for which they have received an “NYC”. All units for which students have received NYC should be attempted and passed before the course end date.

Students are able to appeal the recording of an ‘NYC’ for any competency unit or learning outcome provided they had good attendance for that subject and had reasonable participation in all assessments. Students are responsible to follow up on their failing grades.

What is the job market like in Australia?

There are a wide range of jobs available for students in Queensland and New South Wales. To learn more about which job suits you best, visit the Australian Government Job Outlook website.  This website contains valuable information on thousands of jobs including:

  1. Job prospects
  2. Weekly earnings
  3. Occupation size
  4. Skills and qualifications needed
  5. Job vacancies.

Earning while Studying

We encourage all students to work in the field in which they are studying. This allows the student to gain a far greater knowledge and skill base.

How can I prepare myself for a job?

There are a number of training programs outlined below that can help prepare students to successfully gain a job.

  1. Internships
    An internship is a pre-professional work experience that provides international students, recent graduates, and those seeking to change careers with the opportunity to gain experience in a particular career field.  Professional Internships are sought by Government agencies and/or major corporations generally to up-skill and/or enhance staff performance. The internships fields sought are generally where Australia is recognised as a market leader or where there is intent to gain business understanding or future business cooperation.

  2. Vocational placement
    Vocational placement is where a student is placed in a workplace to receive practical training and experience that is required under, and is an assessable part of, a student’s course, leading to the issuing of a qualification or statement of attainment.

  3. Work experience
    Work experience assists students in their transition from school to work. It provides a formal arrangement whereby students participate in activities at a place of paid or voluntary work. Students may undertake work sampling, work shadowing, research work experience and structured work placement. At all times, the educational value of the program for any student should be the prime consideration.

  4. Volunteering
    Volunteer work is a great way to learn valuable real-world skills and give back to the greater community.

Student Work Rights & Obligations

Australia has strict laws relating to employment conditions. These apply to anyone working in Australia. They cover a wide range of topics including:

  • the minimum amount you must get paid
  • your taxation and superannuation obligations
  • safety at your place of employment
  • what work you can do
  • unfair treatment in the workplace.

Information for workers about pay, tax, your employment rights and what to do if there is a problem is available from the Government’s employment website.

There are many consumer protection and support services available for students. This includes services provided directly by InTech as well as those provided by a range of state, territory and federal government departments.

Student Protection

The Students Ombudsman (OSO) investigates complaints about problems that overseas students have with private education and training institutions in Australia. The Ombudsman’s services are free, independent and impartial. You can find out more about this service on their website:

Below is a list of the Ombudsman websites for all states and territories in Australia:

Consumer Protection

The Australian Consumer Law includes a national law guaranteeing consumer rights when buying goods and services. You should contact the relevant government trade and consumer agency in your state or territory if you:

  • Would like information about your consumer rights.
  • Have a problem with a consumer good or service that you have bought or are considering buying.
  • Would like to know how a business should behave under the law.
  • Would like to make a complaint about a business.

We are dedicated to continuously improving our services to meet the needs and expectations of our international students and our friendly staff are on hand to give advice. Student Support Services helps to resolve problems that may impede the successful completion of student’s study programs. This includes student services such as:

Disability Support

Australia has laws that protect individuals from discrimination in many areas of public life, including education. A person with a disability has just as much right to study as any other student. This means that institutions cannot:

  • Refuse admission on the basis of disability.
  • Accept a student with a disability on less favourable terms than other students (for example, asking for higher fees).
  • Deny or limit access to a student with a disability (for example, not allowing access to excursions, or having inaccessible student common rooms or lecture facilities)
  • At present InTech has limited access for wheelchairs – however, this restriction is in the process of being rectified.

Emergency Matters

  • Contact details – 000

Students who successfully complete vocational education during the previous year may also be asked to participate in the Student Outcomes Survey (SOS), which is an annual survey funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and conducted by the National Centre for Vocational Education and Research (NCVER).

The aim of the Student Outcomes Survey is to improve the outcomes of vocational education and training (VET) by gathering information on the:

  • Outcomes from training (e.g. employment and further study outcomes)
  • Relevance of the training
  • Benefits of the training
  • Satisfaction with the training
  • Reasons for not continuing the training (where applicable).

The information is used by national and state/territory bodies, along with local training providers, to ensure vocational training is of high quality and relevant to Australian workplaces. The survey highlights both the positive and negative outcomes from training and assists in administering, planning, and evaluating the VET system.


Note that from 1 July 2021, the QLD Government will contact learners directly for feedback and surveys on their training programs and study.
