Course graduates develop foundational knowledge and skills in English language which enable them to interact with some autonomy and to take some initiative in a limited and predictable range of community, work and educational contexts. Students can also develop numeracy skills and knowledge to perform simple mathematical operations in highly familiar contexts.
