Take the first step towards achieving your education, training and employment goals by developing the foundation skills you’ll need for future study.

This fee-free course will help you build your literacy, numeracy, communication and digital technology skills in preparation for a vocational pathway or further foundation skills training.

In this nationally accredited course, you will develop a learning plan and identify goals toward education, employment and/or personal growth, as well as plan and complete a project with support.

You’ll read and write about learning, employment and the community by analysing texts, thinking critically, forming sentences and paragraphs using correct punctuation, grammar and spelling, as well as build your confidence to work with numbers, money, metric measurement, design and shape, and simple statistics.

Throughout the course you will also learn to put ideas together, ask good questions and build your confidence when speaking in a range of situations, prepare a simple budget, and learn to operate a personal computer including customising your desktop and managing folders and files.

This course is delivered mixed-mode. To be successful in this course you will need to commit to 20 hours of learning per week, including 12 hours of face-to-face classes. The online activities will include discussions, quizzes to check your learning, research, tests and assessment.

On successful completion of this course you will have developed a broad range of valuable employability, learning and foundation skills at ACSF Level 2, which will give you the confidence to continue on to further vocational education or training at TasTAFE.
