Certificate I in Spoken and Written English
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. They can also begin to develop autonomous learning strategies to start learning English outside the classroom. The knowledge and skills developed through the course provide a firm foundation for further development of their English language skills.
