Course Delivery Methods
Port Vila University understands that people learn in different ways. Our approach to training is structured, yet the method of delivery can be flexible, allowing people from different backgrounds and with different abilities to still participate and get the most out of their training experience with us. Our dedicated Trainers are committed to work with each student individually to ensure the best possible learning outcomes. To support our inclusive training structure, we offer courses via E-Learning.
Flexible Delivery is based upon an online training platform providing a quality interactive training experience to participants, this allows students to study in their own time and at their own pace, and submitting assessments to the University when they are ready for assessment. Flexible Delivery is a true blended approach to training and assessment, reducing inconvenience to students, whilst allowing students the opportunity to gain valuable qualifications.
All courses are delivered online via our Learner Management System (LMS) allowing students to study in their own time and at their own pace yet having support from a nominated mentor.
Participants can select their assessment methodology in conjunction with their nominated assessor. Assessments can comprise of questioning, assignments written submissions and a final thesis or workplace assessment (two days’ assessment in the student’s workplace)
Many students feel that a final workplace assessment of their skills in their workplace provides a more relaxed yet valid form of assessment
Recognition of Prior Learning
Port Vila University offer RPL in all qualifications:
What is RPL?
RPL is a form of assessment that recognises skills and knowledge gained through either formal training, work experience or life experience. If you are doing the job now you most likely have the skills already to earn a qualification.
What will it cost me?
Refer to our course brochures for price lists
How am I Assessed!
All assessments are submitted on line
What is a Credit Transfer (CT)?
Credit transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for components of a qualification previously undertaken / awarded.
Simply said RPL recognises prior learning and experience, whereas CT recognises formal qualifications.
How do I apply for Credit?
Students when enrolling on a course will be asked if they wish to claim credit transfer (CT) or recognition of prior learning (RPL), if you wish to claim credit (either RPL or CT) you will need to provide evidence at enrolment, i.e. Resume, Job Descriptions, References, Copies of Prior qualifications etc.
Your assessor will work with you to document your application, to ensure credit is granted where available.
Can I claim 100% Credit?
Yes, you can, all you need to do is enrol on a course and submit copies of your evidence to your allocated assessor, and we have an electronic credit procedure that documents the credit application process, making the process less stressful and enjoyable.
