Overview and Programme Specific Information Page 12


LEARNING AND TEACHING

The programme is divided in 8 - 15 credit courses that are grouped according to the skills

that will be covered. The eight skills areas covered by this programme are: construction

employment skills; construction planning and safety; construction tools and machinery;

grounds maintenance and landscaping; carpentry projects; plumbing and roofing

maintenance; painting, glazing and flooring; and basic electrical maintenance. These skill

areas are relevant to the types of projects that students are likely to face when completing

projects on their local Maraes.

. If students pass the correct unit standards they can also exit with the National Certificate in

Building, Construction and Allied Trades (Level 2) 41 credits and the National Certificate in

Basic Residential Property Maintenance (Level 2) with an optional strand in Basic

construction Project Work. The National Certificate in Basic Residential Property

Maintenance (Level 2) with an optional strand in Basic construction Project Work contains

most of the unit standards required to successfully graduate from the National Certificate in

Building, Construction and Allied Trades (Level 2), so these National Certificates are a good

fit in this programme. The computer and employment skills have been reduced from the

original version of the programme as more emphasis has been placed on the construction

trade skills so the additional National Certificate can be awarded.

ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES

You need to become familiar with the assessment procedures for your courses and this

Programme. Overall Programme procedures are given below. There may also be course

specific assessment procedures and requirements noted in your Course Outlines.

Please note that all activities that contribute towards your final course grades, and therefore

your qualification completion, are known as assessments (summative assessments to be

precise). There are many different types of assessment activities your tutors use in your

courses.

The WelTec Academic Regulations section 7 require that you:



make yourself available to undertake all summative assessment items at the time

and place stipulated by the teaching staff responsible for the course

act with integrity (honesty) during assessments. You are expected to:

o Submit material that is your own original work

o Collaborate only as permitted

o Acknowledge contributions from other sources by using APA reference format

(failure to do this correctly may be regarded as plagiarism)

o Keep written and electronic work secure to prevent others from accessing and

copying work

o Understand the definition of academic dishonesty and the consequences of

breaching the regulations (see Academic Regulations S12 Dishonest Practice).

WelTec conducts assessments within rules set out in the following regulations and policies:

The Academic Regulations 2013

o Examination Rules

o Aegrotat regulations

o Grades

o Results

o Challenging Assessment Decisions

o Dishonest Practice in Assessment

o Appeals

Wellington Institute of Technology - 2013 HV4459 Programme Handbook February 2013

Overview and Programme Specific Information Page 13


Policy 3.05 Assessment Policy

o Definitions

o Guidelines for assessment practice

Policy 3.07 Programme Moderation Policy

o Quality assurance processes before using the assessment activity

o Quality assurance processes after marking to verify marker’s consistency

You may ask your tutors at any time about the quality-assured status of the assessment

activities you are asked to complete.

Assessment Rationale

The courses in this programme are assessed using competency-based methods.

Assessment Schedule

Please refer to your Course Outline for the Assessment Schedule for each of your Courses.

The Schedule will detail the assessment type (test, assignment, presentation, etc), the topic

being assessed, due dates, and if appropriate the weighting. Any other conditions will also

be noted as they apply to the assessments for that course.

Assessment Cover Sheets

A Student Assessment Cover Sheet must be attached to all assessments handed/posted in.

If you’re on campus you can find this form on the Student Intranet:

1. Click on Forms and Documents > Assessment Forms

2. Click on Student Assignment Cover Sheet – ASF007

3. Print off the form.

If you are not on campus you can access them on the WelTec website:

a. Go to the WelTec website: www.weltec.ac.nz.

b. Use the CITRIX link to login to WelTec's intranet (see the A-Z for details)

c. Use instructions 1-3 above to print the cover sheet.

Submitting Assessment And Assignment Work

It is essential that you meet the assessment submission deadlines notified in your Course

Outlines' assessment schedules - unless you have pre-arranged for a late submission with

your tutor. Please refer to your course outlines for any penalties for late submission of

assessments.

Some assessments may have time-related criteria attached to them. Your course outline will

notify you of these particular assessments, and the reasons for the time criteria. Lateness,

absence or early departure from these assessments may carry specific penalties.

Arranging for Late Submission Of Assessments

It is essential that you meet the assessment submission deadlines notified in your Course

Outlines' assessment schedules - unless you have pre-arranged for a late submission with

your tutor. Please refer to your course outlines for any penalties for late submission of

assessments.

Some assessments may have time-related criteria attached to them. Your course outline will

notify you of these particular assessments, and the reasons for the time criteria. Lateness,

absence or early departure from these assessments may carry specific penalties.

Applying For An Extension Beyond The Course End Date

If you are prevented by illness, injury or exceptional circumstances from completing an

assessment by the course end date, you may apply to the Associate Head of School for an

extension to complete the assessment.

Wellington Institute of Technology - 2013 HV4459 Programme Handbook February 2013

Overview and Programme Specific Information Page 14


The application is to be made in writing as soon as possible and not later than 48 hours

before the assessment due time and date. The application is made on the WelTec Course

Extension Form available from the Student Information Centre and the WelTec website.

Where there are valid reasons, the Associate Head of School may grant an extension for a

period of no more than three weeks after the course end date. A longer than three weeks’

extension may be recommended by the Associate Head of School to the Board of Studies'

Achievement Sub-Committee for approval, where there are extenuating circumstances that

justify a longer extension.

Penalty for Unarranged Late Submission

There will be no late submissions without an agreed arrangement.

Assessment Results Notification

Course assessment and final grades are reported using the Grade Key 1 method. Grade

Keys are explained in Appendix 2 of the Academic Regulations.

Once your tutor has marked your assessments you will be notified of your result.

• If the assessment is in the form of a practical in-class demonstration/observation, you are

likely to get your results immediately or shortly after the assessment activity has concluded.

• If the assessment is a supervised test you are able to review your work, but the

assessment is collected and retained by WelTec.

• If you hand in an assignment it is returned to you along with feedback to explain the

reason(s) for the assessment result.

• If you sit a final exam you are able to view your result online at the student results portal:

https://results.weltec.ac.nz within 15 working days.

Results for each assessment are available within 15 working days on WelTec's Student

Results portal at: https://results.weltec.ac.nz.

Use your normal WelTec login and password to access a number of items, such as your

assessment results, current course enrolments, and other details.

Challenging Assessment Decisions

If you have reason to believe that the grade or mark for a particular assessment is incorrect,

you should firstly discuss this with your tutor within five (5) working days of the return of the

assessment.

Your tutor will provide feedback to clarify why the grade or mark has been awarded and

may, if justified, amend the result.

If you still believe that the mark or grade is incorrect, you should discuss the matter with the

Associate Head of School.

For more information on Challenging Assessment Decisions please refer to the WelTec

Academic Regulations 2013 - section 11.

RISK MANAGEMENT, SAFETY AND HEALTH

WelTec students share the responsibility of maintaining a safe and healthy working

environment whether on campus or studying off-site (See Student Code of Conduct, Section

3.4).

ATTENDANCE MATTERS

An objective of study with WelTec is to prepare you for your career in industry. Your attitude,

attendance and behaviour are important. Please give your best effort and ensure your

behaviour and attendance reflect your desire to do well.

Wellington Institute of Technology - 2013 HV4459 Programme Handbook February 2013

Overview and Programme Specific Information Page 15


You should therefore be present on time, fully equipped and, if applicable, dressed and

groomed appropriately for practical sessions.

You are expected to attend all classes and assessments as timetabled. If you are not able to

attend then you should notify your course tutor.

Note that a student on student allowances/living costs who does not:

• meet prescribed attendance requirements, and/or

• disengages in their learning and assessments, and

• does not respond to contact from the institute,

will be notified to Academic Records and Administration. It is your responsibility to inform

StudyLink if you change your study details.

All daytime classes will have a common start time on the hour and must finish by 50 minutes

past the hour, to allow time for students and staff to arrive at their next class on time.

REQUIRED TEXTS

Your Course Descriptors may identify some text books as required, and/or recommended

textbooks. Please refer to your Course Outlines for the most up-to-date edition information.

Textbooks are available for purchase from vicBooks, Wellington, or as specified in the

Course Outlines.

STATIONERY REQUIREMENTS

You are required to provide items, such as stationery, for your study programme. Tutors will

confirm with you where other equipment and/or materials are required for specific courses or

classes.

OFF-SITE PRACTICAL AND WORKPLACE COMPONENTS

Students will have projects to complete on offsite Marae and work experience where they

will be covered by the BPM 3.03 Off-site Components Policy. The offsite projects may

contribute to the summative assessment of courses. All assessment will be carried out by

WelTec staff.

The programme will be based in a Marae environment where Tikanga and Kawa will become

part of normal daily routines. The students will also be involved in Te Reo, Waita / Haka,

Whakapapa, Tiriti o Waitangi. These aspects will not be formally assessed.

INFORMED CONSENT AND CONFIDENTALITY

You will be asked to complete a consent form if your photograph is to be used in any WelTec

literature.

All personal information collected and stored by WelTec is kept confidential.

PROGRAMME EVALUATION

WelTec is interested in the experience students have during their time studying. As well as

informal conversations with students, there are three main surveys available to students to

express their views and rate WelTec services.

Wellington Institute of Technology - 2013 HV4459 Programme Handbook February 2013

Overview and Programme Specific Information Page 16


As a student new to WelTec:

In the first few weeks you will be invited to participate in the WelTec EV1 - First Impressions

survey (www.surveymonkey.com/s/WelTecEV1). This is open to first-time WelTec students,

and asks for your rating of and views about your enrolment experience, the initial in-class

experience, and also your experience of our online resource systems, Moodle or LearnZone.

During your course time:

Your course outline may indicate that your course will have an EV4 - Teacher and Course

Evaluation undertaken towards the end. This helps the Programme Team to improve the

teaching, the course, and the value of the Programme to students. Note: you will need a

specific 'survey event code' supplied by the survey administrator to use the EV4.

At the end of the programme or year:

In the final few weeks of the programme, or year, you will be invited to participate in the EV3

- Student Satisfaction Survey (www.surveymonkey.com/s/WelTecEV3). This asks you about

your overall experience of WelTec's services, the programme, teaching, skills development,

career enhancement, and overall satisfaction.

All WelTec surveys are anonymous; we do not ask you for identification. We do however ask

for some demographic information (age range, sex, enrolment types, ethnicity, etc.) in order

to make sense of trends for particular learner groups.

The outcomes of the surveys are reported as aggregated information and tables to the

WelTec Academic Committee. The reports are also made available to students.

Wellington Institute of Technology - 2013 HV4459 Programme Handbook February 2013
