FiT makes every effort to practice cooperation and mutual respect in all internal and external dealings to uphold high quality, professional training and assessment services. The same disciplined behaviour is expected of students as a contribution to a functional learning environment, and as a sign of respect to staff and fellow students.

Professional behaviour
FiT Management encourage any trainer or staff member who is dissatisfied with the behaviour or performance of a student has the authority to:
  • Warn the student that their behaviour is unsuitable, or
  • Ask a student to leave the class, without refund or acceptance into another course, or
  • Immediately cancel the class.

If a student wishes to object or lodge an appeal against the disciplinary action taken, they have the right and opportunity to follow the FIT complaint procedure.

FIT staff are expected to maintain a professional and ethical working relationship with all other staff members, management and students. Breaches of the disciplinary standards will result in discussion between the relevant trainer and FIT, and appropriate action will be taken.

Plagiarism is the ‘wrongful appropriation’ and ‘purloining and publication’ of another author’s ‘language, thoughts, ideas or expressions’, and the representation of them as one’s own original work.


Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like expulsion.

It is quite reasonable to research material in the course of undertaking assessment. All sources, however, must be clearly referenced. FiT’s CEO takes a very strict approach to plagiarism and proven incidents will not be tolerated.
