10288NAT - Course in Skills to Develop Learning Pathways

Course Details

Course Summary

The Course in Skills to Access Learning Pathways was developed in response to the needs of a broad range of industry, community services and education sector stakeholders for a national training product for learners whose core skills in learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy represent barriers to gaining the ACSF exit level 1 skills necessary to access further education or training. It is intended to provide participants with the core skills at a minimum Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) exit level of 1. This level is typically required to progress on to meaningful further learning pathways based on learner interests, needs and aspirations across different aspects of life – personal (including higher level core skills), community involvement, vocational training or general education.

Student Outcomes, Career Opportunities and Occupations

While this course meets an identified industry/enterprise or community need it does not have the depth and breadth required of a qualification. Graduates of this course will have the necessary core skills and knowledge to progress to higher level language, literacy and numeracy based units and/or courses, including the Certificate I in Skills for Education and Learning Pathways (aligned to ACSF level 2). Outcomes of this course may also meet the entry requirements for AQF entry level vocational courses where an ACSF exit level 1 is mandatory or appropriate

Course Structures

In order to complete this course, you must:

  1. Complete 9 core units
  2. Complete 2 elective units
Standard Course Structure

This program is typically delivered over a 54 week period, however as it is competency based, it may be possible for learners to complete their training sooner if they have reached the required skill level. If the planned duration is less than that described by the AQF (volume of learning), a rationale detailing how the cohort will have the characteristics to achieve the required rigor and depth of training and can meet all of the competency requirements in a shorter timeframe will be provided. To complete the Course in Skills to Develop Learning Pathways, the learner must complete eleven units - 9 core and 2 electives.
