Students withdrawing from a course must put this notification in writing.  Centacare Employment and Training has a Withdrawal Form.  This form is available here, a copy is in the VET Student Handbook and it will be printed for students as requested.  Withdrawal does not have to be on the Centacare Employment and Training form, but it must be received in writing to fulfil the requirements of the Department of Training and Workforce Development’s (DTWD) policy.

Full Refunds

Students who withdraw are entitled to a full refund of the applicable course fee, resource fee and other fees where:

  • A unit is cancelled or re-scheduled to a time unsuitable to the student; or a student is not given
  • A place due to maximum number of places being reached.

Centacare Employment and Training can approve a full refund of fees at any time during delivery if a class is cancelled due to declining student numbers, no available lecturer or due to other circumstances caused by Centacare Employment and Training.

Part Refunds

Students who withdraw for reasons other than those outlined above and who lodge a withdrawal form before 20% of the way between the commencement and completion dates for the unit will be eligible for a full refund of the course fee for the unit and 50% of any resource fee invoiced.

Pro Rata Refunds

The VET program manager can approve a pro rata refund of fees and charges at any time during the course of delivery if students withdraw for reasons of personal circumstances beyond their control.

  • Injury or disability that prevents the student from completing their program of study; or
  • Other exceptional reasons at the discretion of the accountable officer.
