Upon successful completion of the course requirements, the student will be awarded a BSB50420 Diploma of Leadership and Management qualification.

Participants will be advised of the assessment requirements at the beginning of each unit.

Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements about whether competency has been achieved to confirm whether an individual can perform to the standards expected in the workplace, as expressed in the relevant endorsed unit of competency.

Assessment is carried out in accordance with the:

    • benchmarks for assessment
    • specific industry requirements
    • principles of assessment
    • rules of evidence

Assessment will usually commence in the session following delivery and it may take considerable time to complete both the theory and/or practical requirements. As this is a competency-based program, assessment continues throughout the program until the participant either achieves competency in the assessment tasks or a further training need is identified and addressed.

Formative assessment is provided throughout the course.  This is achieved through a range of activities and assessments throughout the training program.  These tasks are separate to the summative assessment process that concludes each unit of competency

The assessment process may include theory, projects and practical assessments.

Each unit has an individual assessment tool and mapping document which establishes the details assessment methodology including:

    • Outlining the assessment methods
    • Providing instructions for the assessor
    • Providing instructions for the students
    • Being mapped to the unit of competency through a separate mapping document
    • Ensuring assessment is summative

Assessment is based on realistic workplace scenarios and simulations as students;  

    • May not be in suitable employment or
    • May be working in workplaces or work situations that do not use or allow the application of the competency required.

Pre-Training Review:

The Pre-training Review is to be conducted within the Determining Suitability Review. It will consist of a self-assessment and series of questions that are relevant to identify the prospective student’s current academic and professional skills and knowledge.

The pre-training review is conducted as a means of determining the appropriateness of the chosen qualification, any prior knowledge in the field and if it is a suitable training option in which the student chooses to study.

Upon completion, the pre-training information is assessed and the outcomes recorded in the Determining Suitability Review. Suggestions are recorded and transferred to the trainer on the training plan.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment

Included in the Determining Suitability Assessment is the Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test. Students will be required to complete the LLN test to determine their level to be able to complete the course or be offered additional support prior to entry into a course. 

For direct entry into the Diploma of Leadership and Management without additional support, the student must achieve a minimum of 85% and 90% in DIC’s DSA.

For direct entry into the Diploma of Leadership and Management with additional support, the student must achieve a minimum of 75%-85% in DIC’s DSA.

Where an individual does not meet either the minimum required 75% in the DSA or a 6.0 (or equivalent in IELTS) the individual will be recommended to undertake an ELICOS course either within DIC or at a provider of their choosing.

The individual is also advised that once they have completed additional English studies, they will be required to re-apply.

Della International College will not enrol an eligible individual where the qualification is at an inappropriate level for that student. In the event that minor gaps* are identified, Della International College will provide the student with support services to enable them to undertake the qualification.

*minor gaps refer to forms of reasonable adjustment that will not compromise the qualification requirements.
