We are subject to a variety of legislation related to training and assessment. Current legislation that affects our operations includes but is not limited to the legislation listed below:
This act, the Anti-Discrimination Act, 1977 promotes equality of opportunity for everyone, protecting them from unfair discrimination and from sexual harassment, as well as other certain associated objectionable forms of conduct.
In particular, the legislation is aimed at protecting the rights of the four target groups such as women; people with a disability; people for non-English speaking backgrounds and people of Aborigine or Torres Strait Island origin
It is not acceptable for any members of staff, or learners to engage in any forms of sexual harassment, and any incidents of this type of behaviour should be reported to, and will be dealt with by the Training Coordinator.
