From office and service industries to construction, engineering and local government. To get the most from a lean program you need to understand how it all fits together, the philosophy, the strategies and systems that eliminate waste, and the thinking, behaviours and leadership that ensure consistent and sustainable gains.

Plagiarism, Collusion & Cheating
Project7 and ILM take Plagiarism, Collusion & Cheating very seriously. There are several different definitions of plagiarism, all of which share the common notion that it covers using someone else’s work and ideas and presenting it as one’s own. Plagiarism is defined by JCQ General and Vocational Qualifications Suspected Malpractice in Examinations and Assessments Policies and Procedures as: “unacknowledged copying from or reproduction of published sources or incomplete referencing”. Under JCQ practice plagiarism does not include collusion or copying from another learner in an examination. These are defined as different forms of malpractice. Project7 defines plagiarism as presenting another person’s published work as your own. Project7 will not include paraphrasing under the definition of plagiarism unless a large, unacknowledged piece of work is submitted. However, Project7 will count direct, unacknowledged translation of foreign text as plagiarism. As a result, Learners must confirm that the work they submit is solely theirs by signing a “learner declaration statement of authenticity”. This will be provided to you on day 1 of your course and again when submitting the on-the-job improvement project assignment. Project7 will not accept work without a signed declaration. Learners must confirm the work produced is solely theirs. Work without a signed learner authenticity statement will not be accepted. Our policy on Plagiarism, Collusion & Cheating is available on request.
