4. Duration of the course 

Most students complete their classroom program over nine months. However PSF can tailor the program so you can either fast-track the course or extend it. Your enrolment is valid for a total of two years. 

 Your timetable for the course includes the following: 

  • Remote Induction Program: 2 days working from home under the Guidance of our Trainer. Compulsory. 
  • 31 CLASSROOM DAYS – normally scheduled one day per week over 9 months unless fast tracking.

  • There are two x two-day workshops throughout the course. The first two day will be held remotely where you will work from home under the guidance of our trainer. 

It is strongly recommended that students practice their floristry designs in their own time. This will enhance the learning experience and increase the ability of the students.

6. Protection of your fees if you have pre-paid your course. 

If you have pre-paid your student fees you are protected by PSF in the rare event that we are no longer able to deliver SFL30115 Certificate III in Floristry. This is called Tuition Assurance.  In accordance with “Clause 7.3 of the ASQA Standards for RTO’s 2015 – Protecting pre-paid fees by students”, PSF hold an unconditional financial guarantee from WESTPAC BANK to cover at least the amount of prepaid fees in excess of $1500 for any student.  Pearsons have structured the Bank Guarantee so that our Accountants can refund students’ prepaid fees (in excess of $1500) in circumstances where your RTO is no longer able to deliver the training and assessment and no alternate training option is available. For example, you may have an arrangement where an independent party has authority to access the guarantee. Refer to the Pearsons Statement of Tuition Assurance 

 

7.  Missing a class: 

 We recommend that you attend all classes as scheduled. Variations to a student’s timetable are LIMITED to TWO PER STUDENT. However, if this is not possible your options are:

If you sit an Assessment and are deemed ‘Not yet satisfactory’ or you miss an assessment due to absence for any reason, you will be given another opportunity to sit an assessment (maximum of 3 attempts) as follows: 

  •  In the Adjustment time on the day of the Assessment

All Certificate III students can attend four (4) x 3 hour self-paced tutorials sessions throughout their course.

At Pearsons School of Floristry, we endeavour to support students with Special Learning Needs. Any special learning needs or medical conditions/physical impairments must be disclosed to PSF prior to your enrolment so an assessment can be made as to whether any reasonable adjustments need to be made to your study program.  

A meeting will be organised with the student and the school to determine the best way to respond to specific learning needs, and to discuss the suitability of the course for you. This might involve Private Tuition, taking a class more than one time, reading material prior to attending a class or having a support person present in the classroom. These arrangements will be put in place on an individual basis and might incur extra cost to the student. Our aim is to provide a supportive learning environment for all students. 

Once you have commenced your program, if it is identified that you require additional support, PSF will contact you to arrange a meeting to discuss your options. Additional fees may apply to cover this support.

     If the course has been PREPAID 

    • You have two years to complete all clusters so to re-join the course simply contact us to discuss your study program. There will be no additional fees unless you repeat classes, undertake Private tuition session, or you need to transition to a new training package. 
    •  If no refund has been issued, and you would like to complete the course over a longer period of time, additional fees may apply subject to the current course costs at that time. Note: you may be required to repeat some elements of the course if your skills are no longer current or the course structure changes. There will be fees incurred with this.

    However if you have deferred MID-CLUSTER, and had a considerable break from any floristry, it may be best for you to repeat some classes so you feel confident to continue the course.  This may be the best learning experience for you.  You will only be charged the FLOWER FEE for classes you repeat.
