An Integrated Approach to Mental Health at Work
Manage risk, promote wellbeing & support your people
Following the Masterclass there is the opportunity to undertake a skills-based assessment to further apply and embed your learnings and boost your formal qualifications.
We use a variety of assessment methods to let you show us what you’ve learnt and how to apply it in the workplace. The assessment is designed to be practical in nature, and not meant to cause stress, anxiety or sleepless nights!
There are 4 assessment items, which are estimated to take approximately 8 hours in total to complete. You can also utilise your 1 hour one-on-one virtual mentoring session with expert Pracademia personnel (included as part of your Accreditation Package) to assist with your assessment as required. Bookings available here.
Following successful completion of the assessment, you will be sent a Statement of Attainment for the national unit of competency ‘BSBWHS512: Contribute to managing work-related psychological safety’ delivered by Wellness Designs on behalf of the Australasian Leadership Academy (RTO Code #41012).

Following sign off by Wellness Designs assessors, The Australasian Leadership Academy Pty Ltd (ALA), our partnering Registered Training Organisation (RTO #41012) will then review and process your Statement of Attainment (SOA) in approximately 14 working days for the unit of competency ‘BSBWHS512: Contribute to managing work-related psychological safety’.
If our facilitators have deemed your assessment items to be Not Yet Competent, you will be provided detailed feedback from our trainers and will have one opportunity to resubmit your evidence. You will only be required to resubmit the evidence that is insufficient.
- Some students’ work is returned because it is disorganised and difficult for the assessor to read. Please present your work to a standard that would be acceptable in your workplace.
- If required to resubmit any evidence, please ensure you closely read the assessor’s feedback and instructions for addressing the marking criteria when revising your submission
- Always ensure that you make a backup copy to avoid issues should your submission be lost in transit (this will mean that you will be able to resubmit the required components without having to redo the whole assessment).
- If you are not clear about what additional evidence you need to provide please contact us at email@example.com
- If further resubmissions are required, an additional administration fee of $250+GST will apply per resubmission.
We appreciate that life and work sometimes gets in the way, particularly in the current climate. Assessment extensions may be granted to students who are experiencing difficulty or hardship in completing their assessment. This can include:
- Medical circumstances: where a student’s medical condition has changed to such an extent that he or she is unable to undertake the assessment
- Family/personal circumstances: medical problems within a family, or unforeseen family difficulties, so that it is unreasonable to expect a student to complete their assessment
- Extenuating work commitments
Students who may require an extension should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week prior to the submission deadline to discuss their options.
We encourage all students to successfully complete the assessment, to gain the Statement of Attainment for the associated unit of competency. Students who fail to complete, submit and/or make revisions to the assessment items will be ineligible to receive this.
Participants will not be eligible for a refund or partial refund in this situation.
Under Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) standards, we are bound to keep assessment records for a minimum of six months. All files submitted as part of the assessment process will be destroyed six months after your Statement of Attainment has been issued by the RTO.
