Get your RTO on board with LLN and get compliant.
Overcome your RTO’s LLN fear and resistance.
Transform your thinking and practices about LLN.
Change from ad-hoc to consistent.
Deal with LLN – don’t just outsource it!

ACPET is liaising with the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to deliver a workshop that assists members to understand their LLN compliance requirements as VET practitioners and develop skills and experience towards achieving them. ACER has developed the Core Skills Profile for Adults (CSPA), a robust, easy-to-use diagnostic e-tool that automatically generates assessments on incoming students’ LLN needs, from basic to advanced. The CSPA also includes support resources to help address those needs once identified. The tool, that ACPET is encouraging its members to trial, will contribute evidence of LLN compliance. Read more about the tool:

Participating in the workshop (face-to-face or videoconference) or webinar

  1. The PD workshops will support addressing RTOs’ increasing LLN compliance obligations and measuring LLN needs against the Australian Core Skills Framework.
  2. Participants will be introduced to the CSPA tool. ACPET participants will be trained in how to use the tool, including how to interpret results from different groups and understand the strategies needed to close LLN gaps when matched against the LLN requirements of different units of competency within a qualification.  Workshop (not webinar) participants will have the opportunity to purchase discounted login access, under a special licensing agreement with ACPET.
Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:

  • appreciate the role LLN skills have on outcomes in training and workplace delivery and productivity
  • understand the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF)
  • understand the role of assessment of LLN in VET
  • knowledge and understanding of strategies and activities that teachers and trainers can undertake to address and support any literacy gaps that exist and are identified
  • overcome possible confusion about LLN and overcome resistance to developing LLN capability and compliance as an RTO, and
  • transform their own and their RTOs’ approach to LLN and practices in addressing students’ LLN skills needs.
