Policies and Guidelines

Imagine Education has provided a detailed portfolio of policies and processes in the BSB50207 Diploma of Business Assignment Handbook. It is advised that students consult this document before discussing any issue with your trainer.


When you use information in your Assessments from other sources (such as text books, journals or internet articles) you need to source where you found the information. Please see the ‘Referencing Guide’ in your Assignment Handbook for more details. For this unit all work must be accurately reference below every question that you answer. Care must be taken when using material from the web to ensure that the information has come from a credible source such as journals, news organisations and government websites. While Wikipedia, or other online encyclopaedias, are a valuable reference tool; however, it is not appropriate to use this material as source material.


If you use work from other sources without referencing where you found the source, you are plagiarising. Plagiarism is very serious as it is stealing words from another source, and claiming it as your own work. Referencing or sourcing your information is therefore vital Please ensure you fully source where you found your information and follow the ‘Referencing Guide’ in your Assignment Handbook.

Plagiarism can include:

  • Copying another student’s work
  • Copying work from a text or source of information without referencing

At Imagine Education we take plagiarism seriously. If you plagiarise work, or you give your work to a peer to copy you will have been deemed to have failed the assessment and will be required to face an academic panel to determine if your enrolment should be cancelled.

There are two outcomes from the academic panel:

  1. The students’ enrolment is cancelled
  2. The student will re enroll and pay for the required units. The student will be required to complete these units under the supervision of a College trainer.

Competency-based Assessment

Competency-based assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgments about whether or not the student has the knowledge and skills to meet the performance criteria required in the workplace – such as the student’s ability to use workplace equipment competently.

With this type of assessment the student will be given more than one opportunity to gain competency in particular units of competency or learning outcomes. Students will be required to demonstrate their skill at least three times in order to be deemed competent.


Feedback will only be issued to the student using the Imagine Education Australia “Student Feedback Form”. The Student Feedback Form will signal to the student that they are Competent (C) or Not-Yet-Competent (NYC) in this unit. As stated above student will be given more than one opportunity to gain competency and the Student Feedback Form will provide direction on what is required to demonstrate competency if the assessment is deemed NYC.

The Student Feedback Form will record all of the assessment pieces linked to the unit. Feedback is to be given for any Assessment with an attached Assessment Cover Sheet that is submitted by a student. If a student submits more than one Assessment at a time for a unit, one Student Feedback Form can be returned to the student outlining feedback for each individual Assessment.

Students also have the opportunity to provide feedback on the units delivered by completing unit feedback forms and returning it to your Trainer.

Submitting assessment

All assessment must be submitted with this Assessment Cover Sheet attached. The Trainer or Assessor can ask the student to resubmit the assessment after the due date until the student is deemed Competent. It is the responsibility of the student to retain a copy of the assessment.

The Project Team Meeting


  • To ensure the success of the project you will need to hold project team meetings at various stages throughout the project. As the Project Manager your role would include being the chairperson of these meetings. In order for the meetings to be effective they will need to be organised and managed. Part of this process involves creating specific documentation. Your task is to create the documentation for a hypothetical meeting that could be held at any stage of the project, including planning, administering, monitoring and reviewing, or finalising the project. Templates for the agenda and minutes of the meeting are available on the student drive.

1. Notice of meeting EMAIL – Date on Email must be date of submission

  • Statement of meeting’s purpose :generally found at top of agenda and is the reason for the meeting being held.
  • Date, time & location of meeting: also found at top of agenda, the date, time and location of the actual meeting.
  • Welcome: the chairperson announces the meeting “open” and welcomes all the attendees.
  • Apologies: usually the secretary reads out the apologies for non-attendance, if any have been received.
  • Minutes of the previous meeting: these are usually read out by secretary. If anyone has found an error in the minutes, it must be bought to the chairperson’s attention at this time. Any error is corrected on the file copy & initialed by the chairperson.
  • Matters arising from the minutes of previous meetings: these could be matters decided at a previous meeting which required action. E.g. at last month’s meeting the marketing manager was asked to provide a proposal from the company’s advertising agency to devise a TV campaign promoting the company’s recent awards.
  • Correspondence: this is information that has been received that needs to be told to the attendees, it can be an email, a letter, a fax, a letter or even a text message.
  • Reports: these would generally be submitted by various members of the executive or board. The treasurer’s report is usually the first to be considered. Each report would be presented by the person responsible, but not read out. It is usual practice to sent copies of reports, together with minutes of previous meeting to attendees at least 14 days before the meeting.
  • General Business: items such as any business not dealt with in the previous meeting or notices of motion (items that have been foreshadowed from the previous meeting) are dealt with first before any new business.
  • Other Business: after dealing with any items under general business listed on the agenda, the chairperson asks if there is any other business to be discussed.
  • Date and time of next meeting: after any other business has been dealt with. The chairperson announces the date of the next meeting, the time and the place.

To ensure that project team members are clear about their responsibilities, every Friday afternoon will be a meeting and everybody will explain how it is going with the project and their responsibilities. It is very important to do this to make sure that everything is going to be ready at the time that was established.

3. Supporting the project team

    • What you need to do to provide support for project team members to ensure that project outcomes and time lines are met.

Every Friday at afternoon will be a meeting with the project team members to discuss every step, responsibilities and to make sure that the time line will be fulfilled.

    • How you would brief the minute taker on the method for recording the minutes of the meeting.
    • When you typed up the minutes of the meeting and where you would store them.
    • Why it is important to check the transcribed meeting notes to ensure they reflect a true and accurate record of the meeting and are formatted in accordance with organisational procedures and meeting conventions.

As we will have every week a meeting we have to do very quickly and efficient. The purpose is very direct. Me as Project Manager I have to know if everything is going well and be ready at the time.

Every project member team will discuss and if it is a problem we will try to solving together. Every meeting we will make sure that if it is any problem it will be solving and discuss very quickly, but if it is not possible, we will have someone to type what will be discuss and on the other week we will discuss again. It is very important to do this, because in this way we cannot forget anything.
