Skills First: Language, Literacy and Numeracy Workshop

28th Feb 2019 - 25th Mar 2019
09:00 AM - 04:00 PM
VET Development Centre, Level 8 379 Collins Street Melbourne Victoria Australia 3000

The Department of Education and Training (DET) is funding professional development to support contracted training providers to appropriately conduct thorough and valid language, literacy and numeracy assessments prior to commencement of training. The VET Funding Contract requires training providers to consider literacy and numeracy skills when carrying out a Pre-Training Review and this workshop assists with using literacy and numeracy assessments to fulfil this requirement. The information gained from these assessments aims to ensure students are enrolled into suitable training and have access to appropriate support for successful completion.

Workshop:

The VET Development Centre (VDC) has developed an interactive one day workshop to encourage good practice around language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment and skill development. The workshop will cover how to conduct effective LLN assessments, and strategies that trainers can use to support learners’ development of LLN skills for the successful completion of qualifications. The workshop also unpacks relevant 2018-19 Skills First contractual obligations and explores practical approaches to meet these obligations.

Topics covered include:

  • The 2018-19 Skills First Funding Contract with respect to considering the literacy and numeracy skills of an individual prior to commencement of training
  • A brief overview of the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) and ACSF moderation and task validation
  • Understanding the role of LLN skills and implementing a Pre-Training Review against the ACSF
  • Developing and following business processes that support effective LLN assessment
  • Understanding the qualifications on your scope of delivery through ACSF mapping
  • Implementing strategies to support learners to develop LLN skills

Who can attend?

Please note there is a limit of two (2) participants per eligible training provider and four (4) participants per TAFE/Dual sector organisation (taking account of their relative scale and role in the Victorian training and TAFE sector). Each session has a capacity of 30 participants.
