Flexible Learning

Delivered by qualified trainers with long standing experience of all Standards as well as extensive industry experience.

What is Flexible Learning?

Flexible learning is about empowering students by undertaking learning in a way which suits the individual. We do this by giving choice for when and where the learners learn, personalising the process to fit with your needs and lifestyle. For example, flexible learning can be a great option for those working in the healthcare industry without a qualification, or caregivers who cannot attend weekly class schedules. Whilst we acknowledge that flexible learning may not be for everyone, AHT offers a flexible learning program which combines practical skills, tutorials and self-paced learning at home.

 

Benefits of Flexible Learning

  • Continue to Earn While You Learn – one of the most common reasons our students choose our flexible learning program is due to work commitments. You may work full time and are unable to take time off work to go to classes and by undertaking flexible learning, you are able to do both.
  • Flexible Learning Lets You Study from Anywhere – Flexible learning is just that, flexible! You can study at home, on the bus or at our Blackburn campus.
  • Study Whenever You Want, Day or Night - Flexible learning allows a student to study around other commitments at times that suit the individual
  • Trainer access - Students are allocated to a trainer/assessor who will work with them to complete the qualification. You can connect with your trainer by phone, by email or at practical sessions
  • Allows for work-life-learning balance – where and when you study is up to you as long as you are progressing with the course and making contact with your trainer regularly.

How does the Flexible Learning Program Work?

  1. Complete an application form online and have an initial discussion with one of our team members to see if Flexible learning is for you.  Additional application documents will then be sent to you which will include Terms & Conditions which must be agreed to by the student. All enrolment documents must be provided to us a week before the induction.
  2. It is mandatory to attend an Induction session at our Blackburn Campus which is held on the last Tuesday of every month from 12 – 4pm. 
  3. You are allocated a trainer/assessor to guide and support you through your learning journey with us.
  4. Your assessments are sent by your trainer by email for you to print and complete at home with supplementary resources we provide to you. Assessments due dates will be provided by your trainer and must be met in order to progress through the course.
  5. Throughout your flexible learning journey, you are required to book in advance and attend a minimum of 8 practical assessment sessions held every fortnight on a Tuesday at our Blackburn Campus with morning, afternoon and evening options.
  6. Communication is key - your trainer and flexible learning administrator will communicate with you primarily via email. It is expected that you respond to email & phone correspondence within 2 business days.


Common Misconception of Flexible Learning

  • Flexible learning is not a fast track option. It is important to understanding this program is designed to work around your daily routine/working life, not to reduce the duration or provide shortcuts to quality training.
  • Flexible learning is not “Online Learning”.  The majority of correspondence is conducted via email and students get the same resources as students who attend weekly classes. 

 

Realistic Timeframes & Durations

The average duration for students completing a qualification by flexible learning is:

  • between 9 – 12 months for Individual Support, Ageing Support & Disability with a maximum duration of 12 months
  • between 12 - 18 months for Health Services Assistance with a maximum duration of 18 months

 

Pre-placement Criteria

You are required to fulfil your pre-placement criteria responsibilities prior to AHT arranging your practical placement.

  • Satisfactory completion of written assessments
  • Attendance of the 8 practical assessment sessions

 

Practical Placement

  • Practical placement of 120 hours is required.
  • AHT will arrange your practical work placement for you in consultation with industry and your trainer
  • If a student is currently working in the sector you would be required to demonstrate working in the role for 120 hours. This can be done via completion of a Special Consideration form prior to course commencement and providing current payslips, resume and position description that we can verify. This allows students to complete practical activities within their job role.  Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional fees that may apply.
  • Students will be required to wear an All Health Training polo shirt and name badge (both provided) on placement. In addition, long black pants & black closed in, non-slip shoes will be required which students will either need to provide or purchase at their own cost.
