Flexible Delivery ATi recognises that not all participants learn in the same manner and that with an amount of “reasonable adjustment” participants who may not learn best with traditional learning and assessment methods will still achieve good results. Reasonable adjustment is the process of adjusting our intended methods of learning and assessment to accommodate the unique requirements of our clients yet remaining within the constraints of the training package. Harassment Discrimination ATi is required under Australian Law to ensure that we provide a workplace and training environment that is free from all forms of harassment and discrimination including victimisation and bullying so that all staff and students feel valued respected and are treated fairly.
