‘Learner support’ includes any educational and support services that a learner may need to assist them in their training.
Prior to a learner's enrolment or commencement, your RTO needs to identify any additional support required and make the support available to the learner.
At minimum, you should:
- identify any particular requirements such as literacy, numeracy, English language or physical capabilities that learners would need to complete each course, and
- develop strategies to make support available where gaps are identified.
Your RTO must be able to demonstrate how it identifies support needs. For example, you could require learners to complete a self-assessment as part of the enrolment process. You also need to be able to demonstrate that additional support has been made available.
