Certified education is the efforts taken delivering the reward on completion, or the conveyance of yet another expense given by the Treasury department.
One can review the efforts as an individual put into obtaining a diploma or certification, their persistence, time, satisfaction and added opportunity as the outright aim given with such documentation.
These benefits in reflection we all hope to achieve.
Diplomas can range from one and half years to five years plus and certifications with some possible obtained whilst still at school, others in full or part-time courses ranging from three months up to 4 years plus.
The costs involved in obtaining documentation of these sorts can range from AU$1,000 est. to AU$10,000 est. or more.
Such additionally may require licensing via the treasury department furthermore costing AU$500.00 give or take.
For some this is a natural course taken on completion of schooling leap boarding through into Tafe and or University.
Others on the other hand whom leave school early in pursuit of business adventure and or early work entry via reasons that may or may not consist of lacking of the education system, individual advancement (self taught), family and or just for various financial reasons, generally have to pursue further education down the track.
What makes classroom learning difficult in reliving, other than the pressure to pass the final exams and skill tests?
The turnaround can be a little daunting of anyone where circumstances consist of reliving a classroom environment practically as the older student.
Then there is the style of teaching were most students would not be lucky enough to have teachers that are user-friendly and make education entertaining, but rather in percentage more lean toward the sterile environment consisting of tedious styles of teaching.
People have allot going on in their life’s, with such conflicting mentally in continual thought during this added state of education being introduced giving added pressure in maintaining the attention needed via such teachings.
More often than not in speaking to students of further academic education the given response most consistent in saying is “the class is boring and the teachers style is dull”, “the environment is just that, sterile”.
In observation of teachings, the most productive styles taken are positively reflected teachings, personal experiences wrapped throughout the subjected teaching, involved hands-on demonstrations segmented throughout, class involvement of personal experiences and discussions that others may relate to, rather than what is in form a disassociation of activity.
Moving into the subject at hand is education updates, these sometimes authorized not only via Deweer, but also that of the Treasury Department, thus operated currently by Wayne Swann – Labor Party Australia.
In review abnormalities have arisen that one’s efforts in seeking further education may have been in vain.
As it turns out and to be expected coming from the treasury departments continue revenue generation efforts, one must re-run this classroom environment procedure in good portion.
This I found is a must every three years in maintaining updated segments associated to the industry documents one holds via mapping being purchased.
Now some may say, “Well that is to be expected”, but is it?, no date range is indicated on such documents aka diplomas and or certifications, no follow-up is given in general to this requirement.
Getting technical this can take as long as 5 years before a student could even become aware of the need for mapping their documents, generally via an unrelated institute when seeking additional documentation.
Looking into this further the Treasury department and or Deweer can change the diploma or certification training package name, meaning packages prior have now superseded and cancelled out of any value by it replacement.
Certain training packages can be updated and or replaced annually, thus only giving a grace period of three months for prior valued documents with mapping for realignment.
The abnormality toppling this whole process taken by the Treasury department and Deewer in continual change of these packages is an overlap by training institutes still in perception of prior packages.
Further investigation into the matter produced a technical issue that can not only be an expense to the individual investor, but also that of the governments early school leavers further education program.
The Case Study:
Training Course: Cert III Hospitality
Training Package: THH33002
Training Credit AU$3,500 est. (Government Purchase)
Period of Course: 3 Months Full-time
Start Date: Estimated 29th June 2008
Completion Date: 29th September 2008
Superseded by Package: SIT30707
Pre-release Date: March 2008
Primary Release Date: 6 June 2008 sourced at NTIS
Now reviewing these dates and periods between these course packages one could see that the original package THH33002 become superseded by SIT30707 prior to the course even stating.
Taking in account of the grace period of value in training given, the course being paid for by government and ones only Certification III credit, this course was voided by the Treasury department prior to completion.
What does this mean for the individual?
- The loss of work opportunities for five years plus, without any awareness until the time of renewing RSA.
- Possible discrimination, with awareness of others, depicting one to be forwarding false credentials.
- Embarrassment and self dignity of holding valueless documentation.
- Additional depression related stress of having to furthermore re-live a mapping classroom scenario.
- Loss of time, career progression and financial income associated with doing the course and thereafter.
What does this mean for the government?
- Cost of course, a wasted investment.
- Embarrassment of authorizing course already superseded.
- Financial gain in mapping, period turnarounds in renewal of certified documents and licensing.
This is not only greedy of a government to continually hit to hip pocket of industry workers and employers alike, but also is purely negligence on their part of process, thus in examining related course updates, prior to approval.
This case scenario clearly would indicate valid legal opportunity by the student, in reflection of loss and personal stress partaken over the whole process.
Once again educational practices in process fail to meet the needs of the civilian public.
