TAELLN501 Support the development of adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

TAELLN501 Support the Development of Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills describes the skills and knowledge required to support adult learners to extend their language, literacy and numeracy skills within a workplace or community context. It develops a sound knowledge of the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) and the skills to extend your own practice and the practice of others.

This unit applies to experienced trainers who provide leadership or guidance to others, and who deal with the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) needs of learners for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

TAELLN501 is a core unit in the new TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training.

Duration and WorkloadThe Course Workload & Assessment table available in the Units Tab above summarises the anticipated student workload as per our Training and Assessment Strategy for this qualification. This represents the notional duration of all activities required for the achievement of the learning outcomes. These figures represent a combination of all formal training delivered in this course (however students are not obligated to avail themselves of all offered training and resources), and the anticipated self-study and assessment workload for a student who has no knowledge or skills in any of the content of the delivered units.
Assessment TurnaroundThe turnaround time for assessment submissions received by Plenty Training is approximately 20 working days from the date it is received. This time frame can vary depending on the number of assessment submissions being received at any given time. Once a student is deemed competent in all units they will be issued with their qualification within 30 calendar days.
AssessmentAll students receive a learner's guide and assessment workbooks. You can either work through the assessment workbooks on your computer or complete a printed version by hand.
  • Workshop+ - The trainer will take students through learning material in class, and major assessment projects are completed as in-class learning exercises.
  • Virtual+ - The trainer will take students through learning material via the webinar, and assessments will be discussed but not undertaken.
  • RPL - This pathway is for individuals experienced in addressing LLN issues. It assumes you do not need to be "taught" the material, you just need to complete the assessment workbook and submit it to our assessors.
Student AuthenticityWe are obliged under the Standards for RTOs 2015 to ensure the authenticity of our students’ submitted assessment work. Students are required to:
  • A. Present a valid form of government-issued photo identification card (such as a driver’s license) for our trainer to review at the commencement of all face-to-face classes;

This type of learning environment offers the perfect blend of flexibility and support. Students can attend a full day live session consisting of trainer-led discussions, and participation in group collaboration activities from any location without the cost or hassle of travelling to a particular venue. The only thing needed is a computer with reasonable Internet connection, webcam, and audio functionality. Unit theory will be covered via recorded lessons available 24/7. The live sessions are available bi-monthly, and students may attend as many sessions as required. This option also includes recorded assessment tutorials and access to fortnightly Q&A support sessions.

The virtual classes are a popular option as students are able to attend live sessions to collaborate with their fellow students and also access the unit theory via recorded lessons at any time that suits their study schedule. Students can also re-attend live sessions as many times as is required. Sessions can be attended from anywhere provided you have a computer with reasonable Internet connection, webcam and audio functionality.

RPL is an assessment-only process that is designed for those who possess substantial existing skills and knowledge in a specific industry. It allows people to demonstrate their competence in these skills without first having to be trained. Our RPL kit is based on a combination of evidence submission and a competency interview conducted via phone or teleconference. Those with experience in addressing Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) issues should have no problem completing the TAELLN501 RPL.

If you already have extensive experience in this industry, we offer a simple RPL process to complete this unit. Please speak with one of our academic staff prior to purchasing this unit via RPL.
