TEACHING STRUCTURE

EPITOME is committed to deliver the highest standard of best educational services with the cooperation of professionally qualified faculty/trainer. The institute takes pride in its students and has their best interests at heart and remains empathetic towards their academic and social responsibilities.

EPITOME education is a unique experience! At whatever stage you join us, the successful completion of your course will mean that you have gained the new skills required to enhance independent thought, analysis and action. Mock exams and regular class assessments are set in order to monitor your academic progress.

On all courses, you will be asked to undertake regular assessments. These could take the form of examinations, assignments, group project work etc. Assessments vary according to the programme of study and are important in monitoring individual progress.

All assessments should consist of student input and analysis. Students are reminded that plagiarism is not acceptable.

We expect all students to:

Be able to present their own ideas in their own words.
Be able to apply critique to these ideas in order to produce sound arguments.
Be able to analyse, evaluate, discuss and summarise others work using their own words and examples.

By so doing, students will have the opportunity to show an understanding of the material and that they are capable of using such material in practical application.

PLAGIARISM

If you copy work for assessments, it defeats the whole purpose of the time and money spent on your studies. If your faculty/trainer mark work that you have copied, remember that it is not your progress that will be evaluated, but that of someone else. Thus, their comments will not help you improve and fulfil your own potential.

Copying assessments breaches academic integrity in a fundamental way and constitutes a grave breach of regulations and the Institute will take the necessary disciplinary action.

Plagiarism occurs where someone else’s work is passed on as your own and is therefore one of the most serious acts of deception that anyone in academic life can be accused of.

For this reason, if you are found to have copied the works of others, you can expect heavy penalties to be imposed on you.

At the very least, you will receive no marks for the assessment, which may in turn produce a fail mark for the entire associated unit.

In extreme cases, plagiarism may result in permanent dismissal from the Institute. Such an act will also be recorded in the institute which, in future, could have a negative impact on your academic and career prospects.

CITING REFERENCES

References also give added weight and authority to what you are writing.

An increasing and accessible source of information for assessment purposes is the World Wide Web. It is important that these electronic sources are cited as part of the referencing process.

Specific regulations vary amongst subjects and you will be introduced to them at a very early stage in your course and must ensure that you follow them. The Institute is committed to ensuring that its academic integrity and standards of academic awards are secure and encourages appropriate use technology by academic department to combat plagiarism.

DATA PROTECTION

EPITOME is committed to retain personal data about students in order to monitor their performance, progress and achievements. Data collected must be accurate in order for it to be used fairly and stored safely for administrative and regulatory purposes.

In addition, personal data required and collected will be adequate and will not be kept longer than is necessary for its purpose.

Student obligations

Students must ensure that all personal data provided to the institute is accurate and up to date. They must ensure that changes of address etc. are forwarded to the authority immediately.
Students, who may, from time to time, process personal data as part of their studies must notify their faculty/trainer, who should inform the concern authority.

Data security

Personal data will be secured and personal information is not disclosed either orally or in writing or via Web pages or by any other means, accidentally or otherwise, to any unauthorised third party. Unauthorised disclosure will merit disciplinary action, and may be considered gross misconduct in some cases.
Personal information will be kept in a locked filing cabinet, drawer, or safe, or if it is computerised, be coded, encrypted or password protected both on a local hard drive and on a network drive that is regularly backed up; and if a copy is kept on other removable storage media, that media will itself be kept in a locked filing cabinet, drawer, or safe.
