Available Classes

This unit describes the skills and knowledge needed to identify core skill demands in nationally recognised training products, and in workplace, learning and assessment context tasks and texts. It involves comparing those identified demands with the core skills of learners and candidates in vocational training and assessment and providing integrated core skill support to address the identified gaps. The unit applies to vocational education and training (VET) teachers, trainers and assessors who use a range of technical and training competencies to integrate awareness of core skill requirements into their training and assessment. The core skills are described by current authorised Australian foundation skill frameworks. They include digital literacy, learning, reading, writing, oral communication, and numeracy skills. This unit does not include the skills and knowledge required to provide specialist support or the competencies used by experienced VET teachers, trainers and assessors to lead the development of foundation skills support. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. All assignments are completed online making it easy and portable to keep track of where you are up to.

  • Students will be paying this course in two payments, one with an initial fee of $200 on enrolment, with a marking fee of $75 to be paid when the assessor has finished marking your unit.
  • This unit must be completed within 3 months. Extensions (1 month - $50, 3 month - $150, 6 month - $350) can be purchased through the office upon request.
  • All students have 90 days to submit the required documentation on enrolment or WEA Sydney reserves the right to cancel their enrolment.
  • Access to our online learning platform will be issued once we have received and verified all your supporting documentation and USI number.
