Equality in opportunities to participate in learning

Under the Australian Disability Standards for Education (2005) providers and TASC ensure that all students are afforded substantive equality in opportunities to participate in learning experiences and complete assessment and certification requirements.

With reference to the legal requirements of the Standards, course providers might:

  • advise learners of the possibility and implications of not being able to meet all course requirements
  • provide learners with alternative learning and assessment procedures and, at the same time, maintain the constraints and spirit of the assessment requirements
  • counsel learners into suitable courses
  • allow learners more time or assistance to show what they know and can do.
