FAQ

  • What are the different types of courses?

    There are two broad types of courses - facilitated and self-education.

  • What is a facilitated course?

    A facilitated course has been developed to help those who have a passion, interest or responsibility to support the wellbeing of teenagers. This type of course is constructed on the premise that there is a facilitator at the front of a room, guiding one or more students through the topics of the course, using a data projector or smart board. It is the facilitator who will login to access the course.

  • Who is a facilitator?

    In most cases a facilitator will be a teacher or teacher assistant in a school situation. But a facilitator could also be a boarding school supervisor, a parent who wants to supervise aspects of their child's financial education, a home-schooling parent, a youth worker aligned to a government department or non-profit organisation, a financial service professional supporting clients with teenage children, a student union representative, a union delegate helping young apprentices, a tutor, a university student support worker, and so on.

  • Is there flexibility within the course for facilitators?

    Some courses have multiple topics and lessons. Facilitators may choose to do all or just one of the topics. They also have the choice of doing all, some or none of the activities within each course topic. We aim to give the facilitator as much choice as possible.

  • What is a self-education course?

    Any course that does not have the label 'facilitated' is a self-education course. As the name suggests, these courses are for young people to subscribe to and do in their own time. If under the age 18, students may subscribe with a personal username and email address. We expect that students under the age of 18 will have discussed any self-education course enrolment with their parents or caregivers. For students in a school situation wishing to access a self-education course, they will need to check the policy and procedures of the school regarding use of school usernames and email addresses.

  • What information is collected?

    We collect a username and email address for the purpose of maintaining a record of courses being undertaken and the awarding of named certificates. Any payment information should relate to that of a parent or caregiver.

  • What are the privacy provisions?

    It is important to note, that there is NO student information collected through the facilitator model. It is a facilitator's username and email address that is collected as part of the subscription process. This is necessary to maintain vigilance over security, as well as support for the facilitator. Student workbooks can be downloaded by the facilitator and then given to their students. The workbooks are provided as interactive PDF documents. Students can place these workbooks on their own devices, ensuring their responses are secure and private. Through facilitated courses we do NOT collect any student information. We make the assumption that facilitators are over the age of 18.

  • Is there any advertising within the online courses?

    We do not advertise or promote any entity within any course? We do however, where necessary, point students to various external websites and links if there is a purpose of educational learning. We do want students to be critically aware of the 'real-world', and this does require looking at 'real-world' enterprises, media etc. Any sponsors or partners are acknowledged outside the course content.

  • Who are your partners?

    Our partners are listed on a company website. www.thewealthacademy.com.au
