Address the needs of your learners.

A career in training adults inevitably comes with particular challenges and rewards, including different approaches to learning styles and literacy in adult learners. If you are looking to acquire new skills or gain more insight into language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) then this specialised unit is for you.

This unit of competency forms part of the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. By joining this program you will gain the fundamental knowledge and skills to effectively address the LLN needs of your learners.

On successful completion of this workshop you will receive a Statement of Attainment for the TAELLN411 Unit of Competency issued by the Canberra Institute of Technology.
