Course Requirements

This certificate is restricted to post-compulsory school aged learners with evidence of a permanent cognitive impairment/ intellectual disability. There are no course pre-requisites as this course is at foundation level.

Pre-Training Review

Part of the enrolment process, Avenue Neighbourhood House @ Eley must conduct a Pre-Training Review of current competencies. The Pre-Training Review will:

a) identify any competencies previously acquired (Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), or Credit Transfer);
b) ascertain the most appropriate qualification for each student to enrol in, 
c) ascertain that the proposed learning strategies and materials are appropriate for each student
d) ascertain current learning, reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy skills. An important component of the pre training review process encompasses each student completing an Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) assessment.  The (ACSF) assessment enables Avenue Neighbourhood House @ Eley to identify the student’s core skill level in the areas of Learning, Reading, Writing, Oral communication and Numeracy.

The Pre-Training Review will ascertain if this course is suitable for you.
