ADMISSION OF STUDENTS
12. Withdrawal 1 A candidate may withdraw from a course or from any part thereof provided that written notice of
withdrawal is given to the Academic Registrar no later than six weeks before the end of the then current term or semester, or by such later date as the Academic Registrar may in particular cases permit.
12.2 A candidate who wishes to intermit studies must make written application to the Academic Registrar at least one calendar month before the intended period of intermission, and must obtain permission in writing before the commencement of the intermission; provided that in extraordinary circumstances beyond the candidate's control the Academic Registrar may waive the period of notice and the requirement that permission be obtained in advance.
12.3 Candidates who have enrolled for a subject or program, but have not completed the relevant examination by the final due date for that examination and who have neither obtained an extension under 5.2 nor notified their withdrawal as provided in 12.1 or been permitted to intermit as in 12.2 may be awarded an N result in that subject or program and may be dealt with under the rules for unsatisfactory progress.
12.4 A candidate who does not re-enrol to resume studies directly after a permitted intermission may be deemed to have withdrawn without notice and may be excluded from the course.
12.5 A candidate who for sufficient reason (such as having to move interstate) is unable to complete a course by undertaking studies conducted by or under the authority of this College may seek approval under Rule 11 to complete by undertaking studies elsewhere.
Normally, any such approval will be limited to one- third of the requirements of the course; and candidates who have a greater portion of the course to complete will be expected to enrol with another institution and there seek credit for the studies they have completed at Hawthorn. This clause shall not constrain the
approval of programs for the complementary Component of the Diploma of Technical Teaching.
13. Unsatisfactory 13.1 The case of a candidate whose progress gives cause for Progress concern may be reported by the course co-ordinator to
the course committee, which may require candidates to show cause why they should not be excluded from the course.
13.2 Where the course committee deems that a candidate has made unsatisfactory progress, it may recommend that the candidate be suspended or excluded from the course or may prescribe such further requirements as in its opinion are necessary in order for the candidate to qualify for the award.
13.3 A candidate who receives an RP ("Result Pending") or an N ("Not Passed") result will in respect of those results be dealt with according to the following rules:
13.31 An N result in Teaching Practice will lead auto- matically to a recommendation that the candidate be excluded from the course.
13.32 With the consent of the course committee an N result other than in Teaching Practice may be made good; but the candidate will be required — (a) to re-enrol for the relevant part or parts
of the course, and
(b) to complete such requirements as may be prescribed by the course committee.
Provided that a full-time candidate who at the end of a year of an initial training course has not passed in more than two subjects (or an equivalent proportion of an integrated program) may be excluded from the course or may be required to complete that whole year of the course.
13.33 A candidate who is awarded an RP result will be required —
(a) in the case of Teaching Practice, to under- take such further teaching and related requirements as may be prescribed;
(b) in other parts of the course, to complete within a specified time the requirements of the prescribed examination or such supplementary examination as may have been prescribed.

THE CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION
The development of a Centre for Educational Administration at SCV Hawthorn is a direct response to the increasing demand for recurrent education in the field of educational management and administration.
Simultaneous with the growing recognition of teacher education as a career-long process, a clearly identifiable set of needs has emerged among those charged with leadership responsibilities in the education system. The Centre is designed to provide a formal but adaptive structure through which some of these needs can be met.
The basic objective of all the Centre's activities is to increase the professional effectiveness of participants through such activities as:
1. A post-initial course in educational administration, the Graduate Diploma in Educational Administration (A.C.A.A.E. Category PG1). (See pages 119-122 below for course details.)
2. Short programmes in educational management and administration.
3. Consultancy e.g. organization development, school reviews, etc.
5. Small-scale action research projects.
Many of these activities are available in off-campus locations e.g. field-centred training programmes.
THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
The Department of Educational Resources supports the College academic program through the selection, acquisition, bibliographic control, organization for use and promotion of multi-media study materials. Specialist advisory se rv ices in all aspects of effective use of
educational media are provided.
The divisions of the Department of Educational Resources include the Resource Centre, an audio visual workshop, and Media Production and Educational Television Services.
Resource Centre (Floor 3)
The collection of the Resource Centre includes a book and serials library as well as an audio-visual library; the latter contains a variety of materials and the equipment necessary for their use. Members of the Resource Centre staff are available to give help and guidance in the location and use of materials and equipment, and aim to develop in the student an awareness of the various approaches to exploit- ing information sources.
The audio visual workshop has been designed to provide facilities where students can receive instruction in the operation of a wide range of audio visual equipment. In addition, students may use the facilities to produce audio visual programmes to assist them with either lesson plans or college assignments. Staff from the Resource Centre are available to assist users to gain the most benefit from the facilities offered.
The Resource Centre is open for study, loans and reader advice:
MONDAY, TUESDAY WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY FRIDAY
During January, May and September term breaks, the opening hours are generally shorter.
A current SCV Hawthorn identity card must be produced by any person wishing to borrow Resource Centre material. Borrowers are required to pay replacement costs of material not returned on request.
Identity cards will be issued as part of the enrolment procedure.
Introductory tours and other programmes on Resource Centre use are provided for all incoming students.

Media Production In response to academic staff needs, this unit produces Unit audio-visual programs utilizing a variety of media, includ- (Floor 2) ing video-tape, audio tape slides and films. These
productions supplement the college learning program and become organized resources available for use through the AN library of the Resource Centre. Booking and screening of educational films is also organized through this unit.
The College offers a comprehensive counselling service to all its students and staff and to studentship holders in their pre-college years. This service also extends to their families.
The service is fully confidential and is offered free by the College.

Both have had extensive experience in counselling and in the field of education.
The counselling service provides help in many areas including the following:
marital and family problems difficulties associated with teaching problems relating to study
any other problems which may affect a person's academic or personal life.
In addition, tutorials and group discussions are conducted in areas relating to human growth and development, human behaviour, human relationships, family life and the maintain- ing of mental health.
The counselling service reception centre is located on the third floor of the north wing in room 303, which is adjacent to the lift. The counsellors are in adjoining rooms. Mr. John Venables is in Room 303A and Dr. Whiting in room 303B.
Students, staff and studentship holders should feel free to avail themselves of the counselling service.
Student The Student Association has been formed to promote good Association fellowship amongst students and generally to forward the
interests of students.
The student body is represented through the Student Assoc- iation on several College committees. Elections will be held late in February for office bearers of the Student Association and Group Representatives.
