Educational Pathways Policy

This policy is intended to provide a broad framework, set of principles and minimal requirements for determining and granting advanced standing and to promote understanding by all students of the requirements for the application of advanced standing.

The College encourages lifelong learning and provides the opportunity for students to have previous learning recognised for advanced standing in their courses (including formal, informal and non-formal learning as defined in the definitions section at the end of this document). The provision of advanced standing for these activities both enables and encourages individuals to enter into, and / or continue with, formal education or training by giving recognition to and avoiding duplication of, relevant previous learning. It also supports equity and fairness in access to, and participation in, education and training.
