Entry to the course is generally confined to those who hold a BA Degree in Community Development at CIT or its equivalent and have achieved an overall mark of 50%.
Where applicants do not have a qualification at Diploma or Bachelor degree level in Community Development at the specified minimum level, they may be admitted on the basis of a learning portfolio that verifiably demonstrates learning performance equal to that specified by the learning outcomes of the BA Degree programme at CIT at the required level.
This programme requires applicants to undergo the National Vetting Bureau (NVB) process. This requirement is due to the mandatory external placement element of the programme which will bring the applicant into contact with children or vulnerable adults and in which they will assume positions of trust. CIT uses the NVB to help assess the suitability of all applicants on this programme. It is important to note that participation in or completion of this programme may be affected by subsequent disclosure/ discovery.
Offers of places on this programme will be provisional and contingent on the applicant’s satisfactory completion of CIT’s NVB Procedure.
Depending upon the outcome of the vetting process, the Institute reserves the following rights:
- to not register a student
- to remove an existing registered student
- to delay the student’s practice placement modules on course
In all circumstances, it is the applicant/student’s responsibility to proactively disclose any convictions/ cases pending. The Institute reserves the right to inform any placement agency of the existence of any convictions/cases pending.
