First Aid Each Academy carries a first aid kit to treat minor injuries. Please contact the Academy First Aider for assistance. The First Aider will be named on the student notice board.

General Health and Fitness We recommend that you undertake regular exercise. Being fit will assist you academically and with gaining employment as many employers believe that staff who are fit are less likely to be regularly absent on sick leave.

You need to take proof of your residential address with you – this could be a letter or bill addressed to you.

Student feedback enables us to ensure your expectations are being met and that continuous improvement occurs. These evaluations occur on the same day for all students at all academies. Other forms of student evaluation and feedback also occur which will be explained during induction. As well as giving this feedback during your course, you may also be contacted approximately six and twelve weeks after completion so that NZMA can evaluate the relevance of your training in your workplace.

NZMA Programme Information 2012


Administration What is not malpractice? Students are not committing malpractice if: • They discuss assignments, projects and any course material with others – this is a valid and useful way to learn. •

One assessment is submitted for a group if this is allowed by the assessment.

• Work is handed in for which the student has received some assistance from a person approved by the tutor. Tutor’s action  on finding malpractice When a tutor has clear evidence of malpractice they are to report it to the Academy Manager. They are to arrange a time with the student and the Academy Manager and present the evidence. The student is entitled to bring a support person and will be informed of appeals procedures. If malpractice is found, a description in writing is sent to the Director, International Business or the Director, Domestic Students as appropriate. If the finding is upheld, the student will fail the assessment on this occasion, and will be required to re-sit the complete assessment again. A final written warning will be issued, and any repeated instance of malpractice may result in immediate expulsion, as outlined in number 15 of the Rules and Regulations.

Disciplinary Procedures Where there is a breach of course rules, disciplinary procedures that apply both at NZMA training academies and work experience situations are: •

The first stage is a formal verbal warning from the Academy Manager. This warning will be recorded on the student’s confidential file  and  the student will be requested to sign an acknowledgement that the warning has been given.

• The second stage is a formal written warning. This warning will also be recorded on the student’s confidential file and the student will be requested to sign an acknowledgement that the warning has been given. •

The third stage is the final written warning. This warning will be recorded on the student’s confidential file and the student will be requested to sign an acknowledgement that the warning has been given.

The final stage is your expulsion from the course and NZMA.

Notes:

18

If you are unable to receive a warning because you are absent from the course, then the warning is considered to have been received if sent by mail to your last known address.

The Academy Manager or Management may go straight to a final written warning, or immediately expel a student, where breaches of rules 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20 are considered to be of a very serious nature.

Management may, at its discretion, dismiss a student who does not demonstrate a willingness to learn by the end of the second week of the course. This step is taken only after consultation with the student and tutors concerned.

Expelled students are not entitled to a refund of their tuition fees.

ACADEMIC NZMA Diploma Level 5 & 6 (BTEC) NZMA’s Auckland Central academy offers the Diploma in Business levels 5 and 6 and the Diploma in Hospitality Management levels 5 and 6. They are new UK based qualifications with staircasing opportunities to many universities worldwide. They are approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). The qualifications are awarded by Edexcel (Business and Technology Education Council), which is the UK’s largest awarding body offering academic and vocational qualifications and testing to schools, colleges, employers and other places of learning in the UK and internationally. The aims of the Diplomas are to provide:

19

Education and training for a range of careers in business and hospitality management.

Opportunities for learners to focus on the development of higher level skills in a business context.

Opportunities for learners to develop a range of skills, techniques and attributes essential for successful performance in working life.

Opportunities for learners to gain a nationally and internationally recognized vocationally specific qualification to enter employment in business or progress to higher education such as a full time degree in business or a related area.

Administration Equal Opportunities and Fair Access to Assessments (City & Guilds and BTEC) The Equal Opportunities and Fair Access to Assessments policy applies to all students enrolled on the City & Guilds and BTEC programmes. Any student registered for the City & Guilds or BTEC examinations receives information about the equality of opportunity and fair access to assessment policy of the above organisations. In this  policy,  the  term  ‘access’  refers  to  candidates’  access  to  the  range  of  assessment   opportunities needed to satisfy the requirements of the qualification standards. ‘Fair  assessment’  refers  to  the  fair  treatment  of  all  candidates  so  that  they  are  afforded  the   best opportunity to demonstrate their competence on an assessment. A full copy of this policy is available in the library and on NZMA Live.

Assessment (City & Guilds and BTEC) All assessments are competency based. Students are assessed against specific learning outcomes and criteria for each unit. Three different grading criteria are applied in each unit: pass, merit and distinction.

The National Qualifications Framework The National Qualifications Framework (NQF) established by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is based on unit standards. A unit standard describes in detail what you need to know, or be able to do, to achieve competency in the knowledge and/or skill set covered by that unit standard. A unit standard is assigned a level, which ranges from 1 to 10. NZMA business and hospitality courses cover unit standards from level 2 (introductory certificate) to level 5 (diploma). A unit standard is divided into elements - each of which contains details of what you need to know or do to achieve competency. When you have mastered all the elements and have been assessed as competent, you have then gained credit for the unit standard. Each element contains performance criteria (PCs). These spell out the various standards to which you must carry out each element and hence the unit standard.

Example of an Element: From Unit Standard 497: Element 1

Protect Health and Safety in the workplace Recognise statutory rights and responsibilities

Performance Criteria 1.1 Requirements are identified as they apply to employees under the Health and Safety in Employment Act. 1.2

20

Rights are identified as they apply to employees under the Health and Safety in Employment Act.

In the early part of the course your tutors will spend time explaining and demonstrating the use of terms. When you are carrying out an assessment and you are not sure what you have to  do,  don’t  hesitate  to  ask  your  tutor.   Once a month, NZMA sends details of the unit standards that you have gained to NZQA to be entered on your National Record of Learning. Your course fees include the $1.55 charge per credit which is paid to NZQA. You must be registered on the National Student Index (NSI) for your achievements to be added to your Record of Learning. If you are not registered with the NSI, or hooked on with NZQA, we will automatically do this for you and pay the $25 fee on your behalf.

21

NZMA Programme Information 2012


Administration Please note: • You may already be registered on the NSI, either from a previous training provider or from school. If so, you need to supply your NSI number so that the units you gain will be added to your personal record at NZQA. Students may request a copy of their National Record of Learning from NZQA. This will show any units completed and gained in the previous calendar year.  NZQA may charge a fee for this.

Cross Credit Procedures You may already have gained unit standards from another programme in school or with another training provider. You may not have to be re-assessed in units gained even if they are in your NZMA course (this only applies to unit standards gained and reported to NZQA.) We will print out your NZQA Record of Learning to confirm the units have been completed. Depending on the NZMA programme of enrolment, selected unit standards may be integrated with other unit standards you may not have completed, necessitating the need for reassessment. At the time of enrolment you will be informed whether you will require reassessment in any units.

Recognition of Current Competency If you believe that you are already competent in what is required for a particular unit standard (say in a previous course or job) then you may qualify for Recognition of Current Competency (RCC). Your Student Advisor has details of what is involved in this process.

Course Credits and Certificates Students earn  credits  progressively  throughout  their  course  for  which  each  Student’s  Course   Planner is continually updated. Credits are advised to NZQA each month and students receive a copy of their final Academic Record on completion of the course. Successfully completed students receive an NZMA Certificate and Academic Record which lists all unit standard credits achieved throughout the course. Once advised to NZQA these credits become part of the Student’s Record of Learning.

National Qualifications The unit standards for which you gain credit build towards National Qualifications, which are either National Certificates or National Diplomas. Some unit standards can count towards more than one National Qualification. The credits that you gain at NZMA may qualify you for a National Qualification. NZMA Registry will apply for the National Qualification that is part of your course to NZQA. The cost of the certificate is included in your course costs.

22

NZMA Programme Information 2012


Administration Unit Standards Assessment Whilst training at NZMA you will be assessed against unit standards/modules. Each assessment will state the content of the unit or units, the elements being assessed and the performance criteria. Some performance criteria have what is called a range statement. Either all or the specified amount of items in the range statement must be assessed. If you are not sure about any aspect of a particular assessment, please ask your tutor to explain. You have an NZMA academic record for each area of your course. When you have all the elements in a specific unit standard you will have gained credit for that unit. If a skill is common to two or more unit standards, you are only required to complete the given activity for that  skill  once.    This  is  known  as  “cross  crediting”.  

Endorsement of Certificates NZMA has two levels of achievement when you gain your qualification – Pass or Pass with Distinction. To gain a Pass with Distinction you must meet all the criteria as outlined below:

1. 90% attendance at completion of course

2. Successful completion of all unit standards in each 5-week module within the allocated 5-week period

3. No disciplinary action has been taken

4. The desired level of dress and appearance requirements have been met

Your NZMA certificate will be endorsed with either a Pass or a Pass with Distinction, however your NZQA certificate will not be endorsed it will only show the qualification that you have gained.

Replacement Certificates In the event that you reapply for an NZMA or NZQA certificate because you have misplaced your previous copy, you will be charged $15 per certificate.

Work Experience and Commercial On-site Training Some NZMA courses include on-site work experience, which is a great opportunity for you to try out the skills that you have been developing while operating in a real-life environment (normally you will not receive any additional funding for this work experience). Please remember that you are not only receiving an excellent personal opportunity, but are also representing NZMA. As such, you are still subject to the NZMA regulations as well as any other advised by your host company. In order for you to undertake work experience, you must achieve at least the minimum standard in academic study which will be explained to you by your tutor. NZMA reserves the right to postpone your work experience period until you reach that standard.

Activities NZMA expects you to actively participate in all off-site activities that are organised. These activities are organised for your benefit and are a part of your course of study.

NZMA Programme Information 2012


Administration SUBMISSION POLICY Assessment Deadlines Students must submit assessments according to the date specified by their tutor. Assessments submitted after the due date will not be accepted for marking. In cases where an assessment deadline had been missed, the student will be considered as remedial.

Extensions Where there is a legitimate need, extensions may be granted by the tutor under the following conditions: •

An extension is applied for in writing two days before the due date

•

Absence approval form has been approved by tutor and Academy Manager for the due date

Resubmissions* NZMA has an assessment policy where a student may have three attempts to reach competency (BTEC: pass/ higher grade) for an assessment. * Resubmissions do not apply to City & Guilds Assessments

Incomplete Assignments/Assessments Should a student not reach competency or pass following three attempts, they will need to re-submit the entire assessment the next time it is being assessed. There are two categories of re-submission - remedial and repeat students In order to be eligible for the remedial category, a student must have 80% attendance and show competency in 80% of the term learning outcomes and criteria.

Remedial Remedial students may progress onto the next term, however it is mandatory for the student to attend scheduled remedial sessions. These sessions are scheduled outside of normal class hours. Remedial students must complete and submit any outstanding assessments from the previous term according to the date set by the assessor. If the assessment is not completed as specified then the remedial student will be categorised as repeat.

Repeat If the student does not meet the remedial conditions then they will be required to re-enrol for the incomplete term when it is next offered. Repeat students will have to pay the full tuition fees for that term. It is at the discretion of the tutor/assessor, in consultation with the Academy Manager, whether a further attempt will be allowed. There will be charges applicable for this further attempt. Student Services will advise the repeating student of the charges applicable.

Assessment Appeal Process NZMA has an Assessment Appeal Process available to you, should you be dissatisfied with the result of an assessment. In the first instance, the appeal should be raised with your tutor, and then with the Academy Manager who will refer the matter to the Central Academic Team (CAT). The CAT will make an unbiased decision, the results of which will be forwarded to you, your tutor and Academy Manager. If you are still not satisfied with the result of the appeal, you may register a further appeal with the NZMA Director of International Business. 24
