Course Overview

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have adapted our course delivery to now encompass a combination of remote and flexible delivery methods. This includes interactive online tutorials, facilitated video conferencing (classroom simulation) as well as one-on-one mentoring. Therefore, you will require access to the internet and a computer to undertake this course.

The Certificate 1 in Initial Adult Literacy and Numeracy is designed to develop the literacy and numeracy skills of learners with intellectual disabilities.

 

The program is delivered over three days and is for any student who requires the development of basic literacy and numeracy skills.

 

To cater for individual needs of students we run a literacy stream focusing on reading and writing with basic numeracy and a numeracy stream that focuses on addition, subtraction, weighing, measuring, money and basic literacy.
