Swiss recognises four different types of Learner Cohorts, and are dependant upon which cohort description best describes the learner, a different training and assessment plan is developed and offered to the learner. The intent of the learner cohort process is to recognise any pre existing learning and knowledge in the PTR and customise the most effective learning plan for the learner.
The four learning cohorts are:
- 1st Cohort: Beginner (Full Study Model) – limited knowledge or skills in the competence contained in this qualification. No recent related industry experience. No LLN
- 2nd Cohort: Intermediate (Partial Study Model) – moderate prior knowledge and skills in the competence contained in this qualification. Limited recent related industry experience, under 1 year.
- 3rd Cohort: Advanced (Assessment Only Pathway) – Extensive knowledge and skills in the competence contained in this qualification. Recent related industry work experience of one to two years.
- 4th Cohort: Expert (RPL Pathway) - Extensive specific knowledge and skills in the competence contained in this qualification; current relevant industry experience of 2 or more years and these candidates are recommended to undertake a full recognition pathway.
