Addressing Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills
A 2013 OECD survey* of Adult Skills found that 44% of all Australians have literacy and numeracy levels below the minimum level to operate effectively in the workplace.
Trainers and assessors can be the first line of professionals to assist people to bridge this gap.
The unit TAELLN411 Address Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills gives trainers a greater ability to support students throughout their learning journey by introducing the core language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) demands of training and assessment.
In this one day program you’ll also learn to:
- Tailor training and assessment to suit individual skill levels, including accessing relevant support resources.
- Determine the core LLN requirements of programs.
- Learn how to access specialist learning support.
- Discover how to assess the current LLN needs of your learners and customise training to meet these needs.
Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has made it a priority to focus on addressing literacy and numeracy gaps in the Australian workforce.
If you’re a trainer and assessor holding TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, you will need to have this unit along with TAEASS502 Design and Develop Assessment Tools 1 April 2019 to remain a credentialed trainer and assessor.
This unit is part of the new credential requirements for TAE trainers.
