Course Outline:

This course is designed to support students who need to build their literacy. Working at their own pace, students will be assessed internally throughout their classroom learning to achieve the Literacy Unit Standard Package. There will be an exit and entry point for this course at the semester changeover.  Students need to pass all three unit standards to gain Level 1 literacy.  This course continues into semester two, to make it a full year course if required.

Where Does It Lead:
