​Certificate I in Core Skills For Employment and Training

Numeracy

The numeracy certificate consists of five modules: Calculations, Measurement, Time, Data and Shape. While the modules are designed to be stand-alone, evidence for some competencies is gathered across a number of modules. For example, the performance criteria ‘apply time based rates’ is covered in Measurement and then revised in Time.

Communication

In order to achieve certification students must complete the five work journals, including the embedded web activities and the Deadly Bay interactives. These modules require students to read, write, listen and speak in supported and familiar contexts.

The course is designed so that as students progress they become increasingly independent and able to complete more complex language and literacy tasks.

Deadly Bay

In Deadly Bay, students take the role of trainee workers.  They move through a number of different industries – horticulture, seafood, hospitality, community recreation and tourism.  In order to achieve certification students must complete the five work journals, including the embedded web activities and the Deadly Bay activities. This resource has been made available with permission from TAFE NSW.

Prerequisites

The courses have two common prerequisites. Completing the unit 'My Plan' will allow students to achieve the competencies ‘Formulate and review a training plan’ (QLD190PTA01A) and ‘Plan, implement and adjust strategies to achieve learning goals’ (QLD191MLG03A).

Trainer manual

A guide to implementation is provided to assist educators in delivering the course. It provides information about the units of competency, the Deadly Bay eCourse, interactive PDF work journals and evidence checklists.

Coming soon - Intermediate course

We are developing the Intermediate courses in Core Skills for Employment and Training - Communication and Numeracy. These will be designed to prepare students for the certificate courses. They will build foundational reading, writing, speaking and listening skills for communication and essential numeracy skills.
