Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) Assistance

Our course standard material contains written documentation and limited numerical calculations. We recognise that not all people are able to read, write and perform calculations to the same standards. We will endeavour to help you where we can to accommodate anyone with difficulties with Language, Literacy or numeracy. In the event that a participants needs exceed our skill we will refer the participant to an external support provider such as their local TAFE campus.
