Language, Literacy and Numeracy

Why are Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) skills so important?

Everyone uses LLN skills every day for a variety of purposes – personal, social, training and work.

Different tasks and contexts need different types of reading, writing, listening, speaking and numeracy skills, so people need to continually develop and adapt these skills to suit new situations.

The purpose of this policy and related procedure is to establish guidelines to identify students in need of support for their basic skills in English language, literacy and numeracy (LLN), and also for the provision of these support services to students to enable them to participate effectively in Comtech Trainings vocational courses.

To successfully undertake training we need to know what your current LLN level is to evaluate if you have the skills to complete your course.

Our online Language, Literacy and Numeracy Indicator Tool has been developed to evaluate your skills in:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Learning
  • Oral Communication
  • Numeracy

These are the 5 core skills that make up the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). These skills have been identified as the basic skills that a person needs in the community, classroom and workplace.

The test will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

If we identify any issues with your LLN skills we will provide advice and a referral to allow you to seek help to improve to the standard to enable you to successfully undertake our courses.
