SUPPORT AND RECOGNITION
These qualifications have been designed in collaboration with centers that currently offer, or plan to offer, Business and Enterprise programs at this level.
Assessment for the mandatory units involves externally set assignments, which are internally marked by the center and then moderated by LRN. For the optional modules, assessment is conducted through externally set assignments, which are externally assessed and moderated by LRN.
LRN qualifications are assessed at the unit level, with no overall grade for the Diploma. Candidates can access the qualification through a modular approach if suitable. Assessments are based on the published learning outcomes and assessment and grading criteria, which centers are expected to provide to candidates. Each unit will be graded as pass or fail.
A pass is awarded when all outcomes meet the specified assessment criteria. Candidates who receive a ‘fail’ must wait at least three months before retaking the assessment, ensuring sufficient time has passed for them to improve their knowledge.
Upon successfully completing the LRN Level 5 Diploma in Business and Enterprise or LRN Level 5 Extended Diploma in Business and Enterprise, candidates have various progression opportunities. They may advance to:
– Other qualifications at the same level, such as transitioning from a Diploma to an Extended Diploma
– Other qualifications at or above the next level, such as a Level 6 Certificate or Diploma in Business, or a Business Degree
– Employment in a middle management position
MODE OF DELIVERY
LRN does not specify a mode of delivery for the LRN Level 5 Diploma in Business and Enterprise or LRN Level 5 Extended Diploma in Business and Enterprise qualifications. Centers can employ any mode of delivery that accommodates candidates’ needs, such as full-time, part-time, evening-only, or distance learning. Regardless of the chosen mode of delivery, centers must ensure that candidates engage in a teaching program tailored to the requirements of the qualification.
