The recruitment of high quality learners is crucial to the supply of high quality teachers and lifesavers and to the continued success of Triton Training. This policy details Triton Training’s approach to the recruitment of learners.
Triton Training must check that the learners attending courses are who they say they are (Learner existence) and that they meet the entry requirements (Learner eligibility) in accordance with regulations set in place by the relevant awarding body for the qualification being taken. The eligibility and existence of all learners on a course must be established at the start of their programme. Learner Existence Identification should be photographic, however sometimes this is not possible. Please refer to the list below which are examples of identification Triton Training deem acceptable:
- Driving license
- ID card or other form of national ID
- National Insurance Card
- Photographic security pass for current place of employment
- Armed Forces service ID
- Birth certificate (and corresponding marriage certificate if applicable)
Triton Training will accept all of the above forms of identification as acceptable, the above list is examples and not exhaustive.
At Triton Training we believe that good inductions are vital in ensuring learners feel safe, informed and included as well as making sure that accurate information on the expectations and tutor/learner responsibilities are understood.
This policy applies to all learners who enrol onto a course with Triton Training. All new learners are required to participate in a learner induction either in person or via live online platform prior to the first day of their chosen course. All facets of the Triton Training are introduced to the new learners at this time.
This policy applies to all learners who enrol onto a course programme with Triton Training. It details our commitment to making sure that every learner is working toward an appropriate programme of learning that has been discussed and agreed based on a thorough initial assessment.
All learners should undertake a period of initial assessment. The learner is at the centre of the process and it should fully engage them. It is a holistic process that takes place prior to the learner starting their course and may consist of (but not exclusive to) self-assessment activities, questionnaires, professional discussions, review of prior achievements, and appraisal of written, numerical and verbal tasks. The purpose is to ensure that collectively, initial assessment activities build up a picture of a learner’s current position and learning needs in relation to their chosen course.
Triton Training will offer appropriate support to those learners that require adjustments and considerations during their learning and assessment whilst ensuring the integrity of the qualification.
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a process to prevent learners from being assessed repeatedly for knowledge, skills or understanding that they already have. It will allow those involved in swimming teaching and lifesaving that already have the knowledge, skills or understanding, gained from continuous learning that may have occurred over a number of years or hours, to achieve the qualification without having to complete a course.
This Policy is designed to assist Triton Training as an Approved Training Centre with developing a simple process for recognising a prior achievements and/or experience.
