              52 weeks (including 30 weeks of internal training, 6 weeks of vocational placement, 4 weeks catch up class, reassessment, additional placement (if required), and 12 weeks holidays).

              Before commencing vocational placement, all students must undertake National Police Check and Working with Children Check and complete the theory and practical components of the unit: HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting.

              Students are required to complete at least 120 hours of work placement as part of course requirements.

              GBCA has signed agreements with prospective employers to offer work placement opportunities for its students.

Work placements will be arranged by the GBCA Work Placement Coordinator in conjunction with the student and GBCA trainers.

              The Fair Work Act 2009, under the definition of Vocational Placement in section 12 outlines the rules restricting unpaid work. The Fair Work Ombudsman provides a clear explanation of these rules in the Internships, Vocational Placements & Unpaid Work Fact Sheet.

              Students are required to discuss with the GBCA work placement coordinator if they wish to make their own work placement arrangement.

              Due to the requirement to complete the vocational placement, a final outcome for each unit would not be provided until the relevant component of vocational placement had been completed.

                Course description

                This course is designed for students who are planning to work as a translator (English – Mandarin) typically in the community and business domains in personal documents, government, legal, health, technology, business, community, education, tourism, finance, consumer affairs, insurance, culture, science and commerce and economics. Candidates studying this program have Mandarin as their strongest language.

                The Advanced Diploma of Translating prepares translators to translate texts where there may be significant equivalence problems between source and target text, the subject of the text has its own specific terminology, or there is need to undertake extensive research and translate complex language and concepts. Specific audiences may be found in commerce and marketing, government and international relations – including immigration, both regular and humanitarian – the media, and sectors generally considered to be professional, such as law, health and medicine, technology and science. Assignments may deal with material which requires significant quality assurance processes as the consequences of mistranslation can be far-reaching.
