Course Description

Course graduates will have developed routine English language skills in the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing to participate in everyday life, community, employment, and further learning.

Graduates will be able to apply their English language skills and knowledge to demonstrate autonomy and judgement in a range of familiar and some unfamiliar contexts. They will be able to deal with a range of predictable routine and some non-routine situations where they need to use English. They will be able to use English to satisfy their own routine transactional, commercial, social and recreational needs, and will be able to use English functionally at work or in further training, in known and stable contexts.

The course also assists learners to develop the associated pragmatic cultural knowledge assumed in an Australian workplace.
