This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of education settings, including public and independent schools and community education settings, who provide assistance and support to teachers and students under broad-based supervision.
Learners must show appropriate levels of LLN to be eligible to complete this course. Learners need a level of English language both written and verbal to accurately collect and report information. Learners will be guided to support LLN requirements / improvements by trainer(s). Learners complete a LLN screen during the Pre-Training Interview process.
Students needing Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) support are identified on application through the Pre Training Interview process. In most cases, LLN support can be provided. Where only a low level of support is needed, the program manager may arrange for the student to receive extra-curricular assistance from the trainer or other qualified staff member. Where extensive support is needed, specialised LLN classes may be set up. Where an applicant’s LLN deficiency will clearly inhibit achievement of learning outcomes and the applicant refuses LLN support, enrolment may be declined.
