Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment:
Prior to course commencement, students will be required to undertake a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) Assessment. This assessment is used to determine the student’s level of language, literacy and numeracy as required to complete the course and whether the student requires additional support. Students enrolling in face-to-face study will complete the LLN assessment on orientation day. Students wishing to complete their studies online will have a telephone interview with a JTI staff member. Students who are assessed as not having the required level of language, literacy and numeracy skills will be referred to external support networks to work with them on skill development in the required area/s. Students can re-apply for enrolment once they have developed skills in that area.
Assessments you will need to complete to be competent are:
- Short Questions
- Case Studies
- Research Activities
- Observation by a trained assessor in a simulated environment
- Third party by work place supervisor
The Education Support course takes approximately 6 to 8 months. This time frame includes class time and supervised work placement in a facility. On average a learner should allocate 15 hours/week of learning and assessments.
