CPEE policies describe in clear language what must be done. CPEE policies are broadly structured into two types, namely academic and operational. Academic policies are inclusive of academic program, teaching and learning and research/scholarship areas and related functions of CPEE. Operational policies are inclusive of all administrative and management functions of CPEE.
CPEE procedures and processes describe how things outlined in policies must be done. CPEE procedures and processes support CPEE policies and are directions or instructions that describe in fuller detail how particular actions should be carried out. They invariably include flowcharts that provide clear direction about sequence
This Policy outlines CPEE’s response to a Critical Incident, being to ensure that each incident is managed effectively with the safety of all concerned priority during an incident and in the period immediately following an incident. This policy also includes ongoing and/or long-term management considerations related to the impact of such an incident.
The majority of units require students to complete an end of semester examination as part of their formal assessment. Students enrolled into these units are automatically registered for the examination following the completion of the semester enrolment/re-enrolment form.
Students are to nominate an examination venue ID with each semester enrolment.
The CPEE seeks to demonstrate high standards of teaching, learning, scholarship and related activities to its stakeholders through external referencing including benchmarking. Benchmarking, peer review and moderation help inform planning and goal setting for improvements, through the identification of comparative strengths and weaknesses in CPEE Programs, Units and student achievement. It also enables the CPEE to evaluate its performance, monitor standards and make improvements to ensure the ongoing quality of learning opportunities and standards of CPEE Units, Programs and Awards.
The CPEE grading system consists of three parts. The first set is the final grades awarded to a student as a result of study undertaken during a semester. CPEE uses a Criterion-Referenced System for awarding such grades where students are evaluated against an absolute scale. The second set is interim grades which indicate where a student is undertaking further assessment prior to being awarded a final grade in a Unit. The third set relates to grades awarded for study undertaken external to CPEE or for recognition of prior learning.
This Policy establishes the requirements for Award eligibility and conferral. Award programs may be presented at graduation ceremonies. Ceremonies will be an optional event. Non-award programs are not to be conferred at graduation ceremonies.
This guideline for students in CPEE programs adds further clarity to the definition of plagiarism, the consequences of committing plagiarism and examples of how to avoid committing plagiarism including collusion. The definition of plagiarism provided by Collins Dictionary (n.d.) is, “Plagiarism is the practice of using or copying someone else's idea or work and pretending that you thought of it or created it”
Surveys typically involve human research and ethical approval is required for all research undertaken by CPEE students that involves any human research. Human research is defined here as research conducted with or about people, their data, and/or their tissue. People can be involved in research by taking part in surveys or interviews, or focus groups.
These Guidelines outline how the CPEE is able to employ the use of alternative methods for assessing the performance of a student with a disability or medical condition. The Guidelines apply where that student is unable, because of disability or medical condition, to undertake the same assessment in the same manner as other students. CPEE offers reasonable adjustments to assessment that do not impose unjustifiable hardship on the CPEE.
This request form is to be completed prior to the start date of each semester in the event that you wish to purchase a printed version of the unit/s study notes to complement the primary electronic version.
Ethical approval is required for all human research. Human research is defined here as research conducted with or about people, their data, and/or their tissue. People can be involved in research by taking part in surveys or interviews, or focus groups. If the CPEE Work Based Project or Industry Research involves human research, a student must apply for ethics approval, and must not begin any research activity until approval is received.
This Guideline complements the CPEE Student Code of Conduct and the CPEE Student Misconduct Management Procedure and must be read in conjunction with them. The CPEE adopts a preventative approach to plagiarism by ensuring that all students and Unit Chairs are aware of the need to avoid plagiarism and the grave consequences of deliberate plagiarism.
The purpose of procedure is to ensure that students who are enrolled in CPEE programs meet the requirements for satisfactory progression towards graduation.
This Procedures outlined in this document ensure that CPEE recognises and provides flexible pathways for entry to its Units and Programs. The Procedure also ensures that students who are admitted possess the potential to succeed in their studies. Entry will be granted at the appropriate level with the opportunity for students to progress to the next academic level. The default entry level shall be at the Single Unit level.
This form is to be used by CPEE students who have completed their final unit of study or are at the beginning of their final semester of study who wish to inform CPEE of their intent to graduate with an Award.
CPEE grants Awards on the basis of merit to students who have satisfied all requirements of the Award in which they are enrolled. After CPEE Council confers and grants awards, testamurs and academic transcripts will be posted to students after to the Graduation Ceremony, if they do not wish to attend the ceremony.
