  • TAELLN411

    Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

    The unit TAELLN411 supersedes and is equivalent to the unit TAELLN401A from 27 August 2013. At this stage, the TAELLN411 is an elective. York College has included the TAELLN411 in the face to face and online TAE40110 programs. 

    We also offer the unit as a stand alone unit if you hold a Certificate IV TAE40110 Training and Assessment  and you do not have the equivalent unit TAELLN401A. 

    About this unit: This unit describes how to recognise the core language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) demands of training and assessment and how to tailor training and assessment to suit individual skill levels, including accessing relevant support resources.
