Reassessment and appeal procedure

GetLCQ as part of The Learning Place Ltd is committed to providing all assessed candidates (students or learners) with access to a fair and reasonable process for seeking reassessment and appealing assessment decisions. If a candidate is assessed as ‘not yet competent’, or ‘needs more evidence’, they can generate and submit new evidence for reassessment at no cost.
ONE free re-assessments is permitted for any unit standard. After that, there is a $25 fee per additional re-submission. Up to 2 re-submissions are accepted (1x free and 1x at $25).
If the student is not competent after the second re-submission, they need to sign up again and redo the entire course and assessment paying the full fee again.

Any candidate who feels that an assessment decision was incorrect is entitled to appeal the decision. Candidates should first try to resolve any issues directly with the assessor via e-mail to, but this is not always possible.
The following process should then be followed.
The candidate’s appeal of the assessment decision should be in writing to:
The Academic Manager

The request must be received within ten working days of the candidate receiving notification of the assessment decision. It should fully state the grounds for the appeal. Appeals may be brought on such grounds as:
  1. The candidate believes that the assessor failed to follow proper and agreed assessment processes and/or procedures.
  2. The candidate believes that the assessor failed to recognise or acknowledge the achievement of the required standard of performance.
  3. The documented decision differs from feedback received at the assessment.
This list is not exhaustive. Any candidate who feels that credit has been denied them unfairly should use the following procedure:
  1. Once an appeal is lodged, it will be considered and within five working days, a decision will be made as to how to proceed. Further information may be required from the candidate including assessment evidence.
  2. If an appeal proceeds the assessor will be notified and asked to provide copies of the documentation related to the assessment. The assessor may also provide a written report regarding the assessment. The assessor does not receive the detail of the complaint.
  3. All material provided will be reviewed by a moderator and a determination made as follows:
    • The original decision by the assessor was justified
    • The original decision by the assessor should be overturned.
    • A re-assessment is necessary
  4. The result of the appeal will be documented and provided to both parties. If either party disputes a determination based on the first or second of these options, then the third option will be followed.
  5. Should a re-assessment be necessary it will be undertaken by another Learning Place Ltd assessor who was not involved in any part of the process to date.
  6. Re-assessments are done in as short a timeframe as possible.
  7. The decision of the re-assessing assessor is final.

Occurs when a candidate uses another person’s work without giving credit for the source or having permission to do so. Plagiarism will be addressed according to the severity of the instance according to organisational policy. This policy is available upon request by e-mail to 

Your course registration provides us with your personal details. To get someone else to do the LCQ for you is a fraudulent act.
The LCQ is compliance based training and if you don’t know what you are doing, or what you are talking about, you could potentially break the law and be facing fines.
Therefore, when you fill in the assessment you are not to discuss your answers with anyone else, this includes other candidates, workmates or friends. When you complete the enrolment process you are asked to confirm that you have read the Terms and Conditions (what you are reading right now) and that you understand these. If you are found to have copied someone else’s work or discussed your answers with someone you will be considered guilty of plagiarism and will be removed from the LCQ learning platform, pending official judgement from the GetLCQ Academic Manager.
Remember- when you apply for your Manager's Certificate you will have a meeting with a licensing inspector who will ask you relevant questions about the LCQ. It will become obvious pretty quickly that you do not know your stuff if you haven't done the course yourself.
