Language, Literacy, Numeracy & Digital Support 

We ask all our students to complete an online LLND Test for most of our full qualifications. This assists us in ensuring that you have enrolled in the correct course, or to identify areas where you could benefit from additional support.  

 

Enrolling you into a course above your LLND skills can greatly impact your chance of success. We want to make sure you are training at a suitable level, and reduce the risk of stress or failure.  

 

Additional support and reasonable adjustments can be made to all our resources and training models to help you complete your desired Qualification; however, our staff and trainers will help advise you on the ACSF level best suited to your skills and experience.
