Yes, our coaches work late on selected nights of every week so we will book in after-hours calls without hesitation. We also have lots of interstate students and our coaches are based in Melbourne, we are also happy to take into account the time difference.
No, at CAL we don’t think you should be put at a disadvantage because you’re not currently working. After all, your course is designed to help you work in the fields you wish to. Talk to your coach about accessing our handy case studies that you can use for your assessment instead of your workplace.
You will receive thorough feedback for every unit that you submit but if you’re nervous prior to submission then send a draft to your coach who will have a look and give you feedback right away.
That’s impossible! There is no chance you will fail. You will receive either a ‘competent’ or ‘pending’ result. If the result is pending you are given thorough feedback as to what is missing or what needs extra work. Then you can review and resubmit to achieve the ‘competent’ result. There is no extra cost or time restriction.
Each of our students receives an individual learning plan and the reason they are ‘individual’ is because they are flexible and designed to fit into your life.

We understand ‘life’ can sometimes get in the way of study, so if it isn’t working anymore, we will revisit your learning plan and amend it if necessary. There is no need for you to rush and sacrifice your learning just for the sake of due dates, that’s not our philosophy – we want you to get the most out of your learning and if that takes a bit longer, so be it!
