Specific needs and LLN reasonable adjustment:

Student(s) participating in training may have specific needs. Where these needs are identified before the enrolment process the Fire Alert will explore the options available to the student through the training and assessment. These may include but not limited to students with language, literacy and/or numeracy problems, or disabilities.

A certain level of language, literacy and numeracy requirements are needed to undertake this course. Specifically, students would need the ability to: Prepare a written incident report or provide information to enable preparation of an incident report (e.g. a first aid report); Communicate effectively and assertively in an incident; Use literacy and numeracy skills as required to read, interpret and apply guidelines and protocols.

Students also require appropriate level of senses (hearing, vision, and smell) to make accurate reports, check for dangers and apply appropriate injury management strategies.

If a person with specific needs meets essential entry requirements, Fire Alert will work with the student to make “reasonable adjustments” necessary for that student to perform their coursework.

These reasonable adjustments may include:

  • Changing methods of how assessment is conducted, in order achieve desired competency whilst still adhering to required performance and/or knowledge evidence required such as verbal recorded assessment rather than written.
  • Changing course delivery. For example, providing study notes or research materials in different formats (larger font, different font colour, black and white images etc…);
