LLN and Foundation Skills in Assessment
This webinar will provide examples and strategies on how to address language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) requirements and how to unpack foundation skills in a unit of competency in order to write assessments.
As part of the new Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, trainers and assessors who deliver National Recognised Training must identify language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skill requirements that meet the needs of the learner group.
By unpacking foundation skills in a unit of competency, trainers and assessors are able to identify core skills that are critical to vocational competence within a vocational training specification.
