Recommended Prior Learning

The course is for students who have struggled with year ten literacy and numeracy and are not achievement standard ready. The course also suits year 12 students who have not achieved literacy and numeracy at level one and respond to a smaller, quieter classroom environment. This is also a course for students who are leaving after level one and need some practical skills as well as literacy and numeracy credits to gain entry level into the workforce or courses.
