Course overview

Progress and refine your communication, language, literacy and numeracy skills, and gain increased confidence to enter the workforce or undertake further study.

Within Australia, many people do not possess the literacy and numeracy skills needed to participate fully in modern life and work. Facilitated by expert teaching staff that understand that each learner is different, you will be provided with the support and guidance you need to complete your studies. You will further develop your established communication and numeracy skills.

Take your pick from a range of electives, including word processing, spreadsheet development, work health and safety, mathematics and use of digital technology.

Upon successful completion of this course you will have developed reading, writing, numeracy, oral communication and learning skills at Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) Level 3.
