Please notify us as soon as possible of any changes to your contact details. Please note that updating your contact information in the eLearning site or student portal does not update on your student file so you will need to advise us either in email or by calling.
While collaboration with your peers is allowed for the planning of your assessment tasks, you must ensure that your answers and the assessment documents produced for submission are your own work. You must not copy from your peers or directly off the internet.
When asked to conduct research as part of forming your responses to assessment questions, you must cite the source(s) from which you gather your information. Note: Our trainers check for plagiarism using online tools, all they have to do is type in a couple of short phrases from your assessment and hit search. As simple as that! Assessments received that have been largely completed by internet searching will not be marked and sent back to the student for a second resubmission within 14 days. The student may also receive disciplinary action from MAT.
If you have any concerns about completing any part of the assessment (including literacy and/or numeracy concerns), please talk to your assessor before you start.

Here at MAT we pride ourselves on our Student Support. We have a dedicated student support team that is ready to help you when/if you need it.

Our student support team can be contacted on Ph: 1300 887 082 or email: email@example.com
Due dates are listed on the student portal training schedule and on the unit enrolment listed on the learning management system. Please submit your unit on or before this date.
Assessments are marked in the order they are received and generally within 10 business days of submission date. To receive a satisfactory result for the assessments, participants must fully complete all sections of the assessment for the unit to the required standard.
Each assessment task has a section for the Assessor to record the assessment outcome as either “Satisfactory” or “Not Satisfactory”. For you to be awarded a competent result for the unit of competency, you must complete all assessment tasks satisfactorily.
Assessors must ensure that feedback is provided to you after each assessment, this may include asking you to reconsider some of your answers to the submitted responses and/or advice to broaden your understanding of the assessment task.
Once an assessment decision has been made for the unit of competency, the Assessor will complete the unit by recording either a “Competent” or “Not Competent” result.
